Vivo launched its first ISP processor, the V1 to improve phone cameras
Vivo, like Google, has developed a processor to improve the cameras on its phones. The ISP is now official and is called V1.
The camera is an important aspect of a phone’s appeal, and manufacturers are aware of this. Vivo has historically predicted it and now takes an important step in that direction with the V1, its first processor for phones.
The chip is announced yesterday in China and is intended to be used in the company’s next high-end product, the V70 Series, which will be released soon.
Vivo V1 ISP will improve photos
When we talk about processors, we usually think of the CPUs in the phones, which are usually most recognized, however there are several more.
Among them are ISPs: The ISP is a component in your camera that determines how the photo transmits and appears on your phone’s screen. It converts compressed pictures from digital cameras into high-quality JPEG images so that they may be displayed on modern phones.
The V1 is a chip, an ISP, and the firm has acknowledged that more than 300 people have spent two years working on it.
Vivo’s aim was to design a processor that uses low energy, but still be able to make complex calculations with low latency.
Vivo has improved the data storage structure as well as the high-speed read and write circuits inside the chip to maximize parallel processing capacity. On-chip memory allows it to achieve a cache size of 32MB.
When it comes to low-latency real-time noise reduction and frame insertion, Vivo says that it outperforms current flagship desktop CPUs. The dedicated technique in Vivo V1 cuts the hardware circuit’s power consumption by around 50% when executing tasks with the same amount of calculation at fast speeds.
Vivo will keep its partnership with Zeiss
At the same time, Vivo has revealed that they’ve improved other elements of the cameras, especially optical quality, thanks to their long-term collaboration with Zeiss, which had previously given us technologies like T* Coating.
We expect to see most of these improvements in the Vivo V70 Series, which will be unveiled on September 9 in China and anticipated to be available throughout the world.
