Over the years, Oppo has challenged the norms of what it means to be different by releasing innovative smartphone designs and gimmicky names.
There is an abundance of what Oppo brings to the table, and this time, the China-based smartphone manufacturer has once again showcased its creativeness by putting a 60x zoom camera to their latest flagship phone, the Oppo Find X3 Pro.
Oppo Find X3 Pro Features a 60x Zoom Microscopic Lens
The Oppo Find X3 Pro has been fitted with what the company is calling a "Microlens" camera that can magnify objects up to 60x, putting it in actual microscope territory. For what it's worth, 40x, 100x and 400x are common magnifications of the lenses.
With the help of its quad-camera setup that features two 50MP primary shooters with wide and ultra-wide features, a 13MP telephoto lens, and a 3MP microlens, the Oppo Find X3 Pro can capture every little thing from a single strand of hair, the lines of an LCD, to plants and every mundane things found around the house.
As TheNextWeb reported, the images taken by the Oppo Find X3 Pro microlens are not the highest of quality as the camera only features 3MP. Also, it is hard to keep objects in focus due to the shallow depth-of-field and the shakiness of such high magnification. Still, these are images users cannot get from other phones in the market, and Oppo also adds a ring light around the lens to help keep subjects illuminated.
The publication, however, noted that Oppo has done right in selling a gimmick with its 60x zoom microlens. It offers something people have not seen a flagship phone can do before and cannot imitate. The news site also claimed that the microlens technology might be a big thing in the next five years, and users may have microscopes in their pockets at that time.
