Full screen evolution in 2018 – Struggle to manage Front Camera

Full screen evolution in 2018 - Struggle to manage Front Camera 1

In 2018, manufacturers no longer meet the full screen as a concept. Manufacturers with strong R&D capabilities have launched their own comprehensive screen solutions. Even when they compete for the launch time, PPT releases such a way to prove the leading edge of technical strength. In contrast, vivo and OPPO, which have long been considered to be incapable of innovation, are the first to release a mechanical camera-based lifting camera solution, and are also an automatic lifting structure that experiences a more technological sense.

Evolution of full screen smartphone

Single camera phone

In fact, the structure of this hidden front camera has long been available in some mobile phones, not to mention the Nokia N93 series with hinged flip screen. Five years ago, OPPO introduced the N1 series of smartphones with hinge rotation, rear camera configuration. The 13-megapixel camera can flip the self-timer. Although the technology at that time was limited, the screen ratio was far worse than the current mobile phone. However, compared with other mobile phones with a front camera with a total of 5 million pixels, the structure of the flip camera achieved the shooting experience. Progress on the board.

Three years ago, Huawei introduced the Honor 7i of the reversible camera. The 13-megapixel rear camera along with the dual-color temperature flash unit can be manually flipped to become the front camera for self-timer function. Side fingerprint recognition makes the front face of this phone The value is excellent. Although the performance of the Snapdragon 616 processor at that time was poor, it quickly quit the market, but its creative design stayed in people’s minds.

Vivo NEX

At the beginning of 2018, there was a news that the vivo will launch a true full-screen mobile phone. In June, the design of the 8 megapixel camera hidden on the top of the mobile phone was finally released, and it was a mechanical telescopic structure. When the user needed a selfie camera, it automatically Pop-up this front lens, and for a higher screen ratio, vivoNEX uses the screen vibration sound technology, also equipped with the screen fingerprint on the flagship version, several major innovations make the phone achieve a true full screen, plus equipped At that time, the top hardware of the Android platform was considered a benchmark product.


After Vivo Nex, OPPO released OPPO Find X used a two-track submersible lifting structure to hide 3D structured light, rear dual camera and front 25 megapixel camera. When used, it will pop up automatically. It is equipped with a curved screen to make the whole phone round. The mechanical structure of the automatic hiding makes the appearance of the mobile phone very strong. It is almost better than NEX in all configurations. Although it is released for a while, it is hard. The strength almost overshadowed the first full-screen vivo NEX.

Mi MIX 3

At the end of October, Xiaomi released the third-generation flagship mobile phone MIX 3 in the Forbidden City. It adopted a slide-type full-screen solution. Thanks to the early release of vivo NEX and OPPO Find X, Xiaomi, who was the first to propose a comprehensive screen concept, could not produce anything on the product. The innovation in the sense, so the proposed slide-type full screen only from the durability, although the configuration is excellent, is the top flagship of the MI product line, but this year’s comprehensive screen innovation marketing has been exhausted by the blue-green factory, the heat It’s hard to catch up.

Honor Magic 2

At the end of August, Honor announced the magical slide-type full-screen solution, which was earlier than Xiaomi, but it was released only after October 2, October 31. Let us see the fierce competition in the mobile phone industry. The manufacturers are not satisfied with the products. In the case of the first release of the PPT version, to win the media word of mouth to increase the concern, the first generation of Honor Magic said that many innovative media word of mouth burst, but the actual sales are bleak, Honor Magic 2 slide full screen solution and mi MIX 3 exactly the same, no unique Highlights, but the addition of Kirin 980, fast charge makes this phone configuration more balanced.

Lenovo Z5 Pro

In November, Lenovo Z5 pro released, the price of the slide full screen was lowered to near ₹20000 price, and the main frame was narrower. There is no gimmick on the configuration. Consumers are more concerned about its price, and new technologies often appear. It is amazing, but the new technology also represents higher R&D costs and more expensive prices. This is the case with vivo NEX and OPPO Find X. Although Lenovo Z5 Pro is not the first release, there is no unique technology, but the price is right. The sliding cover makes a better contribution to the full screen.

With the COP and COF packaging technology gradually applied to the full-screen mobile phone, plus the screen sound, bone conduction, hidden camera design, custom narrow border screen, and even the under-screen camera technology developed in the screen will make the full-screen mobile phone more The more perfect, the 2018 full-screen evolution, each has come up with a technical breakthrough product, the appearance of the value can be said to have completely hanged the iPhone series, I believe that in 2019 will further narrow the gap with the iPhone series as a whole.
