Huawei Honor 7i will be the first ever smartphone with a rotating camera. It sounds pretty much interesting and hypothetical but its true. The device will flaunt a 13MP of AF rotating camera with f/2.0 aperture, which clearly shows Huawei’s love for selfie and the love is so much in air that they sought to trademark the word “groupfie” last year.
The Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei’s new Honor-series smartphone is now up for pre-orders in China. The Huawei Honor 7i is priced at CNY 1,599 (approximately Rs. 16,500) for the 2GB RAM and 16GB storage variant, and will be available via China Mobile. The same variant will be available at CNY 1,699 (approximately Rs. 17,500) via China Telecom and China Unicom.
Apart from the camera it has a fingerprint sensor too which is present on the side panel, quite different from the conventional position. The company has termed this step as an “industry’s first” and sports the “smallest fingerprint modules.”
Here’s a video:

The camera as we mentioned earlier is rotating one with a sapphire-protected lens of 13MP AF with a 28mm wide-angle lens and dual-tone LED flash. The camera’s flash is attached to the same pivoting module, so that can also be ready at a moment’s notice.
