At the CES 2020 Consumer Electronics Show, OnePlus’s first Concept One was officially released. The OnePlus Concept One looks beautiful, covered in papaya leather used in McLaren supercars.
The OnePlus Concept One back cover uses the same leather as the McLaren 720S sports car seat. The leather of each mobile phone is hand-made, after complex steps such as cutting, thinning, stitching and fitting. It also uses McLaren’s classic design-Huanli Orange to bring speed and passion into your hands.
OnePlus Concept One uses a complex and environmentally friendly PVD process for the first time. The surface of the aluminum frame of the mobile phone is plated with a layer of real gold, which presents a high-quality texture comparable to jewelry.
In industrial design, color, material, and finishing (color, material, finishing) are called CMF, and E stands for electronic. In order to solve the current multi-camera arrangement design problem, OnePlus first proposed the ECMF solution, which uses electrochromic glass on smartphones.
OnePlus Concept One’s rear camera is hidden under the electrochromic glass. It can only be seen when the camera is used. At other times, the camera is hidden in the glass, showing a neat, uninterrupted, and no burden. Beauty.
On the OnePlus Concept One, by controlling the color of the back cover glass, it is given the function of an ND filter, which is called Alternate ND. It allows us to shoot special effects such as “silk flowing water” during the day in the camera’s professional mode.
This is currently a very thin electrochromic glass in the entire industry. Reduce the thickness while ensuring the discoloration effect, OnePlus has made two special designs. First, the EC material was repeatedly adjusted. Under the premise that the thickness of the EC material was only 0.05 mm, the industry-leading transmittance contrast was achieved. Second, non-polar glass balls with a diameter of less than 0.05 mm were added to ensure that the glass did not deform. In this way, the glass thickness is greatly reduced.
The glass ball added inside the electrochromic glass bypasses the camera area and adopts advanced ITO coating technology to achieve a transparent conductive film with lower square resistance and higher transmittance. Special AR coatings are added on the inside and outside of the glass to reduce light reflection. By optimizing the optical design of the upper and lower glass, ITO, and AR films, the transmittance is increased to another height so that it will not interfere with imaging.
After a long period of debugging, the electrochromic glass of OnePlus Concept One can achieve a process from black to full transparency in just 0.7 seconds. The speed is even faster than waking the camera. You will not feel the electrochromic Inconvenience of discolored glass.
