OPPO, a leader in mobile photography, hogged the limelight on Tuesday in Mobile World Congress (MWC) with the first exclusive glimpse of the cutting edge' 5x Dual-Camera Zoom' technology, the world's first periscope-style dual-camera technology for smartphones.
The technology offers 5x lossless zoom capability on a smartphone, a breakthrough innovation that sets the bar higher when compared to the 2x zoom functions available in the market.
Users will also enjoy an image stabilization capability like never before while keeping the device thin and sleek.
OPPO worked for almost a year to develop the revolutionary periscope-styled dual-camera technology.
Currently, more than 50 patents have been filed for this technology.
Mr. Sky Li, VP, OPPO, MD of International Mobile Business & President of OPPO India, said, "The '5x Dual-Camera Zoom' has opened up yet another realm of possibility in terms of smartphone photography, and is a reflection of our dedication to delivering on what our customers want and need - to take beautiful and clear pictures."
The innovation behind the '5x Dual-Camera Zoom'. The '5x Dual-Camera Zoom' technology was inspired by the dea of a periscope on a submarine.
The dual-camera utilizes wide-angle and telephoto lenses, and the housing for the telephoto lens uses an innovative periscope-style structure.
By shifting the angle of the telephoto lens by 90 degrees, the lens will have the space it needs for a deep zoom. A periscope-style prism then directs the path of the light entering the camera by 90 degrees, and sends the image through the telephoto lens when the user zooms in on a subject or object.
