WhatsApp, Instagram Video Calls May Damage Pop-Up Selfie Cameras

WhatsApp, Instagram Video Calls May Damage Pop-Up Selfie Cameras

Pop-Up camera phones have become a trend and are found everywhere in recent times. An invention which we never expected to see a year ago is now seen in almost all Android smartphones, which are available for less than INR 20,000. It has impressed a lot of youngsters and also has set an example for bringing in new innovations.

Are you planning to buy a phone with a pop-up selfie camera? If yes, it is better to drop the plan of buying it and there is something you should know. A code that is present in WhatsApp and Instagram’s Video calling UI can trigger the pop-up selfie camera, much before the user receives the call. What this actually means is that whenever you get a video call from these apps the code which is present in the UI of the apps will forcibly activate the selfie camera way before you take out the smartphone from your pocket or bag to receive the call.

As per an investigation which was done by Times of India, phones such as Realme X, the Xiaomi, Oppo, Asus 6Z, and the OnePlus 7 Pro which features a pop-up selfie camera have shown such problems which automatically have triggered the pop-up selfie camera each time a video call was made from Instagram or WhatsApp. Android smartphone manufacturers have ensured that this issue will be solved as early as possible and new phones will not have any such issues further.
