OPPO is known for developing weird smartphone designs. In fact, the company has already announced a smartphone with a rollable display OPPO X 2021 last year. It also patents interesting designs from time to time. Accordingly, the focus has lately been on designing the front camera. One such has been spotted by LetsGoDigital.
According to the report, OPPO‘s new patent has been published on January 28, 2021. It was applied last year by Guangdong Oppo Mobile Telecommunications at WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization). The design schematics shows a movable front camera for capturing selfies from various angles.
As you can see below, the arrangement on the top of the display upfront operates with the help of a drive motor. Apparently, it uses a guide block placed inside a rail bracket to move the sensor bi-directionally. That is, once the camera app is opened, users can adjust the position of the front camera and move it left/right.
Some of the use-case scenarios are taking side views of users while they are looking straight, Adjust the various compositions of images and capture it in multiple angles, comfortable panorama selfies, and more.
Speaking of which, OPPO’s recent patent with a pop-up camera and reflective mirror showed that a 360-degree panorama could be possible. Another design patent showed a detachable camera layout for selfies/video calls.
Either way, the latest patent also shows a flushed display with minimal bezels on all sides. Further, the report says that it also has an in-display fingerprint scanner which is a no-brainer these days.
