OnePlus has finally kept true to its promise of unveiling its long-awaited concept smartphone – OnePlus Concept One. The concept smartphone was developed in collaboration with British automaker, McLaren.
The design was inspired by the McLaren 720S Supercar. Wrapped in a premium Papaya Orange leather, and a streamlined black glass sliver running down the middle of the rear. What’s interesting is the glass panel on the back that is electrochromic. This glass allows itself to be altered, either to reveal or hide the rear cameras. When it’s in use, the glass activates and reveals the camera, when it’s not, it gets covered.
“The glass of the OnePlus Concept One uses organic particles to create changes in transparency so that the glass covering the camera lenses can shift in an instant from opaque black to entirely clear, presenting a clean, unbroken surface when not in use, the ‘invisible’ design is a manifest example of OnePlus’ ‘burdenless’ design philosophy. This optimal solution is what we call ‘Electronic CMF’ — a new approach in industrial design.”OnePlus CEO Pete Lau
OnePlus hasn’t mentioned whether the Concept One will go into production and be released to the public. So stay tuned to The AXO for updates on whether that will ever come to fruition.
