OPPO and Vivo foldable phones might finally debut this year

Although it was really inevitable, the foldable phone train was, at least for a while, delayed by last year's more pressing global events. Things seem to be moving forward now, though, with Huawei finally launching its true second-gen foldable and Xiaomi finally jumping on board with the Mi Mix Fold last month. Those, however, aren't the only phone makers with foldable ambitions, and, according to some sources, OPPO and Vivo will also be joining the fray sooner rather than later.

OnePlus is ditching its HydrogenOS for OPPO ColorOS in China

After a rather messy drama during its infancy involving Cyanogen (not CyanogenMod directly), OnePlus opted to strike off on its is own with the blends of Android, HydrogenOS for mainland China and OxygenOS for the rest of the world. Both have been positively received by OnePlus' customers, praised especially for their near-stock Android experience. Change, however, is afoot for both custom OnePlus software but while OxygenOS is just getting a facelift, it has now been confirmed that HydrogenOS is getting the ax, amusingly in favor of OPPO's own custom Android skin, ColorOS.

OPPO X 2021 rollable phone details revealed at MWC Shanghai

While the fate of the LG Rollable is still undecided, OPPO's own take on the rather exotic phone form factor is, at least officially, not headed to the market. Ironically, it is also the one that seems to actually be ready for production. At MWC Shanghai, OPPO naturally didn't miss the opportunity to boast about its rollable OPPO X1 2021 concept phone, both for its hardware innovations and the experiences its extendable screen enables.

As convenient as wireless charging may be at times, their convenience ends the moment you lift the phone off its pad even by just a bit to use it. There have been multiple attempts in the past to solve that problem but now it seems that smartphone makers are making bold steps in that direction. Following Xiaomi and Motorola, OPPO is preparing to show off its own take on over-the-air or OTA wireless charging and it is interestingly using its rollable phone to do so.

While the performance of mid-tier devices has been catching up to high-end premium phones, especially in the 5G department, their photography performance still leaves a lot to be desired. Once in a while, a mid-range smartphone does rise among the ranks and, depending on your needs, OPPO's Reno4 Pro 5G could actually be that.

OPPO smartphone patent envisions a removable camera system

Phone makers have a love-hate relationship with the front camera. It is pretty much the only reason now that we even have top bezels on phones but they have become so critical in the age of selfies and video conferencing. There are various solutions to hiding or removing the front-facing camera altogether, from punch-hole cutouts to under-display sensors. OPPO's latest patent isn't exactly about the selfie camera but its idea of a modular, removable, and upgradeable camera system indirectly addresses that as well.

Rollable phones could give foldables a run for their money

Although Samsung (or actually Royale) started it last year, it was only really this year that foldable phones truly took off, with the more mature Galaxy Z Flip 2 and the Motorola Razr 5G. But even before the seemingly futuristic smartphone can really take hold of the market, it seems that another unconventional design might be arriving next year.
