What’s cooking

Judging from the patterns of the State intellectual property office (SIPO) of China, the smartphone will be made in the form of books. That is, when folded it will be a common gadget and unfolded — a real tablet with a large screen. The same device will have Samsung. We will remind, the South Korean giant showed off its foldable smartphone at a recent conference for developers.

But unlike the Samsung, the Oppo screen gadget “turned” outward and not inward.

The patent shows several types of smartphones, the only difference is the location of the cameras. On the bottom face can be considered a 3.5-mm connector, the loudspeaker grille and a connector for charging.

 


 


 


 

 

 

Most likely, the Oppo, given its love of innovation, will try to release its folding smartphone among the first.

Will it look the same as in the images of the patent is still unknown.
