vivo filed their first foldable smartphone patent that's equipped with a stylus compartment


It seems that LetsGoDigital spotted a patent filed by vivo, hinting the company might be working on a foldable smartphone that comes equipped with stylus support, as well as a dedicated compartment to store the stylus. While not much is known in regards to the release date, this does give us a better understanding of what to expect from vivo when the device is available in the global market.

Based on the patent, it seems that the stylus’ tip is made out of a soft rubber material which helps prevent scratches during use. When not in use, it seems that the stylus can be stored inside the hinge of the foldable phone which is quite unique.


However, do take some of the information with a grain of salt, as the final design of the smartphone is subjected to change in the future. Not only that, but there’s also no news on the Malaysia release date, exact tech specs and local pricing for now.
