Oppo unveils its new retractable camera in detail

Presented on the occasion of Inno Day, Oppo’s new retractable camera is revealed in video, in a long official teaser shared by the Chinese brand.

Again this year, Oppo’s Inno Day has lived up to its reputation. The Chinese brand presented many projects, from its Oppo Air Glass augmented reality eyeglass to its new NPU MariSilicon X chips, which could well equip the next generation of Find X. The event was also an opportunity to present in video his first flip smartphone, as well as a prototype of retractable rear camera.

Nice technical feat

A few days later, it’s the turn of GSMArena to come and specify the characteristics of this new camera. According to the media outlet, Oppo would have obviously succeeded in integrating into an 8.26 mm thick smartphone a imposing 50 Mpx Sony IMX766 (f / 2.4) sensor, similar to the one expected on the brand’s next flagship, the Oppo Reno 7 Pro.

Obviously, the integration of such a sensor has several advantages: not only will the device allow the use of a 2x optical zoom, but in addition Oppo announced that the latter will remain resistant to dust and water. Unsurprisingly, however, this will also lead to several drawbacks, such as the inability to use the smartphone’s camera in retracted mode, and the relatively long time lapse (0.6 seconds, Oppo promises) between the launch of the photo application and the shooting. In the event of a fall however, the accelerometer present in the phone will allow the device to retract automatically, thus avoiding unfortunate accidents.

For the moment, it is not yet clear which smartphones will benefit from this ambitious technology promised by Oppo. We can expect that it will only be reserved for the brand’s top-end models. However, Oppo has already proven its efficiency to us when it comes to innovation. Remember that a few years ago, the Reno range already offered pop-up cameras in the shape of a shark’s fin or a drawer.
