The Audio 3D and Audio Zoom capabilities are integrated into the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Edition, which contains three microphones in the device to enable full spatial audio capture. The features work with the native camera application, meaning no additional software installation is required.
“Nokia announced a patent license agreement with OPPO in November 2018. We are now excited to be deepening our relationship with one of China’s biggest consumer device brands. By integrating OZO Audio technologies, OPPO is demonstrating its commitment to helping consumers create immersive content and experiences through devices such as the OPPO Reno series. This collaboration between the Nokia OZO team and OPPO is a testament to that – allowing users to capture and share high-fidelity and true-to-life audio that matches the quality of the camera in their device,” says Paul Melin, VP of Technology Licensing at Nokia Technologies.
The OPPO Reno series is designed to provide great user experiences and augment the content users capture through the device. OZO Audio enhances this, providing true-to-life audio experiences that match the quality of the built-in camera. The Nokia OZO team worked with OPPO to optimize and fine-tune the OZO Audio algorithms based on the placement of the microphones in the OPPO device, and ensured the software integrated seamlessly with Reno’s ColorOS 6 Android-based user interface.
