OnePlus partners with Nokia for OZO Audio on OnePlus 8 Pro

OnePlus just announced its all-new OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones at an online event. Both smartphones pack flagship specifications and right after the event, Nokia has announced that OnePlus has collaborated with them to use the proprietary OZO Audio technology on OnePlus 8 Pro.

OnePlus 8 Pro packs in 3 OZO Audio features – Audio 3D, Audio Zoom and Audio Windscreen that helps to capture “true-to-life audio” in the highest quality in videos. Audio Windscreen on the OnePlus Pro largely reduces the wind distortion and the 3D Audio lets users capture natural, spatial sound recordings.

Flagship smartphones launched recently feature Audio Zoom in videos and OnePlus 8 Pro also packs the same OZO Audio feature. While shooting videos on the OnePlus 8 Pro, users can make use of this feature that dynamically identifies and amplifies sounds to correspond with zoom and magnification.

In case you missed, Nokia OZO Audio is utilised on the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom alongside a range of Nokia smartphones.

Commenting on this, Jimmy Zhu, Product Manager, OnePlus, said:

Audio quality is one the key requirements for smartphone users when selecting a phone. By integrating Nokia’s OZO Audio in our latest flagship phone, OnePlus 8 Pro, we can ensure our users have great spatial audio experience also in windy weather conditions and when zooming video.

Jyri Huopaniemi, Head of Technology Licensing, Nokia Technologies, said:

We are thrilled to enable OnePlus’ latest smartphone model to capture and record immersive, high-quality sound with OZO Audio, enabling their customers to experience vivid, dynamic recordings. This is yet another testament to our leadership as a licensor of advanced technologies for smartphone and camera manufacturers.
