In collaboration with a Japanese design studio Nendo, Oppo announced a new slide phone concept that consists of three hinges. Thanks to these hinges, users can fold the smartphone into seven different sizes, according to their convenience. The same as Galaxy Z Flip (Review), this Oppo concept phone also opens vertically. The company calls it a “slide-phone.” According to a teaser, the smartphone will have a four-camera configuration placed in a horizontal mode.

The video also shows that, like Samsung Galaxy phones, Oppo’s phone could also come with an S pen like the hidden pen. According to Oppo’s tweet, “Dragging a folder exposes 40mm of screen with simple functions that don’t require a full screen. These are ideal for applications such as call history, notifications and music player interfaces.” After the second fold, the 80 mm screen will be exposed, ideal for clicking on images and playing games.
