On the first day of ongoing Inno Day, Oppo unveiled a bunch of new innovations. This includes a new in-house chip, second-gen AR glasses, and the company’s first smart family health monitoring devices. In this article, we will look at the MariSilicon Y, Air Glass 2, and Oppo OHealth H1, all announced on the first day of Inno Day (2022).
Oppo OHealth H1
We are going to start off with the OHealth H1, which is a first of kinds device in Oppo’s otherwise diverse portfolio. This is among the first innovation to come out of Oppo Health Lab, established last year. Oppo has even set up a new OHealth sub-brand which makes us believe we will see a lot more Health Lab products in the future.
Coming to the H1 launched on Inno Day (2022), it comes with six advanced tracking features: heart rate, ECG, blood oxygen (SpO2), auscultation, sleep, body temperature, and cardiopulmonary. Oppo even claims OHealth H1’s data collection to be in line with clinical-grade medical equipment like a stethoscope and a single-lead ECG.
This bold claim seems to come from Omron, which is a well-known Japanese medical device. While it’s not clear, we believe Oppo and Omron have collaborated in either or both the precision sensors and the new Sense algorithm.
Moving on, Oppo OHealth H1 stores users’ health data on the company’s health cloud for long-term preventive healthcare. The company believes the H1 will come in handy in telemedicine, AI-assisted diagnosis, and health monitoring and notifications.

Oppo MariSilicon Y chip
Oppo also took the stage at the Inno Day 2022 to announce the MariSilicon Y. It is the company’s second-only in-house chip — the first one being 2021’s MariSilicon X NPU. While the MariSilicon X dealt with image processing, the new Y chip is more concerned with wireless communication. In fact, it is a Bluetooth SoC built on a new N6RF process. This results in 66% less power consumption and a 50% increase in bandwidth, compared to the mainstream BT chips.
The new MariSilicon Y is capable of lossless wireless audio transmission at 24 bits / 192kHz, which Oppo says is the first for the industry. It supports smart adaptive code-rate ranging from 80Kbps to 10Mbps. In addition, the new chip has Smart Active Noise Reduction, Spatial Rendering, Ultra-low latency, Spatial Audio, and Smart Anti-Inference built into it.
Oppo Air Glass 2
Finally, the third major launch at Oppo Inno Day 2022 was the Air Glass 2. It is the successor to Oppo’s first “Assisted Reality” product launched on 2021’s Inno Day. While the first-gen Air Glass looked like a monocle straight out of Dragon Ball Z, its successor has a more realistic design.
Oppo Air Glass 2 looks more like mainstream glasses with a thicker side frame. It is still lightweight, though — weighing just 30 grams. The lens measures 1.3mm and uses a unique light diffractive waveguide technology. In addition, Air Glass 2 also has a single-pixel MicroLED screen with 3 million nits brightness.
Oppo Air Glass 2 packs the Snapdragon 4100 SoC and boasts battery life of up to 10.5 hours. In terms of features, it supports image correction, real-time translation, navigation, speech-to-text inscription, and more.
