Lately, OPPO has been patenting designs and utilities related to foldable smartphones. Only last week we covered a weird foldable design by the company with a block structure. Now, another design patent by the Chinese smartphone maker has emerged imagining a phone with an extendable display.
This patent was filed by Guangdong Oppo Mobile Telecommunications with the CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration) at the end of April 2020. But it got approved and published on November 13. As usual, LetsGoDigital was the first publication to find it.
The new OPPO design patent is identical to the upcoming rollable smartphone by LG, which is reported to launch next year under the company’s ‘Explorer Project’. This mysterious LG phone could debut as ‘LG Rollable’ but we don’t have any name for this OPPO patent.

The front design of this device is clean without any notch or punch-hole on the front. Hence, it could feature an under-display camera. Further, the sides are rounded with no buttons or whatsoever and the back of the phone only houses a single camera.
Above all, the most important part of this design is the screen. The display on this smartphone can be extended by pulling it upwards. Hence, it can be transformed into a traditional smartphone from a tiny phone from years ago.
