Some time ago, OPPO has announced that it will present a completely new technology related to mobile photography. It seems that finally we lived. The Chinese producer finally revealed the cards and we already know what to expect.

Just as I suspected from the beginning, the new technology OPPO is connected directly to the delivery of smartphone capabilities, which would allow them to use better digital zoom. So far, this element sadly limp and approximate images do not look like we would like. Chinese brand has announced that the new technology is to allow for a smooth five times closer. The mere fact that that OPPO wants to introduce this type of solution for smartphones is quite surprising and puzzling.

surprising because they implement a digital zoom (even 5x) requires a large amount of space. The exception is the Moto Mod created by Hasselblad. Producers much easier to use for the operation of optical solutions that simply enlarge the image on the screen. OPPO found, however, a way by utilizing the double lens. Instead of placing the lens in the vertical, technology OPPO uses it horizontally, which takes up less space giving smartphones the ability to use five times zoom. The entire unit is only 5.7 millimeters thick, which projects from the housing. But this is not no news looking at recent trends in the mobile market.

The use 5x zoom can give you an advantage on the OPPO mobile market. I wonder what would happen if the Chinese brand sold the patent large manufacturers, who in addition to approximations also put on image quality. Then you would expect really concrete changes in mobile photography. How many people use the zoom every day during filming? Probably not much. However, it is known that in the segment of mobile devices, something is moving forward.
