Among the deluge of iPhone X, Chinese phone maker Bluboo stood out in Barcelona at MWC 2018 with a unique looking phone.
The S2 represents the company’s attempt to bring a completely full-screen phone to the market. Bluboo claims the device will feature a whopping 91.16% screen-to-body ratio. And considering the iPhone X has an 82.9% screen-to-body ratio, this is quite impressive.
But how does Bluboo manage to achieve this feat? Well, the S2 is using a flip-up rear camera as the front camera as well, thus opening up more real estate for the display.
It’s a 21-megapixel sensor that when holstered will sit on the back of the phone. But as soon as users will want to take a selfie, it will pop up and rotate to become a selfie-snapper. Bluboo says the camera can rotate up to 100,000 times without a problem.
Bluboo S2 is the next flagship coming from the company
But you should know the S2 is not the only smartphone to boast a screen-body-ratio above 90%. Other smartphones like the Vivo NEX and OPPO Find X also feature an unusual camera mechanisms which enable them to have a screen-to-body ratio of around 91.24% and 93.8% respectively. Nevertheless, what Bluboo managed to achieve is still quite admirable!
Bluboo has also shared a few other details regarding the upcoming phone. According to the company, the S2 will be available in Black or White and will feature a black made out of a ceramic-like material.
What’s more, the handset should sport a 6-inch display with on-screen buttons and will have a metal frame. Other specifications include a Type-C USB port and fast charging.
Since we’ve been hearing of the Bluboo S2 for quite some time now, you might be wondering when it will be released? Well, we don’t have a definitive date just yet, but the company says it will become available in the near future.
