Now that LG has formally left the smartphone marketplace, a glaring gap in the revolutionary and experimental kingdom of the space could become more evident. Then again, OPPO for one appears committed to help fill it, using its own patents for strange new pop-up selfie-camera forms and 2-in-1 phablets. Now, the tipster Digital Chat Station asserts that its upcoming concept device is the latest word on the”port-less” trend.
Some OEMs, even Apple, allegedly think this kind of totally monolithic, uninterrupted form-factor is your long run. Then again, recent examples of possibly real-world products based on the idea have crashed and burned, even on crowdfunding websites.
However, OPPO has reportedly addressed one of the Meizu Zero’s important sticking points at a new prototype: it’s still effective at wired charging, rather than being completely reliant on wireless power. It’s a USB port for this purpose, which, according to Digital Chat Station, is”absolutely integrated” (interpreted ) inside the concept cellphone’s structure.
OPPO can also be reportedly as fond of this new possible tendency of electrochromic glass because is its sibling OEMs OnePlus and Vivo. Its brand new model apparently uses the material to hide its back cameras, as in the recent Concept One. It’s also rumored to conceal its own front-facing shooters with under-display technology.
Finally, it’s also now said to drop physical buttons in favor of pressure-sensitive alternatives. Then again, its leaker has yet to mention when or where this new device may be showcased.
