OPPO introduces Hyper Boost Smartphone Acceleration Technology

OPPO Mobile has introduced OPPO Hyper Boost, its full-scenario, system-level performance boost engine at an event in Shanghai, China yesterday. Developed extensively over the year, this promises improvements to smartphone’s power consumption and performance by optimizing system-level resource allocation, says that company.

Hyper Boost works by enabling real-time “two-way dialogs” between applications and system resources. After having recognized the various scenarios and user behaviors from different applications and game programs, Hyper Boost comprehensively optimizes the allocation of resources across the system to specific needs. This helps ensure better utilization of hardware resources, faster response speed of applications and game programs, and smoother operation of the overall system.

Consisting of three parts, Hyper Boost offers comprehensive acceleration for smartphones at three levels: system, game, and application.

  • System engine: Hyper Boost delivers system-level optimization across the Qualcomm and MediaTek platforms. The system engine provides over 50 solutions for optimizing the utilization of the underlying hardware resources against 20-plus software scenarios and 20-plus software behaviors, ensuring that users have a smooth and stable experience in almost every common scenario. This optimization helps general applications achieve up to 31.91% shorter loading time.
  • Game engine: One of the smartphone manufacturers to first work with Tencent, Netease and game engines such as Unreal, Unity and Cocos, OPPO is well-equipped to implement underlying optimization on the Top 100 mobile games. This game engine provides optimization for 11 of the most popular mobile games on the market, such as the “Honor of Kings” and “PUBG”. Its polymorphic network acceleration technology can intelligently distribute the traffic between the cellular and Wi-Fi data network channels. This optimization reduces the overall network latency to offer players a more relaxing and smooth gaming experience.
  • Application engine: Platform-level applications including WeChat, Mobile Taobao, and Mobile QQ have been among the first applications that Hyper Boost targets for optimization. The optimization provides dramatic acceleration in 39 common usage scenarios for users of these heavily used applications.

With close collaboration with various partners – OPPO combined the optimization engines with devices, chip platforms, applications across the industry chain – Hyper Boost provides a type of underlying optimization that promises fully elevated user experience for Android smartphones.

The R17 series will be fully equipped with OPPO Hyper Boost, and more models will be added later.

Commenting on the launch, Ryan Chen, Head of the Software Research Center of the OPPO Research Institute, said:

Our journey toward improving the system performance of smartphones dates back to 2015. Today we are proud to see the launch of OPPO Hyper Boost, the result of constant improvements and optimizations. Its ability to optimize resource allocation on Android systems helps overcome the power consumption and performance challenges when smartphones are running heavy-load applications. This cutting-edge technology has demonstrated our industry-leading strength in technical innovation and our commitment to bringing the best experience to our users.
