OnePlus Concept One: First ever disappearing camera

OnePlus Concept One

OnePlus have been hinting the new version McLaren Edition in early January which is named OnePlus Concept phone. OnePlus Concept Phone was unveiled at the CES2020 finally. It is the industry’s first-ever smartphone to feature an electrochromic glass panel that in fact can turn transparent or opaque to reveal or hide the rear cameras making it an “invisible camera”.

OnePlus Concept One Design:

OnePlus collaborated with McLaren on the OnePlus Concept One phone’s design, drawing inspiration from similar technology used in McLaren’s 720S luxury sports car, which features a glass roof panel that can alter its tint so as to control the amount of light allowed through. Additionally, the OnePlus Concept One design integrates both glass and leather, using the same stylish, premium quality leather specially tailored for McLaren’s own cars. The Camera part is covered with electrochromic glass and the rest is designed with McLaren’s very own Papaya Orange shade leather so that it makes it look extremely stylish. The frame of the phone is made of an aluminum alloy treated with a new vapor deposition process so that the thin gold finish layer can be deposited precisely, resulting in what the company calls a subtle shine.

OnePlus Concept One Camera:

The electrochromic glass on the OnePlus Concept One contains organic particles that react to current, therefore helps to shift to the desired state. Besides this party trick, it also serves a practical purpose as the glass is said to double up as a polarising filter which is ND8(Neutral Density) Filter for the cameras when shooting under a very harsh light. This is implemented in the Camera App in Pro mode and allows for a lower ISO and longer shutter.

One of the outstanding challenges was that the glass needed to be made exceptionally thin and light without leaving it fragile. OnePlus Concept One has thinner glass panels that are just 0.1mm each, as a result of which it makes a combined  total of only 0.35mm. That’s as thin as a display glass protector film.  WOW!!!!

OnePlus Concept One Features:

It has the same features as of OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition. It wanted to bring a change in the smartphone industry, especially in the Camera department. We might see this design in future smartphones of OnePlus.
