Vivo, the renowned smartphone manufacturer, recently showcased its latest innovation in imaging technology at the Vivo Image Festival in China. The highlight of the event was the unveiling of Vivo’s proprietary V3 imaging chip, a product of advanced 6nm process technology. This new chip marks a significant leap in energy efficiency, boasting a 30% increase compared to its predecessor.
The V3 chip is engineered with a novel multi-concurrent AI perception-ISP architecture and a second-generation FIT interconnection system. These advancements contribute to a reduction in power consumption and an enhancement in algorithm performance. Moreover, the chip ensures a seamless connection between the V-chip and the System on a Chip (SoC) through its flexible algorithm deployment.
In a remarkable demonstration of the V3 chip’s capabilities, Vivo presented the first-ever 4K movie portrait video on an Android platform. This feature offers a cinematic experience with movie-level bokeh blur, optimized skin quality, and advanced color processing.
The V3 chip also enables 4K-level shooting with the added benefit of post-editing functionality. This allows users to adjust the blurring and focus positions in the photo album without causing any destructive changes to the original image. This feature is a testament to Vivo’s commitment to providing users with superior control over their photography and videography experiences.
