OPPO today showcases a new “Waterfall Screen” technology. Visually, it is stunning as it makes the device almost bezel-less or borderless. For those who hate curve screen, I am not sure if this 88 degree (almost vertical) curve screen is for you.
Demonstrated on an unnamed device, OPPO pushes the limit of curve screen. It almost wraps the screen behind to form a borderless look.
Check out this video that I compiled based on OPPO’s media video.
I am not sure if the sides of the phone are sensitive to touch or not. For most curve screen, the issue is that when you grab the phone, you might accidentally touch the screen.
Here is a comparison with a “normal” screen.
