Those trend-setters from Oppo are at it again, releasing a so-called “waterfall display” technology which seems to be just a flexible OLED screen sloping further towards a phone’s edges than the current handsets with curved screens.
Samsung pioneered this curved edge display technology, and started off with the huge slope on the Note Edge way back in 2014. Fast forward five years, and its edge panels are now simply curved all very slightly for aesthetic purposes since larger curves proved to be everything but ergonomic.
Who knows, the company may find better applications for the extreme curves and the “waterfall display” is certainly an engineering marvel, yet those big fat icons on the side are just begging to be touched inadvertently while handling a phone with big, fat screen slopes on the side, what do you think?
