Pixelworks Enables Powerful Display Performance on realme GT Neo 5 Smartphone

Pixelworks Visual Processor Delivers Extraordinary and Immersive Visual Experiences with High Frame Rate, High Clarity and High Color Accuracy

SHANGHAI, Feb. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a leading provider of innovative video and display processing solutions, and realme, one of the fastest growing smartphone brands, announced the newly launched realme GT Neo 5 smartphone incorporates Pixelworks X5 Plus visual processor. The partnership between the two brands aims to bring consumers a transcending video and gaming experience with authentic color reproduction, great clarity and ultra-smooth motion quality.

Built on Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. , the realme GT Neo 5 is powered by Pixelworks X5 Plus visual processor meanwhile being the brand's first smartphone to mass-produce 240W fast charging. The smartphone's display features a 6.74-inch 1.5K screen with a resolution of 2772 x1240 pixels while also supporting up to 144Hz refresh rate and 2160 Hz PWM dimming. The device's powerful hardware performance, ultra-fast charging as well as the high-quality display capability allow the realme GT Neo 5 to smartly allocate system resources during high-load applications.   

Pixelworks visual processor brings significant visual display benefits to realme GT Neo 5 smartphone, including:

MotionEngine® Technology – Pixelworks patented MotionEngine® (MEMC) technology uses an intelligent algorithm to boost native frame rate of video and game content to high frame rates of up to 120Hz. This advanced processing helps to eliminate judder caused by the mismatch of frame rates between content and display, significantly improving the image quality and motion smoothness of videos and games. Compared to running native high frame rate content, Pixelworks-enabled distributed processing offloads the GPU workload by reducing rendering pressure and lowering overall system power consumption when MEMC mode is on, which in turn prevents overheating of mobile devices. Users can enjoy the cinematic video quality enabled by this functionality on video Apps, including iQIYI, Tencent, Tencent Sport, Youku and BiliBili. For users who like playing games, the MEMC mode has also been adapted to more than 20 mobile games, including QQ Speed, League of Legends, King of Glory, CrossFire and Onmyoji Arena.

Adaptive HDR – Dynamically adjusts the tone mapping according to display brightness attributes and content to achieve high-precision HDR quality with improved color saturation, enhanced contrast and details of images, resulting in a truly immersive video experience. This function has been adapted to the same series of video Apps as the MEMC mode feature.

Multi-Brightness Color Calibration – Each realme GT Neo 5 smartphone is factory calibrated with Pixelworks' patented and high-efficiency calibration technology, producing an average Delta E value (an indicator of color accuracy) less than 1, which means no detectable deviation from perfect color reproduction. In addition, this technology ensures the display's gamma value is always at 2.2 (best standard tested by image and video processing professionals) in different color modes to achieve the most true-to-life experience for the human eyes when viewing the screen. Even in low brightness, this Pixelworks solution adapts the gamma curve to compensate for brightness to ensure the consistent color appearance of content displayed on the screen.

Ambient Adaptive Color Correction – Leveraging the 3D LUT method, Pixelworks visual processing technology conducts advanced color calibration, including the adjustment of gamma value, gamut alteration and error tracking. This calibration technology also provides the dynamic correction of nonlinear attributes, interference colors, hue, saturation and brightness. The comprehensive management of these attributes to a very precise level produces exacting and authentic colors on the screen that are as vivid as what human eyes detect in the '3D space', regardless of ambient lighting conditions.

"realme has impressed the crowd with its extraordinary new offering, the realme GT Neo 5 smartphone. The smartphone features powerful hardware performance and eye-catching technological innovations, again demonstrating our brand value of 'Dare to Leap'," said Chase Xu, Vice President of realme. "It is a pleasure to join hands with Pixelworks to enable more high-frame and high-quality video and gaming experiences for smartphone users.
