OPPO will hold its annual INNO DAY event during China Week. The company will showcase state-of-the-art smartphone hardware, electronics and design products, and other accomplishments/milestones the company is proud of. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t get any teases as the company has teased a self-developed pop-up camera system that could end up debuting on OPPO’s next flagship.
OPPO’s global Twitter account has shared a teaser video of an internal pop-up camera system. This video gives us a preview of this upcoming camera technology. The video also shows an unspecified OPPO smartphone with a retractable camera structure that physically allows the lens to swing in and out of the camera.
You can check out the teaser below.
Most pop-ups are annoying…
But not our self-developed pop-up camera! 😉

The video also implies that OPPO is adapting the retractable camera without ruling out water resistance. In addition to this, the phone also appears to have a drop detection mechanism which should protect the camera module from accidental drops while in use.
Finally, the video also reveals the camera in question. It turns out that OPPO uses a 1/1.58-inch sensor, 50mm equivalent focal length, as well as an f/2.4 aperture. The company didn’t share any other technical details of its pop-up camera. The camera system could allow the company to offer true optical zoom from the main camera without using a secondary telephoto lens.
For those interested, we expect details to start rolling out during OPPO’s INNO DAY 2021 event, which will take place on December 14, 2021.
