Oppo is preparing another smartphone with an unusual front camera

The other day we wrote about the new smartphone of the Oppo Reno sub-brand. This is a simplified version of Oppo Reno with an unusual design:

The front camera is not just retractable, it’s kind of beveled. But this is not Oppo’s only idea: the company has patented another smartphone with a retractable front camera.

What came up

Judging by the images in the patent application, this isthere will be a slider, but only by a third. That is, together with the front camera, not the entire rear panel will come out, but only part of it. Moreover, the main camera (most likely double) will move along with it.

The front camera also seems to have two modules.

The flagship Oppo Find X, which debuted last summer, has a similar design. Only it has both cameras hidden under the body - both the front and the main one.

This design allows for smaller framesand completely remove the cutouts so that the display takes up as much front panel space as possible. True, the smartphone still has a small “chin” in its patent documents.
