Oppo is Making a Custom ISP to Improve Camera Quality

Oppo filed a trademark known as the “Oppo M1” in 2019 which was believed to be a customized chipset. Back then, it was assumed that Oppo has employed engineers from MediaTek and SpreadTrum to work on an in-house designed chipset.

However, a brand new report from tipster Digital Chat Station shows that it’s not the case. He claims that the M1 chip is actually a customized Picture Signal Processor (ISP). For those unaware, an ISP is responsible for taking raw pixel information from the digital camera sensor and converting it into a final picture or video body. The better the processing, the better the final picture high quality.

Oppo has been relying on the {hardware} inside Snapdragon chipsets for its picture processing, but that’s about to change with the upcoming M1 chip.

This M1 chip will be the first product from Oppo’s Challenge Mariana staff (hence “M1”), put collectively specifically for designing the chip. This staff reportedly consists of engineers from sibling brands Oneplus and Realme, so it’s probably that their telephones will also function the M1 chip.

However, keep in mind that this doesn’t mean that Oppo is not working on a customized chipset. According to rumors, Xiaomi, Oppo, and some different Chinese language brands are working on 5G chipsets that may arrive later this 12 months. Although there no details on these chips just yet.
