Hands-on review: Reno8 Pro 5G

OPPO’s newly launched Reno8 Pro 5G, equipped with cutting-edge technology, promises smooth performance and an all-round flagship experience. We got the smartphone for a hands-on review, and here’s what it looks like.

Design and display

The Reno8 Pro 5G features a fresh new look – a streamlined unibody design with a glass back cover that eliminates the need for a standalone camera ‘bump’. As a result, the handset not only looks good but feels comfortable to hold as well. The Reno8 Pro 5G is the thinnest Reno series phone to date, measuring 7.34mm in thickness and weighing 183g.

The smartphone offers a smoother viewing experience, thanks to its 6.7–inch ultra-clear AMOLED display, 93.4 per cent screen-to-body ratio, support for one billion colors, and 120Hz refresh rate. Additionally, the display is HDR10+ certified.

Camera capabilities
Designed to be a portrait expert, especially with night-shooting capabilities, the Reno8 Pro 5G features a 50MP primary camera (Sony IMX766 sensor), 8MP wide-angle camera and 2MP macro camera. It has a 32MP front-facing camera (Sony IMX709).

The device is also equipped with the brand’s first self-developed imaging neural processing unit – MariSilicon X. Additionally, this is the first time 4K video recording has been available on a smartphone in this price range. Users can record crystal-clear portrait movies at night with 4K ultra night video, and portrait videos captured with strong backlight are enhanced with 4K ultra-HDR video.

Performance and battery
Powering the Reno8 Pro 5G is the MediaTek Dimensity 8100–Max. Built-on 5nm process, the octa-core SoC (processor) delivers powerful performance with lower power consumption. In addition, the handset features a storage space of 12GB RAM and 256GB ROM.

To help users enjoy its all-round flagship-level performance, the Reno8 Pro 5G delivers a faster and more reliable experience. With a 4500mAh battery and 80W SuperVOOC, it can charge 50 per cent in 11 minutes, and a five-minute charge is enough to provide two hours of mobile gaming. 

The battery life of the smartphone can be increased to 1,600 charge/discharge cycles, or about four years of average use, with the help of the Battery Health Engine.

Ultra-conductive cooling system
One of the impressive features in the Reno8 Pro 5G is its ultra-conductive cooling system. It has a series of advanced cooling materials and an expanded cooling area to improve the overall cooling performance of the phone. Among the new materials is ultra-conductive graphite, which has been put through a series of intensive processes to increase its thermal conductivity. So, whether the user is playing games or watching videos, the smartphone will continue to run smoothly without overheating.

The Reno8 5G is loaded with system-level gaming optimisations for mobile gamers. The Reno series is the first to enable PubG 90Hz refresh mode. To avoid making users wait while downloading, the background update feature enables game updates to be downloaded in the background. When the update is complete, a quick return button will hover on the screen, and the user can return immediately at that time.

The Reno8 Pro 5G is available in colours – glazed green and glazed black across OPPO’s regional websites and retail partner stores at a price of Dhs2,799.
