When Vivo revealed its NEX smartphone with the pop-up camera mechanism, a lot of people are curious on how it would stand the test of time.
Since cameras are an integral part of a typical consumer’s day-to-day smartphone usage, it’s quite obvious how stressful it would be for the hardware of the Vivo NEX.
Launching the camera app triggers the pop-up mechanism to work, revealing the camera hidden within the body of the phone. The same scenario is repeated again when the user closes the app as well.
In order to assure consumers that they don’t have to worry, Vivo shared some information regarding their extensive testing and quality control tests. The Vivo NEX can withstand a load of 45kg on top and it’s camera mechanism can last for up to 50,000 times of launching and closing.
The company put eight (8) smartphones in a circular table and placed a hefty 40kg glass on top of the opened cameras while a 50kg ballet dancer performs on the glass itself. In total, that’s about 90kg of load shared across the eight Vivo NEX devices.
The video is not shared by Vivo on their website or social media accounts, so we don’t know for sure if it’s official or note. But from the looks of it, it looks like it is.
