A statement from the company, part of the giant B.B.K. Electronics, said MariSilicon X included an NPU, an image signal processor and multi-tier memory architecture. The NPU is built using 6nm process technology.
An NPU is a microprocessor that specialises in speeding up machine learning algorithms, typically by operating on predictive models such as artificial neural networks or random forests.
The company claimed this technology would deliver "incredible performance with incomparable power efficiency, which makes real-time RAW processing possible to capture stunning 4K AI Night Video with live preview".
“With more than a decade of experience in pushing the boundaries of image technology, OPPO has been behind some of the biggest innovations in the industry when it comes to camera modules, lenses, and algorithms,” said Jiang Bo, OPPO’s senior director, during the event.
“Our new cutting-edge imaging NPU is the biggest leap we’ve taken so far, which brings more power to mobile imaging systems and will create an extraordinary experience for our users.”
Regarding Air Glass, Bo said, “OPPO has been exploring the possibilities of extended reality for a long time, and with Air Glass, we have finally created a smart glass product that is truly within the reach of consumers.
OPPO Australia managing director Michael Tran added" “As its futuristic design suggests, OPPO Air Glass is set to revolutionise the way we view and consume information. The easy-to-use display can present key messages we need right in front of our eyes. With OPPO Air Glass, the world will never look the same again.”
MariSilicon X will make its commercial debut in the Find X Series in the first quarter of 2022. Air Glass is due to launch in the same quarter in the Chinese Mainland market and will be available in black and white, along with two custom frame accessories.
