Chinese smartphone maker OPPO has announced that it will be supporting CameraX, the new Android Jetpack support library for camera app development unveiled by Google at Developer Days China (GDD 2019) on Wednesday.

CameraX allows developers to leverage the features on a device's native camera app and add functionality. OPPO plans to offer support on a number of its devices, including the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom and any future Reno devices.

A statement from the company said once CameraX was integrated on OPPO smartphones, developers could use the imaging technologies by adding minimal amounts of code.

There would be no need for device-specific code as the app experience on devices that supported CameraX could be improved by developers using OPPO's HDR and Beauty capabilities.

“OPPO is always committed to creating better user experiences with innovative products for our global users," said OPPO Australia managing director Michael Tran (right).

“We look forward to continuing to drive the development of the most innovative apps in the era of intelligent connectivity and create a better life for our users around the world.”

At the GDD 19, attendees were able to test smartphones, with and without CameraX, at OPPO's booth, and able to see the change in photo quality.

OPPO uses a customised version of Android, known as ColorOS, on its smartphones. It is one of two manufacturers to have released a 5G-capable smartphone, the other being Samsung.
