“Clamshell” is back in fashion

Experiments Oppo with flexible screens began a few years ago. The company has recently patented one of the possible variants of the design of the bendable gadget. His screen is on the outside, as in Chinese FlexPai. Meanwhile, Samsung has decided to hide the panel inside and added another display to operate in the folded state.

In Oppo didn’t say anything about the characteristics of the future smartphone, nor an estimated date for the final release. It is not excluded that at the mobile Congress show only an early prototype. The company is slightly ahead of LG — it bendable smartphone expected at the January CES 2019. But Huawei promises to delight fans throughout the year.

According to rumors, the circulation of folding devices Samsung will be not less than 1 million. The price of the so-called Galaxy F could reach $2000. Other manufacturers also are aiming at the premium segment.
What else?

In the first half of 2019 Oppo will release in Europe its first 5G smartphone. And the models with front camera behind the screen expect by 2020. We suspect that we are talking about a fully hidden module, as the lens hole will appear in the Oppo R19.
