Chinese phone maker Vivo has a new concept smartphone coming soon with interesting new technology that could make it to future smartphones. Known as the Apex 2020, the concept smartphone will debut in just two days.
We have been seeing teaser images for the newest Vivo Apex for a while now. The images have revealed that the phone is going to have a screen with extreme curves at the sides that will bend at a whopping 120-degree angle and a circular camera at the back that will hold a periscope lens alongside the main lens.
Now the company has shared another teaser for a mysterious camera module that will be able to rotate 360 degrees.
The circular camera module can be seen surrounded by lines that indicate a 360-degree motion, hinting that it may be similar to a PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) camera used in television studios and sports events. These cameras are often used for stabilizing images to deliver a much clearer result, so if Vivo has succeeded in making it for phones, this could result in a major breakthrough in smartphone photography.
As mentioned before, the Vivo Apex 2020 is set to be revealed on February 28 through an online event.
