Massive wildfires are currently raging in the US West Coast. The skies have been colored orange and red, but you might not be able to accurately capture it with your phone camera. Many people have noticed that auto white balance on phone cameras is severely affecting orange and red hues. This makes this whole tragedy look way less dramatic and alarming than it is.
The world’s first phone with under-display camera is finally available
We heard last month that the world’s first smartphone with an under-display camera was about to be launched in September. And indeed, here it is: the ZTE Axon 20 5G is now finally available and the under-display camera is more than just a concept.
The world’s first smartphone with an under-screen camera is launching on September 1st
While there have been a few prototypes and concept phones from the likes of Oppo, Xiaomi and Samsung, it seems none of them will win the race to release the first smartphone with an under-glass selfie camera. No, that honour will be taken by Chinese smartphone manufacturer, ZTE with their new ZTE Axon 20 5G.
No specific details have been mentioned about the specs of the under-glass selfie camera contained within the phone, although XDA-Developers says it’ll be 32-megapixel. ZTE says that it will be “the world’s first mass-produced 5G smartphone featuring under-display camera” and will launch on September 1st.
Visionox is ready to begin mass production of smartphone displays for under-screen cameras
One of China’s largest OLED manufacturers, Visionox who provides panels for flagship smartphones like Xiaomi’s Mi 10 and Mi Note 10 has announced that they’re ready to begin mass production of smartphone displays compatible with under-screen cameras.
The concept has been around for a little while now. The first was unveiled in June last year, by Oppo. But it was mostly a proof-of-concept prototype showing off the idea rather than an issue-free device that was ready for prime time. It faced one big challenge, which Visionox claims to have beaten.
Vivo’s X50 flagship smartphone expected to have a huge gimbal-like camera module
Vivo’s next flagship smartphone will have a giant gimbal-style camera, a teaser posted to Chinese social media site, Weibo suggests. The gimbal-like smartphone camera technology was first shown off in March in Vivo’s Apex 2020 concept phone.
According to The Verge, Vivo was inspired by the way a chameleon’s eye works and its effectiveness and that this system 200% more effective than the types of optical image stabilisation found in most smartphone cameras today. If the implications in the teaser hold true, this will be its first implementation in a commercial device.
OnePlus to remove 8 Pro’s controversial camera “x-ray” feature
Users of OnePlus 8 Pro recently started to notice that the phone’s “color filter camera” can see through plastic and some fabrics. It caused some concerns because, in some instances, it can basically see through clothes. Because of that, OnePlus has now announced that they are temporarily disabling the feature.
Spy camera comes to phones with the OnePlus8: its camera sees through plastic and clothes
OnePlus-s latest flagship phone, OnePlus 8 Pro, was announced only a month ago, promising pretty stunning camera performance. But it seems to be even cooler than we thought. While there weren’t too many details about the phone’s “color filter camera,” it turns out that it has a sort of X-ray vision. It can see through some plastic objects, and even through clothes!
Strike four: Huawei caught passing DSLR images as smartphone camera photos again
Huawei found itself in the center of another scandal when they passed DSLR photos as they were shot with the company’s smartphone. If you think this sounds familiar, you’re right. Huawei did it before, not once, not twice – but three times. And I guess the third time wasn’t a charm so they did it again for the fourth time.
The camera in Vivo’s new APEX concept smartphone features a built-in “gimbal”
It’s amazing how small they can make tech these days. Vivo has unveiled its latest update on the APEX concept line. Famous for showing off some pretty insane concepts for future phones, many of their predictions have come true. Popup selfie cameras, under-screen fingerprint readers, and almost completely button-and-bezel-free designs.
In Vivo’s latest concept device, the front-camera has come back, sitting underneath the display, but the main rear-camera also sees a pretty significant new feature. Taking optical image stabilisation (OIS) to the next level, they’ve essentially built it into a gimbal.
This phone uses AI to stop people from shooting and sharing nudes
Teenage years are a tricky period made almost entirely of rebellious acts and bad decisions. Some of the latter could include taking nude photos and sharing them with the wrong people. But Tone Mobile has a potential solution to this. The Japanese company has launched Tone e20, a cheap phone that uses AI to recognize nudes. If your kid snaps an inappropriate selfie, the phone will recognize it and automatically delete it.
