The 10x hybrid optical zoom can be used through the telephoto, super wide-angle and the main camera to achieve an effective zoom range of 15.9mm to 159mm.

According to leaks, the Oppo F19 and F19 Pro would be the first phones to feature this 5x and 10x hybrid optical zoom technology. There's little else that we know about the phones apart this.

Meanwhile, the company is also gearing up to launch the F11 Pro, which is hitting the Indian market on March 5. The phone is said to have a 48-megapixel pop-up selfie camera and a Super Night Mode, presumably to take on Google's Night Sight camera feature.
