Vivo phone with rotating Nikon camera pictured in new renders
We might be getting another nugget from the makers of the sub-6mm Vivo X3 Android handset, the Vivo phone with rotating Nikon-branded camera unit. From the new renders of it, this project looks in pretty advanced stages, at least in terms of outer appearance, as the last renders we saw had the camera in a different position. Vivo teased a 1/1.7-inch, 20.2MP CMOS sensor, an aperture of f/2.0, and a Nikon EXPEED chip, which sound breathtaking for a phone, to say the least.

We thus have every hope it will be a direct competitor to the Oppo N1, which also features a rotating camera thingy, forcing the big makers to advance their phone camera tech even further. Future Google Nexus phones were rumored to come with Nikon cameras, but there's been no development since, and the Nexus 5 (Nexus 4 2013) is definitely not that phone.

The lens on the Vivo phone could apparently feature some sort of internal optical zoom, as far as we can judge from mentioning the word "periscope" in the translation, like on some compact cameras you've seen here and there. There's apparently a dual LED flash combo, but what are the rest of the specs for this cubistic cameraphone, remains to be confirmed by an official announcement.

And Nikon first had a rotating camera module on the Coolpix 900 way back in 1998. The concept has come full circle

This is nokia's type of phone where you can rotate your camera. I sure love this idea specially selfie mode lol.
