OPPO applies for a unique smartphone stylus patent

The S Pen stylus, which comes standard with the Samsung Galaxy Note series, has been a favorite of consumers for years. But a recent patent has revealed that OPPO, a domestic handset maker, is also interested in creating a new model with a special stylus design. Previously, manufacturers such as LG, Huawei and Asus have also introduced stylus-enabled mobile devices, but the new OPPO patent style is even more eye-catching.

Unlike the vertical stylus slot used by Samsung’s Galaxy Note series, however, this new OPPO machine has a stylus slot directly above the body.

When not in use, this stylus seamlessly blends into the upper frame of the body. In addition, the patent implies that it has more features.

On May 8, 2019, OPPO filed a new patent with the State Intellectual Property Office (CNIPA) entitled “Control methods for electronic device styluses”.

In recent years, consumer demand for large-screen mobile devices has been growing. However, long-term hand-held use, it is easy to cause user fatigue. But having a stylus can greatly improve the situation.

For understanding, LetsGoDigital has teamed up with Dutch designer Jermaine Smit, also known as Concept Creator, to create a range of 3D renderings.

The tip portion of the stylus blends seamlessly with the fixed terminals in the upper left corner of the body and charges the stylus. However, due to the width of the body, the outer housing of the stylus cannot be too long.

OPPO has a built-in battery, microphone, and easy-to-stretch storage design for this stylus. In contrast, Samsung uses supercapacitors that can be filled in 40 seconds, but last only about half an hour.

In other ways, OPPO’s new stylus can be used as a remote shutter for the camera, even with a stylus, under Bluetooth. It remains to be seen whether the future Find X2 will work.
