World’s First Colour Changing Smartphone – Oppo Reno 5 Pro+

The Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ Artist Limited Edition launched in China has a World’s First color-changing back panel.

Oppo partnered with the visual artist “Joshua Vides” to design the comic-style back panel of this Artist Limited Edition Oppo Reno 5 Pro+.

It is a surreal 2D pattern that marks the debut of Oppo’s electrochromic technology. It enables the phone body to freely change colors by just tapping on the body.

The color of this phone switches between Blue and Silver, you just need to double-tap on the back panel.


There’s a thin layer of metal oxide present in the back glass panel. It changes color based on the valence state of the metal ions inside.

There are basically two layers of electrolyte are present and a conducting material between them.

So when you double-tap on the back panel then it passes current and particles shifted aside and you will see color and when current passes through another side then particles shifted on another side and shows another color.
