Chinese phone maker OPPO appears to be one of the most active companies as far as experimenting with new concepts is concerned. After releasing the OPPO Find X with its pop up camera setup and the upcoming OPPO Reno with the “Shark Fin” camera design, the tech giant is now apparently working on yet another very unique device.
Well, we shouldn’t say working as it’s still just a patent, yet we could have said the same about the OPPO Find X in the early stages, but as we all know they did manage to deliver it.
So, what’s this new patent about? As you can see in the images above and below, we’re talking about a phone with a pop-up screen. The display appears to be able to slide from the upper part of the device, just behind the main screen. This would allow you to have even more screen estate if you’d want to.
Same goes for the second patent, which shows a side sliding display design which adds more workable area to the device.
We have to say that both designs do not make too much sense with today’s tech. Because, yes you do add more screen but you also have a bezel inbetween which spoils the entire view. That means you won’t be able to have a real full-screen experience, unless they manage to entirely remove the top or side bezel.
Either way, this is just our opinion on a device that will probably never see the light of day. Do you agree with us or you believe this design can be brought to life? Let us know in the comments section below!
