    DETAILED DESCRIPTION



    [0014] To illustrate objectives, technical solutions, and advantages embodied by the embodiments of the present disclosure more clearly, the following further describes the present disclosure in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. It is evident that the embodiments described herein constitute merely some rather than all of the embodiments of the disclosure, and that those of ordinary skill in the art will be able to derive other embodiments based on these embodiments without making inventive efforts, which all such derived embodiments shall all fall in the protection scope of the disclosure, as defined by the appended claims.

    [0015] The terms "first", "second", and "third" used in the specification, the claims, and the accompany drawings of the present disclosure are used for distinguishing between different objects rather than describing a particular order. The terms "include", "comprise", and "have" as well as variations thereof are intended to cover non-exclusive inclusion. For example, a process, method, system, product, or apparatus including a series of steps or units is not limited to the listed steps or units, it can optionally include other steps or units that are not listed; alternatively, other steps or units inherent to the process, method, product, or device can be included either.

    [0016] When a user slides a screen through a touch screen, the content of the screen will be updated. The process of updating the content of the screen may include: a system process receives a sliding operation of the user and sends a sliding operation message to a corresponding application process; the application process redraws window contents according to the sliding operation message, and then the redrawn window content is sent to an interface delivery process; the interface delivery process triggers screen refresh, and the redrawn window contents is output to the screen. During the screen refresh, a central processing unit (CPU) needs to be switched from a low power consumption mode to a high performance mode to respond to a sliding operation of the user. It may take hundreds of milliseconds from acquiring a sliding operation to improving performance of the CPU. This leads to a more pronounced hysteresis of the screen display relative to the sliding operation.

    [0017] In order to speed up the response speed to the sliding operation on the touch screen, a touch screen acceleration technology is mainly used. Once a touch operation of the user on the screen is detected, the frequency of a CPU of the system is immediately increased, thereby increasing the response speed of the system. However, the above method cannot distinguish a click operation and a sliding operation of the user, therefore, the frequency of the CPU of the system will increase when the user clicks on the screen, resulting in loss of power consumption of the system.

    [0018] Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a method for sliding response acceleration. As illustrated in FIG. 1, the method includes the following operations.

    [0019] At block 101, a sliding operation of a user on a touch screen is monitored.

    [0020] In this embodiment, the user can slide the screen through the touch screen, that is, the sliding operation of the user on the touch screen can be monitored through a touch sensor of a terminal device.

    [0021] At block 102, a first sliding distance of the sliding operation is determined.

    [0022] In this embodiment, when the user performs the sliding operation on the touch screen, a position coordinate of a finger of the user on the touch screen can be obtained in real time, and the first sliding distance of the sliding operation can be determined according to a distance between the position coordinate and an initial position coordinate.

    [0023] At block 103, a sliding acceleration strategy is launched when the first sliding distance exceeds a first preset distance, where the sliding acceleration strategy includes improving performance of a CPU.

    [0024] In this embodiment, a sliding acceleration initiation distance may be set in advance as the first preset distance. The size of the first preset distance is theoretically as small as possible to meet the purpose of quickly responding to the sliding operation of the user. The size of the first preset distance can be determined through experiments, and numerical value representations for the size are not particularly limited.

    [0025] When the finger of the user slides on the touch screen, if the first sliding distance exceeds the first preset distance, the sliding acceleration strategy is launched. The sliding acceleration strategy may include improving the performance of the CPU, for example, increasing the frequency of the CPU, increasing the number of CPU cores, or the like.

    [0026] As one implementation, launching the sliding acceleration strategy is achieved as follows. A difference between the first sliding distance and the first preset distance is determined. A target sliding acceleration strategy corresponding to the difference is selected.

    [0027] In an optional implementation, a corresponding relationship between different sliding acceleration strategies and distance ranges may be set in advance. For example, the distance ranges from small to large, and the level of the sliding acceleration strategy also goes from low to high to distinguish slow sliding operations and fast sliding operations of the user. When the first sliding distance exceeds the first preset distance, the difference between the first sliding distance and the first preset distance is calculated, so that the target acceleration strategy can be selected according to a distance range corresponding to the difference.

    [0028] As one implementation, after the sliding acceleration strategy is launched, the sliding acceleration strategy will be ended once the finger of the user leaves the touch screen. Specifically, whether the finger of the user leaves the touch screen is monitored; the sliding acceleration strategy will be ended once the finger of the user leaves the touch screen.

    [0029] In this embodiment, by determining the first sliding distance of the sliding operation of the user on the touch screen, and launching the sliding acceleration strategy when the first sliding distance exceeds the first preset distance, where the sliding acceleration strategy includes improving the performance of the CPU, it is possible to avoid improving performance of the CPU for any touch operation of the user, and power loss of a system can be reduced.

