OPPO has recently announced that it uses three lenses for achieving 10x zoom. Not far, the company has introduced 10x hybrid optical zoom camera technology at an event in China. Along with this, the Chinese brand had also introduced new optical in-display fingerprint scanning technology.
OPPO 10x Hybrid Optical Zoom Camera
For this camera technology, OPPO uses three-camera solution that includes a Super Wide Angle, Ultra Clear main sensor and a Telephoto lens. The three cameras work together to maximize their respective advantages, achieve better imaging quality in different zoom zones and achieve 10x zoom. OPPO has used OIS for standard and telephoto cameras.
The ultra wide-angle camera has an equivalent focal length of 15.9mm, which provides wide-angle shots and the ultra-clear main camera that ensures clear photos and the telephoto camera offers 159mm equivalent focal length. In addition to triple cameras, OPPO has also used a hidden camera that is also key in achieving 10x hybrid optical zoom.
The periscope structure that was first introduced with 5X optical zoom camera back at the MWC 2017 makes full use of the width and thickness of the phone through the lateral arrangement and refraction of the lens set.
Bigger Optical In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
Along with 10x hybrid optical zoom camera technology, the company has also introduced new optical in-display screen fingerprint technology which has 15 times larger area compared to current in-display sensors. It lets you place two-fingers for unlocking to achieve an exponential increase in security.
OPPO has confirmed that the new in-display fingerprint technology will be used in a flagship smartphone launching in 2019. The company also said that it will demo the new 10x optical zoom technology at the MWC next month, but it did not say when we can see it in a smartphone.
