Like the Mate X, it comes with single large OLED panel that wraps around both sides of the phone when it’s folded, rather than being folded away on the inside.
That means, the prototype of the foldable phone by Oppo, has a flexible display that provides two screens when folded and a single screen experience when unfolded.
