mobile with invisible camera: OnePlus Concept One smartphone price and secification launch date
The company has collaborated with McLaren to build this new smartphone that for now remains a concept device, but could soon become a smartphone that will be sold to the masses. Unveiling the smartphone at the event, OnePlus revealed that the inspiration for the smartphone has been drawn from McLaren’s 720S Spider luxury sports car, which features a retractable hardtop glazed with an electrochromic glass panel.
As per the company, it has used the same electrochromic glass at the rear panel of the OnePlus Concept One smartphone that was used in the car. It further revealed that the company has used organic particles to create changes in the glass covering the camera lenses to create the invisible glass effect.
The glass itself is quite unique. It can shift from opaque black to transparent within 0.7 seconds. OnePlus has also revealed that apart from colour shifting technology, the glass also brings to the table practical benefit as it acts as a built-in polarizing filter for the camera.
OnePlus claims that this is the most advanced electrochromic glass ever made and the design of the Concept One shows two glass panels sandwich the organic material between them and measure just 0.1mm each, for a combined thickness of just 0.35mm. The glass panel is also being claimed to use almost no power to operate.
Apart from this, OnePlus hasn’t revealed any details about the specifications of the device but considering its OnePlus, we expect the phone to be packed with only the best that is available in the market right now.
In terms of the design, the phone features at the back in McLaren’s signature Papaya Orange shade. The frame of the phone has been revealed to have been made out of an aluminium alloy that’s treated with a new vapour deposition process to give the phone its thin gold finish layer precisely.
