OPPO has announced it will be among the latest batch of device companies to support Google’s CameraX, the new Android Jetpack support library for camera app development.
Debuted yesterday, during a keynote at Google Developer Days China 2019 (GDD China 2019) in Shanghai, the capabilities powered by OPPO’s imaging technology and CameraX were demonstrated live through a Reno 10x Zoom handset. At the event, OPPO and Google also announced the full lineup of OPPO smartphones that will support the new solution.
Google’s CameraX, an Android solution which enables developers to leverage the camera experiences and features from a device’s native camera app, will be supported by a range of OPPO devices, including OPPO Reno 10x Zoom and future Reno devices. Through the integration of CameraX on OPPO smartphones, developers can now tap into OPPO’s leading imaging technologies by applying as little as two lines of code. Without the need for device-specific code, devices supporting CameraX will also enable developers to use OPPO’s cutting-edge HDR and Beauty capabilities to seamlessly improve their app experiences.
Kevin Cho, Managing Director OPPO New Zealand says the partnership is a nod to the company’s vision to be at the forefront of cutting-edge innovations in smartphone technology.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Google’s CameraX and enable developers worldwide to tap into our our leading imaging technologies for a more seamless experience in camera app development, while in turn creating better experiences for our Kiwi users that exceed expectations.
“We look forward to continuing to drive the development of the most innovative apps in the era of intelligent connectivity and explore more solutions in imaging technologies,” says Cho.
As an early adopter of CameraX, OPPO has opened its innovative imaging technologies to all developers, allowing them to better tailor their app experiences for OPPO users. At GDD China 2019, OPPO invited visitors to the OPPO booth to test the smartphones with and without CameraX through CameraX Basic, producing a dramatic boost in photo quality. Using the app, attendees were also able to take advantage of OPPO’s advanced camera features like Beauty Mode and HDR to capture outstanding, high-quality photos.
A pioneer in imaging technology, OPPO constantly innovates in the development of cutting-edge innovation for smartphone photography and related fields. By opening its camera capabilities through CameraX, OPPO aims to enable more third-party developers to leverage its leading camera technology to create more diverse applications and fulfill users’ needs for a professional, robust and convenient photography experience.
