Oppo enjoys pushing the boundaries of photographic technology downsizing. So, the company will do it again next week with Oppo’s new smartphone having a retractable camera. As the Chinese smartphone manufacturer would have you think, this is not a pop-up or hide-away camera. Its corporate cousin OnePlus also used to be proud of having them, you know — as the Chinese smartphone maker would have you believe.
Oppo’s retractable camera Features:
The camera is seen moving in and out of its container in both dry and wet situations in a video clip released to Twitter. The camera sensor is 1/1.56″ in size, with an aperture of f/2.4 and a full-frame equivalent focal length of 50mm, as shown in close-up images. The housing for the single-camera is around the same size as the two-camera housing above. We also saw an image of the phone falling from a height, emphasizing its resilience to rough-and-tumble circumstances because the camera mechanism stays visible when retracted.
It appears like Oppo is using some of its earlier research and development to create physical zoom mechanisms for its smartphone cameras; if this is the case, “directed shaft motor” and “prismatic OIS” will be buzzwords of the day. However, we don’t know if the camera is designed to be utilized in both extended and retracted modes, and if so, which mode the 50mm designation refers to.
So, to discover more, we have to check in to the company’s Inno World event on December 14th.
