One feature that’s receiving attention is the electrochromic glass for the rear camera. This technology took a considerable level of in-house development, with Shenzhen trying to mimic the McLaren sunroof. Subsequently, owners of the future handset can hide the three-piece camera modular with this technology-assisted glass. It will make the camera units transparent and opaque, making it nearly impossible to view in any light source. However, it should be noted that this technology hasn’t ever been used with a smartphone and could backfire after prolonged usage.
The frame-chassis of a mobile phone is a significant component, as it holds everything in place.
