OPPO recently announced its latest camera technology as they show off their 10x lossless zoom. The technology was actually first unveiled last January.
OPPO’s 10x lossless zoom tech was announced at its Global Innovation event at the MWC in Barcelona. To achieve this, OPPO used a triple-lens camera structure, combining a 48MP main camera with a 120-degree wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens. Together with OPPO’s imaging software, all these work together to achieve a focal length of 16mm to 160mm, or 10x lossless zoom.
OPPO used a periscope design and D-cut lenses to keep the module compact. The entire triple camera setup has a width of under 6.76mm, giving users more camera per milimeter. They even managed to fit in an OIS with 0.001445 image stabilization precision.
Here are some comparison photos posted on OPPO’s Twitter account. That’s 10x lossless zoom versus ultra-wide angle.

OPPO plans to release a smartphone carrying the 10x lossless zoom technology in Q2 of this year.
The new camera tech came on a reference device that packs a full HD+ AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4,065mAh battery.
