The handset, given the moniker OPPO x 2021 has a flexible display and structural stacking to provide a more natural interactive experience.
There are three proprietary technologies used for this, one being the Roll Moto Powertrain that features two drive motors built into a handset to retract and extend the display.

The design is claimed to exert equal stress when the display is moved so that a sudden pull or push will not cause any damage.
Finally, there is the Warp Track high-strength screen laminate which is built from extra-strong steel that is 0.1mm thick at its thinnest point. This gives the device additional resilience.

The retractable storage offers more options for cameras, batteries, speakers and antennas, resulting in a rollable OLED display that can be as small as 6.7 inches or as big as 7.4 inches, giving users the option to adjust the display size based on their needs.
The AR Glass 2021 has a new split design making it very light; it weighs only 117 grammes. It provides an immersive experience due to its Birdbath optical technology that increases contrast, brightness uniformity and pixels per degree.
A number of natural interactions are supported via smartphone, gesture and spatial localisation and there are two fisheye cameras, a ToF depth sensor and a RGB sensor.
The AR application is named CybeReal and creates a digital model of the physical world making use of a real-time spatial calculation AR application that is driven by localisation and digital processing technologies.
Multiple sensors are used for integrated sensing, analysis and feedback and the device also forms a closed data loop via a real-time information map within OPPO Cloud.
This cloud provides storage, computing and data transmission capabilities. If the user consents, data self-repair can be done by updating cloud data in real time according to user feedback.
OPPO founder and chief executive Tony Chen said the company was looking to create more products that enriched users' lives.
“Technology research and development are long-term undertakings. But people often seemed to be forced to innovate because they feared being eliminated by the competition,” he said.
“As technology becomes an indispensable part of people’s daily lives, this has further ignited our passion for using technology as a means to bring the best to people.”
OPPO Australia managing director Michael Tran said INNO Day would help show off the company's commitment to research and development.
“With 5G continuing to rise in popularity across Australia, we will continue to see an increase in intelligent connectivity across multiple devices," he said. "OPPO has been, and continues to be, at the forefront of smartphone and 5G technologies and now we’re excited to be leading the charge into the AR connected world.
“More than ever before are we relying on technology to work, connect and play. The smartphone is at the centre of this and as our portfolio of interconnected devices continues to grow, I, for one, can’t wait to see where this technology will take us."
