Vivo’s New Concept Phone Features a ‘Gimbal-Stabilizing’ Camera

The Chinese smartphone company Vivo has unveiled its new APEX 2020 5G concept smartphone. It’s a device that comes with a number of interesting photography-related features, including what the company calls a “gimbal-stabilizing camera.”

The back of the phone features a relatively thin dual-camera setup. The first is a 16-megapixel periscopic camera that features an optical zoom range of 5x to 7.5x.

On the bottom of the module is a 48-megapixel “Gimbal Camera.” Vivo says it managed to embed a tiny “gimbal-like structure” into the main wide-angle camera, providing twice the stabilization as traditional optical image stabilization systems.

“It achieves optical stabilization both in the front-back and left-right inclined directions, which largely keeps the integrity of the image,” Vivo says. “The design of this main camera also achieves stronger capacity for night photography.”

Engadget writes that the design of the stabilization system was inspired by the chameleon’s eyeball.
