Vivo had one of its patents recently be published by the CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration). The patent is for a foldable smartphone that has a full front screen body.
As per a patent filing with the CNIPA, the Chinese tech giant is apparently working on a “folding electronic equipment” that has the publication number CN112711301A. The patent in question describes a foldable electronic device that includes a housing and a display a screen mounted on this housing. One side of the housing is a non display area, with this region housing the internal components.
Furthermore, the foldable smartphone from the brand is also designed to offer a full front screen body experience, which means that there will be no visible seems, notches or chin at the front. This is further supplemented by the folding mechanism itself, allowing for a better reading, gaming, and overall viewing experience, which is hinted by its supposed inward folding design. Unfortunately, it is unknown if the device would also sport a under display selfie shooter as well.
Keep in mind that this is still just a patent so we have no way of knowing if the company is actually working on such a product or covering all bases. So stay tuned, as we will be providing updates when additional updates or other interesting developments surface regarding the company’s foldable smartphone.
