Bringing users closer to AI experiences with the world’s lightest binocular aR glasses
Thanks to its ability to understand various data types, including text, images, video, and audio, multimodal AI technology is able to process and interpret more complex user scenarios, unlocking new potential in user interactions, such as voice and visual. While XR (extended reality) devices present new possibilities in implementing these features, they require both advanced functionality and lightweight designs if they are to truly take on the role of a personal, everyday smart assistant. Driven by this vision, OPPO has introduced the all-new OPPO Air Glass 3 prototype to explore the possibilities of AI technology based on cross-device collaboration between XR devices and smartphones.

Weighing just 50 grams, the OPPO Air Glass 3 features a self-developed resin waveguide with a refractive index of 1.70, a display brightness uniformity of more than 50%, and a peak eye brightness of more than 1,000 nits. Together, these ensure the OPPO Air Glass 3 provides a wearing experience that is close to that of a regular pair of glasses while also providing the best full-color display of its kind. Thanks to the access to OPPO AndesGPT provided by the Air Glass APP on the smartphone, users only need to lightly press the temple of the OPPO Air Glass 3 to activate the AI voice assistant and begin performing a range of tasks.

The OPPO Air Glass 3 also supports touch interaction, which can be used to easily control functions such as music playback, voice calls, information display, color image browsing, and more. The glasses also feature reverse sound field technology, an open acoustic design with four microphones, and other innovations that improve noise isolation to deliver high audio quality and enhanced privacy protection.

Embracing AI with the new OPPO AI Center
AI has long been a core area of investment and development for OPPO, and the company is now taking a number of steps to elevate AI to the core of its long-term growth strategy. On February 20, OPPO established the OPPO AI Center — a new hub designed to better focus the company’s resources towards R&D in AI and drive cutting-edge, user-centric exploration of technology and applications that aim to bring the benefits of AI to everyone.

As part of this commitment, OPPO Reno11 Series and the OPPO Find N3 in global markets will be equipped with an array of generative AI features, including OPPO AI Eraser, within the second quarter of 2024. In the future, OPPO will integrate generative AI features into more OPPO products in the global markets, including the next generation of the Reno series, allowing more users to experience the smart, powerful, and convenient lifestyle empowered by AI.

As of December 31, 2023, OPPO has filed over 3,160 global patents related to AI. Drawing on years of technical experience in AI, OPPO recently released the AI Smartphone White Paper, providing a comprehensive analysis and outlook on future trends and key applications in AI. The white paper points out that AI Smartphones will replace traditional smartphones to trigger a new revolution in the mobile phone industry. With the widespread adoption of AI, the entire industry will undergo various upgrades and expansions, creating a new AI Smartphone ecosystem encompassing the development of computing resources, function modules, native AI services, LLM, and AI agents.

Building an AI ecosystem through collaborative innovation
A mature AI ecosystem requires open collaboration throughout the industry. As part of its commitment to supporting the creation of this ecosystem, OPPO’s efforts in AI extend far beyond its own innovations to encompass a diverse portfolio of collaborations with a range of global partners.

At this year’s MWC, OPPO is joining motion vision sensor startup, AlpsenTek, and Qualcomm Technologies to showcase the trio’s collaborative efforts to pioneer the use of Hybrid Vision Sensing technologies featuring the new AI Motion algorithm. Developed under OPPO’s lead, AI Motion can perform image deblurring and high frame rate image interpolation for use in high-speed cameras based on a combination of traditional RBG image data and event vision sensing (EVS) motion data. Using AI Motion, smartphones offer advanced solutions to address image and photo blur, enabling the capture of true 960fps slow-motion videos in 4K resolution. Leveraging EVS data for precise moving object alignment between frames enhances both dynamic range and resolution. This technological integration opens up exciting possibilities in image and video capture, elevating the potential for creative content creation.

Meanwhile, a series of OPPO innovative products, including the OPPO Find X7 Ultra and the Find N3 series, is also being showcased at Google’s Android Partner Walk, demonstrating the comprehensive cooperation between OPPO and Google in creating smarter user experiences over the years.

During the event, OPPO and Microsoft announced that they will work closely together and explore AI technology to enhance user experience on different devices. Soon through Microsoft Link to Windows and a new plugin, OPPO users will be able to use Copilot to generate content, translate text messages, and search addresses on their smartphones via a connected PC.

With the startup community also playing a critical role in the development of AI and other cutting-edge technologies, OPPO is taking the opportunity at MWC 4YFN to introduce six startup teams at the OPPO Inspiration Zone. Among the technologies to be demonstrated by the startups include contactless health monitoring technology, an intelligent diagnosis system for heart and lung auscultation, an AR game, and other applications that showcase the vast potential implementation of AI technologies.

Under its mission of “Technology for Mankind, Kindness for the World”, OPPO will continue to invest in the development and application of AI, working closely with partners around the world to introduce more industry-leading products and services that bring enhanced mobile experiences to users while creating a more open and advanced global technology ecosystem.
