Oppo came to impress at MWC 2016, and so was everybody else. But the tech newcomer wanted to standout, and what better way than to introduce new technology “firsts”. They were the first smartphone maker to put a Full-HD display on a smartphone, and they’ve come a long way from that.
Eager to wow, OPPO announced 2 new industry firsts. Mr. Sky Li, Vice President of OPPO and Managing Director of International Mobile Business says these are “the results of our active listening to what our customers want through their feedback, as we aim to create more delightful mobile experiences for them in the future.”
This year, OPPO wants to make charging smartphones even faster with Super VOOC Flash Charging. This is an improved version of last year’s VOOC Flash Charging which gave a phone 2 hours worth of talk time with 5 minutes of charging. Super VOOC gives 10 hours of talk time with 5 minutes of charging and can fill-up a 2500 mAh battery in a whopping 15 minutes, something that’s definitely never been seen in any other smartphone.
In addition, OPPO claims that this technology keeps the unit cool, which makes it safer than other fast charging technologies. Super VOOC Flash Charging supports both Micro-USB and USB Type C interfaces and new, higher quality cables and adapters which will be included in future OPPO smartphone units.
OPPO also introduced SmartSensor Image Stabilization. This is basically an improvement to the usual optical image stabilization found in most flagships. Most of these are lens-based, meaning the lens mechanically adjusts to the movement, but it presented problems when it came to battery efficiency. OPPO is the first smartphone maker to introduce sensor-based stabilization features found in most DSLRs. Obviously, this should translate to less blurry photos when taken in motion and a more stable, smooth video taking experience. The introduction of this innovation is just another of OPPO’s efforts to be more associated to mobile photography.
We’re personally excited to experience both of these technologies and we can’t wait for OPPO’s next smartphones that will employ these. Are you excited, too? Let us know in the comments!
