Oppo will launch the new camera technology at the launch of the Reno 7 series later this week. Cat-eye lens technology was co-developed with Sony and uses an RGBW sensor. Reno 7 will appear on November 25th.
Oppo is gearing up to launch the Reno 7 series later this week, as the new range introduces several design changes over its predecessor. However, the most important addition can be hidden under the camera lenses.
The company will introduce the “world’s first ultra-sensitive cat eye lens” with the Reno 7 series. According to a series of posts on Weibo, Oppo has been co-developing the technology with Sony over the course of three years. The camera also uses a Sony IMX709 sensor with an RGBW matrix. Oppo believes that this combo improves light sensitivity and reduces noise.
If you’re wondering where “cat’s eye” fits into the equation, Oppo’s marketing suggests the phone will be good enough for taking photos at night and in low light. There is no indication that the lens itself will use a slit-like design similar to an actual cat’s pupil. In addition, some teasers hint at the use of the camera as a selfie, but the company has not yet confirmed its placement.
Oppo also teases the clever use of the rear camera bump, which features a bright accent ring. This is also supposed to act as a notification light, something we haven’t seen on more expensive smartphones in some time.
What about the rest of the Oppo Reno 7 series? Well, the Pro model might have a SoC Dimensity 1200 Max, a 4,500mAh battery, and a 6.5-inch AMOLED with a 90Hz refresh rate, according to the latest rumors. We will also find at least four sensors on the back, according to Oppo’s marketing images.
There isn’t much time to wait for confirmation of these specs or pricing details. The Reno 7 series will debut in China on November 25.
