DPReview.com - Latest News - Thu, 04/19/2018 - 2:37pm

OPPO, one of China's largest mobile phone manufacturers, has signed a strategic licensing agreement with Corephotonics, a developer of dual-camera technologies based in Israel. Under the agreement, the two companies will work together on the development on Oppo's smartphone camera roadmap, covering optical zoom, depth mapping for bokeh simulation and related features, as well as other areas involving smartphone camera optics optics, mechanics, computational imaging and deep learning among others.

Mobile photography is a key focus of OPPO, and we have always been eager to forge strong partnerships with leading suppliers like Corephotonics,” said Dr. King, OPPO’s Hardware Director. “Corephotonics’ dual cameras with wide-angled and telephoto lenses, along with the periscope-style construction, optical image stabilization and image fusion technology, edge mobile photography even closer to what digital cameras are capable of doing.

Oppo and Corephotonics have worked together in the past, including on a 5x optical zoom module that was implemented in an Oppo prototype device and displayed at last year's MWC. We're looking forward to seeing the results from this now more formalized relationship.
