OPPO is at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona but unlike other smartphone brands that announced new devices, the Chinese company used this event to showcase their newest technology: a periscope-style dual camera technology that enables a user to do up to 5x zoom without the need to extend the lens.

The technology, according to OPPO, is achieved by using a unique periscope-style structure to divert light through a prism and into a telephoto lens that is nested in the smartphone. With this, OPPO touts that it enabled them to achieve a 5x lossless zoom at the confines of the smartphone’s thin profile.

In addition, the new dual-camera zoom also features a ‘groundbreaking OIS technology’ that enables the user to ensure steady shots even when at 5x zoom. Its new prism mechanism allows a 0.00025-degree precision, ensuring that the image will be clear and steady even when zoomed in.

OPPO is tight-lipped about the application of the technology in its own devices — we’ll see in the future as to where it would be featured. The company’s next flagship, perhaps? We’ve yet to find out.
