Oppo shows first plug-in mobile camera lenses: OIS and up to 15x zoom
Oppo is a Chinese company we’ve been hearing more and more about, but this time it really shoots for the sky in smartphone photography. Oppo teased plug-in camera lenses that you can switch and attach to its smartphones. The first batch of plug-in lenses uses 16-megapixel Sony CMOS sensors with support for optical image stabilization (OIS). There are two lenses planned initially - one smaller with up to 10x zoom and a larger one supporting zoom of up to 15x.

Oppo is also saying its new flagship smartphone, the Oppo N1 will have support for NFC and expandable storage via microSD cards. The whole Oppo teaser for the plug-in lenses ends with a hashtag #Oppo N1. The Oppo N1 release date is expected to be September 23rd, so we could as well see those lenses appear then as well.

The Oppo N1 will not only try to bring a great camera, it will also have the first in a smartphone touch panel on its back.

I think Sony already broke the ground with interchangeable lens.. oppo is just following on the lines.. but I agree that worth while innovation is coming from companies like Samsung.

Apple has the most money. Why don't you attack them instead? You are just a Samsung hater. Go and sleep it off

Big brothers in smartphones needs to learn from these small firms like Oppo, etc. to show that what is innovation, what are patents, what are prices with specs, what are designs, etc..etc..
Hope these small companies would emerge from grounds.

"The first in a smartphone Touch Panel on it's back". I wonder a Korean Smartphone Pantech Vega A860 has it too which is released since February.

the Motorola Backflip had this back in January 2010... (though it was an entry level Android device)

so basically this is the same idea that sony has...

all these clip on lenses just scream that the camera phone isn't what it is hyped up to be

I guess i'll have to wait

hope I am proven wrong

Great inception by Sony! Oppo following Sony. This has a smaller lens than Sony lens which is small to carry around great

I love my Find 5, I'm sure Oppo will make a great job with the N1. Awesome company.
