Together, these three cameras enable a seamless transition from 1x to 10x zoom, further improving the main contactor and periscope with optical image stabilization. Oppo added that this solution drastically reduces the thickness of the entire camera module, although no numbers have yet been disclosed. What we know is that this technology is now ready for mass production, but there is not a word about when we'll see it on a phone. We'll learn more when Oppo demonstrates this technology at MWC next month.
The idea of integrating a periscope into a smartphone is nothing new. Even before Oppo's previous 5x hybrid zoom design, ASUS had a 3x optical zoom periscope in its ZenFone Zoom, though our own Chris Velazco was not a fan of image quality due to the choice of sensor. Hopefully we will not let the implementation of Oppo down.

That This technology may not be exclusive to Oppo, as Xiaomi President Lin Bin has also raised a larger detection area for the detection of fingerprints on display before the Oppo event. In any case, that's good news for consumers.
