Premium Visual Processing delivers stunning image quality and superb gaming experience for OnePlus users
SHANGHAI, April 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a leading provider of innovative video and display processing solutions, today announced that the newly launched OnePlus Ace smartphone includes the Pixelworks X5 Pro Visual Processor. Leveraging Pixelworks’ patented MotionEngine® technology, highly efficient color and brightness calibration, and environment-adaptive color correction solution, the OnePlus Ace smartphone offers consumers ultra-smooth motion quality, consistent color accuracy, and eye comfort for an exceptional viewing experience.
In early 2022, the OnePlus 10 Pro was recognized by the market for its sleek design and powerful performance configuration. The device’s designation as the official phone for the 2022 Peace Elite Pro League and 2022 League of Legends Professional League also served to reinforce OnePlus’ leading market position for mobile devices in esports tournaments. Building on that momentum, the new OnePlus Ace takes performance to the next level with advanced advanced technologies.
The OnePlus Ace smartphone features a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 2412 x 1080 pixels and supports refresh rates up to 120 Hz. The smartphone is based on the latest Dimensity 8100 MAX flagship Light 5G MediaTek’s mobile platform, which leverages TSMC’s N5 (5nm) processor technology, dramatically improves gaming performance and power efficiency over previous-generation Dimensity chips, according to metrics released by MediaTek. In terms of battery and charging, the OnePlus Ace packs a 4,500mAh battery and boasts an incredible 150W Super Flash Charge that can power the smartphone in just a fraction of the time. Additionally, the OnePlus Ace utilizes a number of advanced visual processing solutions from Pixelworks to further enhance and achieve the device’s exceptional display capabilities.
Pixelworks technology brings significant visual display benefits to OnePlus Ace smartphones, including:
MotionEngine® technology – Pixelworks patented MotionEngine® technology boosts the frame rate of game content to 120Hz while maintaining the original artistic intent to ensure natural and fluid motion quality and eliminate judder and artifacts caused by frame rate mismatch. In addition, Pixelworks’ distributed processing offloads the GPU workload to reduce overall system power consumption, preventing overheating and prolonging mobile gaming fun. This feature has been adjusted to provide optimal visual performance for several popular mobile games including Genshin Impact, king of gloryGame for Peace, QQ Speed and League of Legends.
Absolute color accuracy – Every OnePlus Ace smartphone is factory calibrated using Pixelworks’ patented and highly efficient calibration technology, which produces an average Delta E value (an indicator used to measure color accuracy, the lower the better) of less than 1, meaning that the human eye cannot discern any deviation from perfect color rendering.
Professional brightness calibration – By ensuring the display’s gamma value is always 2.2 (best standard tested by image and video processing professionals), Pixelworks technology guarantees the most lifelike experience for the human eye. Even in low light conditions, the solution adjusts the gamma curve to compensate for the viewing environment to ensure consistent color representation of the content displayed on the screen.
Adaptive Ambient Color Correction – Using the 3D LUT method, Pixelworks visual processing technology performs advanced color calibration, including gamma adjustment, color gamut change, and defect tracking. This calibration technology also provides dynamic correction of non-linear attributes, interference colors, hue, saturation and lightness. The comprehensive management of these attributes at a very precise level produces sophisticated and authentic colors on the screen that are as vivid as the human eye perceives them in “3D space”, regardless of the surrounding lighting conditions.
