realme GT Neo3 incorporates Pixelworks technology for superior mobile gaming and cutting-edge visual quality benefits

realme’s first smartphone powered by Pixelworks delivers stunning visual quality and Ultra-smooth gaming experience

SHANGHAI, March 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a leading provider of innovative video processing and display solutions, and realme, the fastest growing smartphone brand, today announced Now that the new realme GT Neo3 smartphone integrates the advanced Pixelworks X5 series visual processor to extend users’ visual enjoyment with always smooth gaming experience. In line with the spirit of its “Dare to Leap” brand, realme enhances the competitive edge of its smartphones by introducing several cutting-edge technologies that enhance unparalleled performance and deliver outstanding user experiences to consumers.

realme GT Neo3 is one of the first smartphones powered by Dimensity 8100. Manufactured using TSMC’s N5 (5nm) process technology, MediaTek’s Dimensity 8100 processor features 8-core CPUs, 6-core GPUs cores and AI processors – collectively representing a new dimension as a flagship 5G mobile platform and earning an excellent AnTuTu Benchmark score of over 820,000 points. The realme GT Neo3 is also the world’s first smartphone to feature industry-leading 150W “UltraDart” fast charging, which was unveiled at MWC 2022 and enables 50% charging in just five minutes. In addition to powerful hardware and ultra-fast charging technology, the smartphone incorporates outstanding display performance.

The realme GT Neo3 smartphone features a 6.7-inch OLED display with a diamond pixel arrangement. The display panel supports 10-bit color depth and up to 120Hz refresh rate, with a resolution of 2412 x 1080 pixels. The advanced Pixelworks X5 series visual processor provides the realme GT Neo3 smartphone with authentic image quality and enables extended play of ultra-smooth mobile games with the following visual display attributes:

MotionEngine® Technology – Pixelworks’ patented MotionEngine® technology increases the frame rate of game content to 120Hz while preserving the original artistic intent to ensure natural, smooth motion quality. This advanced processing helps eliminate stutter and artifacts caused by frame rate mismatches, dramatically improving image quality in videos and games. Additionally, Pixelworks’ distributed processing offloads the workload from the GPU to reduce overall system power consumption, which in turn prevents overheating and extends gameplay on mobile devices. The solution also features a frame rate enhancement mode that has been uniquely optimized for several popular mobile games, including King of Glory, Genshin Impact, game for peace and League of Legends.

Absolute color accuracy – Every realme GT Neo3 smartphone is factory-calibrated with Pixelworks’ patented, high-efficiency calibration technology, producing an average Delta E value (a gauge of color accuracy, the lower the better) less than 1, which means that the human eye cannot detect any deviation from perfect color reproduction.

Adaptive Ambient Color Correction – Leveraging the 3D LUT method, Pixelworks visual processing performs advanced color grading, including gamma value adjustment, gamut modification, and error tracking. This calibration technology also provides dynamic correction of nonlinear attributes, interference colors, hue, saturation, and lightness. Full management of these attributes at a very fine level produces accurate and true on-screen colors that are as vivid as human eyes detect in “3D space”, regardless of ambient lighting conditions.

Professional brightness calibration – Industry-leading brightness calibration achieves superior color accuracy in varying lighting conditions, perfectly aligned with people’s visual perception. By ensuring that the screen’s gamma value is always at 2.2 (the best standard tested by image and video processing professionals), Pixelworks technology ensures the most realistic experience for human eyes. Even in low light, the solution adapts the gamma curve to compensate for the viewing environment to ensure the consistent color appearance of the content displayed by the screen.

“As an emerging brand loved by many young people, the ‘Dare to Jump’ spirit is deeply embodied in realme’s DNA. Smartphones are used as the main display device throughout our daily lives, and the flexibility to provide optimized content for various communication and entertainment applications is becoming increasingly important,” said Chase Xu, vice president of realme. “We aim to satisfy consumers by providing products with new technologies and outstanding performance to rational prices.
