You've heard of flip phones. You've heard of foldable phones. But have you ever heard of rollable phones? Smartphone manufacturer Oppo is here to stretch your imagination with a brand new concept designed to offer a big-screen experience in a portable package – no hinge required.

And if we're honest, it looks like magic. Could the X 2021 be rolling into our best camera phones list next year?
