The funny thing about life-changing technology is that once we’re used to it, we forget what life was like before we had it. So it’s worth remembering, once in a while, the people responsible for it. Here are seven smartphone innovations that we owe to OPPO.
1. Incorporated Beautify Function
In 2012, OPPO became the first phone maker to incorporate the "Beautify" function in their products with the launch of two revolutionary smartphones – the U701 Ulike and U705T Ulike 2.
2. HDR and High-Speed Video Recording
Launched In December 2013, the OPPO Find 5 was the world’s first smartphone with hardware supporting HDR video recording. It was also the first to allow high-speed recording at 120/90 frames per second at 480P and 720P respectively.
3. The First Motorised Rotating Camera
With the 2014 launch of the OPPO N3, relying on subpar front-facing cameras for selfies became a thing of the past. The motorised rotation also allowed for stunning panoramic photos.
4. VOOC Flash Charge
Also launched in 2014, the VOOC Flash Charge system delivered two hours of talktime with a five-minute charge and a 0% to 75% charging time of 30 minutes.
5. Screen Flash Technology
Launched several months before the iPhone’s retina flash in 2015, Screen Flash combined with the upgraded Beautify 3.0 feature that lets users capture their natural beauty even in low-light conditions.
6. First Ever Sensor-Based, Pixel-Level Optical Image Stabilizer
Making use of a cutting-edge micro-electro mechanical system (MEMS), OPPO’s SmartSensor became the first-ever sensor-based stabilisation solution for smartphones with its launch this year. SmartSensor is also the smallest optical image stabilizer of any kind in the world.
7. Super VOOC Flash Charge
Taking the next step from VOOC Flash Charge, Super VOOC Flash Charge is now the fastest smartphone charging technology in the world. It provides 10 hours of talktime with a five-minute charge and a 0% to 100% charging time of just 15 minutes (2500mAh battery).
