Worried about the OnePlus 7 Pro’s pop-up camera? Watch it lift a literal block of cement

That’s 50 pounds, yo.

When OnePlus announced and released its OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone, it revealed a solid smartphone that threw caution to the wind and moved the selfie camera inside of the phone, with a pop-up design that allowed for front-facing pictures.

It is a pretty interesting design choice and the lack of notch is nice for screen space, but one question that burned with many was just how stable and strong was this camera? Would it break if you touched it or can it take some punches?

Well, OnePlus released a video showcasing just what it could withstand

Yup, that’s right, that little camera module was able to lift a 50lb cement block. Nutty.

Now, it should be noted that this test being showcased is under very specific conditions and just because they did it doesn’t mean you should try it too. It also doesn’t mean you should go around trying to snap it off. Just know that it’s not flimsy.

The OnePlus 7 Pro has been impressing reviewers today, with Tom’s Guide even naming it one of their best smartphones of 2019.

What do you think? Surprised by the results or are you not buying it (the video or the phone)? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
