Now the Chinese smartphone maker is doubling things up with a newer triple-camera system that offers 10x lossless zoom with a periscope system. Apart from the new imaging tech, OPPO has also announced its first 5G handset.

On the evening of February 23, the OPPO's Innovation Event 2019 was held in Barcelona.

The presentation detailed the three cameras in Oppo's new module, as well as the technologies involved with making these macho cameras fit into such a slim package, such as periscopic modules and OIS on two of the array's three cameras.

Back in MWC 2017, Oppo had showcased its 5X Hybrid Zoom technology, although the company did not use a commercial device in showcasing the technology. For steadier shots, both wide and telephoto cameras come with optical image stabilisation.

OPPO have invested, and continue to invest, in 5G technology with a plan to spend more this year on top of the US$1.5 billion spent on 5G R&D since 2015.

Marco Silva: Everton & Watford reach agreement over Portuguese's appointment
Everton manager Marco Silva find himself in a bit of a hole right now, with his side losing their last three consecutive matches. Potential sanctions could have included a huge fine or potentially a points deduction.

Oppo has announced its first 5G smartphone, as it continues to aggressively compete with Samsung and Huawei in the global smartphone market.

Using all this technology Oppo has managed to keep the camera module to only 6.76mm thick, while still packing in an additional 48-megapixel high-resolution main camera, and a 120-degree ultra-wide camera.

Only a concept video has been shown off so far, so we really don't know anything about the specs other than a confirmed Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor.

It is reported that OPPO and the four major carrier partners of Swisscom, Telstra, Optus, and Singtel jointly launched the "OPPO 5G Landing Project". "We look forward to continuing with this commitment and bringing to market more advances particularly in 5G and photography".
