OPPO got a few design patents last month. As usual, LetsGoDigital drew renders accordingly. The front panel uses a very common curved design, and the diameter of the lens hole is close to the thickness of the upper frame. The rear lens has three horizontal sensors that are similar to the shield design of the Samsung Galaxy S10.

The source said that the design of this model is similar to the current top OPPO flagship machine. One of the three rear lenses is square. This means it will be a zoom lens. The other two may be larger and they should correspond to the main camera and the ultra-wide-angle lens.
In the space on the right side of the lens module, it is expected the phone will integrate flash accessories. The company can also mark some keywords here, for example, ‘Hybrid Zoom’. Something like this was seen in the OPPO Find X2 Pro.
Because it is an appearance patent, OPPO does not mention 15x zoom in the aforementioned patent. But last week, there was a patent for an OPPO 15x hybrid zoom smartphone. So LetsGoDigital integrated this element into the phone.
OPPO has launched a number of models that support 5x or 10x zoom. And as technology changes, zoom and technical practicability will be further realized in the future.
It is still unclear which series OPPO will apply this design to. But considering the previous version, it is most likely to be the Reno series of phones. Of course, because it is a top 15x zoom optical system, OPPO may also use this design directly in the top-end Find X series. OPPO also said that the next Find X series models will be released in Q1 next year. Of course, they will sport the Snapdragon 888 chip.
