Oppo teases its own foldable phone

Dongguan: Adding to the line of foldable phones of the future, Oppo has teased its first such model that follows the likes of foldable phones from Royale and Huawei and folds outwards.

As Engadget reports, Oppo VP Brian Shen took to Weibo to share the prototype of the foldable phone. The prototype device features a hinge design and comes with a camera strap on the back that shows up in folded form.

The device was ideally meant to be showcased at the MWC 2019 but the company canceled it, saying, “it wouldn’t have been meaningful”.

However, Oppo is not completely rejecting the idea of introducing a foldable device and based on the response of users, it may release a commercial version.
