Chinese handset-maker OPPO on Monday unveiled a new camera technology called the 5x Smartphone Photography Technology dubbed 5x Dual Camera Zoom system that will debut on the company’s phones later this year at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Last year, the company had launched its Super VOOC Flash Charge battery technology at MWC 2016.
Oppo’s new 5x Dual Camera Zoom system comes with a periscope-style setup, and is claimed to kill the need of camera bump at the back with its sleek 5.7mm thickness.
The company also said that the 5x Dual Camera Zoom system packs more than 50 parts which have been stacked in a 5.7mm module. Oppo’s 5x Dual Camera Zoom system diverts light through a prism into a stabilised telephoto lens set at a 90-degree angle. The company claims that the result is lossless 5x zoom, and it utilises Oppo’s “proprietary image fusion technology for digital zoom.”
“We are definitely putting a stake in the ground in terms of technological breakthroughs for mobile photography. The dual cameras with wide-angled and telephoto lens, together with the periscope-style construction, our image fusion technology and the Optical Image Stabilization, edges mobile photography even closer to what digital cameras are capable of doing. Our 5x Dual-Camera Zoom will again set yet another technological standard that others will emulate,” said Sky Li, VP, Oppo, MD of International Mobile Business & President of Oppo India.
Oppo at its keynote also confirmed that the 5x Dual Camera Zoom technology was developed in collaboration with an Israeli startup named Corephotonics.
