The 10x zoom implements an angular prism that bends the light in 90 degrees and feeds the image onto a sideways mounted sensor, that we saw back at MWC 2017. At the other end of the zoom range is the ultra wide-angle module.
The “innovation event”, as Oppo calls it, will take place on February 23 at 2PM CET. You’ll be among the first to read about it.
