Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has finally unveiled its long-awaited Concept One smartphone at CES 2020, developed in collaboration with revered British automaker McLaren.

With a design inspired by McLaren’s 720S supercar, the Concept One is wrapped in a premium Papaya Orange leather with a streamlined black glass sliver running down the middle of the rear. The glass itself is electrochromic, and can be altered to either reveal or hide the rear cameras on the smartphone depending on when they’re in use, offering a sleek and unobtrusive aesthetic.

“The glass of the OnePlus Concept One uses organic particles to create changes in transparency so that the glass covering the camera lenses can shift in an instant from opaque black to entirely clear,” says OnePlus CEO Pete Lau. “Presenting a clean, unbroken surface when not in use, the ‘invisible’ design is a manifest example of OnePlus’ ‘burdenless’ design philosophy. This optimal solution is what we call ‘Electronic CMF’ — a new approach in industrial design.”

There’s currently no news about whether the Concept One will ever hit the production line and be released to the public, so those interested should definitely stay tuned for more news to come.

In other tech news, Samsung has debuted a near bezel-free 8K QLED television.
