It is known that cameras created with the participation of Hasselblad specialists will appear in the upcoming flagship smartphones of the Find X series from Oppo.We are talking about the use of advanced technologies in the field of color processing, the design of optical components, etc .
It should be noted that Hasselblad cameras are already equipped with OnePlus smartphones, the main share of which is owned by Oppo. Therefore, the parties intend to jointly develop the direction of cameras for mobile devices.
It is expected that the Hasselblad multi-module camera will be equipped with devices from the Find X5 family. The base model will reportedly get a 50-megapixel unit with optical stabilization, a 50-megapixel module with wide-angle optics (110 degrees) and a 13-megapixel unit with 5x hybrid zoom.

It is also reported that Oppo is about to start mass-producing cameras for smartphones equipped with a five-axis image stabilization system. The technology ensures the mobility of both the optics and the sensor itself. It will be able to compensate for 3-degree shifts as well as 0.7-degree rotations, which will significantly improve image stability when recording video. The solution is claimed to provide three times better stabilization compared to traditional systems currently used in smartphone cameras. The new technology is being used for the first time in commercial mobile devices.
