Nokia’s Lumia 1020 smartphone may have a crazy high-resolution 41MP camera. But it looks like Chinese phone maker Oppo may be preparing to go even crazier.

Leaked photos that appear to have been snapped with an unreleased Oppo Find 7 smartphone suggest it could have a 50MP camera.

Update: It turns out the Oppo Find 7 has a 13MP camera… but it uses software to stitch multiple shots together to create 50MP images

The ability to cram more pixels into a photo doesn’t always make for better images. But Nokia’s PureView camera does have one big benefit: By snapping high-res images, you can zoom in pretty tightly without the need for a bulky optical zoom and without using the often-horrible digital zoom found on most cameras.

  1. Separately, it appears that Ford has dropped Microsoft from its
    Sync offering, apparently opting to go with QNX, which formed
    the basis of BlackBerry’s tablet OS. Microsoft’s software was
    said to be too slow.

    I guess all those nightmares of having to reboot one’s stalled Microsoft
    guided car on the freeway can now be allayed, for now at least.

    1. This had everything to do with all the negative press Ford was getting from the Ford Sync. Check out the Consumer Reports thoughts on Ford Sync if you’re not familiar.

  2. So…. what’s the OS actually running in the car, no mention if it’s some kind of iOS variant, so I’m gonna guess… QNX?

    1. Unlikely to be QNX, Blackberry owns the licensing rights for QNX these days and they aren’t likely to let Apple use it… more likely just a customized version of iOS, especially if it’s suppose to work with iOS and Apple services like Siri…
