Oppo patent reveals new smartphone design with pop up display

    Oppo's latest patent looks something straight from the future.

    |

    Vivo with its APEX smartphone gave birth to the trend of pop up cameras. Many other OEMs seems to be working on similar designs as it helps to offer a higher screen-to-body ratio. Taking the design a notch higher, Oppo seems to be working on a smartphone with a pop display. At least that's what the latest patent filing indicates, reports LetsGoDigital.

    The patent images show a secondary display popping out from the primary display. The design might sound impractical at first, but there can be a lot of used cases such as viewing content on the primary screen while the secondary screen can be used for other applications. The images also suggest that the front-facing camera will be placed alongside an earpiece on the top bezel of the primary screen. There no notch or a punch hole to house the front camera.

    Besides, the company has also filed a patent for a smartphone that will have a horizontal sliding mechanism. The secondary display will come in handy as a keyboard or remote control while playing games. Well, this is just a patent and there's no certainty that the device will make it to the production stage. The patent only means that the company is currently exploring the idea of such a form factor.
