OPPO today has announced that it has successfully demoed world’s first 5G video call using 3D structured light technology. The demonstration reproduced a 3D portrait image on a remote receiver using portrait information collected structured-light 3D camera of an OPPO phone and 5G NR terminal prototypes from Qualcomm.
The company has utilized a customized OPPO R11s with the integrated structured light camera. It collected the color and 3D depth of the target object using RGB and the structured light camera of the phone. The information is transmitted from a 5G environment and was able to finally display the target object in a remote display screen.
With high speed (eMBB), large capacity (mMTC), and low-latency (URLLC), the 5G technology is a new start of mobile telecommunication industry. The Mobile internet is reducing the boundaries between the physical world and digital world, while 3D content will be a factor to further improve the immersive user experience. OPPO also mentioned that it is committed to providing innovative application by utilizing 3D structured light technology.
Earlier this year OPPO announced 5G pilot program with Qualcomm
Technologies, and it will be one of the first smartphone manufacturers to
launch 5G handsets in 2019. OPPO said that it will commercialize the application of 3D structured light technology in smartphones in approximately 6 months.
Bai Jian, the Director of the Hardware Research Center of OPPO Research Institute, said:
The success of the 5G video call utilizing 3D structure light technology demonstrates our innovation direction powered by the understanding of users’ need and cutting-edge technology. OPPO will commercialize the application of 3D structured light technology in smartphones and bring the groundbreaking technology to our customers in approximately 6 months.
