OPPO has unveiled the world’s first periscope-style dual-camera technology for smartphones. The technology offers 5x lossless zoom capability on a smartphone. It also provides image stabilization capability without making the device fat and bulky.

Oppo took a year to develop the periscope-styled dual-camera technology. Currently, OPPO has applied more than 50 patents for this technology.

Mr. Sky Li, VP, OPPO, MD of International Mobile Business & President of OPPO India, said, “The ‘5x Dual Camera Zoom’ has opened up yet another realm of possibility in terms of smartphone photography, and is a reflection of our dedication to delivering on what our customers want and need – to take beautiful and clear pictures”.

The “5x Dual Camera Zoom” technology was inspired by the idea of a periscope on a submarine. The telephoto lens uses periscope-style structure, means it is done by shifting the lens by 90 degrees, that provides space to the lens for a deep zoom. The light enters the lens by 90-degrees when the user zooms in on a subject or object.

OPPO’s new dual-camera setup helps to keep a smartphone thin. The 3x optical zoom, matched with a proprietary image fusion technology for digital zoom, give users the first-ever lossless 5x dual camera zoom. With a periscope-style construction, the 5x dual camera module is now only 5.7mm thick.

When you zoom on a camera, the slightest vibrations can have a dramatic effect on the clarity of the image. Different from other manufacturers who use optical image stabilization on the wide-angle lens, OPPO took a new approach and applied OIS directly to the telephoto lens. This technology ensures that images are clear and stable even at full 5x zoom.
