One plus has just unveiled its first concept smartphone. The one plus concept 1 and when there’s a lot of hype and curiosity around it. So what’s it all about well we went hands-on with it.
The new one plus concept one and everything concept II about this. Here on this back as you can see clearly this is another 1/2 spoon that’s being created in partnership with McLaren. The concept 1 obviously has the orange papaya leather stitched on the back in a typical racetrack style. I think it looks great but the highlight here is the new glass the 1 press concept. One features an electrochromic glass which makes the cameras on the spoon invisible when you’re not using them. Yeah, it’s pretty simple it’s all black seamless flush on the back and cools looking when you’re not using them. But the moment you open up the camera app the cameras on the back become visible it’s all super cool.
The feature has been inspired by the sunroof in high-end McLaren cars. The McLaren 720s have the same electrochromic glass that can go from transparent to translucent width. So here is the concept of one’s invisible cameras coming alive in beautiful slow-motion well. That was pretty cool and that was slo-mo but I realized the cameras become visible fairly instantly as you can see here one per sec as it takes 0.7 seconds to go from dark to visible and I’d say yeah that’s pretty much about right. It’s fairly fast so the question is how does this technology work well like. I said the one plus concept one features an electrochromic bag and this solution features two layers of glass with the electrochromic material in between. There’s also indium tin oxide on both the glass panels to make them conductive.
Now it can use the current from the phone to change the tint on the glass or it can make things darker or lighter depending on when you’re using the camera. So you must be thinking about the power consumption that must be hired right well. According to one plus the battery, consumption isn’t all that different. They say that the cause of one has the SATs in battery life as the one plus 7T pro. The phone the concept phone is based on so yeah that’s pretty good also. If you’re wondering about the durability it should not be a problem because on the top is the same gorilla glass with the electrochromic layer below it.
Anyway, as you must have noticed the electrochromic glass is hiding the three cameras as well as the LED flash. So what happens when you just use the torch aka the flashlight feature. Well here’s me doing exactly that and as you can see the cameras are still hidden but the LED flash is in action and it’s visible and when I turn off the torch the LED flash just goes back to hiding pretty awesome.
One plus has added a new camera feature that uses this electrochromic glass in the pro mode of the camera. You can see this new and eight option which means you can enable it to take long exposure shots or darken shots in times then you need to balance the exposure. Yeah, this feature might come in handy for a lot of people so why is the one press concept one a concept phone. I mean everything seems to work just fine.
So wide of concept tag well one plus has a very simple answer for this. C1 plus want to test out these invisible cameras more extensively to see how they perform in long term usage. If they’re reliable enough plus their factors like cost and production. We can buy however I’m still betting on the one plus 8T. Coming back to the one plus concept 1 is there anything else special about this concept phone. Well, the rest of the one plus concept phone is just the 1 plus 7T Pro McLaren Edition. The processor that curved displays the battery everything remains exactly the same. Here are the one plus 7T pro and the one plus concept one side by side and you know what the concept one just looks better.
Yeah, it’s just a bag that is changed but it looks a lot better on in all. The one first concept one’s invisible cameras aren’t really a game-changer. I mean this new tech does not really solve a problem or anything but boy do they look cool the invisible cameras. Tech just makes up for a beautiful and seamless looking phone with knowingly camera bombs or cutouts. It comes in wireless charging that’d be great anyway what do you think of the WordPress concept what do you want this take in your future smartphones.
