This $325 smartphone will surely fascinate you with its flippable OIS-enabled 13MP camera


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 rest of the specs of the Doov Nike V1 are not as intriguing as the flipping camera, mind you. The SoC of the phone is a quad-core MediaTek MT6732, humming at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, a 2,480mAh battery, and a 5" 720p display at the front. The Doov Nike V1 runs a custom Android 4.4.x KitKat right out of the box, with the manufacturer's own Super UI atop. 

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.
