Oppo teases its new ‘5x’ smartphone photography tech ahead of MWC

Patience, young padawan, there’s just a week to go

The camera’s often the first thing we check in a phone. That’s why we can’t wait to see what Oppo’s been up to.

MWC Barcelona’s coming up soon and we know you’re all waiting to see what cool new stuff comes out this year. Well, Oppo have something they’ll be showing off to the world and while they’re being rather tight-lipped about it, it’s got something to do with smartphone cameras.

They’re calling it ‘5x’, and say it’s been in the works for a year. Well, given that Oppo have been quite gung-ho about kitting out their devices with some crazy cameras (there’s the customised 1/2.8-inch Sony IMX398 sensor in the R9s, and of course, the F1 Plus with its 16MP front camera), we can’t wait to see what this is.

So stay tuned as MWC Barcelona’s just around the corner. Meanwhile, you can check out Oppo’s existing range at their website.
