(610PM): Article updated with information of the new techs announced by OPPO. Read more below.
True enough to its promise before the event, OPPO is introducing two new technologies at Mobile World Congress 2016 as we speak. One of them is called SmartSensor which essentially an implementation of image stabilization but instead on the lens of the camera, the company did it on the camera sensor itself.
At the same time, OPPO has also introduced an improved charging technology called Super VOOC. The improvement apparently allows a 2,500 mAh battery to be charged fully in just 15 minutes. OPPO actually showed it in action at the press event as the battery level of the demo phone on stage goes from 5 to 58-percent in just 5 minutes with the help of the new tech.
Stay tuned as we update this post with more information regarding OPPO’s new SmartSensor and SuperVOOC coming your way soon.
Now that OPPO’s press conference at MWC 2016 is already over, we now have a better idea of what these new technologies are all about.
Developed through a collaboration with MEMS Drive who is known for its microelectromechanical system (MEMS) actuators, OPPO’s new SmartSensor technology compensates motions on three axes as opposed to just two axes on a standard lens-based IS system. OPPO’s solution is apparently quicker as well at 15ms as compared to 50ms on a lens-based IS in terms of achieving stabilization.
Other than that, the SmartSensor tech apparently consumes less power and is much more precise than a lens-based IS system. OPPO even dare enough to claim it as the first pixel-level IS tech for smartphones in the world.
As for the new Super VOOC Flash Charge tech, it apparently utilizes a new low-voltage pulse-charge system alongside a customized battery. OPPO also stated that the company has implemented a new algorithm to regulate the current while charging together with premium and reliable materials for Super VOOC’s adapter, cable, connector to ensure that it is safe for usage.
Since the Super VOOC supports both Micro USB and USB Type-C connectors, this should allow OPPO to implement the tech on their devices regardless of their price point. As interesting as these two technologies might sound like, OPPO didn’t reveal any release timeline for them but nevertheless, they do sounds like features that are suitable for the company’s upcoming flagship device, the Find 9.
