Today OPPO unveils its first exclusive glimpse of the groundbreaking "5 Dual Camera Zoom" Technology and also the world's first periscope-style dual-camera technology for smartphone.

OPPO claims that this technology offers 5x lossless zoom capability on a smartphone. It also feature image stabilization capability without scarifying the device thin and sleek profile.

Sky Li, OPPO Vice President and Managing Director of International Mobile Business 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 dual camera utilizes wide-angle and telephoto lenses, and the housing for the telephoto lens uses an innovative periscope-style structure. By shifting the angle of the telephoto lens by 90 degrees, the lens will have the space it needs for a deep zoom. A periscope-style prism then directs the path of the light entering the camera by 90 degrees, and sends the images through the telephoto lens when the user zooms in on a subject or object.

Worrying with the stabilization after the 5x zoom? OPPO took a new approach applies the OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) directly to the telephoto lens, both of the prism and telephoto lens will have the intelligence to sense vibrations and compensate in real time. This would give improvement of the stabilization by 40%.

OPPO didn't mentioned which of their new smartphone will be featuring it. We might likely to see it very soon it their new smartphone.
