BLUBOO has just released a teaser for the upcoming BLUBOO S2 handset. As you can see in the provided image above, the BLUBOO S2 will be announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. This phone will be announced on February 26, according to BLUBOO’s invitation, and the device will sport a rather interesting camera. This phone will utilize its main snapper as a selfie camera as well, as we’re looking at a rotatable camera here, read on.
The BLUBOO S2 will not be the first phone to sport a camera like this, we have seen such tech before, but not many companies utilized it. OPPO is actually a good example, that company released the very first smartphone with a rotatable camera back in September of 2013. The OPPO N1 had not only a rotatable camera, but a dual LED flash as well, which was placed next to its 13-megapixel snapper. BLUBOO says that deploying such a camera allows companies to trim down bezels on the front even further, and the company says that the BLUBOO S2 will be a ‘full screen’ smartphone, which essentially means it will have really thin bezels. The aforementioned teaser actually shows off a huge camera, it actually looks a bit too big for the body of the phone, so we’ll just have to wait for a real life image in order to check out its design.
That being said, the OPPO N1 is not the only smartphone to sport such a camera, Honor actually threw its very own offering to the ring as well, the Honor 7i, which was announced back in August of 2015. That phone sported a slightly different mechanism than the OPPO N1, with its flip-up camera. DOOGEE is actually planning to release something like that as well, the DOOGEE Mix 3, which will sport a camera mechanism similar to what Honor 7i had to offer. BLUBOO says that its employees have been working on the BLUBOO S2 for a while now, and according to the info that we’ve received, the device will probably be fueled by one of Qualcomm’s processors, while it may also ship with an in-display fingerprint scanner, and camera tech ‘verified’ by Carl Zeiss. This part is actually a bit confusing, as we’re not sure if Carl Zeiss’ tech will actually be incorporated here, or did the company only help BLUBOO out with whatever tech they’re planning to deploy. We’ll find all that out on February 26, so stay tuned.
