OPPO has further miniaturized the module to the old 5x zoom camera and it found room for larger sensors to boot. It shaved off 55% of the thickness, getting it down to just 6.76mm. That’s almost as thin as the camera on the R17 Pro.
This is definitely the closest we've yet come to conquering the seemingly insurmountable challenge of injecting real zoom into the tight confines of a smartphone. … the new prototype is better in every way. More zoom, more lenses, more sophistication, reduced bulk and weight, and, importantly, a planned released window.
OPPO is the first major player to hold a pre-MWC event, revealing its 10x zoom technology in Barcelona. The brand confirmed that 10x zoom capabilities will appear in its next product, scheduled for a Q2 2019 reveal.
When using the zoom up to 10x, images were definitely less grainy and more detailed than on the S10+ or Pixel 3 XL I had on hand. I was able to view 10x images on the OPPO gallery and even after pinching to zoom, edges were crisp and detail was preserved at high zooms.
Perhaps the best part of OPPO's new camera tech is the fact that it is ready for mass production and will feature in a yet-to-be-announced device that will release in Q2 of this year.
From top to bottom, it'll start with a 48-megapixel high-resolution main camera, followed by a 120-degree ultra-wide camera and a stealthy periscopic telephoto camera. Together, these cameras cover a range of 16mm to 160mm, hence the 10x zoom rating.
Another bit of news out of the event is the promise of 10x lossless zoom (16mm-160mm) for the company’s next flagship. If its works as advertised that’s a nice little distinguisher from the competition.
OPPO has been teasing a major camera innovation in its smartphone portfolio for some time and its 2019 MWC launch event gave us the most in-depth look at the technology in question, destined for its next big smartphone release.
It’s been revealed that the telephoto lens uses the same prism and periscope setup of its predecessor for lossless zoom. This would allow users to zoom in further when taking their photos without worrying about sacrificing image quality.
The arrival of its first 5G smartphone could revolutionise consumers' lives through faster video download/upload and open paths for new gaming experiences among other things.
The technology essentially uses a combination of a 48MP primary camera sensor, 120 degree ultra-wide lens and telephoto lens. When combined, these cameras can shoot photos the equivalent of 16mm all the way up to 160mm.
Camera technology is always a major focus for smartphone makers, but perhaps more than any other manufacturer, OPPO has consistently made camera tech the focus of its devices and subsequent marketing.
Zoom 10x, a first in the world of smartphone.
Impressively, like the primary camera, the periscopic camera has OIS (optical image stabilization) built in, which is a vital inclusion for ultra-zoomed-in photography.
With all 3 lenses, the phone can cover broad focal lengths of 16mm-160mm which make up 10x Lossless Zoom. It looks just like making two parallel cuts on a circular lens, this design further reduces thickness of the telephoto lens module while keeping the optimal performance.
From that event, we now know all the lovely details of the 10x "Lossless zoom" that a new triple-camera setup will be bringing to a phone being released this spring by the company. It looks pretty freaking awesome.
OPPO may not always be making the smartphone headlines, but it has always been putting out interesting and desirable components that eventually make their way to its smartphones.
OPPO today showcased its commitment to the new 5G technology as we can expect. Up to this OPPO showcase its interesting technology 10x zoom. This new tech will allow everyone to get amazing long distant pics with extreme quality.
OPPO 10x lossless zoom technology is an innovation that improved dramatically the user experience and offer to everyone the chance of taking pictures with a professional style with 0 compromise on the quality.
OPPO raised the veil on a photographic configuration with triple photo module particularly interesting since it is OPPO indeed the first time a manufacturer promises us a lossless 10x zoom on a mobile phone.
Striking was the image stabilization: it was also pretty good at 10x zoom. This will have to do with the fact that the prism is also stabilized, and therefore what can turn around.
