Oppo announces phone camera with 5x lossless zoom

By Team Feedbaac

The Chinese manufacturer may not need to launch a new phone to turn some heads their way. At MWC 2017, Oppo showed off their new dual-camera featuring 5x lossless zoom. This basically lets users zoom in to unprecedented levels of detail without the need for digital assistance.

The system incorporates a unique periscope-like design that consists of 50 individual parts. The module itself seems to be thin enough at 5.7mm that there will likely be no annoying bulge under your phone. Oppo mixes in a new optical stabilization system as well in order to handle the added shake from a zoomed in camera.

The last time Oppo made a splash in the mobile camera game was with its massive 16-megapixel front camera on the Oppo F1s. This news makes us eagerly anticipate the next Oppo flagship that will likely make use of this kind of tech.
