Vivo Handset With Nikon Camera Tech Gets Pictured, Features Rotating Camera
BBK is a Chinese company, responsible with the thinnest smartphone in the world, measuring just 5.75 mm in thickness. Now they’re making a handset with a Nikon technology camera and what’s more this camera is a rotating one. There’s proof in the images below.
We’ve written about this handset before and now there are fresh images to check out, confirming the rotating camera mechanism yet again. The device features a dual LED flash and the camera module is placed at the top, an atypical setup if you ask me. We’re dealing with a CMOS 1/1.7 inch camera sensor here, taking 20 megapixel shots and offering a F/2.0 aperture.
Nikon will provide a top SLR chip on this device: the Expeed E1-158 1051 200 M. It would be about time for Nikon to get into the smartphone game, seeing how popular cameraphones have become. Of course, this model could only be sold in China for starters, but if it’s a success, it will open up opportunities for both Nikon and BBK.
