Optical zoom is currently one of the most important smartphone camera features that appeals to users. Unfortunately, the physical characteristics of a lens makes it challenging to design a single camera smartphone setup that includes optical zoom without sacrificing the phone’s overall appearance or thinness.
Through many years of trials geared to fulfill users’ desire for an optical zoom feature, wide-angle + telephoto dual camera module solutions have finally been widely accepted into the industry. This dual camera setup harnesses the unique physical properties the lenses of both a wide-angle camera and a telephoto camera possess. When combined with ArcSoft advanced video and image fusion algorithms, users are provided with a smooth, high-quality zooming experience.
