Vivo is working on the world’s first smartphone with a removable front camera. The concept device received the Red Dot Design Concept Award.
In the smartphone with the name IFEA, the developers in their own way solve the problem of the screen without cutouts. The design involves a sliding platform in the upper edge of the body, which is found in modern smartphones. But the fact that it can be removed by holding the magnets, and used separately from the smartphone – really unique function.

Interestingly, IFEA also uses the main camera unit of three sensors, but the concept assumes that real smartphones can cost a single removable module.
The module has its own battery and can be used, for example, as an action camera with a third party mount. Of course, with a wireless connection to a smartphone.
Vivo’s plans for IFEA are not announced. However, the developed solutions in the concept can be used in future smartphones of the company.
