While the phone may never see a commercial launch, there is a possibility that the technology will reach other phones in the company. The OnePlus Concept One smartphone that was exhibited at CES had an extravagant orange color.
At CES 2020 in Las Vegas, earlier this month, OnePlus introduced its OnePlus Concept One smartphone with exclusive technology that hides the camera module on the smartphone. While the phone may never see a commercial launch, there is a possibility that the technology will reach other phones in the company.
The company has now shared a completely black prototype of the OnePlus Concept One smartphone and it looks as or more impressive than the version shown initially.
The design of this smartphone prototype is almost the same as that presented earlier this month. The only difference is the choice of color. The model presented is orange, it comes in classic black.
The company also says it plans to use the leather back cover design for its future phones.
Kevin Tao of OnePlus responsible for the design team also says that the use of leather on any future device will be done using “environmentally friendly” materials.
The OnePlus Concept One has a triple vertical camera system, carefully folded under an electrochromic glass. When current is applied to the glass, it can quickly change from opaque to transparent. This special type of glass is used for the panoramic roof of some luxury cars, aircraft windows and also for buildings.
The triple chamber configuration remains invisible under the electrochromic glass. However, when the camera is turned on, the sensors are instantly visible. When the camera application is closed, the triple chambers become invisible again. The company says it only takes 0.7 seconds for the glass to change from transparent to opaque or vice versa.
In addition, the glass can also become semi-transparent and can act as a neutral density filter that can assist in capturing better photos in bright sunlight. It consists of two 0.1 mm glass panels, including organic material. The combined thickness of both glasses is only 0.35 mm and uses minimal amounts of energy to operate.