    [0030] FIG. 2 is a schematic flow chart illustrating a method for sliding response acceleration according to a second embodiment of the present disclosure. As illustrated in FIG. 2, the method includes the following operations.

    [0031] At block 201, a sliding operation of a user on a touch screen is monitored.

    [0032] At block 202, a first sliding distance of the sliding operation is determined.

    [0033] At block 203, a sliding acceleration strategy is launched when the first sliding distance exceeds a first preset distance.

    [0034] At block 204, a timer is started.

    [0035] At block 205, determine whether the timing of the timer exceeds a first preset time period and whether a position coordinate of a finger of the user on the touch screen is continuously changed.

    [0036] At block 206, advance to operations at block 212 if the timing of the timer exceeds the first preset time period and the position coordinate of the finger of the user on the touch screen is not continuously changed.

    [0037] In this embodiment, a timeout period for the sliding acceleration strategy can be set as the first preset time. When the timing of the timer exceeds the first preset time period and the user is not performing a continuous sliding operation, the sliding acceleration strategy will be ended.

    [0038] As one implementation, whether the finger of the user is continuously sliding on the touch screen can be determined by determining whether the position coordinate of the finger of the user on the touch screen is continuously changed. For example, a flag can be set to indicate whether the finger of the user is continuously sliding on the touch screen. For example, the position coordinate of the finger of the user on the touch screen is monitored in real time and compared with a position coordinate of an adjacent time. When the position coordinate of the finger of the user and the position coordinate of the adjacent time are different, the flag is set to indicate that the finger of the user is continuously sliding on the touch screen. When the position coordinate of the finger of the user and the position coordinate of the adjacent time are the same, the flag is reset to indicate that the finger of the user is not continuously sliding on the touch screen. Therefore, whether the finger of the user is continuously sliding on the touch screen can be determined based on a value of the flag.

    [0039] Whether execution of the sliding acceleration strategy exceeds the first preset time period can be determined according to the timing of the timer, and whether the finger of the user is continuously sliding on the touch screen can be determined by monitoring the value of the flag. Advance to operations at block 212 to terminate the sliding acceleration strategy when the timing of the timer exceeds the timeout time and the position coordinate of the finger of the user on the touch screen is not continuously changed.

    [0040] At block 207, a second sliding distance of the finger of the user within a second preset time period is acquired when the timing of the timer exceeds the first preset time period and the position coordinate of the finger of the user on the touch screen is continuously changed.

    [0041] At 208, determine whether the second sliding distance exceeds a second preset distance, and advance to operations at block 212 if the second sliding distance does not exceed the second preset distance.

    [0042] If the timing of the timer exceeds the first preset time period and the finger of the user is continuously sliding on the touch screen, a continuous sliding detection function is activated in response to a continuous sliding operation of the user.

    [0043] As one implementation, a detection period of the continuous sliding detection function can be set as the second preset time. If the second sliding distance exceeds the second preset distance within the second preset time, the sliding acceleration strategy is continued, and returns to operations at block 204 to start the timer to re-timing; otherwise, advance to operations at block 212 to terminate the sliding acceleration strategy, where the second sliding distance may be greater than the first sliding distance for responding to the continuous sliding operation.

    [0044] At block 209, a temperature of the CPU is monitored.

    [0045] At block 210, the performance of the CPU is reduced when the temperature of the CPU is higher than a first preset temperature and lower than a second preset temperature.

    [0046] At block 211, advance to operations at block 212 when the temperature of the CPU is higher than the second preset temperature.

    [0047] In this embodiment, the sliding acceleration strategy is launched at block 203, and then the temperature of the CPU is monitored at block 209. The performance of the CPU is reduced when the temperature of the CPU is higher than the first preset temperature and lower than the second preset temperature. Advance to operations at block 212 to terminate the sliding acceleration strategy when the temperature of the CPU is higher than the second preset temperature, where the first preset temperature and the second preset temperature may be set according to a temperature range that the CPU can withstand, thereby achieving reasonable protection of the CPU.

    [0048] At block 212, terminate the sliding acceleration strategy.

    [0049] Embodiments of the present disclosure further provide a device for sliding response acceleration. As illustrated in FIG. 3, the device includes a first monitoring unit 301, a first determining unit 302, and a first starting unit 303.

    [0051] As one implementation, after the first starting unit 303 launches the sliding acceleration strategy, whether a duration of execution of the sliding acceleration strategy is timed out can be detected. If the timeout occurs and an operation of the user on the touch screen is not a continuous sliding operation, the sliding acceleration strategy will be ended. On the basis of the device illustrated in FIG. 3, as illustrated in FIG. 4, the device further includes a second starting unit 304, a first judging unit 305, and a terminating unit 306.

    [0055] As one implementation, if the timing of the timer exceeds the first preset time period and the operation of the user on the touch screen is a continuous sliding operation, the continuous sliding detection function will be activated.

