Adstoppi Blog | Oppo share more info about a possible foldable phone

Published by:


The foldable phones are coming, and it seems Chinese handset maker Oppo is the latest to join the fray. On a tour of the company’s headquarters, Oppo told multiple news sites it would have more to share on this topic at Mobile World Congress next February.

According to AndroidWorld.nl, product manager Chuck Wang said: “We know Samsung and Sony are working on a foldable phone, you can also expect more news from Oppo on that topic, maybe at MWC.”

It’s not clear what exactly Wang meant by this, but we do know Oppo is interested in foldable phones. The company has patented a number of foldable designs over recent years, including a device that folds outwards twice to triple in size. One news site, Tweakers, interpreted Wang as meaning that Oppo will have a foldable device to show off at MWC, but it’s not clear if this is the case. We’ve reached out to Oppo for more details and will update this story if we hear more.

If the company is readying a foldable device, it will join a number of manufacturers in what could be the next big thing in mobile. Samsung has already shown off its first foldable with what it’s calling an Infinity Flex display (thought to go on sale in March 2019 for a staggering price); Huawei is reportedly planning its own foldable phone launch before then, and both Lenovo and Xiaomi have teased prototypes. Importantly, Google has also given its blessing to this coming wave, with official support in Android for their changing displays.

Whether or not foldable phones will turn out to be a legitimate trend or just another flash in the tech pan remains to be seen. But for companies vying for attention in the competitive mobile industry, the oppo-tunity to jump on the bandwagon is too good to pass up.

Correction, November 29th, 07:00 AM ET: A previous version of this story quoted news site Tweakers that Oppo would be unveiling a foldable phone at MWC. It appears the site may have taken a quote out of context.

Twitter won't hide Donald Trump's racist tweets

Twitter won’t be treating President Donald Trump’s recent tweets telling congresswomen to “go back” to their supposed home countries as a violation of its hateful conduct policy, the company confirmed to The Verge. That means the tweets won’t trigger a flagging system Twitter announced last month, intended to limit the reach of banned content by public officials. On Sunday, Trump attacked a group of congresswomen — implicitly the Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) — by saying they came from “countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe” and telling them to “go back” to “the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” All four representatives are women...

The inventor of the Flyboard Air, Franky Zapata, says he plans to cross the English Channel on his jet-powered hoverboard on Thursday to mark the 110th anniversary of the first airplane flight between Britain and France, The Guardian reports. Zapata says he’ll fly between Sangatte and St Margaret’s Bay in a crossing that should only take around 20 minutes at speeds up 140 km/h (around 87 mph). The crossing will be a challenge for the French inventor, who has previously said that it takes between 50 and 100 hours of practice on the company’s previous water-powered Flyboard just to be able to stand up on the jet-powered Flyboard Air. Speaking to The Parisien Zapata said that his last flight, a demonstration flight over the crowds at Bastille Day, used about 3 percent of the...

The US Army says that it will conduct live-fire tests of a new Robotic Combat Vehicle next year. While the tests won’t involve vehicles ultimately slated to go into combat, they will be used to show off various technologies that may later be incorporated into platforms in the future, and how soldiers might eventually utilize them on the battlefield. The RCVs are built on an M113 armored personnel carrier, and will be controlled by soldiers in a vehicle called the Mission Enabler Technologies-Demonstrators (MET-Ds), an upgraded Bradley Fighting Vehicle. The MET-Ds will be equipped with cameras and a remote turret, which crew members will control with touchscreen panels. The first phase of testing will begin next March at Fort Carson in Colorado, and will feature a pair of MET-D vehicles...

Facebook is taking another shot at news curation by hiring a “small team” of journalists to select stories for its upcoming News Tab, a section of its mobile app that’s due to begin testing later this year. Although The New York Times notes that most of the articles in the News Tab will be generated algorithmically, the top stories each day will come from this team of under 10 veteran journalists. The News Tab will be separate from Facebook’s main feed. Facebook has struggled with how to surface timely news stories to its users. At its best, its previous “Trending Topics” section would often surface stories that were old and sometimes bore little relevance to the topic in question. However, at its worst, the algorithm that underpinned it would actively promote false and...
