For the OPPO brand, this is a considerable milestone. However, OPPO X 2021 has not yet gone on sale because there are still some obstacles before it passes production.
A recent report hinted that with the fine-tuning of the display, the expected launch date is 2022.
The manufacturer of the display is the BOE , detonated pointed out, the display may have to wait until 2022 to put into mass production.
This may cause a long wait time scale to OPPO, since the rollable LG plans to release a smartphone in the first phone. In the second half of 2021, Samsung will also work on this concept.

If the release date of the first rollable smartphone is earlier than the expected release date of 2022, they may also record other content in the record of the first rollable smartphone.
