Oppo Find X3 will be the next generation of flagship devices that the Chinese company will unveil early next year. But Oppo is giving us a first taste of what we can expect from the Find X3. Among some of the latest top-of-the-line specs the Find X3 will feature, its display and camera will undergo a major overhaul. Oppo announced the DCI-P3 wide color gamut and 10-bit color depth support for all device features including capture, storage and display. Oppo calls this technology the Full Path Color Management System.
If this is all too jargon, let me simplify what Oppo is doing with this new technology. The phone uses a standard to transfer color information from the camera lens to the phone memory on the display when you click on a photo, save it immediately and view it on the phone display. But it is common to see several changes in the way an object is in reality. Perhaps the size decreases due to the type of lens used, perhaps there are grains in the photo due to poor image processing, and finally, perhaps the colors seem too saturated or too dull. The latter happens because there are different standards that each component follows, of course, apart from the quality of the lenses, which is another topic for another day.
Now what Oppo is doing here is giving a uniform standard to all these components. The DCI-P3 is a color space that encompasses a wide range of colors, some of which are strikingly present over other RGB color spaces. This color range is present in high-quality cameras, some premium TVs, and the displays of expensive smartphones or tablets. Not only this color space, but Oppo is also aiming for high-quality 10-bit color reproduction on all of its components, which includes the camera, memory and display. The 10 bits on the Oppo Find X3 will be different from other smartphones, the company says, because mostly the phones use 8-bit + 2-bit or 8-bit + FRC standards, which give a similar 10-bit output on an 8-bit panel. bit.
The Oppo Find X2, which launched earlier this year, uses the same 8-bit + 2-bit system for color decoding, but the company is switching to the original 10-bit system for color management. on its upcoming Find X3. For color calibration, the company said it will increase color accuracy with a lower JNCD, short for Just Noticeable Color Difference, ratio of 0.4. This would ensure that the different colors blend too well without being visible on the display. Here’s how the colors on the display change.
Oppo also said that as it is updating the color management system on the upcoming Find X3, it has had to upgrade the storage format to the 10-bit HEIF system for capture and storage. The company claims it had to rewrite the entire system due to the 8-bit system that HEIF was previously based on. There will also be a new Color Correction Solution 2.0 to allow you to correct the colors in the accessibility settings.
Since the color management system on three components: camera, memory and display will be the same, the DCI-P3 gamut together with the 10-bit color system will be maintained throughout the color information relay on Find X3, making it one of the best devices to display digital colors. Although this technology may be limited to the Oppo device just because no other device offers this type of color management system. So when you transfer a photo to other devices which don’t support 10-bit system, the colors on the photo will look different.
The Oppo Find X3 is expected to arrive next year as a successor to the Find X2, however, a launch date is not yet available. Oppo will share more details later.
