Best Bezel-Less & Borderless Phones With Sliding Camera – 2018
Well folks, if you are done the notch fight and want something more of 2018 then Vivo and Oppo have done it, a ‘Pop-Up Camera’ and a “Sliding Camera”. Sounds crazy, huh? It might cause that’s how these down the line companies brought innovation with a simple solution to bury the notch fever by Apple. While it was definite that a notch itself was an added beauty, the idea was to maximize the screen ratio and it was obvious that sooner or later it has to disappear from the screen as well. But the gut-turning engineering dilemma was the front facing camera, which has no room in the bezel-less display.
The pop-up camera mechanism put forward by Vivo and Oppo was one possible solution for the issue and they had beautiful demonstrated how well the thing could go into our daily smartphones as well. Though the tech inside isn’t fancy, there are so many design questions raised mainly regarding waterproofing and structural integrity. While the former is yet to be addressed, the latter one doesn’t seem to bother much. Though the idea was born in yesterday’s rain, both companies managed to comprehend it neatly and put it inside the modern day smartphone helping them achieve a 95% or more screen-to-body aspect ratio.
