Taking mobile tech to another level, OnePlus, at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020, has unveiled its Concept One smartphone with a very amazing, or say magical camera feature intact.
Concept One showcases the device with a glass that comes with colour changing capabilities. The same tech can make the rear camera both invisible and visible to the human eye.
The never seen before tech (on a phone) has been borrowed from car brand McLaren.OnePlus had partnered with McLaren to use the sunroof glass concept of its McLaren’s 720S Spider luxury sports car, on the Concept One phone.
During the launch event, CEO and founder of OnePlus, Pete Lau said,
“The rear camera lenses are hidden by the dynamic electrochromic glass and only become visible when the camera is in use. This optimal solution is what OnePlus calls “Electronic CMF”, a new approach in industrial design.
The tech actually consists of infusing some kind of organic particles that turn the rear glass transparent when the camera is turned on and the same glass opaque when the camera is not in use.
Beside magical, the feature is quick as well. As per OnePlus, the Concept One takes a mere 0.7 seconds to go from completely transparent to completely opaque.
Nevertheless, the device is not available for sale as of now as it’s a mere concept unveiled by the phone maker. The price of the phone is also a mystery.
