Vivo has presented a new concept smartphone with a detachable camera. The small camera can be separated and then controlled with the main smartphone or voice commands, opening up new possibilities for photography. The IFEA concept phone won a Red Dot Design award but no details on a commercial launch were available.
The camera is a small module that pops up from the top of the phone. A magnetic connection means it can be attached to other surfaces to take selfies. A similar pop-up camera design has been used in other smartphones by Vivo, but this is the first where the camera can be separated and used as a standalone device.
