The Chinese consumer electronics company Oppo has applied for a trademark for “Limn” with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). The application was made at the end of December and comes under the Nice classification number 9, which includes computers, tablets, and smartphones. There has been some speculation that Oppo may be planning on releasing a foldable tablet.

LetsGoDigital has spotted an application for a trademark with the EUIPO for a device or brand known as “Limn.” The application was made by a Spanish company that has represented Oppo with previous trademark filings. Naturally, this has led to discussion about what Limn could actually be, with some believing it will be Oppo’s foldable device that we already reported on back in November.

The Chinese manufacturer has already made a name for itself in regard to innovation, proven by the beautiful but slightly flawed Oppo Find X smartphone. It seems the company is not afraid of taking some risks to stand out in a highly competitive market, and one way of doing that would be by producing a foldable tablet.

Oppo has been working on a foldable tablet phone for some years now, and it is expected the company will announce a new product at the Mobile World Congress in February. With other major manufacturers already racing to release foldable smartphones, it could be a sagacious move for Oppo to bring a foldable device to the often overlooked tablet market.
