This might be a flexible display provided to Huawei by BOE, I filmed BOE's flexible displays for phones here and here you can also see all my other flexible display videos that I have been filming for the past several years here

OXI on Lapdock, runs Windows 10 apps in Android

Posted by Charbax – January 13, 2019

Laurent Alaguero of Auxens shows their latest version of OXI the Desktop productivity user interface for Android phone's external displays, such as here demonstrating running on the BQ Aquaris X2 Pro which has Displayport USB Type-C support. Here demonstrating OXI running with the Lapdock launched on crowdfunding on Indiegogo starting at $100. OXI can bring in and run Windows 10 apps in resizable Windows inside of this Android user interface, no need to boot all the way into a Windows 10 remote desktop just pulling in the needed Windows apps over the Internet, using virtualization, streaming, with servers that can nearby and served through Enterprise's existing Windows server infrastructure. The Windows 10 apps can feel like they are running locally on Android with minimal lag. Auxens is now reaching out to Smartphone manufacturers to try to pre-install OXI on shipping phones with Displayport USB Type-C support. Hopefully they can integrate by getting some API access with http://shadow.tech cloud PC service and hopefully OXI comes with the Cosmo Communicator that is being developed and which I filmed here
