vivo’s yearly Special Event, the 2023 vivo Imaging Conference in Xining, China saw the company unveiled the V3 chip.
The chip is said to be a state-of-the-art 6nm customized V3 chip, as well as the latest algorithm technology.
This chip incorporates a newly designed multi-concurrent AI-ISP architecture and the second-generation Frame Info Tunneling (FIT) technology which vivo says delivers a superior user experience by enabling 4K cinema-like bokeh, automatic subject focus detection and switching, cinema-like skin optimization, and cinematic colour processing.
This in turn will make vivo the first Android phone maker to enable 4K cinema-quality portrait video with post-processing functions.
Aside from that, the company also announced a comprehensive algorithm matrix solution which saw the company’s new vivo Origin Imaging Engine (VOIE) enhances image quality, colour, tone, and computing functionality.
This is done by advancing the underlying algorithmic capabilities for three sub-modules: Colour Restoration Engine, Ultra HD Engine, and Accelerated Computing Engine.
Also developed was the Hyper-Sense Portrait System and Vast-Sky Night System, based on common portrait and night scene user scenarios.
The company also revealed a periscope lens with the new ‘Vario-Apo-Sonnar’ standards which it developed in partnership with ZEISS.
The APO design is known for its industry-leading control of chromatic aberration, and it will be adapted to a mobile imaging system, enhancing high-performance zoom quality.
vivo also made it known that upcoming X series flagship model will feature the ZEISS T* Coating equipped with Multi-ALD technology.
This technology will further enhance image clarity by reducing centre reflectivity from 0.2% to 0.1% on the visible light spectrum.
Also announced during the event is vivo’s deep collaboration with MediaTek for its X80 series, as well as plans by the company to collaborate with Sony on the 2-layer pixel (stack pixel) technology and HDR.
Also in the pipeline is collaborations with Adobe, Apple, and Google to improve HDR photo standardization.
vivo also used the event to announce the winners of the 2023 VISION+ Mobile PhotoAwards.
Indonesian photographer Jiehan Herry Saputro’s ‘Let Me Fly’ was crowned the Best Photograph of The Year for the PhotoAwards.
