Less than a week after notable tech leaker Ice Universe published images of the upcoming Vivo Nex 3's display, designed to produce a screen-to-body ratio over 100%, Oppo posted pictures of a functioning prototype smartphone with similarly curved edges and virtually no bezels.
Taking borderless smartphone innovation to new heights, we're thrilled to give you a first look at 'Waterfall Screen' technology.— OPPO (@oppo) July 29, 2019
What do you think the screen-to-body ratio is on this prototype? pic.twitter.com/99AQKh9ZgH
The company refers to this innovation as "Waterfall Screen" technology; the left and right sides of the device's display curve back nearly 90° so that the bezels are not visible from the front.
Oppo neglected to offer any more details about the prototype or when we can expect to see this technology implemented into a commercial device. However, considering that Vivo's Nex 3 appears to utilise a similar design and technology and is rumoured to launch in 2019, Oppo's iteration likely won't be far behind. – AFP Relaxnews
