Following the unveiling of its “next-generation” under-display selfie camera earlier this month, Oppo staged a “Future Imaging Technology Launch Event” online today to make some camera-related announcements.
Oppo is notorious for showcasing camera technology in prototype form long before it is released to the public. Periscope telescopic cameras and under-display cameras, for example, were the first to be demonstrated by the business, and both are becoming more popular on high-end devices.
A telephoto lens with continuous optical zoom is the first new announcement. Unlike today’s periscope telephoto lenses, the lens elements move throughout the 85-200mm equivalent zoom range, ensuring clean photos at all focal lengths without the use of digital zoom, cropping, or artificial sharpening.
Vivo offered a product comparable to this for their Apex 2020 concept phone, but the range was much smaller — around 130-195mm equivalent. This Oppo module starts at 85mm, which is a standard focal length for portrait headshots, allowing it to be much more adaptable. Oppo claims that using a single camera over a wider range of lens lengths assures more consistent colour and white balance.
Oppo hasn’t said when this camera will be available on a commercial device.
The following announcement is a five-axis optical image stabilisation technology that employs lens-shift and sensor-shift techniques, as well as movement data from the phone’s gyroscope. Sensor shift is utilised in more dramatic scenarios and includes the ability to roll the sensor as well as along the X and Y axes. Lens shifting is used for more gradual stabilisation, whereas sensor shift is used in more dramatic situations.
Oppo claims that this provides three times greater stabilisation than normal OIS camera modules, which is also what Vivo claims about its gimbal-style systems, which it has been delivering since last year. Unlike the zoom lens, Oppo has confirmed a release date for the OIS technology, which will debut in Oppo phones in the first quarter of 2022.
Oppo’s most recent major announcement is a new image sensor with an RGBW sub-pixel structure that adds extra white subpixels for a 60 percent increase in light sensitivity, according to the firm.
Oppo concedes that previous RGBW sensor attemp
