OPPO the smartphone manufacturing brands seems to be working in a mobile gaming controller which is expected to arrive with an earphone storage compartment. We are not claiming this, an old patent of the gamepad filed back in September 2019 has surfaced on the web along with an image of the patent. According to the report, the patent was published in March 2021, but the company is yet to say anything about the patent. It’s still uncertain whether OPPO is seriously planning to launch the mobile gaming controller or not. Let’s have a closer look at the patent and find out some more information.
OPPO Mobile Gaming Controller Patent
As per the report, the OPPO mobile gamepad surfaced on the web with filing number CN112451961A. The patent image of the gamepad seems to be similar to an Xbox style controller. According to a report from IT Home the patent carries the title “game controller” which is published by OPPO Guangdong Mobile Communications.
The analogue sticks are placed much away from each other like the Xbox controller and it also houses a phone holder. The patent design shows that the phone holder will provide enough space to attach the USB port and headphone jack. Numerous gamepads come with a phone holder but block the USB port and audio jack of the phone.
Besides, there is a dedicated compartment for accommodating headphones. According to the report, this housing will allow users to store the headphones when not in use. The users can easily access the earphones without misplacing them. Do note that the slot at the bottom of the game controller is capable enough of accommodating only TWS earphones. However, it’s still a mystery how the company is going to execute the design.
We have also noticed a button in the centre of the gamepad which seems to be elevated off the controller. So far OPPO is yet to make any announcement about the mobile game controller and we are even unaware of the model name. It recommended to take this information with a big grain of salt and wait for the official announcement.
