The Oppo Reno 10x zoom comes with three rear cameras – one of the first ever periscopes on a phone, an 8 MP ultrawide cam and a 48 MP main camera. Initially, only the last one could be used for video capture, but now the ColorOS 7.1 update allows recording using the other two cameras.
Now while recording, you can go wide or zoom in – the periscope offers 5x optical, 10x hybrid and up to 30x digital zoom.
It works only at 1080p resolution and 30 fps. To go higher, users can use the main camera only (which goes up to 4K at 60 fps).
The update with version number PCCM00_11_C.24, brings this feature and it is currently being rolled out in China. ColorOS 7.1 is available outside of China, though not for the 10x zoom for now.
