“With the 10X hybrid zoom technology, users can click an image from a distance without losing the clarity and details, and more interestingly, as per rumours, the feature works like ‘telescope’, which will be embedded in the upcoming OPPO smartphone.”
OPPO‘s 10x camera module for its smartphone was first introduced in January this year. While introducing this, the brand had promised that it will publicly showcase the technology at the upcoming 2019 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Ahead of the event, Brian Shen, the Vice-President of OPPO has released a video teaser of this 10X hybrid zoom technology on Weibo.
Mr Shen has posted a video that shows a picture of Sagrada Familia, a large unfinished Roman Catholic church in Barcelona. The image was taken with the 10x hybrid zoom technology and inspite of zooming, the image comes with clarity and ample details. Rumour suggests that the technology works like a ‘telescope’.
The video named ‘OPPO 10x Zoom Live Demo Official’ consists of different pictures taken at different levels of zoom. The preview starts with the picture taken at 1x zoom and goes up to 10x. OPPO’s 10x hybrid zoom comes with a wide-angle camera module consisting of a telephoto lens and secondary lens. Interestingly, OPPO had used similar technology to achieve 5x zoom capacity back in 2017 but somehow failed.
Reports suggest that OPPO’s new smartphone Find Z, a successor of Find X will get the variable aperture camera like the R17 Pro along with the 10x optical hybrid zoom. The smartphone is said to be launching at the upcoming MWC later in this month. The device will be based on the Snapdragon 855 SoC and might feature a 3D ToF (Time of Flight) sensor, which helps in 3D facial recognition.
