Hands-on review: The new OPPO Reno6 Pro 5G

Oppo Reno6

OPPO ushers in the latest Reno Series, in particular the Reno6 Pro 5G. The smartphone comes with numerous enhancements including Bokeh Flare Portrait Video, providing a cinematic portrait effect in real-time, improved productivity and all-round performance in a compact and lightweight design.

Let’s take a closer look at the design and features in our hands-on review.

Design and Display

The Reno6 Pro 5G is a slim 7.99mm device that weighs 188g and is very comfortable to hold. The Reno6 Pro 5G inherits OPPO’s Reno Glow design, featuring two new colours – Arctic Blue and Lunar Grey.

While Arctic Blue features an improved OPPO Reno Glow effect, Lunar Grey highlights a gleaming, transparent, and pure metallic silver finish.


The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G mobile platform with a Kryo 585 CPU, operating at up to 3.2GHz.

The Reno6 Pro 5G also has 12GB of RAM, as well as OPPO’s self-developed RAM expansion technology. Some of the available ROM storage can be converted to RAM space when the feature is turned on. In addition, the Reno6 Pro 5G’s original 12GB of RAM may be augmented with an extra 3GB/5GB/7GB of memory as needed, allowing it to function smoothly even when multiple apps are running simultaneously.

The Reno6 Pro 5G has two sensors on the front and back sides of the phone which detect ambient light to enable 360-degree light sensing. Consequently, auto-brightness accuracy has significantly increased, ensuring that the viewing experience is as comfortable as possible.

The smartphone also has a large 4500mAh battery and 65W SuperVOOC 2.0, which can charge to 100 per cent in only 31 minutes, in addition to a slew of power-saving technologies.


The Reno6 Pro 5G has a 50MP AI quad-camera matrix on the back, a 32MP selfie camera at the front, a Sony IMX766 sensor, and OPPO’s AI capabilities. As a result, one can effortlessly shoot professional-looking portrait films with the new Bokeh Flare Portrait Video, which adds a DSLR-like cinematic bokeh flare effect to portrait movies with improved, AI highlight video and flash snapshot capabilities.

The powerful image sensor behind the primary camera – Sony IMX766 – is what sets it apart.

DOL-HDR (IMX766) technology uses a quasi-simultaneous approach to capture both long and short exposures of the same image in a fraction of the time. As a result, one can capture both shots almost simultaneously, reducing the ghosting and motion blur observed in standard HDR images. In addition, real-time previews of HDR images are also available on the Reno6 Pro 5G display.

The Bokeh Flare Portrait Video gives videos a cinematic bokeh effect. This function helps detect ambient light automatically and adjust video settings accordingly. AI highlight video creates more transparent, brighter, and vividly coloured portrait films, whether filming at night or with intense lighting during the day.

The focus tracking function automatically tracks focus on faces, people, pets, and other popular video topics.


The smartphone delivers a realistic pro-gaming sound and listening experience. All status bars, gestures, buttons, floating windows, and alerts are disabled when gamer mode is enabled, ensuring total immersion in the virtual environment.

A co-created functionality for PUBG mobile game situations has also been added in the Reno6 Pro 5G. You can momentarily exit the game, respond to messages, or use other applications, while still keeping an eye on the countdown progress of the plane’s launch via a little floating bubble with a quick return bubble co-customised with PUBG Mobile. Then, when you’re ready to return to the action, or the parachute leaping is about to begin, click on the quick return bubble, and you will be back on the gaming ground in no time.

Another exciting Reno6 Pro 5G feature is the game filter, which applies real-time filters on game scenes in various styles.

With some new features, the OPPO Reno6 Pro 5G sets itself apart from the rest. We believe it’s a great smartphone for people who are looking for camera and design alongside rapid charging and high performance.

The Reno6 Pro 5G is available to pre-order now and purchase on September 15th, 2021 across OPPO’s regional websites and retail partner stores in the UAE and lower Gulf at a recommended retail price of Dhs2,999.
