Recently, LetsGoDigital, a publication known for patent and trademark-related coverage has been posting stories on OPPO, probably in partnership with the company ahead of its biggest conferences of the year.

Late last week, the publication posted a story on OPPO smartphone design with an extendable display. Now, today, the company itself confirmed that it will be showcasing a similar device at the event tomorrow.

A few hours later, LetsGoDigital has published another OPPO smartphone design patent story. Guangdong Oppo Mobile Telecommunications filed this patent in April but it got approved and published on November 12.

As mentioned in the beginning, this design features a single circular pop-up selfie camera module. That’s not all, it also houses a triple camera setup on the back with 15x hybrid zoom capability,


But interestingly, none of the three cameras seems to feature a periscope lens as all of them are circular in size. However, the renders created by Concept Creator shows a square-shaped module. Additionally, the design also features a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is no longer found in modern premium smartphones.

Further, unlike any other OPPO phone, the camera setup in this design is placed horizontally on the rear panel like on the Galaxy S10 series

and Meizu 17 series.

Anyway, we are not sure if the company will ever launch a commercial smartphone with this design. But the company may use the 15x hybrid camera system in a future device. In fact, it may even showcase it at tomorrow’s event.
