In any case, it’s seemingly that we’ll see this design on a business cellphone someday quickly — Oppo typically broadcasts key know-how in prototype type as a teaser for its subsequent units, to not point out these of sister firm OnePlus. And coming off the again of Oppo’s finest cellphone ever, the spectacular flagship Reno 10x Zoom, this ought to be one to look at.
