The vivo NEX
Year 2019 is the year the screen to body ratios of smartphones get bigger. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3’s sliding selfie camera was pretty innovative and now we are hearing that the OPPO R19 and vivo X25 may be adopting a pop up selfie camera mechanism similar to the vivo NEX.
A Chinese leaker posted this claim on Weibo, saying that the OPPO R19 and R19 Pro may have a pop up selfie camera mechanism on the top edge of the smartphone which match the rumours of the OPPO R19 cases that had surfaced before. Meanwhile, the vivo X25 smartphone’s pop up selfie mechanism will be placed on the top right corner of the smartphone, according to the leaker.
Both smartphones seem to have the main cameras placed in the back of the devices. Having the selfie cameras off the screen allows the phones to have an almost 95% screen to body ratio for an almost true bezel-less experience. In my opinion, having the pop up mechanism could equal to a thicker phone. My question now is, how far would companies go for the full bezel-less experience?
