Right from the early days of smartphones, manufacturers sought to thin the front edges and optimize the display area. Smartphones are becoming more and more modern, as well as possessing a bigger screen but not making it “oversized” is easy to use for a long time.
In recent years, this process has been accelerated quickly thanks to the ‘screen cutting’ technology, which enables this component to reach all borders and still take a small area for selfie cameras – an indispensable component on smartphones, especially for those who like to take photos of ‘take a selfie’.
On the contrary, this approach creates a drawback that creates a defect on the screen, blocks the software interface and simply doesn’t look good! The smartphone screen has been rectangular for a long time, so creating new styles makes many people unhappy.
Smartphones have ‘teardrop’ cuts from many different brands
To solve this problem, smartphone companies have switched to a newer design: the camera is stuck. Instead of placing the front camera on the edge to occupy the area of the screen, it is separated into a separate part, with the motor to be able to ’emerge’ and ‘indent’.
Built-in camera ‘pull out’
Only when users take a selfie picture, is this camera cluster pushed up, but when not in use, it is completely hidden in the camera body.
There are 2 great advantages of this design. First of all, cameras with recessed bulbs have traditional rectangular screens, no ‘rabbit ears’, no cuts, no defects to cut into the content being displayed.
Along with that, this technology is also cool, nothing better than when you need to take a selfie photo with your friends, take your smartphone and show them the camera system pushed up from the camera body – unique and very different.
This form of design has quickly become a trend of high-end smartphones, and has been applied to some mid-range devices for everyone. Some of the products that we can mention are OPPO F11 Pro, OnePlus 7 Pro, Huawei P Smart Z …
A company that often produces smartphones with traditional design and often does not follow the market trends is that Samsung in the beginning of this year also launched a smartphone with a motor-built camera called Galaxy A80, showing that This is not a temporary trend but will be the mainstream design of the smartphone market in the future.
The biggest concern of experts as well as users when this type of design appeared on the market is durability. The first smartphone with a retractable camera is the OPPO Find X, announced by the company that it can activate this mechanism 300,000 times, which can be used more than 80 times a day for 10 years.
The cycle of changing a smartphone of a normal person is about 2 years, for those who hold the phone for a long time, it is only 5 years so the machine will definitely be replaced before the camera mechanism has a problem. Until now after nearly 1 year of launch, no one has complained about the OPPO Find X, proving its durability is not “mediocre” at all.
So what is the next step? We have solved the feature problem, and now it is time for aesthetics to be taken into account. The OPPO Reno has just been announced by Chinese smartphone company last month and is about to dock in Vietnam, equipped with a shark fin camera with a strong design, which first appeared on the market.
The 16MP selfie camera is like a component of the machine, not something that is ‘pushed up’ when used, making the overall design much more seamless. On the front we have a high quality Super AMOLED FullHD + screen, and of course there are no cuts at all.
The product line comes in two versions, with the more advanced version called Reno 10x equipped with Snapdragon processor 855 m.
