The RGBW smartphone sensor, Oppo reveals 85-200mm continuous zoom lens

Oppo conducted an event today, which will reveal its newest progress in smartphone photography, which it will implement in its handsets later this year.

The presentation was led by Oppo’s Imaging Director, Simon Liu, to introduce a new sensor, variable zoom lens, new lens and sensor stability, and enhanced pixel control algorithm under display cameras.

New sensor for RGBW

The newly designed RGBW sensor from Oppo adds a red, green and blue array of white sub-pixels to the generated photos and uses a 4-in-1 binning system.

The other color filters eliminate 60% more light and increase noise reduction compared with conventional ones by 35%.

Oppo says that it uses DTI ‘ground break’ to isolate the light pixels to reduce pixel interaction and increase picture quality. The DTI is the most often used pixel breakage.

On the other hand, the 4-in-1 binning improves color performance and prevents moiré designs. Starting in Q4 of this year, the new sensor comes on Oppo phones, but we still have to know in which size and resolution.

Continual optical zoom OPPO 85-200mm

Probably the most fascinating Oppo announcement is the camera module with continuous visual zoom. It is a module that offers continuous optical zoom of between 85 mm and 200mm with rotating lens elements.

The module incorporates a tunnel magnetoresistance sensor (TMR), which permits accurate movement and steadiness of the lenses indoors. The glass and plastic parts are combined with two ultra-thin aspheric glass lenses. Then you have a shaft guide engine which moves.

This approach prevents incoherence across cameras in the multi-lens system, such as color and white balance.

Oppo does not disclose when the continuous optical zoom in the production system might be expected.

There is then the possible size problem – a module such as this would be rather large for a phone, and this would probably mean that a sensor would be relatively small and that the aperture would be somewhat dim.

Five-axis ISO OPPO

The latest OIS in Oppo works by combining lens stabilization and sensor stabilization. The system uses a horizontal (X) and vertical (Y) changing lens mechanism when movement is relatively low.

The sensor shift starts to fight horizontal (X) and vertical (Y) shifting, as well as rolled up when the movement is more extreme.

OPPO self-developed next-gen algorithms under cameras

Finally, Liu discussed a new pixel control algorithm under the display cameras for Oppo’s future generation.
