Oppo also showcased its first 5G compatible smartphone at the Mobile World Congress 2019

Recently, the China based smartphone maker Oppo, at its innovation event, presented the world’s first 10x lossless zoom technology. The 10x lossless zoom is a new technology created with industry-leading camera specifications like a triple-lens camera structure consisting of a telephoto lens, ultra-wide-angle lens, and a main camera.

The quality of camera image is one of the top features that users generally inquire before purchasing a smartphone. A recent survey by Statista head revealed that 86 per cent respondents had voted for camera quality as one of the top features in a smartphone.

Oppo Vice President, Anyi Jiang stated that they are proud to deliver their first innovation event for media and partners. Oppo, in the last week of January 2019, had said that its 10x lossless zoom technology was ready for commercial operations. He added that innovation is their top priority and they have made many developments to bring the future into consumers’ hands. They look forward to continuing with this commitment and bringing to market more advances particularly in 5G and photography.

All three cameras encompassing the technology operate in tandem to maximize their respective advantages, optimise imaging quality at various zoom ranges to achieve 10x zoom in a relay manner. To maintain image quality at all ranges, Oppo has introduced dual OIS optical image stabilization on both standard and telephoto cameras.

Oppo claims that its ‘periscope structure’ is also paramount to achieving 10x lossless zoom technology. The periscope-inspired design, as per Oppo, makes full use of the width and thickness of the phone through the lateral arrangement and refraction of the lens set.
