OPPO to launch phone with 10x zoom camera

Tue 26 Feb 2019, 13:56:09
Chinese smartphone maker OPPO has said it will launch a phone with 10x lossless zoom technology in the second quarter of this year. The phone will have a triple-lens camera structure including a 48MP main camera, 120 degree ultra-wide lens and a telephoto lens.

“With all the three lenses we can cover broad focal lengths of 16 mm-160 mm which make up our 10x lossless zoom,” says Chuck Wang, product manager, OPPO. “How did we fit it in a smartphone? We developed a periscopic module that is structured in a horizontal organisation. This reduces the thickness of the lens, resulting in a camera module only 6.76 mm thick,” he says.

The phone will have optical image stabilisation (OIS) features on both the main camera and telephoto lens so that images become less blurry. “Our 10x Lossless Zoom is mass-production-ready and will appear in a product soon,” Wang adds.

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and paired with the chipmaker’s AX50 5G modem, the OPPO 5G phone is likely to be launched this year, said Henry Tang, director of standards and head of OPPO Standards Research Centre. OPPO said the phone would be ready for trial in India in the second quarter of this year. OPPO first showcased a 5G prototype of its flagship Find X smartphone in China in December 2018. The OPPO Find X was launched last year.

In November 2018, OPPO completed a group video call on a R15 Pro-based 5G smartphone which lasted for more than 17 minutes on a 5G network with a bandwidth of 100 MHz. OPPO currently operates in more than 40 countries and regions, with six research institutes and four R&D centres worldwide, including one in Hyderabad.
