As the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2020) approaches, we are also seeing more and more new machine slots. Today, Dutch technology blog LetsGoDigital discovered a new patent for OPPO’s design, featuring a front-facing selfie camera embedded in the tiny border on top of the phone. By contrast, the Google Pixel 4 has a much thicker border.

OpPO is understood to have applied for the patent from the State Intellectual Property Office (CNIPA) in 2019 and was approved on February 7, 2020.
It integrates the front sensor into the black border position of the screen to fully enhance the phone’s screen share. The document contains at least 8 color images that show the various angles of the phone, as did 16 product sketches.
The OPPO smartphone, shown in the figure, has a golden look and is designed to be very similar to the previous Reno series.
In the fashion product lineup, it is not difficult to find different types of functional design. Some have pop-up cameras similar to the Reno2, which was released earlier and turned to punching screens.
Looking ahead to 2020, OPPO is likely to launch a successor Toreno4 model, or the long-awaited Find X2. The gap is much smaller than the conventional model, and the new design is either an excellent choice.
The back of the body may be supported by the rear four-camera reno2 with a green raised O-point to avoid scratches when placed on the table, and the 3.5mm headphone jack may be removed.
As for whether the new machine will be able to turn on the commercial use of hidden camera technology, please wait patiently for the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2020) in Barcelona on February 24.