As illustrated in FIG. 6, the device further includes a second monitoring unit 309 and a processing unit 310.

    [0060] The second monitoring unit 309 is configured to monitor the temperature of the CPU.

    [0065] The second determining unit 3031 is configured to determine a difference between the first sliding distance and the first preset distance. The selecting unit 3032 is configured to select a target sliding acceleration strategy corresponding to the difference.

    [0066] Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a terminal device. As illustrated in FIG. 9, the terminal device includes a processor 901 and a memory 902.

When the touch panel 1031 detects a touch operation on or near the touch panel 1031, the touch operation is transmitted to the processor 1080 to determine the type of a touch event, and then the processor 1080 provides a corresponding visual output on the display panel 1041 according to the type of the touch event. Although the touch panel 1031 and the display panel 1041 are illustrated as two separate components in FIG. 10 to realize the input and output functions of the mobile phone, in some embodiments, the touch panel 1031 may be integrated with the display panel 1041 to implement the input and output functions of the mobile phone.

    [0080] The mobile phone may also include at least one sensor 1050, such as a light sensor, a motion sensor, and other sensors. In one implementation, the light sensor may include an ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor, among which the ambient light sensor may adjust the brightness of the display panel 1041 according to ambient lights, and the proximity sensor may turn off the display panel 1041 and/or backlight when the mobile phone reaches nearby the ear. As a kind of motion sensor, the accelerometer sensor can detect the magnitude of acceleration in all directions (typically three axes) and when the mobile phone is stationary, the accelerometer sensor can detect the magnitude and direction of gravity; the accelerometer sensor can also identify mobile-phone gestures related applications (such as vertical and horizontal screen switch, related games, magnetometer attitude calibration), or the accelerometer sensor can be used for vibration-recognition related functions (such as a pedometer, percussion) and so on. The mobile phone can also be equipped with a gyroscope, a barometer, a hygrometer, a thermometer, and an infrared sensor and other sensors, and it will not be repeated herein.

    [0081] The audio circuit 1060, a speaker 1061, a microphone 1062 may provide an audio interface between the user and the mobile phone. The audio circuit 1060 may convert the received audio data into electrical signals and transfer the electrical signals to the speaker 1061; thereafter the speaker 1061 converts the electrical signals into sound signals to output. On the other hand, the microphone 1062 converts the received sound signals into electrical signals, which will be received and converted into audio data by the audio circuit 1060 to output. The audio data is then processed and transmitted by the processor 1080 via the RF circuit 1010 to another mobile phone for example, or, the audio data is output to the memory 1020 for further processing.

    [0082] Wi-Fi belongs to a short-range wireless transmission technology. With aid of the Wi-Fi module 1070, the mobile phone may assist the user in E-mail receiving and sending, webpage browsing, access to streaming media and the like. Wi-Fi provides users with wireless broadband Internet access. Although the Wi-Fi module 1070 is illustrated in FIG. 10, it should be understood that the Wi-Fi module 1070 is not essential to the mobile phone and can be omitted according to actual needs without departing from the essential nature of the present disclosure.

    [0083] The processor 1080 is a control center of the mobile phone. It uses various interfaces and lines to connect various parts of the whole mobile phone, runs or executes software programs and/or modules stored in the memory 1020, and calls data stored in the memory 1020 to perform various functions of the mobile phone and process data, thereby monitoring the mobile phone. In at least one implementation, the processor 1080 may include one or more processing units; for example, the processor 1080 may integrate an application processor and a modem processor, where the application processor mainly handles the operating system, the user interface, the application programs, and so on, and the modem processor mainly processes wireless communication. It will be appreciated that the above-mentioned modem processor may not be integrated into the processor 1080.

    [0084] The mobile phone also includes the power supply 1090 (e.g., a battery) that supplies power to various components. For instance, the power supply 1090 may be logically connected to the processor 1080 via a power management system to enable management of charging, discharging, and power consumption through the power management system.

    [0085] Although not illustrated, the mobile phone may include a camera, a Bluetooth module, etc., and the disclosure will not elaborate herein.

    [0086] The methods of the foregoing embodiments can be realized based on the structure of the mobile phone. The sensor 1050 or the touch panel 1031 can be used as a device for acquiring a sliding distance. It should be noted that, in above embodiments of the device for accelerating response to sliding, each unit included is merely divided according to function logic, but it is not limited to the above division, as long as the corresponding function can be achieved. In addition, the specific names of each functional unit are only for convenience of distinguishing each other and are not used to limit the protection scope of the present disclosure.

    [0087] In addition, those of ordinary skill in the art may understand that implementing all or part of the operations in the foregoing method embodiments may be accomplished through programs to instruct the relevant hardware to complete, and the corresponding programs may be stored in a computer readable storage medium. The storage medium may be a read-only memory, Disk or compact disc (CD), and so on.
