Camera/Flash Protector - kuro - 01-16-2020

After reading the new blog post, I really liked the idea of having the pine logo on the camera/flash protector.

However, I also noticed that it is a single piece of glass that covers both the camera and the flash. This is weird because almost every phone on the market uses distinct pieces to cover the flash and cameras.

I suspect they do this because the light from the flash can reflect and refract directly into the camera which may screw up the pictures. As this is just my speculation it would be nice if someone with a developer phone could test it (I will test it with my braveheart when it arrives if no one can do it sooner).

If this is an actual issue, the solution could be as simple as "breaking" the glass in half (for example the nokia 5 smartphone does this).
