Vivo is making a phone with rear glass that changes colour

The mobile company Vivo is about to bring a smartphone whose back panel color will change automatically.

As per a post by vivo's official Weibo handle, the magic behind this impressive feat is the same electrochromic technology used by OnePlus.

Vivo, which is part of the BBK Group that also owns OnePlus and Oppo, has not yet broken the Western market but is popular in its native China. A color-changing phone is definitely unique, and I have to say that I quite like the idea of changing how my phone looks without having to buy cases or skins.

The video shared on Weibo, as spotted by Android Authority, shows the Vivo phone from the back that shifts its colour from one another. Yes, you heard it right. Vivo achieves this with the help of electrochromic glass that is usually seen on skylights, sunroofs in cars, etc. In this type of tintable glass, the colour of it can be changed and controlled by the user.

With this kind of concept, various features can be introduced later on that sync with the feature.

The electrochromic technique on show is the same tech that OnePlus used for its Concept One concept phone at CES in January, when it was used to visually hide the camera lenses when they were not in use. According to the phenomenon, when low voltage is applied the ions change their consistency then changing the light and how it bends when it passes through the electrochromic film- then it will create a different colour.

Interestingly, that clip doesn't have tape covering the camera module, and it looks strikingly similar to the company's recent X50 flagship phone that went on sale in July.
