It remains to be seen which of the two technologies Xiaomi adopts, it said.

According to the report, the Vivo S10 has a photochromic back which changes from orange to blue when under direct sunlight. The colour-changing process happens as a result of ultraviolet rays from the sun.

On the other hand, the OPPO Reno6 Pro+ Detective Conan Edition, which has an electrochromic back, can switch from silver to red and back.

The colour change occurs when voltage is passed through the glass, the report said.
