DUBAI, UAE, Aug. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — OPPO, the leading global smartphone brand, has unveiled a prototype device featuring the “Waterfall Screen” design, which has a stronger visual impact due to an almost vertical 88° curved body that makes the device almost completely borderless. It represents OPPO’s innovative exploration of brand-new form factor of mobile phones. It also reflects OPPO’s exploration of full-screen technology and ongoing pursuit of ultimate aesthetics.
Exploration of new form factors and materials, as indicated by the “Waterfall Screen”, is one of the five major fields of R&D at OPPO. OPPO has rich experience in curved display design as well.
