Elephone, the China-based local smartphone manufacturer, is all set to jump on the pop-up camera bandwagon that was started by Vivo. The company is working on Elephone PX smartphone, featuring dual front-facing elevating cameras and the phone’s images have now surfaced online.
The image reveals that the phone will come with an elevating mechanism for the front-facing camera, which houses two camera sensors. While the design concept for elevating mechanism is similar to that of Vivo NEX, the company has opted to change its placement position. In the Elephone’s device, the pop-up camera is placed in the center instead of the left side.
Due to the elevating front-facing camera, there’s no need for a notch on top of the display to house the sensors. Further, the device offers higher screen-to-body ratio with minimal bezels surrounding the display.
The leaked images also reveal that the smartphone will come with triple camera sensors on the back. The back camera setup seems similar to that of Huawei P20 Pro, which is the first smartphone to feature a triple camera setup. There are two sensors with an LED flash in between. Below the dual-camera setup, there’s another camera sensor. The entire setup is placed on the top-left corner.
The phone also comes with a fingerprint sensor mounted on the back panel, thus it’s confirmed that the phone will not come with an in-display fingerprint sensor which most of the devices with elevating mechanism offers.
We recently reported about the Elehone PX’s pop-up camera mechanism. It has a spiral axis that starts turning when the front camera button is pressed, making the camera module move upwards. The camera module is also equipped with a spring, probably for stabilizing and smoothening out the movement of the module.
Currently, there’s no information available about the phone’s specifications, but we are expecting that the device will pack high-end specifications. It seems that the phone’s launch is not far away but there’s no official announcement from the company yet.
