Oppo announces world's first dual camera with 5x zoom

Oppo is bringing some new camera technology to showcase at MWC 2017, which the company has developed for mobile devices. This technology offers a 5x Dual Camera Zoom system, which utilizes a unique periscope-style setup.

This dual camera zoom consists of 50 individual parts, stacked in a module with a total height of 5.7mm. The system uses a periscope-style setup to divert light through a prism and into a telephoto lens nested inside the smartphone, set at a 90-degree angle to the 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.

Oppo also has a new optical stabilization (OIS) mechanism to tackle any shaking or vibration that may occur when shooting video. The prism mechanism dynamically adjusts its angle with precision to the thousandth of a degree or 0.0025 degrees to improve accuracy.

Oppo is known for its innovations in smartphone cameras, being the first to introduce a 5MP front camera on the Oppo Ulike 2, the first to introduce a 206-degree rotating camera on the Oppo N1, and the first to bring a 16MP front camera with the Oppo F1 Plus.

We will hopefully get to see this 5x zoom camera utilized in one of the company's upcoming smartphones in the near future.
