Today, at its ‘Future Imaging Technology Launch Event,’ Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo revealed a collection of new and improved technologies it plans to bring to its devices in the future. Amongst the new technologies is a new RGBW sensor, a continuous 85–200mm optical zoom camera module, a five-axis optical image stabilization (OIS) camera module and a ‘next generation’ under-screen camera solution.
New RGBW sensor
The first new technology is its next-generation RGBW sensor, which Oppo claims can capture 60% more light than previous-generation sensors while offering a 35% reduction in noise. The new RGBW sensor is an improvement on the original Sony IMX278 RGBW sensor it used in its R7 Plus smartphone released in 2015.
Amongst other improvements, Oppo says it’s added deep-trench isolation between the pixels to reduce cross-talk and developed a new ‘Quadra pixel binning algorithm’ designed to reduce moiré, which was a problem with early generations of its RGBW sensors. Oppo claims this is the first time ‘a self-developed algorithm from a smartphone company has been embedded in a CMOS sensor.
The first products to use this new sensor are expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2021, according to Oppo.
