OPPO is one of the innovative smartphone companies in the world. OPPO list of innovation contains very regular technologies like Beauty function, Motorised Rotating Camera, VOOC charge. The company was the first to pioneer HDR and High-Speed Recording. Also, their previous patents reveal a Foldable smartphone in work which can bend easily. A new OPPO patent was leaked today which is related to display technology.
2017 was a year of bezel less and full-screen display. We have seen various types of displays like complete 3 side bezel less displays like the Mi MIX 2, displays with narrow bezels on top and bottom with curved edges like the infinity display of Samsung Note 8, bezel less display with a section on top like the Apple iPhone X display and other displays with small modifications. Most of the regular Chinese brands like Xiaomi, Vivo, OnePlus features a big display with small bezels with a fingerprint sensor at the front or back.
The new OPPO patent is leaked by a user on the Chinese media platform Weibo which revealed a touchscreen with a slit on top. The design looks like the new display of the Apple iPhone X with no bezels. According to the image, the patent was filed on January 9, 2017, and its date of authorisation proclamation is September 29, 2017.
It is not clear whether OPPO uses its new design in the upcoming smartphones. But we have seen images with this design suggesting the device could be Oppo R13. The front view of the Oppo R13 features a virtual home bar. On the backside, the device has vertically stacked dual rear cameras along with a neon green logo of the company. It seems that the phone will be available in two colour options of black and white.
