New concept of a folding smartphone solves the problem of oblique views on selfie

Where only manufacturers of smartphones do not push the front camera, so that the screen does not interfere.
First sent down, but it did not catch on. Then they began to cut the screen in every way. Finally, inserted into the sliding module.

To bring the screen to the upper physical boundary of the smartphone, this allowed. But another problem remained unresolved, a much more pressing one - the direction of looking at self.

Selfies are made by looking at the screen - it’s understandabletaking a picture wants to control facial expression. But here there is a problem - if you look at the screen, you do not look at the lens, which means that the photo will be set aside. Either by an effort of will, you force yourself to look at the camera - and you do not see that a smile has twisted from the tension.

This suggests the option of placing a selfie camera in the center of the screen, but if it’s easy to decorate a slot on the desktop with an icon, then in applications it will of course interfere

Finally, the problem is solved. Guess which company.

The smartphone will be completely deprived of a selfie camera, its roleperforms the main. It is in the center of the front, due to the fact that the upper third of the smartphone is bent on the front side. An additional screen is placed on the rear panel under the camera, which occupies the entire width of the device, but extends to the fold line. Thus, in a folded smartphone, the camera is in the center of the two-part screen - the lower third of the front and auxiliary.

This, of course, is only a thought about a conceptThey will bring the mind for a long time, but there is already a remark - it would be better to stick the camera into the cut-out in the screen so that the strip between the parts of the screen in the folded state would not be so wide.

According to rumors, this design is being developed not only by Apple. Place your bets - will Samsung have time to show prototype first or Huawei?

The described option is only suitable for topdevices - folding smartphones for some time will be excessively expensive for the mass market. For smartphones, the idea of ​​dividing selfie cameras to opposite corners of the screen is considered more simply, so that artificial intelligence can then fix the direction of looking at the photo.
