A company spokesperson at a recent event held in Beijing said that Oppo’s 10x lossless zoom technology meets commercial standards and is ready for mass production
China-based smartphone maker Oppo has announced that it will be showcasing its 10x lossless zoom camera technology in Barcelona during the upcoming Mobile World Congress event. Interestingly, Vivo has also recently announced that it will showcase its concept 5G smartphone at the same event. It is to be noted here that Vivo, Oppo and OnePlus operate under the umbrella of China based BBK company.
Oppo’s official statement read, “To employ the new technology, OPPO has developed a triple-camera solution consisting of “Ultra Wide Angle + Ultra Clear Master + Telephoto”. The ultra-wide-angle camera has an equivalent focal range of 15.9mm, bringing a unique capability to the wide-angle viewfinder.”
A company spokesperson at a recent event held in Beijing had said that Oppo’s 10x lossless zoom technology meets commercial standards and is ready for mass production. Oppo has used three cameras in order to enable the technology.
Oppo 10x lossless zoom camera technology
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’s official statement read, “The primary camera guarantees photo quality, and the telephoto camera, with 159mm equivalent focal range, combined with the original “peep-up structure” to support high-magnification zoom, can ensure a high-quality long-distance shot.”
Use of periscope structure in the technology
In addition to the triple-camera structure, 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. As a result more space is saved, and the mobile phone can use a larger optical component under the premise of ensuring that the mobile phone body is thin and light, so that the mobile phone has a telephoto shooting capability.
Oppo has also announced a new wide zone optical fingerprint recognition technology, which can recognise an area up to 15 times of the current mainstream optical solution. Oppo claims that users can unlock or pay by using fingerprint anywhere in the entire area.
