OPPO introduced world’s first camera module with 5X optical zoom at the MWC 2017, but we didn’t see any phone with the tech. Today the company has scheduled an event on 16th January in China, to introduce 10X optical zoom technology, ahead of this year’s MWC next month.
According to earlier design drafts and leaks, the phone will have a periscope structure to divert light 90-degrees through prism into a telephoto lens. It also revealed triple rear setup for the smartphone.
Last month Sina Technology interviewed the head of the OPPO Imaging Laboratory who revealed several OPPO multi-zoom technology related patents also confirmed that OPPO is indeed exploring multiple or even 10x hybrid zoom technology.
We should know all the details about OPPO’s 10x optical zoom technology on Wednesday.
