OPPO’s camera innovation has reached new heights with the development of its neural processing unit MariSilicon XThe brand—known for its software and hardware technologies that enhance camera performance—continues to push the envelope when it comes to image processing. This evolution has been developed over three significant areas of innovation.



OPPO’s engineers have developed algorithms that render accurate Indian skin tones and even create Bokeh Flare Portrait Videos. OPPO's AI can distinguish between skin blemishes and beauty spots—as well as the age and sex of the subject—to apply different levels of beautification and skin smoothening.


OPPO's cameras recognise shooting scenarios and lighting to select the appropriate camera mode, including HDR for those perfect wide-exposure shots without user intervention.


On the hardware front, the brand collaborated with Sony to develop its all-new RGBW (red, green, blue, white) pixel array technology that is an update from traditional RGGB (red, green, green, blue) sensors. This proprietary technology, which involves 87 technical patent applications, inserts W (transparent) pixels in each RGGB pixel to allow 60% more light and a 20.2% increase in purity when compared with regular RGGB sensors.


Essentially, it translates to more detailed low-light captures and improved skin tones in portraits. OPPO and Sony debuted this new RGBW technology in the Reno7 Series with the IMX709 selfie sensor, which continues to drive better light handling and colour tones in OPPO's portrait photography.
