It seems that the budding camera/smartphone hybrid market is set to become the next big thing for smartphone manufacturers, with many looking to bring their camera features more in line with point-and-shoot or even compact cameras. Oppo seems to be looking to enter this market with its new N-Lens Series smartphone.
From the leaked renders below, the N-Lens appears to house a slightly-protruding zoom lens with a flash positioned to the side. It’s said to house a 12-megapixel sensor.
Though it does seem the device is somewhat inspired by Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Zoom, it also looks more like a smartphone than Samsung’s recent entrant.
With no specs to go with the renders, we can only speculate as to what Oppo may have installed under the hood or when the N-Lens device will be launched.
