OPPO patents smartphone with pop-up camera on the side
Pop-up cameras are usually placed at the top of the device, but in the case of OPPO’s new patent, it’s going to be placed on the side.
The OPPO patent that was found in the CNIPA’s (China National Intellectual Property Administration) database shows a full-screen smartphone with a side-mounted pop-up camera near the rear camera module.
The patent also reveals other details about the phone including a USB-Type-C port and a headphone jack.
Again, this is just a patent. There’s no word yet if OPPO will actually produce a phone with this camera design in the near future.
