The Chinese company OPPO at the end of January this year filed a patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for the design of a smartphone with a pop-up display. The Dutch portal Let’sGoDigital presented the first renders of the device, based on patent documents.
What is the auxiliary screen, is unknown. Previously, OPPO only released smartphones with pop-up modules for a selfie camera. According to the source, the second display is attached to the main body with a telescopic mechanism.
Supposedly, it serves for control settings: for example, when watching a movie, the second display may provide media controls. The front camera in the device is placed in a narrow upper frame.
Also, the manufacturer has filed a patent for the design of a smartphone with a side sliding display, which can be useful as a controller for games or a keyboard.
Recall that Reno, a sub-brand of OPPO, will show on April 24 in Zurich its first smartphone with an unusual pull-out module . The new model will also receive a 10-fold optical zoom .
