OPPO unveiled 10x lossless zoom, ahead of its debut at MWC 2019
January 20th, 2019, Dubai, United Arab Emirates – OPPO recently revealed its forthcoming 10x lossless zoom technology at its 2019 Future Technology Communication Conference. An OPPO spokesperson indicated that the 10x lossless zoom technology meets commercial standards and is ready for mass production. OPPO will showcase the breakthrough technology in Barcelona at MWC 2019.
Triple camera seamlessly enables 10x zoom
To employ the new technology, OPPO has developed a triple-camera solution consisting of “Ultra Wide Angle + Ultra Clear Master + Telephoto”. The ultra-wide-angle camera has an equivalent focal range of 15.9mm, bringing a unique capability to the wide-angle viewfinder. The primary camera guarantees photo quality, and the telephoto camera, with 159mm equivalent focal range, combined with the original "peep-up structure" to support high-magnification zoom, can ensure a high-quality long-distance shot.
OPPO’s innovative "triple-camera-relay" 10x lossless zoom technology
All three cameras operate in tandem to maximize their respective advantages, optimize imaging quality at various zoom ranges to achieve 10x zoom in a relay manner. To maintain image quality at all ranges, OPPO has introduced dual OIS optical image stabilization on both standard and telephoto cameras.
Original technology to create a clearer telephoto quality
In addition to the triple-camera structure, OPPO's pioneering "periscope structure " is also paramount to achieving 10x lossless zoom. The periscope-inspired design makes full use of the width and thickness of the phone through the lateral arrangement and refraction of the lens set. The space is saved, and the mobile phone can use a larger optical component under the premise of ensuring that the mobile phone body is thin and light, so that the mobile phone has a telephoto shooting capability.
In addition, OPPO uses the industry benchmark-level drop tests to ensure the reliability of the camera module. Among them, the prism part experienced two rounds of drop tests, with each round consisting10,000 times on the front and back sides, and 2,000 times on the remaining four sides, adding to a total of 28,000 drop tests.
OPPO launches next-generation biometrics
As the "last surprise" of this communication conference, OPPO also released a new wide zone optical fingerprint recognition technology, which effectively recognizes an area up to 15 times of the current mainstream optical solution. Users can unlock or pay by using fingerprint anywhere in the entire area. The on-screen optical fingerprint sensor provides users with a flexible, free and interactive experience that is also easy, natural and just right.

OPPO wide zone optical fingerprint recognition contains innovative functions including two-finger simultaneous entry and authentication, which exponentially improve payment security, achieving a security level 50,000 times of that of a single fingerprint. In addition, the next-generation solution also incorporates the "Optical Encryption" feature. Compared to the traditional two-step operations, where users have to activate the encryption application before they are able to unlock, all applications in the "Optical Encryption Area" can be activated, authenticated and unlocked with one click. Products equipped with optical domain screen fingerprint technology will be launched in 2019, as suggested by an OPPO spokesperson.
