What upgrades can the Full-path color 10bit bring to the mobile phone experience

OPPO has officially released the Find X3 series of mobile phones . According to the usual positioning of the Find series, the Find X3 series is definitely also a comprehensive flagship configuration blessing. However, in addition to high-end configurations such as 120Hz high refresh screen and dual 50 million pixel rear camera modules, the most interesting is the full-link 10bit color engine carried by the OPPO Find X3 series.

What is a full-link 10bit color engine? What is the use? What improvements have been made to the mobile phone experience? I think everyone is also very interested in the concept of “full link 10bit”. This time the author will also interpret what OPPO’s “full link 10bit” concept is. In fact, in an article in November last year, I have already explained the full-link color management in detail-a detailed explanation of the full-path color management system .

However, no manufacturer was able to use full-link color at the time. Now the OPPO Find X3 series has really used full-link color. Let’s take a look at the experience that full-link color brings us to using mobile phones.

The so-called full-link 10bit color engine means that the entire image processing process from shooting, encoding, storage, decoding, and display is supported by 10bit color, and each link has the ability to process 10bit data (click on key points). The advantage of this is that it can solve the incompatibility problem of the underlying system for 10bit image information. It is represented by pictures as shown in the figure below:

The OPPO Find X3 series, with the support of the full link 10bit, can bring users the most realistic and rich color content and accurately restore the display. In terms of storage, the OPPO Find X3 series supports 10bit HEIF format storage. This format supports up to 16bit color depth and has a storage volume that is half smaller than JPEG. No matter if you are a photographer or a professional photographer, you don’t need to worry about insufficient mobile phone storage.

A brief introduction to the full-link 10bit color supported by the OPPO Find X3 series, then where is the full-link 10bit “full”? Where is the upgrade? The author will sort it out in detail for everyone.

As the first link of the entire link, taking pictures is naturally the top priority of the OPPO Find X3 series. In terms of hardware, the OPPO Find X3 series has 1 billion color dual main cameras, and its wide-angle main camera and ultra-wide-angle both use the IMX766 sensor. It is reported that this is the first time that the flagship IMX766 sensor has been applied to ultra-wide-angle shooting, which means that the OPPO Find X3 series has won The industry’s largest sensor area and ultra-wide-angle with the highest pixels.

At the same time, the OPPO Find X3 series also uses 7P lenses and free-form surface lenses, which can achieve hardware-level anti-distortion. In addition, the OPPO Find X3 series is also the industry’s first to be equipped with a microscope lens that supports 60 times magnification.

In terms of software/functions, the RAW+ professional photography function supported by the OPPO Find X3 series also allows it to gain greater post-production space and scenery shooting creative capabilities than ordinary RAW. The OPPO Find X3 series in professional mode can not only directly produce 10bit “super original”, but also superimpose the HDR function compared with ordinary RAW, which makes the photo details more powerful.

The two Jiang Wen movie filters jointly launched by OPPO and Jiang Wen director can make the videos taken by Find X3 series users more Jiang Wen “taste”: Among them, Jiang Wen Movie No. 1 can give people a kind of returning to the summer of fifteen or sixteen. It’s warm, and Jiang Wen Movie No. 2 can give the video content a unique black and white film texture and charm.

Compared with other mobile phones, the OPPO Find X3 series can complete 10bit video shooting, 10bit color processing, 10bit video sharing, and 10bit video viewing. This complete set of full-link 10bit color schemes runs through the entire video recording, post-production, uploading, and viewing links. , The color, quality, convenience of mobile phone video recording and the quickness of video upload are “locked” in the OPPO Find X3 series.

Taking photos/videos that can take 10bit colors, the viewing experience naturally also needs to be 10bit level. OPPO Find X3 series has a 6.7-inch QHD+ resolution 120Hz refresh rate screen. This screen with a PPI value of 525 and 100% P3 wide color gamut coverage also supports native 1 billion color display, hardware-level intelligent dynamic frame rate and The latest LTPO hybrid backplane technology, the screen brightness can be automatically adjusted to 8192, the display effect is exquisite and excellent, the brightness changes smoothly and comfortably, the refresh rate experience is smooth and the power consumption is low.

Summary: In fact, OPPO’s 10bit full link concept is not difficult to understand. Combined with the positioning of the OPPO Find X3 series “color image flagship”, it can be seen that most of the OPPO Find X3 series linked to color sensory experience and image linkage have the blessing of 10bit color. It runs through the three levels of photography, video, and display. These are also well presented under the quite comprehensive software/hardware configuration blessings of the OPPO Find X3 series, which will undoubtedly bring a brand new visual experience to users.

The author agrees with one sentence: “The image must not only be clear, but also record the color.” Although many flagship mobile phones now have higher pixels, more comprehensive focal lengths, faster focusing and other improvements, these upgrades can indeed bring users a clear image experience of almost all scenes. However, as a flagship mobile phone, you should not only be satisfied with this. The flagship image should have the blessing of color, and should be rich in the emotion and even memory of the photographer. Obviously, the OPPO Find X3 series knows this well.
