A few months back, Vivo debuted its own V1 image processor in the Vivo X70 series, and now distant relative and rival OPPO is following suit. In this case, however, OPPO has the ambitious goal of surpassing Google when it comes to computation photography and AI-powered image processing.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 cameras found an ally in DxOMark

While the Galaxy Z Fold 3 had notable upgrades, like the S Pen support, it was also heavily criticized for its disappointing cameras. As if the 4MP under-display camera weren't bad enough, the main cameras on the phone's back haven't actually moved forward since the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Compared to the Galaxy S21 Ultra from earlier this year, that sounds like a downgrade, but at least DxOMark thinks it's not a complete loss, depending on which camera functions are important to you.
