The Chinese tech giant Oppo will be attending the MWC 2017 as it has revealed earlier. Today, the company got us curious about its MWC event by releasing an interesting teaser. The teaser points to a phone with 5x zoom capability as you can see in the image below. But, the image does not give us a hint whether it will be optical zoom or digital zoom.
The company also put some ads up in the Baidu search which clearly says, (if my Chinese translation is correct) “Oppo’s innovative dual lens camera can achieve 5 times lossless zoom”. That’s not very innovative since the iPhone 7 Plus already have that technology but it is interesting to see 5x lossless zoom on a phone. Since Oppo is using a dual camera setup to achieve the 5x zoom, the phone has to be as sleek as any other smartphone.
I am really curious to see how Oppo has managed to put 5x zoom camera on a regular smartphone. We don’t have to wait much longer as the MWC 2017 is upon us. Having a 5x optical zoom is a great feature to have but I will have to see the overall camera quality before deciding to get this one.
