The smartphone design we all want is finally real, but it’s not an iPhone or Galaxy device

The smartphone design we all want is finally real, but it’s not an iPhone or Galaxy device We’ve had all-screen smartphones for a few years now, but all designs so far come with a compromise. 

Smartwatch designs from companies that aren’t Apple or Samsung are starting to get pretty trippy If the color rendering of Oppo ’s idea you see above (prepared by LetsGoDigital) looks familiar, that’s When the watch is “ folded ” and back to its smallest state, the extra display is stored in the watch case

A new OPPO patent shows us what could be the first folding smartwatch ever seen in the wearables industry. According to the images filed by OPPO , the design of the watch partly takes up the square look of the Apple Watch. A forced choice, since the display must unfold on itself.

Huawei Mate X and Samsung Galaxy Fold could be in for some stiff competition if this folding smartwatch from Oppo is ever released, because who needs a folding phone when you can have a futuristic smartwatch instead?

The details of the innovative smartwatch have recently been revealed in a patent, which was granted to Oppo last year. The drawings show a slim wrist-sized single display penel, which can be increased by as much as 200%.

Dutch blog LetsGoDigital has mocked-up a series of high-resolution images of the mysterious folding device based on the line drawings filed with the Oppo patent.

Huge leak gives us our first look at Samsung’s redesigned Galaxy Note 10 We’ve been talking about the Galaxy Note 10’s rumored design for a few weeks now, as an influential leaker kept telling the world that the new Note model will deliver a few significant changes compared to the Galaxy S10.

It shows how the single panel could be used for quick interactions, such as checking the time or reading notifications, as well as how the larger display could be used to watching videos, surf the internet, or replying to messages.

The patent also demonstrates multiple methods of unfurling, including a folding display method, similar to the folding smartphones we've seen, and a rollable display, which is similar to the LG Rolling OLED TV we saw at CES.

If Oppo actually manages to manufacture and release the design in this patent, it'll make the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X and Royole Flexpai look comparatively pedestrian. However, that's a pretty massive if. After all, Samsung and Huawei have both delayed their first foray into foldable smartphones due to issues with the flexible OLED panels.

The first comes in the form of the P Series, which this year saw the launch of the P30 and P30 Pro. The second, usually announced in the latter quarter of the year, is the Mate Series. The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are expected to arrive in October, if former release patterns are followed, and a leak from Slashleaks has shown us what the rear of the Pro model might look like.

The new device appears to sport a sleek metal design with a round watch face, respectably thin bezels and a trio of physical buttons to the right of the screen. There’s a lot we still don’t know about Oppo ’s mysterious smartwatch , including the device’s specs, price and any launch plans the company might

However, we think the form factor of a folding smartwatch could be more useful than the large folding tablet-like designs of Samsung and Huawei.

As it stands, smartwatches like the Galaxy Watch Active, Huawei Watch GT, and Apple Watch are able to display text messages, news alerts, important emails, and more, but push users to their smartphone to read more detail, or reply using their voice, or use pre-canned responses.

If this folding Oppo smartwatch ever does make it to a wrist near you, it's likely going to be a very pricey piece of technology – expect Rolex money – because based on what we've seen so far, foldables aren't cheap!
