Oppo set to reveal 10x optical zoom for mobile devices this week

Oppo to unveil phone camera with 10x optical zoom on January 16

Oppo is working on a new smartphone that could give DSLRs a run for their money.

OPPO introduced their 5x lossless zoom technology to us a couple of years ago but it has yet to make it into any smartphone of theirs.

As found on My Drivers and translated by The Verge, Oppo sent out of series of media invitations captioned essentially "ten times the view, see you soon", above the date of the scheduled event - January 16.

A leaked invitation for an upcoming event highlights the number 10, which appears to be an indicator for 10x optical zoom. The exact specifics of the tech are a mystery at this point, but it is expected to be based on same principle the company's 5x optical zoom technology worked.

China's exports shrink most in two years, raising risks for global economy
China exports to the USA declined 3.5 per cent in December while its imports from the US were down 35.8 per cent for the month. However, in a sign that the White House's punitive measures are having an impact, China's exports to the USA sank last month.

We expect the camera hardware to include an enhanced version of the Precision Optical Zoom technology we first saw in 2017.

That fancy prism was able to bend the light 90-degrees allowing the lens for the zoom function to be horizontal across the device to overcome the packing constraints of thin smartphone designs. With OIS at the telephoto end, it should be possible to get stable shots even with the image fully zoomed in.

Oppo may not be a household name just yet, but if it's camera phone technology is anything to go by then it could well be the manufacturer to watch. There are further suggestions that the two phones might have a punch-hole display.

Well, the device clearly didn't show at CES this year, so this event looks promising for such a launch. What are your thoughts?
