Oppo remains in the news thanks to rumours about a new kind of cam tech it’s stated to be giving its smartphones. The Chinese business is apparently developing a brand-new hybrid optical zoom innovation that will enable smartphones to catch pictures with up to 10x zoom, and it is rumoured that Oppo’s next-generation flagships – the F19 and F19 Pro – could be the first phones to utilize it. This news begins the heels of online reports suggesting that Huawei is dealing with a similar technology in its rumoured P30 Pro smart device, which is expected in early-2019. However, none of the 2 will have the ability to claim be the first to offer 10x optical zoom in a smart device as the feat has already been achieved by Samsung back in 2014 with its Galaxy K Zoom smart device. The phone utilized a retractable lens to offer the optical zoom support.
According to popular tipster Ice Universe, Oppo could display the technology as early as the next month’s CES trade reasonable or the Mobile World Congress, which is set up for late-February, 2019.
“The Oppo authorities said it will launch a 10x hybrid optical zoom technology, which we will see at CES or MWC as early as possible,” Ice Universe wrote in a tweet.
The specifics of this Oppo technology are under wraps right now, but a batch of patent illustrations associated with the Oppo F19 and Oppo F19 Pro released on SlashLeaks appears to indicate that the upcoming innovation will be similar to what the company has used to accomplish 5x lossless zoom in 2017. The patent illustrations have because been removed, and are our only sign about the connection in between Ice Universe’s tweet and the Oppo F19 duo.
“The double camera utilises wide-angle and telephoto lenses, and the real estate for the telephoto lens utilizes an innovative periscope-style structure. By shifting the angle of the telephoto lens by 90 degrees, the lens will have the space it requires for a deep zoom. A periscope-style prism then directs the path of the light going into the camera by 90 degrees, and sends the image through the telephoto lens when the user zooms in on a subject or item,” the business had discussed at the time.
