The news comes a few days after Oppo confirmed that it would be showing off new AR Glass technology at the Inno Day event.


Original article: November 12, 2020 (2:27 AM ET): Oppo hosted its first Inno Day in December last year, and it used the event to demonstrate some cutting edge technologies it’s working on. We saw and got to play with technologies like in-display selfie cameras and AR headsets at the 2019 event.

Now, the company has announced that it will be holding its Inno Day 2020 event on November 17 in Shenzhen, China (at 4PM local time). Check out the event image below.

So what could Oppo have up its sleeve next week? Frequent tipster Digital Chat Station notes that it’ll show off three concept products at Inno Day 2020. Furthermore, the leaker claims that Oppo is currently working on in-folding foldables, a new generation of in-display selfie cameras, 125W wired/65W wireless charging tech, and various optical zoom technologies. So we’d guess that at least one or two of these technologies will show up next week.

Oppo actually announced a hybrid zoom periscope lens system earlier this year, offering variable zoom between 3.3x and 5.4x and up to 11x hybrid zoom. It therefore stands to reason that we might see this tech in action at the event.

Hopefully some of these technologies demonstrated next week make their way into commercially available smartphones in 2021. What tech would you like to see from Oppo next year? Take our poll below!
