Oppo has been in the news for several reasons, like getting separated from the online brand Realme, the launch of R17 and R17 Pro smartphones and recently, for the work done in the 5G space. The Chinese company is again in conversations after a tipster claimed that Oppo would release a 10x Hybrid Optical Zoom technology which may be showcased as early as at CES in January or at MWC in February.
“The OPPO official said it will release a 10x hybrid optical zoom technology, which we will see at CES or MWC as early as possible,” Ice Universe tweeted. The rumoured Huawei P30 is also said to be one of the smartphones which will have a telephoto lens with 10X optical zoom. Huawei is expected to have a 38MP Sony IMX607 image sensor which the Japanese company is reportedly developing.
According to SlashLeaks, Oppo F19 will have this technology. “The Oppo F19 integrates 10x lossless zoom technology with triple cameras on the back of phone. The attachments are the design and patents, leaked from the supply chain, of the 10x lossless zoom photography technology registered by Oppo,” a leak on the platform said. The post on the platform, however, is being disabled because SlashLeaks is apparently not allowed to leak patents.
Recently, Oppo launched the R17 Pro in India. It features a 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340x1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC coupled with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. There is a dual-camera system on the back and a single shooter in the front. The primary 12MP rear camera comes with variable aperture (f/1.5 and f/2.4) and the secondary 20MP camera helps in capturing portrait shots. On the front is a 25MP AI camera. The Oppo R17 Pro houses a 3,700mAh battery with SuperVOOC Flash Charge technology.
