5x Smartphone photography technology AT MWC!

Chinese handset manufacturer Oppo has announced that it will reveal a “5x smartphone photography technology” at the MWC 2017 trade show. The company has confirmed it will unveil the tech on February 27 in Barcelona, though from its invite it’s unclear if it will be hosting a separate event to do so. It is also promoting the unveiling on its social properties.

With the tag lines “Go 5x further” and “So close you can feel it”, it appears the company’s “5x smartphone photography” is referring to some sort of optical zoom feature. Oppo’s new smartphone photography technology can be expected to debut on the company’s future handsets to be released this year.

Speaking about the technology, Sky Li, VP, OPPO, MD of International Mobile Business and President of Oppo India, said, “Oppo’s relentless pursuit of perfection without compromise has given birth to a remarkable technological breakthrough that will change how the world perceives smartphone photography. This remarkable achievement is the result of an extensive, year-long R&D process, combined with Oppo’s unparalleled expertise in smartphone imaging technology.” The Chinese company last year at the MWC 2017 trade show unveiled its battery technology.

“We chose MWC to unveil the ‘5x’ technology with the belief that we can inspire the industry to aim higher, and continue to create pioneering products that give amazing experiences to consumers,” he added.

So lets wait for the new tech to be unvield at the MWC and get the first impressions!!
