OnePlus Concept One teases ‘invisible camera’

Last updated:

Back in December of last year, OnePlus revealed that the company will introduce its first-ever concept phone, the OnePlus Concept One, at CES 2020.

OnePlus has built an image for itself trying to offer innovative solutions to its customers through the smartphone models it releases. There has been a lot of talk about a concept phone that the company will be unveiling at the CES 2020 at Las Vegas this week, but no one was sure what the device was going to bring new to the table.

Now the company has itself issued a handout broadly explaining the concept and calling the device ‘OnePlus Concept One’.

The OnePlus Concept One comes with a new technology not seen in smartphones so far. It involves the use of a special electrochromic glass that makes the cameras invisible to the naked eye when not in use.

“This is a special type of glass where organic particles are used to create various tints in the glass when an electrical field in inducted. The light transmission properties of the glass can be altered by subjecting it to a different voltage.

This changes the nature of the glass from being transparent to translucent and vice versa,” the company said in a statement.

This technology is applied in the fields of aeronautics and even automotive to enable the glass to reduce the glare. The windows of Boeing 787s use this glass and technology as do the McLaren 720s.

OnePlus, in its own efforts to introduce path-breaking technology in the field of smartphones, has now adopted this electrochromic glass for the OnePlus Concept One smartphone and the rear panel of this device made of glass obscures the cameras beneath its surface until the camera app is activated.

This makes it an invisible camera. The rear panel therefore looks a nice and clean surface, an aesthetic marvel.

The OnePlus Concept One special event will be held from January 7 to 10, 2020, from 10 AM to 5 PM, at the Wynn Las Vegas
