- OnePlus has revealed a concept phone at a press event at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The OnePlus concept phone features a McLaren inspired design with an electrochromic glass technology to hide the camera. This new technology could change the transparency of the camera concealing glass, which OnePlus is referring to as the “invisible camera”.
- OnePlus says that Concept One’s glass uses organic particles to create a change in transparency so that the glass covering the camera lens can be completely clean in an instant from opaque black.
The glass panels are 0.1 mm each for a combined total of only 35 mm. Glass also offers a practical advantage, doubling as a built-in polarization filter for the camera that can be used to obtain sharper, more finely detailed shots under bright light.
This invisible camera has been rigorously tested and calibrated for speed. The OnePlus concept takes 7 s to completely clean the One Glass with solid black paint, even faster than the camera fully activates itself. OnePlus claims that this is the fastest speed yet achieved in the industry, and it uses almost no power. The company has spent about eight months and tested over a hundred different options for smart toothbrushes.

The company made its comeback at CES 2020 to showcase its cutting-edge technologies, to develop innovative products that transform everyday consumer experiences
