One plus just released the one plus 7 with some pretty impressive specs. Still, most importantly, it has a hidden internal mechanical front-facing camera today. We’re going to delve deep inside the one plus 7 find that camera and see how the robotic contraption functions from. The inside and we’ll see what a transparent one plus seven would look like this article sponsored by audible let’s get started.
Not going to lie, I kind of like this nebula blue color back glass. It’s got that frosty matte finish on top, which is probably clouding the internal components when we remove the coloring from the glass. Still, we’ll have to see the back glass comes off like most modern smartphones. A lot of heat softens the adhesive. Then my didn’t pry tools can slip in and sliced through the black sticky stuff holding everything down one plus doesn’t have a specific IP rating for the one plus seven love to delve into that a bit more during the full tear down right now.
I’m just super gentle with the glass because glass is glass, and glass can break. I’m also super soft with my fingers around that razor blade. After all, fingers are fingers, and fingers can take apart cellphones. This is a bit harder than it looks, so I should probably suggest not attempting this on your own. I’ll slide off the back panel, the final top line of adhesives stretching loose. We get our first look at the battery. It’s you know still not read, but the pull tab is I’ve been asking one plus to bring back the epic red cell ever since the last one appeared on the one plus 2, and this is the best looking phone.
I’ve ever been inside the biggest disappointment of this phone because the battery is not red; we get our first glimpse at the nonred array. I guess one plus didn’t get the memo that internal beauty is just as outstanding as external beauty. This also exposes the not red battery kind of disappointing it’s not red finally, lifting opened the one plus 60 reveals no red battery.
I’ve been doing this for a long time, but I believe that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. We’ll have a red battery again soon this time around the cell is black. With the red pull tab, I still think it looks pretty aesthetic, so I’ll leave it alone for this one plus seven definite addition. The motorized camera is up here at the top hidden underneath the black plastics, so we’ll have to and bury that component still, unfortunately.
It looks like in my excitement to take apart the 7, I forgot about the wire cable attached. Your sensors and LED flash and my kind of decapitated the lego style connector nobody tells one plus I use a bit of heat in my razor to pop off the camera lens housing this is its separate unit. I think it is a bit better design than LG’s idea of using the entire back panel as a camera lens on the G. 8 big pieces of glass have more of a chance of breaking than smaller pieces of glass.
The one plus seven pros has 10 Phillips head screws holding down the top plastics then the black plastic panel can come off it looks like the NFC coils positioned right above the motorized front camera this camera looks very similar to the one. We saw inside the vehicle in excess it also had a motorized pop-up camera let’s see how it operates I can turn the phone on at this point even in its undressed state.
It’ll still function I’ll make sure not to touch the exposed circuits the camera looks like it’s operating on a stepper motor system spinning its threaded. Shaft to raise and lower the camera in and out of the phone. The camera itself as a flexible ribbon that moves up and down alongside the camera.
When the selfie-taking is activated eventually, if the one plus seven pro camera is continually moving, a warning will pop up saying to protect the front camera we need not activate it so frequently probably. Because the electric motors generate heat and if the constant raising and lowering loads overheat the engine.
It’ll burn itself out sooner where yeah raising and lowering the camera too much one plus said that in their testing, this camera is capable of raising and lowering 300000 times, which is rather impressive manually pressing down on top of the camera.
When it’s in the open position doesn’t gauge a safety mechanism that pulls the camera and automatically mechanical moving parts inside of a cell phone or pretty much my favorite hardware feature of all time one of my favorite software features. However, that one plus has added to the top pull-down menu is in the mode which allows you to put your phone in a notification free locked down way for 20 minutes disconnected from social media notifications and the internet. You can’t access anything for those 20 minutes. Only phone calls in the camera apple work win in motors enable it to restrict yourself from accessing the distractions on your smartphone physically. This goes hand in hand with the recent audiobook.
I’ve been listening to audible, and thanks to audible for sponsoring this video, it is called. The shallows what the internet is doing to our brains by Nicholas Carr. He talks about neuroscience and the plasticity of our minds the way our brains are adapting to receive and. He says that the little hits that social media and news headlines blips give us are changing our ability to concentrate on larger projects and inhibit our ability to develop those longer-term connections in our brain.

Even if you cancel your membership, I’ve personally been limiting my own social media intake, and it’s good to see one plus providing a built-in option for their users with sent out I think every phone should do. This let’s get back to making a clear one plus seven the color on glass smartphones doesn’t die into the glass-like on a stained glass window; it’s coded on the underside of the glass and shines through the glass to give the phone color sometimes it’s a powder coat sometimes. It’s a weird paint the more often than not, and it’s just a laminate layer that’s it here to the glass.
And that’s the case with this nebula blue one plus seven pros I can use my he got once again to soften the adhesive layer and then peeled up in one large chunk it’s a tedious process and sees if he’s a player is pretty strong. I don’t want to flex the glass too much, or it might shatter into 1000000 pieces, but it is rather satisfying to see the blue coloring come up in one massive Pete’s.
Then the for the logo and text are still etched in the glass itself, so honestly, it really wouldn’t be hard for one plus to make it the explicit version of the phone themselves. Just saying it’s already ready, the glass itself is clouded, so from a distance, it kind of blurs out objects, but closer up, things are bright. Only with the little Matt finish it’s not transparent but should still look pretty cool finished since the NFC coil on the black plastics will be blocking our view going to unwrap it from the panel and set off to the side the end of C. won’t work anymore of course.
But I’m willing to make some sacrifices for the more refreshing hardware and then with a couple of carefully planned snips from my scissors we can keep. The rest of the plastics have some integrated antennas and shielding for the motherboard but still provide us with a window to the insides of the phone I’ll screw everything else back into place, so it’s as close to stock as possible and then. I can clean off the rear glass panel’s underside to get rid of anything prince and minor it.
He sieves residue the laminate coloring did come off pretty clean the rest of the installs pretty simple let some thin, strong double-sided tape all around the four sides a link. This tape in the description and put some on the back of the camera lens, making sure it’s surrounding the entirety of the edge so that dust whenever start to seep in not too shabby, and that’s what the one plus 7 looks like totally. Naked no coloring hardware exposed with a see-through a glass panel and a tiny window in the corner for the most refreshing part. The motorized front-facing camera is visible if one plus has gone through all the effort of adding cool hardware.
I think they should at least want to show it off with a bright addition right what do you think about it? Should I change the battery to read, or do you like the still the black should.
I add the red battery we delve deeper into the ten layers thermal heat pipe one plus has been talking about let me know down the comments coming out me on Instagram and Twitter only post a few times. A week you know, keeping the healthy balance with social media in real life makes sure to grab your free audiobook with the audible link in the description and thanks a ton for watching. I’ll see you around.
