Oppo smartphones just shared an invite for an event scheduled at MWC 2017. Mobile World Congress or MWC 2017 is rapidly nearing and with exactly a week left to go, the invites are pouring in. Most smartphone makers have launch events scheduled at mWC 2017 and are planning on launching new devices. While some brands will be launching the latest flagships of 2017 (LG, Nokia), others might just dabble in lesser devices and instead, save the big guns for later in the year (Samsung). Oppo will be present at MWC this year and while it is unclear if the Chinese smartphone brand will be launching a smartphone or just showcasing a new technology. MWC is not only a launchpad for phones but also for showcasing the latest technology in smartphones that year.

Oppo Mobiles has rolled out an invite that is slightly ambiguous. While it is known that Oppo is high on photography when it comes to smartphones and smartphone photography is their strong point, something they have been promoting since they started the company. Oppo phones actually began the selfie craze and then took it much ahead with their advanced front cameras. The smartphone maker is now coming up with a new technology when it comes to smartphone cameras and that is 5x Smartphone Photography Technology. The all new Oppo 5x Smartphone Photography Technology is expected to be unveiled at MWC 2017 and Oppo has already begun sending out invites to the event. The 5x Smartphone Photography Technology will be unveiled on 27th February in Barcelona.

The invite sent out by Oppo mentions only the 5x Smartphone Photography Technology and gives no other details. There is no mention of any smartphone. This has left us wondering as to will Oppo be launching only the new technology or will there be a brand new smartphone to go with it? if there is a new smartphone, it is likely to be the new Oppo flagship of the year. i is also not clear if the new camera technology will actually be launched or only unveiled. the 5x does hint at something to do with zoom but once again – a selfie zoom? A rear end camera optical zoom? Just what has Oppo planned. The simple invite creates more questions than it answers. It is likely that all new Oppo smartphones will feature this new 5x Smartphone Photography Technology. Motorola Anniversary Special Flipkart Sale – Moto M, Moto Z, Moto Z Play, Motorola Moto G (Turbo Edition) available with discounts

Talking about the technology, Sky Li, VP, Oppo, MD of International Mobile Business and President of Oppo India, said, “Oppo’s relentless pursuit of perfection without compromise has given birth to a remarkable technological breakthrough that will change how the world perceives smartphone photography. This remarkable achievement is the result of an extensive, year-long R&D process, combined with Oppo’s unparalleled expertise in smartphone imaging technology. We chose MWC to unveil the ‘5x’ technology with the belief that we can inspire the industry to aim higher, and continue to create pioneering products that give amazing experiences to consumers.” 2017 MWC promises to bring in a lot of surprises and we can’t wait for the week to pass!
