After yesterday’s mind-blowing demo of its roll-up smartphone, the Oppo X 2021, the Chinese firm is now teasing the next big update to its flagship series of phones, The Oppo Find X3, which will support the full DCI-P3 wide color gamut and depth of native 10-bit color for its arrival in 2021.
The color management system Oppo Full-path is the first Android color management system to support the full DCI-P3 gamut and color depth of 10-bit capture, storage and display from start to finish.
To clarify, many phones and monitors are already advertised as “10-bit” compliant, but some of them they were actually “8 + 2-bit” also known as “8-bit + FRC” (“Frame rate control”), which is a way of mimicking the performance of the 10-bit screen using a native 8-bit panel. In fact, the company itself was a participant in one of these cases with the Find X2 Pro, in this case under the full transparency of its “trap”, so the new claim to truly reach 10 bits natively results from what most promising.
Oppo Full-path introduces itself a comprehensive solution covering all steps, which apparently required «Rewrite the underlying system«, from image acquisition to calculation, encoding, storage, decoding and finally display, supporting a HEIF image with a 10-bit color depth and the entire wide P3 color gamut.
For this, this Oppo Full-path management system uses complex algorithm and hardware with the objective of registering the color in the capture. The algorithms have been created in areas such as distortion correction, multi-stream noise reduction, and extreme perceptual super-resolution.
In addition, the Oppo Find X3 will support image sensors with HDR digital overlay (DOL) mode, a technology that will allow you to synthesize different exposure conditions in an image, allowing you to capture bright colors even when photos are taken against the light.
On the other hand, Oppo has also announced the upcoming inclusion of a new function, Color Correction Solution 2.0, which seeks to take advantage of this new color accuracy to benefit those who suffer from color vision deficiency and other related conditions. This functionality will be based on Android’s default color correction mode in the accessibility settings, increasing the efficiency of the current three options for deuteranomaly (Red Green), protanomaly (red-green) and tritanomaly (blue-yellow), thanks to the partnership with Zhejiang University.
