OPPO’s next smartphone will feature a 5X lossless zoom. The Chinese company unveiled a 5x dual camera zoom technology in the Mobile World Congress. The innovative dual-camera zoom uses a unique periscope-style structure to cleverly address the challenging issue of focus and zoom for slim mobile phones, providing users with a better photo shooting experience.The periscope-style dual camera technology allows you to capture clear and stable image even at a 5x zoom. It uses a unique periscope-style structure to divert light through a prism and into a telephoto lens nested inside the smartphone, set at a 90° angle to a rear-facing wide-angle lens. By shifting the light’s path, OPPO is able to achieve a lossless 5x zoom. even within the confines of a thin smartphone.As the zoom factor increases, slight vibrations can have dramatic effects on an image. Both the prism and the telephoto lens group in OPPO’s periscope-style camera module intelligently sense vibrations and make corresponding compensations in real time. The all-new optical image stabilization (OIS) solution can improve the performance of previous generations by 40%. What’s more, the new prism mechanism dynamically adjusts its angle in astonishingly precise increments of only 0.0025°, ensuring that images will remain clear and stable even at a full 5x zoom.Zooming in cameras is already very common these days, but zooming for mobile phone shooting is not available. This is mainly because a zoom lens with high magnification will affect the thickness of the mobile phone. This time, OPPO uses a periscope-style dual camera module that is only 5.7mm thick, as thick as 3 coins. Slim mobile phones with high magnification zoom lens will become a reality.
