OPPO Find X5 series exclusive interview: Creating high-end milestone self-developed chip initial success
On February 24th, OPPO officially released a new generation of flagship Find X5 series, among which the most striking is the Find X5 Pro equipped with OPPO’s self-developed NPU chip for the first time — the flagship phone of Mariana MariSilicon X. With its unprecedented powerful computing power and energy efficiency ratio, combined with the new generation of Snapdragon 8 flagship performance, For the first time, it brings users unprecedented computing image experience such as chip-level 4K night view video, chip-level HDR video and chip-level App camera enhancement.
After the press conference, Mr. Jie Li, President of OPPO Find product line, and Mr. Qionglin Chen, product manager of OPPO Find X5 series, gave an interview to explain the product design, market positioning and functional performance of OPPO Find X5 series.
MTK to break through the high-end
It is revealed that OPPO has a very close relationship with MTK. According to statistics, OPPO produced the largest number of chips from MTK throughout the year. OPPO and MTK had in-depth communication on the definition of OPPO Find X5 Pro Breguet edition, and they worked together to locate this product. The high-end breakthrough is that OPPO and MTK are the most important strategies.
As the first first breguet 9000 products, want to impact the high-end, must not because of impulse or the price is low, resulting in product experience or word of mouth problems. So Find X5 Pro Breguet edition in addition to the real time can not be adjusted to the two components, like IP68 waterproof and dustproof, top screen and many other flagship accessories, all mounted on Find X5 Pro Breguet edition. Including 12G+256G, also to make it run more smoothly, better experience, Breguet 9000 together with OPPO Find X5 Pro Breguet edition to make flagship phones one more choice.
The Mariana X chip exceeded expectations with dual chip dual flagship
The OPPO Find X5 is powered by the Mariana MariSilicon X, OPPO’s first self-developed imaging chip. It is the first image-specific NPU of OPPO under DSA’s new gold architecture concept and TSMC’s advanced 6nm process. In addition to providing unprecedented powerful computing power and energy efficiency ratio, it has realized the overall evolution of video processing.
The MariLumi needle, the mariana MariSilicon X’s integrated self-developed image processing unit, smoothly computs video data volumes in 4K. Pixel-level processing speeds allow the smart HDR fusion algorithm to run on the front end of the unit, resulting in an impressive 20bit 120dB (20 stops) dynamic range, four times more than the Find X3 Pro for 20bit Ultra HDR super dynamic range. The Mariana MariSilicon X also front-loads complex calculations in the RAW domain to output more accurate RAW image information for the overall image link. Both clarity and dynamic range are superior to traditional YUV domain processing.
OPPO has for the first time realized full-link vertical integration in the field of computational imaging, including integration of chips and self-developed algorithms, integration of chips and common platforms, and integration of chips and deeply customized sensors, which can fully serve OPPO’s customized computational imaging needs. The MariSilicon X and SOC will form the left and right brain of the core computing of mobile phones, opening the era of one phone and two cores.
Li jie predicted that a dual-core machine will exist for many years to come. Over the next two or three years, if not longer, OPPO will continue to follow this line of thinking, and will gradually move down the low-end models so that they can achieve flagship-level imaging in some scenarios without the main chip capabilities.
Image continues to power the leading suspension anti – shake
OPPO developed its own “suspension anti-shake” technology, which can increase the anti-shake amplitude by three times, and has a better image optimization effect for multiple scenes.
The Find X5 series is equipped with a suspension system capable of dual optical stabilization with OIS+Sensor SHFIT, which provides five axis stabilization, including two lens axes and three Sensor axes, three times as much as the normal OIS stabilization. The five-axis anti-shake operation of pitch, swing, horizontal translation, vertical translation and rotation can be realized in a small space of the body. It is the first time that the five-axis optical anti-shake operation of professional-grade camera is applied to the mobile field, and its suspension anti-shake module costs more than 50 dollars, while the iPhone Pro Max only supports three-axis anti-shake.
In addition to the five-axis suspension anti-shake technology, OPPO Find X5 series is also equipped with a self-developed chip Mariana MariSilicon X and 3A algorithm on Find X5 Pro for self-development, 3A algorithm can be in some cases such as pure color or large area of color confusion, The self-developed 3A algorithm can also bring more accurate restoration, and the self-developed image processing unit integrated with The MariSilicon X can smoothly calculate the amount of 4K video data, and finally make the dynamic range of the picture greatly improved, 4 times higher than the Find X3 Pro. 20bit Ultra HDR dynamic range.
