Oppo Invents Multiple Foldable Smartphone Designs

New patents show that Oppo is joining the upcoming foldable smartphone segment.

Foldable smartphones will become a reality. Several companies are busy working on solutions including Samsung, Apple and Huawei. In the past year, Oppo has been granted various patents by WIPO, all related to foldable smartphones.

The most recent patent was filed on March 22, 2018, according to the patent snoops at Dutch LetsGoDigital. After a request for early publication, the patent was granted on April 6, 2018. The patent describes a foldable phone with one large flexible display. Once the device is folded, the display is positioned on the outside. The mobile device can be folded by means of a rotating mechanism.

Another patent shows an Oppo smartphone with three displays. Lastly, there is an Oppo foldable phone with built-in airbags. These airbags make it possible to bend the flexible screen frequently, a durability problem that many manufacturers struggle with. It’s also a good alternative to the Motorola foldable smartphone with heating element, which we have covered last week.n the past year, Oppo has been granted various patents by WIPO, all related to foldable smartphones.
