Demonstration on the example of Oppo Reno6 Pro 5G

Oppo held its annual developer conference in Shanghai. At the Oppo Developers Conference 2021 (ODC21), the company unveiled many new developments and showcased ray tracing technology on smartphones.

For many years, ray tracing has been used exclusively on powerful computers. This technology allows you to create the most realistic image in terms of lighting and reflections in virtual worlds.

Ray tracing debuted on gaming consoles with the release of the Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X / S in late 2020. It is expected to be used in smartphones very soon. Interestingly, Oppo showed how the technology works on the already released Oppo Reno6 Pro 5G smartphone, which is built on the not-so-productive MediaTek Dimensity 1200 mobile platform.

OPPO said its ray tracing technology is based on the Vulkan API and is part of ColorOS. The company also announced that its technology can be used not only in games but also in live wallpapers, image filters, augmented reality applications, and other scenarios.

Ray tracing on Oppo smartphones is expected to debut in 2022. Samsung has also confirmed that it will introduce new Exynos SoCs with an AMD GPU with ray tracing support. The first Samsung smartphones to support this technology will be the Galaxy S22.
