Smartphone makers have been coming up with creative solutions to the question of where you hide the camera on a bezel-free phone. Apple (and a lot of other companies) stuck it in a notch in the screen. Vivo created a phone with a pop-up camera. And Oppo, XiaomiHuawei, and Lenovo opted for a slide-down screen that reveals hidden cameras — making room for multi-camera setups, among other things.

Now Elephone is getting in on the action with something a little different. The upcoming Elephone PX features a Vivo Nex-like pop-up camera. But it’s a dual-camera system.

The result is a phone with slim bezels that still lets you snap portrait-style photos or images with adjustable depth effects.

Is a dual-camera pop-up selfie camera better than a sliding screen? I have no idea. But it’s different.

The rest of the phone’s specs look decent for a mid-range device:

  • 6.34 inch FHD LCD display with 89.5 percent screen to body ratio
  • MediaTek Helio P22 processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB storage
  • microSD card slot
  • 3,500 mAh battery
  • Black and green color options
  • Dual rear cameras with LED flash
  • Dual front cameras (no flash)
  • Android 9

According to GizmoChina, the phone will go up for pre-order through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign soon, and you can sign up at the Elephone PX website to get a 40 percent discount when the phone launches.

Unfortunately there’s no word on the cellular network bands supported by the phone — but I wouldn’t really expect it to have wide support for US carrier bands. Most previous devices from Elephone don’t.

  1. I love the “MEGAPIXELS” over the dual lenses. How many? Should we guess? Do they know?
