On August 19, Oppo hosted the Oppo Future Imaging Technology Conference, where the company demonstrated a plethora of new technological innovations ranging from three dimensions of sensors, modules, and algorithms to self-developed imaging technology.
The new image technology launched by Oppo includes RGBW light-catching sensor, continuous optical zoom, five-axis motion image stabilization technology, and OPPO’s next-generation under-screen camera solution equipped with a smart AI image algorithm set.
The new generation RGBW light-catching sensors feature the white sub-pixels, improving the sensor sensitivity along with Oppo’s own four-in-one pixel algorithm with DTI pixel isolation technology. The four-in-one pixel algorithm avoids color misalignment and will also ensure the processor saves a lot of computing power. Furthermore, the DTI pixel isolation technology can reduce crosstalk between sensor sub-pixels at the microscopic level. The RGBW light-catching sensors will deliver better quality images. Oppo is hoping to get this working in its products in the fourth quarter of 2021.
As for the module, Oppo has introduced a new continuous zoom technology that features the G+P (2GM+5P) lens technology; Moreover, with the introduction of two aspherical molded glass, dispersion will be reduced significantly. The TMR sensor will control the movement of the lens group, and the dynamic tilt angle in the middle will ensure a high-magnified continuous lossless optical zoom. Including these new technologies will continue supporting optical zoom, equivalent to 85mm-200mm focal length.
Another new invention showcased at the event is the five-axis motion anti-shake technology. When this mode is turned on, the processor will gather data from the gyroscope, and then with the help of the algorithm, it will send the shake data to the lens and the sensor. OPPO’s five-axis motion stabilization has a maximum anti-shake angle of ±3°. The anti-shake accuracy of Oppo is closer to professional SLR five-axis optical image stabilization. The five-axis motion stabilization will come in handy in the case of night scenes or sports captures. This technology is expected to be used in Oppo products in the first quarter of 2022.
Oppo also demonstrated a next-gen under-screen camera solution. This comes with a 400PPI pixel density. The single-pixel which is integrated within this camera solution cooperates with the display algorithm, and the full-screen chromaticity difference and brightness difference are controlled within 2%. To control the diffraction problem, Oppo continues to train the AI de-diffraction algorithm model through a database that consists of thousands of photos.
