Vivo runs on a self-developed image signal processor (ISP) chip that was recently leaked online. Soon after, Hu Baishan, executive vice president of the company, officially confirmed that the company was preparing to launch the Vivo V1 ISP chip.
Today, the Chinese company unveiled the first self-developed chip, the Vivo V1, an image signal processor. It has also been confirmed that the upcoming Vivo X70 series smart phones will be equipped with this new chip.
For this new Vivo V1 chip, a team of over 300 people worked for more than 24 months for Research & Development For this new Vivo V1 chip, a team of over 300 people worked for more than 24 months for Research & Development as well as the Chinese company had in-depth collaboration with Smartphone processor manufacturers. This is to assure that the Vivo V1 ISP runs smoothly without compromising the main processor.
The company claims that the new V1 chip offers high computing power, low latency and low power consumption. In addition to processing complex calculations at high speeds, it can also complete parallel processing of data such as GPU and DSP. However, the company adds that the Vivo V1 has a significant improvement in energy efficiency ratios compared to DSP and CPU.
Vivo has optimized data storage architecture and high-speed read and write circuits within the chip to maximize simultaneous processing capacity. It can achieve the equivalent of a 32MB large cache with on-chip storage.
The company claims that it will surpass the current flagship desktop processors when it comes to low latency live noise reduction and frame inclusion. The dedicated algorithm in Vivo V1 reduces the power consumption of the hardware circuit by about 50 percent when processing tasks using the same amount of calculations at higher speeds.
Working with the Vivo Zeiss team to overcome technical limitations such as process and yield, glass lenses can now offer high light transmission, ultra low dispersion and thermal stability. The AOA dynamic optical calibration process is used to adjust the sharpness reduction with lens thickness errors and lens eccentric errors.
The China-based company also introduced the SWC coating technology, which ensures that the reflected light is completely suppressed, and the reflection is reduced by at least 0.1%, which greatly improves the quality.
Vivo and Zeiss adjusted 262,144 parameters through 140 color card performance and 3D color mapping matrix algorithms to further refine color and saturation processing. As a result, the color accuracy ∆E is increased by about 15.5%, bringing in more natural colors.
As mentioned, the Vivo V1 ISP chip is set in the upcoming Vivo X70 series of smart phones, which will be officially launched in the Chinese market on September 9 at 19:30 local time. With the launch of China, the smartphone lineup is expected to launch globally.
