OnePlus is joining in with more AI - getting Gemini Models

You can't turn around these days without seeing AI talked about in some mode or another.  I was just at a conference and I would estimate about 1/3rd of the topics were involving AI and automation.

I've been waiting for Google to bring about Gemini Nano, which it has on the 8 Pro, onto the Pixel 8.

Well, soon phones may also get Google's Gemini.  Now originally they had said Gemini Ultra Large, the 'top of the top' and was going to be the first on a phone, but OnePlus has since clarified this statement:

Entering the AI Phone Era: Gemini is Coming to OnePlus!

Hello friends, 

Earlier today, at Google Cloud Next '24 we announced our integration of Google's most powerful AI model, Gemini 1.0 and Gemini 1.5, into our devices. We also aim to be the first to launch features based on the Gemini platform on smartphones later this year. Unveiled today and launching later in 2024, Gemini on smartphones promises to completely change the way users interact with their devices.

We have already introduced multiple Generative AI models to over ten million users in China, allowed them to access AI Generated Content on the fly. Generative AI is a game-changer, and I believe we are well-placed to bring its benefits to users worldwide.

By collaborating with Google to integrate both Gemini and Google Cloud AI into smartphones, and by forming alliances with other industry pioneers for a variety of AI experiences, we are thrilled to broaden the scope of mobile AI innovations.

The Four key pillars for mobile AI

AI on mobile can bring endless opportunities, however we believe it must include the four key characteristics:

  • Effective resource utilization
  • Self-learning capabilities
  • Real-world perception
  • Empower user creativity

As a leading smartphone manufacturer we are commited to optimizing the blend of hardware, operating systems, and ecosystems to foster AI development. As such, we are already working with various partners to deliver groundbreaking AI experiences, the most recent example being our new and innovative AI Eraser.

Our first AI Feature for the global market

AI Eraser is driven by our AndesGPT LLM. It is among the first AI features launching globally to redefine mobile image editing. This feature allows users to effortlessly remove unwanted objects from images directly within their photo gallery. We have received great feedback from our beta testers who have praised the capablities of AI Eraser.

Additionally, we are also partnering with Google to integrate other Cloud AI products into upcoming releases. This will enable future OnePlus phones to leverage AI for news article summarization, audio summarization, and generating new social media content.

Pioneering AI

OPPO and OnePlus have a rich history of pioneering mobile technology. OPPO's innovative use of AI and computational mathematics in mobile photography and OnePlus's Trinity Engine, which enhances phone performance using AI, providing a smooth beyond belief experience, reflect our commitment to cutting-edge research and development.

Over the next three to five years, we plan to launch over one hundred AIGC experiences, prioritizing user needs to ensure intuitive products. I am curious to read how you envision AI shaping the future of smartphones? Do share your thoughts.
