Foldable phones and 5G are some of the hot topics in MWC 2019. Huawei has launched its foldable phone Huawei Mate X and a few days back on 20 Feb Samsung unveiled its folded phone along with Samsung Galaxy 10 lineup. Xiaomi has already confirmed its foldable phone through a video that the company is working on a phone with dual fold technology.
Now it seems like Oppo is also working on its foldable phone to bring it to the consumers if it sees its demand. Oppo was the first company to host its event at Mobile World Congress on Saturday where it showed its 10X camera module and it seems like Oppo has more plans for the future.
The company is said to be working on the foldable phone and its picture has surfaced online on Chinese microblogging site, Weibo, by Oppo VP Brian Shen. The picture showed the phone from almost all the angles and seems like the design is inspired by Huawei’s Mate X.
It’s not confirmed that Oppo will showcase it’s folded phone at MWC 2019 or not but reportedly Oppo is not planning to ship it unless it sees its demand from customers.
This Oppo foldable phone comes with the one-sided folded design like Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X (the picture shows like that). On the other hand, Xiaomi has already revealed it’s a dual folding phone which is likely to come later in 2019.
Leaked pictures showed that Oppo foldable phone with two cameras paired with a flash and in black colour. No internal specifications and official name are revealed by oppo yet about this folding phone.
The design, according to pictures Oppo foldable phone shows thick bezels as compared to Huawei and Samsung’s folded phone. This can be used as a tablet when unfolded and as a phone when folded.
As far as the mobile phones launches are concerned, the competitors are working hard to compete with one another in the Mobile World Congress. As we have seen so far that Oppo has announced it 10X camera module, Xiaomi launched its Mi Mix 3 5G variant along with Xiaomi Mi 9 globally, Huawei launched its Mate X and Nokia launched it’s Nokia 9 PureView and there are many products launched at the MWC 2019 thus far.
