Jojo, 04 Jan 2020Crap. I thought this was for the front camera. Who cares about the back. Who looks at the back... moreEven though I would hope that this is a "teaser" and the real revelation will be an invisible camera at the front, most probably the technology ATM cannot do it reliably, therefore the first step is to do it at the back side (where is much simpler)
May be oneplus 8 will hide front camera... This notch display era will be over than... Lets do it..
Crap. I thought this was for the front camera. Who cares about the back. Who looks at the back of their phone?

The Nokia N8 had somewhat of a similar technology where the camera lens was hidden by a mechanical shutter which open as soon as you opened the camera application. That was such a cool featured that amazed me every time I used it. The overall technology implemented in their smartphones were ahead of it's time.
abwx, 03 Jan 2020when it works, it contributes nothing when it fails, the camera doesn't work Agree. And, more glass on a phone? Just what we need.
pufanu, 03 Jan 2020Wow, this has got to be the most useless feature ever put in a smartphone yet. Gotta agree.
So basically, it uses the same technology as an Electronic Variable ND, to completely hide the cameras.
It's a neat trick.
abwx, 03 Jan 2020when it works, it contributes nothing when it fails, the camera doesn't work It contributes to make the phone more expensive. So it gives them the excuse to increase the price again until they release, at least, two above $1000 phones a year. They'll do sooner than later. The old OnePlus is history... Now if the Premium OnePlus but with fake materials in their alleged premium phones.
Filipe, 03 Jan 2020No, it does not! The iPhone 11 is the ugliest phone ever made and this concept is the smartest... moreFor me iphone 11 looks pretty good from rear if you ignore the camera bump but,hey different peoples have different opinions :)

Bring concert to life for the back. Gives a bit of style and personality

add it to the list of things we don't need but will make the phone more expensive
Hopefully the concept is better than it looks. This looks rather mediocre, to put it politely.
Ouch, now we will have a reduced battery time due to hide the cameras with an electronic glass ... in addition to adding another layer blurring the images.
