Oppo Reno patent circular disc pop-up camera smartphone
The patent documentation talks about the integration of a telecamera, wide-angle camera, and an ultra-wide-angle camera. Then there is also a deeper look at the optical zoom camera, mentioning a 15x Hybrid zoom function. For the time being, there are no smartphones available with such a large Hybrid zoom range.
In April this year, Guangdong Oppo Mobile Telecommunications filed a patent with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office). The patent called 'Terminal device' was published on November 12, 2020, and describes an Oppo smartphone with a pop-up camera. We find 5x Hybrid zoom in the recently launched Reno 4 Pro. Hybrid zoom functionality makes it possible to get closer to any subject without any loss of image quality.
A vertically placed triple camera is visible on the back. This camera system is placed a bit lower on the housing than normal, this has everything to do with the semicircular disk (or the pop-up system), which takes up a lot of space internally in the upper part.
The patented model is again a specially designed pop-up camera, which will certainly add to the overall styling of this smart device. This time, Oppo has used a semicircular turntable, which automatically comes out of the housing if you want to take selfies or make a video call. A front camera and a flash are placed in the round pop-up system. The first Oppo phones with an in-display camera are also expected next year. Nevertheless, this new camera technology will certainly not be directly applied to all models. The Oppo Find X3 may be the first device with a selfie camera under the screen. This time the company is working on a Semi-circular pop-up camera mechanism.
Additionally, the design also features a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is no longer found in modern premium smartphones. In the original story, we were skeptical regarding the presence of a periscope camera. Because the design sketches showed all the rear camera sensors in a circular shape. Further, unlike any other OPPO phone, the camera setup in this design is placed horizontally on the rear panel like on the Galaxy S10 series and Meizu 17 series..
