There is no denying the fact that over the past few years, OnePlus has become much more ambitious. At the beginning, the company competed solely in the affordable flagship space, with the OnePlus One being one of the cheapest flagships in 2014. With each new device generation, OnePlus has been confident and audacious enough to increase the pricing of its products. In 2019, such ambitions reached their logical conclusion when the company released the OnePlus 7 Pro with a significant price increase. The phone was said to be its first true high-end flagship, capable of competing with top-tier flagships from established device makers. The OnePlus 7 Pro and its incremental successor, the OnePlus 7T Pro, no longer restricted themselves to competing in the affordable flagship segment. Instead, they took the fight to Samsung, Huawei, Apple, and Google. OnePlus continues to enjoy great mind share in the premium smartphone market. To ensure its competitive market position, the company has shown that it’s not afraid of trying out new things. Case in point: the OnePlus Concept One.

The OnePlus Concept One is OnePlus’ first concept phone. Concept phones are not a new concept—in the past few years, Xiaomi and Vivo have publicly revealed concept phones in the form of the Mi Mix Alpha and the Vivo APEX 2018 and 2019 respectively—but OnePlus’ take on a concept phone is truly a new concept. The OnePlus Concept One shares the same internal specifications with the OnePlus 7T Pro, but it has a futuristic and unique design. It has a leather back and PVD coated aluminium, but the real highlight are its invisible cameras, which OnePlus achieved by using electrochromic technology. The device was announced at CES, but because of its nature as a concept one, only media persons have got the chance to use it so far. OnePlus has now announced that the Concept One will be shown off in person in 10 cities around the world.

The company states that from February 5, it will visit North America, Europe, and India to show off the OnePlus Concept One, as it believes that the device is one worth experiencing in-person. Many users have supposedly asked for more details about the device, and shown interest in trying it and seeing OnePlus’ ECMF technology. Visitors will also have the chance to meet the company’s staff and share their thoughts on how the technology should be implemented in future smartphone designs.
