After a few days, it was the turn of GSMArena To come and define the characteristics of this new camera. According to the media outlet, it is clear that Oppo would have succeeded in integrating into a smartphone with a thickness of 8.26 mm Force 50MP Sony IMX766 (f/2.4) sensorSimilar to what would be expected on the brand’s next flagship, the Oppo Reno 7 Pro.
Obviously, the integration of this sensor has several advantages: the device will not only allow the use of a coil 2x optical zoomBut in addition to this, Oppo announced that the latter will still be dust and water resistant. However, not surprisingly, this also leads to several drawbacks, such as the inability to use the smartphone’s camera in fallback mode, and the relatively long time interval (0.6 seconds, Oppo promises) between launching the Photos app and shooting. However, in the event of a fall, the accelerometer in the phone will allow the device to roll back automatically, thus avoiding mishaps.

However, Oppo has already proven itself to us when it comes to innovation. Remember that a few years ago, the Reno group already exhibited Shark fin pop up cameras or drawer.
