Leading Chinese smartphone company OPPO on Tuesday kicked off its annual technology convention OPPO INNO DAY themed “Leap into the Future” in Shenzhen, debuting three concept products, including OPPO X 2021 rollable concept handset, OPPO AR Glass 2021 and OPPO CybeReal AR application.
The company put forward “Technology for Mankind, Kindness for the World” and “virtuous innovation” at the event this year, unveiling for the first time the “3+N+X” technology development strategy.
Tony Chen, founder and CEO of OPPO, pointed out that the company is determined to pursue virtuous innovation and create more great products through its 3+N+X strategy, in which “3” represents the three underlying technologies including hardware, software and services technologies, “N” stands for a number of OPPO’s essential capabilities such as AI, security and privacy, multimedia and interconnectivity, and “X” refers to strategic resources like flash charge technology.
Among the three concept products, the OPPO X 2021 rollable concept handset is the latest achievement of OPPO’s R&D in flexible display and structural stacking, which features OPPO’s three proprietary technologies, including the Roll Motor powertrain, 2-in-1 Plate, and self-developed Warp Track high-strength screen laminate. The product leads to a continuously variable OLED display that measures as small as 6.7 inches and as large as 7.4 inches, which allows users to adjust the size of the display based on actual needs.
Both compact and ultra-light, the OPPO AR Glass 2021 adopts the split design, and is 75% lighter than its predecessor. As for the core components, OPPO AR Glass 2021 is built with the Birdbath optical solution, enhancing the immersive experience.
Featuring diverse sensors such as a stereo fisheye camera, one ToF sensor, and one RGB camera, the glasses not only supports a number of natural interactions, including interactions via smartphone, gesture-based interactions, and spatial localization, but also completes the 3D spatial localization calculation within milliseconds, achieving precise localization and offering users a real and natural experience of spatial interaction in the AR world through constant updates and feedback using the real-time position of the user within the space.
Powered by real-time and spatial calculation technology, the CybeReal AR application enables high-precision localization and scene recognition, and is supported by OPPO’s three core technologies, including accurately reconstructing the world down to the centimeter, real-time high-precision localization, and OPPO Cloud, enriching user’s perception and understanding of the real world.
