Oppo to campete Sony with Smart Lens

Last year we saw Sony introducing the QX10 and QX100 lens-cameras. Devices that looked like the interchangeable lenses you might attach to an SLR camera, but fully-contained cameras in and of themselves. They had their own power,storage, and connectivit, the only really lacking thing is a display, which you would clip them onto existing phones ,and later tablets, to take advantage of the photographic flexibility big sensors and optical zoom provided.

Functionality-wise, Oppo’s Smart Lens looks like nearly identical to the Sony lens-cameras. While what you see here apparently supports a 10x zoom, there’s also been a 15x option rumored. Resolution has also yet to be confirmed, but you could be looking at a 16MP sensor, no word on physical size yet.
