STMicroelectronics: Advanced Sensors from STMicroelectronics Make Pictures Better on OnePlus 2 Phone

Shenzhen, China, September 8, 2015 - STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM)
, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronics applications, today announced that its advanced motion and
proximity sensors have been integrated in the OnePlus 2, the newest
smartphone from a leading Chinese mobile maker.

The 2015 flagship model, OnePlus 2, relies on ST sensors for its superior
camera system performance that includes an ultra-fast 0.2s "human-eye" -grade
focus time and advanced optical anti-shake technology that delivers a 20%
improvement in effective image resolution, as well as a 55% reduction in
power consumption compared with standard optical anti-shake mobile-camera
systems.

ST's L2G2IS gyroscope powers the optical image stabilization (OIS) in the
OnePlus 2, improving sharpness in low-light pictures and removing shake from
mobile videos. The two-axis MEMS gyro integrates a special sensing element
that provides the measured angular rate to the camera through a digital
interface.

Offering unprecedented accuracy and reliability in calculating the distance
between the smartphone and the object, ST's VL6180 proximity sensor enhances
the camera's auto-focus performance in the OnePlus 2. Housed in a simple
compact package, the VL6180 uses ST's innovative FlightSense(TM)
optical-sensing technology to accelerate auto-focus time and improve picture
quality, especially in macro mode and low-ambient-light environments.

Enabling the 360-degree camera feature and improving gesture control and
mobile-gaming experience for OnePlus 2 users, ST also provides a sensor
system-in-package (LSM330) consisting of a 3D digital accelerometer with two
programmable embedded state machines and a 3D digital gyroscope. The sensor
combo has a selectable full-scale acceleration range up to ±16 g and an
angular-rate range up to ±2000 dps.

"The increasing penetration of advanced sensor-based features in smartphones
at all price points drives the demand for MEMS and Sensor devices in
fast-developing markets, like China's," said Collins Wu, Director of Analog,
MEMS and Sensors Group, Greater China and South Asia Region,
STMicroelectronics.

"Successful cooperation with innovative local smartphone makers like OnePlus
confirms the strengths of ST's IoT portfolio and our enabling role in
bringing augmented mobile experiences to users worldwide."

"Working with innovative and technology-driven global players such as ST, the
world's leading supplier of MEMS and Time-of-Flight ranging sensors for
consumer and mobile applications, has enabled us to deliver a
high-performance smartphone that satisfies the expectations of OnePlus
customers worldwide," said Oliver Zhang, Product Director of OnePlus.
