Oppo released the new retractable camera designed for upcoming phones

Oppo has teased one of the innovations that it will showcase at INNO WORLD between December 14 and 15. The company claims that its retractable camera is built in-house and is waterproof. The technology should allow Oppo to produce smartphones with slimmer camera housings without compromising on image quality.

The actual sensor is a 1/1.56-inch imager with a 50mm equivalent lens with f/2.4 aperture which fits the Sony IMX766 profile. As to why you’d need a moving rear camera, we believe this is going to be used as a zoom cam. The large pixels coming from the sensor could be used to capture more details or offer some form of advanced bokeh effect.

The short teaser video shows us the whole contraption is splash resistant and can retract when dropped just like pop up selfie cam. With just a week left to the big event, we’ll have to patiently wait for more details to emerge.


Oppo will reveal more details about its ‘self-developed retractable camera’ on December 14 during INNO WORLD. You can find more information about the event on Oppo’s dedicated INNO WORLD website.
