Oppo lens attachment revealed with NFC and 10x optical zoom

Photos of a rumored Oppo NFC camera attachment have surfaced over on Weibo. The accessory, fitted to the Oppo Find 7, looks almost identical to Sony's QX series of products. The 10x optical zoom accessory even captures images the same way – through Wi-Fi.

Looking at the photos, the Oppo external lens attachment has its own power supply (physical power button present) and can work independently. It's not known whether or not this product will work with phones from other vendors, but we can't imagine there being any compatibility issues. It'll be a solid investment for those who demand more from their smartphone.

  • Looking forward to the reviews of this device... Also, I hope this competition is enough to see great things come out of the Sony camp--in regards to the second gen QX Series. Posted via the Android Central App on my Nexus 5
  • NFC? In 2014? Posted via Android Central App
  • Yeah! How dare they use technology available in every useful smartphone in 2014?
  • With my reputation? Posted via Android Central App
  • Because Sony sold a plethora of these things? Posted via Android Central App on my Republic Wireless Moto X
  • At this point, maybe you should just consider buying an SLR camera?
  • Needs a flash!
  • That just looks ridiculous. As said before, just buy a normal DSLR!
  • Great minds think alike. See below. Posted via Android Central App
  • That thing looks ridiculously ridiculous :-) like the phone has a hard-on. Posted via Android Central App
  • To everyone that's saying DSLR, does your DSLR get updates? Posted via SPARK enabled Sprint LG G2 that still spins fast after using 60GB in a billing cycle. {No Overages}
  • Yes DSLR's get firmware updates periodically.
  • In the case of pro DSLRs, almost regularly. Posted via Android Central App
  • So what does the phone actually do as part of the picture taking process? The lens takes the photo?
    Why does it need to be attached to the phone?
  • You guys are missing the point. No one is buying the smartphone to use this device. They've made the device so the OPPO Find7, and presumably other NFC capable smartphones can take DSLR quality photos without the added expense (or bulk) of another camera. It does look idiotic though! Posted via Android Central App
