OnePlus Concept One to be the center of attraction at CES 2020
OnePlus has unveiled a video of its first concept phone, OnePlus Concept One device, featuring an “invisible camera” achieved using electrochromic glass.
OnePlus is the first in the industry to explore the applications of electrochromic glass in smartphones. By exploring innovative ways to combine cutting-edge technology and smartphones, OnePlus is again boldly challenging the conventional practices of the industry.
Since its inception, OnePlus has been designing flagship products based on a “Burdenless” philosophy, which aims to deliver premium products that empower people in the most natural and comfortable fashion. The OnePlus Concept One encompasses this idea by using electro chromic glass, an electronically tintable glass, to cloak the rear camera lenses behind a clean glass body and reveal them only when they’re in use.
The glass on the OnePlus Concept One uses organic particles to create various tints in colour when subject to an electrical field. When a different voltage is applied, the light transmission properties are altered, allowing the glass to shift back and forth from transparent to translucent.
The technology is currently used in the aviation and high-end automobile industries to greatly reduce glare, such as on the windows of the Boeing 787s and the McLaren 720s. By leveraging this dynamic glass solution, the OnePlus Concept One is able to maintain a clean and unbroken back cover while simultaneously delivering a premium and unobtrusive hand feel experience to its users.
The OnePlus Concept One will be on display to media and the general public during CES 2020 in the Palmer 2 showroom at Wynn Las Vegas from 7 to 10 January.
