OPPO recently launched its latest Reno8 series alongside a range of IoT (internet of things) products at Dubai’s indoor rainforest – The Green Planet Dubai.

The series includes three 5G models – the Reno8 Pro 5G, Reno8 5G and Reno8 Z 5G. In tandem, the brand also launched three new IoT products: the OPPO Pad Air, OPPO Band 2 and the OPPO Enco Buds2.

Ethan Xue, President of OPPO MEA said, “We are excited to announce the launch of our latest Reno8 Series and new line-up of exciting IoT products including the brilliant OPPO Pad Air, our first tablet which aims to create a smarter life and seamless cross-scenario experience for users across the region. At OPPO, we strive to provide our customers with an immaculate user experience, constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation and developing products that make people’s lives easier and more convenient. The Reno8 Series redefines the realms of mobile experience across performance, design, technology, and imaging, and we cannot wait to see how the market responds.”

Designed to be a portrait expert, the Reno8 Pro 5G is equipped with OPPO’s first self-developed imaging NPU, MariSilicon X, elevating the device to deliver a series of innovative camera features. The smartphone also features a streamlined unibody design, smooth performance, and an all-round experience through ColorOS 12.1.

Ultra-clear portraits
The Reno8 Pro 5G brings ultra-clear portrait photos and videos to all-new heights with its powerful hardware foundations.

The brand’s self-developed imaging NPU, MariSilicon X provides an immense level of dedicated computing power for the smartphone’s imaging features, while consuming less power. Built on a 6nm process technology and DSA architecture, MariSilicon X is able to deliver an 18 trillion operations per second of dedicated image processing power.

The smartphone also includes dual Sony flagship sensors in the form of the new generation IMX709 RGBW front camera sensor and the flagship IMX766 main camera sensor. It is also the first time that 4K video shooting has been brought to a smartphone at this price point – with 4K ultra night video, users can capture ultra-clear portrait videos at night, while 4K Ultra HDR Video optimises portrait videos taken in the presence of strong backlight. Both features can significantly improve image quality and colour expression in pictures, avoiding over-exposure in bright areas while retaining the maximum amount of detail in dark areas.

Streamlined unibody design
The smartphone features a streamlined unibody design, eliminating the standalone camera ‘bump’ commonly seen on other smartphones. It makes the phone comfortable to hold while preventing dust from getting trapped around the camera area.

On the front of the device, the Reno8 Pro 5G features a 6.7–inch ultra-clear AMOLED display with a 93.4 per cent screen-to-body ratio, support for one billion colours, and a 120Hz refresh rate.

Measuring just 7.34mm in thickness, and weighing just 183g, the Reno8 Pro 5G is the thinnest Reno series handset yet and will be available in two colour finishes – Glazed Green and Glazed Black.

Smooth performance
Powering the Reno8 Pro 5G’s smooth performance is the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX integrated 5G SoC. Built on the 5nm process, the octa-core SoC delivers more powerful performance with even lower power consumption. The Reno8 Pro 5G comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of ROM storage.

To help users enjoy its all-round performance for longer, the Reno8 Pro 5G delivers a faster, safer and more reliable experience. Among these, super-fast 80W SuperVooc charger which is able to charge the 4500mAh battery to 50 per cent in only 11 minutes, and a 5-minute charge is enough to provide two hours of mobile gaming. Meanwhile, with the Battery Health Engine’s help, the Reno8 Pro 5G’s battery lifespan can be extended up to 1600 charge/discharge cycles3, or roughly four years of average use.

Meanwhile, for mobile gamers, the Reno8 Pro 5G is packed full of system-level optimisations tailored to gaming. 90Hz high-refresh mode for PUBG Mobile enables a more immersive gaming experience, while features like ultra touch response and background update deliver consistently smooth gameplay.

Tying this all together is ColorOS 12.1. To ensure user privacy and safety, ColorOS 12.1 comes with features like anti-peeping for notifications, require password to power off, and recent tasks protection.

The Reno8 5G features dual Sony flagship sensors and several AI-enhanced imaging features such as ultra night video and night portrait.

By adopting 80W SuperVooc with Battery Health Engine, the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 SoC, an upgraded super-conductive VC liquid cooling system, and ColorOS 12.1, the Reno8 5G is said to provide strong durability, reliable performance and smooth experience to users.
