Oppo's new phone gives us an early glimpse at the OnePlus 7, pop-up camera and all

It's hardly a secret that OnePlus follows the design language of a current Oppo smartphone — OnePlus 6T took after the Oppo R17 Pro/F9, OnePlus 6 after the Oppo R15 Pro/F7, OnePlus 5T after the Oppo R11S/F5, and OnePlus 5 after the Oppo R11/F3. If this trend continues, the OnePlus 7 may end up looking a lot like the Oppo F11 Pro, which just went on sale in the Indian market.

Oppo's 10x optical zoom camera is ready for smartphones, and we used it

At a presentation ahead of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today, Oppo announced that its new 10x optical zoom smartphone camera system was ready for integration into commercial products. The company allowed a group of journalists to go hands-on with prototype phones utilizing the system in a series of min-dioramas, though the photos weren't made available for off-device viewing, making any kind of rigorous analysis basically impossible at this point.

The ARCore compatibility page was last updated just three weeks ago, but several more phones have just joined the club. The Moto G7 family is the most noteworthy addition, with some Chinese phones we don't get stateside added as well.

The Oppo R17 Pro and OnePlus 6T are twins separated at birth - but why?

OnePlus is something of a Cinderella story in the smartphone world. It seemed to appear out of nowhere, releasing a phone with numbers that matched the best the likes of Samsung and HTC had to offer - and did it at half the price. The OnePlus One went viral in a way few products do, and the rest is history (well, as much as four years can be “history”). OnePlus just keeps improving on that formula, most recently with the excellent OnePlus 6T, which I’ve had a chance to use for the last few weeks. And it really is a great phone - we even gave it our ‘Phone of the Year’ award.

Oppo to release a Find X variant with 10GB of RAM

Android phones used to come with a few hundred megabytes of RAM, then 1GB, and then 2 or 4GB. Now, 6 and even 8GB phones are common at the high-end. It's debatable if 8GB of RAM is useful on Android, but Oppo is pushing the envelope even further. A listing from Chinese regulator TENAA shows a version of the Find X with 10GB of RAM is on the way.

Oppo’s new R17 could become the basis for the OnePlus 6T

You can usually get a good idea what OnePlus' next phone will look like by keeping tabs on Chinese smartphone maker Oppo. The two firms share the same parent company and quite a lot of design resources. The R15 was a dead ringer for the OnePlus 6, and the R11S was basically the OnePlus 5T. The new R17 may very well be the foundation upon which OnePlus builds the still-unannounced 6T, and that could be cause for excitement. This phone has a tiny screen notch, slim bezels, and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Oppo Find X sports a bezel-free design with pop-up cameras

Everyone is trying to do away with bezels on smartphones, but necessities like front-facing cameras get in the way. That's why so many phones are shipping with screen notches lately. With the new Find X, Oppo is the second device maker to avoid the notch with a pop-up camera. Although, this phone actually puts all its cameras on the pop-up mechanism. It's a bit elaborate to avoid some bezel, but hey, no notch.
