But that could change soon, the company has scheduled an event on January 16 in China, ahead of MWC 2019, to introduce its follow-up, a camera technology with 10x lossless zoom.

Actual 10x zoom on a phone soon?

According to leaked sketches, the handset that will feature this tech comes with a full-screen design with a triple-camera setup at the back. There's another sketch showing a dual-camera configuration only.

Earlier design drafts and leaks also showed that the phone will have a periscope structure to divert light 90-degrees through prism into a telephoto lens. It also revealed triple rear setup for the smartphone.

Both of those camera phone designs are expected to produce up to 10x lossless zoom. There are rumors that it will be a purely optical zoom, but we won't be surprised if it will follow Huawei's path by using the hybrid zoom (digital + optical) solution aided by AI.

If OPPO can pull it off, then we could have a new zoom king.

We will update you guys on Wednesday!
