After the launch of OnePlus 7 Pro, the company has put up a 12-hour long video online showing off its pop-camera endurance. Right after the launch of OnePlus 7 series last night, OnePlus on YouTube posted a stress test video of the OnePlus 7 Pro’s front-facing pop-up camera.
The 12-hour long video is essentially an endurance test for the pop-up mechanism on OnePlus 7 Pro. It shows how the camera retracts 300,000 times before giving up. There is one more durability test video on OnePlus’ YouTube channel, which it also showed off during the launch presentation, in which the OnePlus 7 Pro’s popup camera lifts and hold’s up cement block of 22.3kgs.
OnePlus has additionally claimed that 7 Pro’s pop-up camera detects a mid-selfie fall and retracts itself before reaching the ground. Which means, if you drop the phone while taking a selfie with pop-up camera, the accelerometer will detect the fall, and the mechanism hides the camera back in the body in a less than a second.
BGR India spoke to OnePlus’ co-Founder Carl Pei before the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro launch about the pop-selfie camera, full screen display and more. To which, Pei talked about new trend of the bezels becoming smaller and smaller. He said, “For the OnePlus 7 Pro, we just wanted everything to be the state of the art. If you look at the trajectory of the how smartphones have changed since the original iPhone, you notice a clear trend of the bezels becoming smaller and smaller. A couple years ago it faded to just a notch. We wanted to take the final step and make it fully immersive.”
