OPPO to Launch an Awesome New Smartphone Featuring 5X Optical Zoom & Bezel-less Design
Chinese electronics manufacturer, OPPO Electronics has been rather quiet in recent months. They haven’t shared much about the launch of their latest smartphone. But, it seems their team has been working behind closed doors to bring something new to the market.
So, the news is out! We can expect to see a new flagship Android smartphone this November from OPPO. Yet, this has not yet confirmed by OPPO themselves, yet all the reports point in this direction.
What will we call it?
As with most new handsets, the new OPPO smartphone has a codename. Known at as the OPPO Mix, the company has yet to confirm the official name.
At this stage, it is up to speculation whether we will see the ‘OPPO Mix’ on the shelves come November. Or if it will be a different name on the box. What we know is that the device will be the first in the manufacturer’s new range of flagship devices. It will not fall into the OPPO Find line.
Salient Features of OPPO Mix
While other smartphones have already made the move to the bezel-less display design. This is likely to be OPPO’s debut. As per the resources, it is a full-screen phone design. Other salient features of this full-featured handset are listed below.
Operating System and Processor
When it comes to the features of the new OPPO Mix, what we can say is that it will be running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Also, it will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset, along with 6GB’s of RAM. Snapdragon 835 is boasting a small size with greater processing power. Also, it takes less power consumption.
In fact, this chipset uses approximately 25% less power than previous chipsets. With an added bonus- this does not result in extra heat from the device. These are few of the benefits of the Snapdragon 835 chipset. It includes improvements across the board to support audio, video, camera and security.
Information from industry insiders states that this device will make use of an AMOLED display from Samsung. AMOLED displays offer a brighter display as compared to their predecessors, the OLED and LED displays.
Besides that, the main attraction is the bezel-less design of the display that has critics talking. The border-less screen design has become a very popular trend amongst smartphone manufacturers.
It lately does not look to be phasing out anytime soon. This design is great for making the most of the screen space. It allows manufacturers to make the device’s screen as large as possible.
You can also expect that OPPO Mix is well equipped with an updated version of the OPPO’s. It has a fast battery charging technology, VOOC. The VOOC system can charge your device from 0 to 75% in the timeframe of 30 minutes.
Additionally, this technology helps to lower the temperature of the adapter. It acts as an interface between the device and charger. It improves both speed and safety while charging. There has yet to be any further information available about the finer details of the battery size and functioning.
All these features aside, the most anticipated feature of the OPPO Mix has incredible 5x dual optical zoom. It also includes lossless functionality on the rear camera. This new zoom feature should improve camera performance up to around 40%.
Boasting more than 50 fine-tuned components, the minute camera module is only 5.7mm thick. However, it delivers great results.
This is thanks to the structure of the camera- a unique periscope-style. It diverts the light through a prism, traveling into the telephoto lens. You can find it within the handset itself.
Unfortunately, OPPO is remaining rather tight-lipped on the topic for this new flagship device. It leaves us with very little information and a lot of speculation. You can expect more information on this awesome, new device soon. It is yet to release in the coming weeks leading up to the official launch. As per the sources, November this year is set to be its lunching month.
