Move over, Sony Xperia C3 and HTC Desire EYE, as a new claimant for the throne in the selfie department has just emerged from the vast lands of China - say "Cheese!" and pose for a selfie before the Doov Nike V1, a smartphone that employ a rather intriguing and unorthodox camera setup.
We've already seen the motorized swiveling snapper of the Oppo N3, but the Doov Nike V1 takes a slightly different approach - it employs a hinge, which allows the user to flip it and shoot in whichever direction they want, either the front or the rear. It swivels at up to 190 degrees.
As far as the camera itself is concerned, we have a 13MP, F/2.0 second-gen Sony sensor and a dual-tone Phillips LED flash. The snapper is also endowed with an optical image stabilization. The camera sensor itself is protected by sapphire glass with high refractive index. Additionally, the selfie-taking prowess of the device is complemented by a slew of enhancing and "beautifying" software modes.
The device is priced at $325, but don't expect it in a store near you - probably it won't make it out of China.
