Elephone’s Mi MIX-inspired phone will feature an original front camera setup


Elephone concept

We have already seen Elephone’s concept phone here at GizChina, but we were always left wondering there the front-facing camera was actually placed. Well, it looks like today we have an answer!

Check out the image below:

Elephone S8 ?

Elephone’s concept phone (then becoming real, hopefully) will be featuring a front camera that will automatically pop up from the back. Thus somewhat solving the issue on the Mi MIX where you could be holding the phone in a way that would cover the front-facing camera.

Elephone say they’ve been working on this concept phone for quite some time and this is the best solution they could come with. The phone will sports a stunning tri-bezel-less display with a 18:9 aspect ratio (like the LG G6 and similar to the 18.5:9 on the Samsung S8 / S8 Plus), all of that encased in a beautifully crafted metal body.

And that’s pretty much everything we know about this phone. What do you guys think about it? Do you like the camera automatically popping up from the back concept? Let us know in the comments below!

    Is this one camera solution? If not, couldn’t Elephone just make phone with one camera collapsible?

      Elephone’s concepts design’s tend to look very awesome…out of space…
      and that’s where the beauty ends!

      ..When it comes to the real phones they produce and sell….
      It’s down to earth and nothing as beautiful as the concept.
      Plain simple, budget, buggy mainstream device….

      Elephone, they promise the sky is the limit….so they sell you a bag of air

    This is best for foldable displays where you have no room for the back cam either. For this kind of phone, a flip cam like the one Huawei had at some point is less elegant but easier and cheaper.
    As for the phone itself, it’s a bit too blunt , the corners need to be rounded a bit.

    Why does these companies put their brand names on the front…it would be completely bezel less…arent they satisfied with the brand name on the back ??

    If the front camera auto pops up then i will just play that all day long. Must be so cool. 😛

    I don’t think Elephone’s Mi MIX design is very good-looking, on the contrary, it`s let me uncomfortable.
