Don’t miss any special moments. Start capturing them this new year with high-quality images and videos that you can keep for years to come.

The evolution of cameras on mobile phones is a continuous one. This feeds the demands of those who are constantly in search of a high-performance mobile phone with equally exceptional camera features. We often hear news of mobile phone cameras being upgraded with higher megapixels or plans to add even more lenses to the back and front of the phone. Even though the new OPPO Reno5 series is introduced with the same ideation of providing better camera experience, this series is built with multiple new aspects that truly brought it to a whole new level.

OPPO, dubbed as the AI portrait expert has constructed an entirely new experience for its users. This newest line of mobile phones exceeds its previous successors, the OPPO Reno4 and Reno4 Pro. The Reno5 series, consisting of Reno5 5G and Reno5 Pro 5G comes in two colours; Galatic Silver and Starry Black.

Powerful imagery

The Reno5 series comes equipped with 64 MP main camera, 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 2MP macro camera and 2 MP mono camera. The front camera is 32 MP, f/2.4 aperture, 0.8 µm pixel size, and 1/2.8″ sensor which supports up to 1080P video shooting. Every and video taken with the Reno5 series will be pristine clear, thanks to its Image-clear Engine (ICE) system that allows users to capture moving objects with high frame rate shooting, short exposure and multi-frame optimization. Subject detection and focus tracking are optimized to prevent shaking and moving to affect the accuracy and quality of the photo.

Professional videography

As you take videos in uncertain lighting or weather conditions, the AI Highlight Video that’s built in the phone kicks in. It uses AI to examine the lighting conditions of the scene and automatically switches between ultra-night mode and live HDR in both front and rear cameras. Ultra-night mode kicks in when the brightness is below 90, which still effectively allows users to take clear pictures despite low-light conditions. Details are not left out and noise is filtered — these two significant features ensures more accurate colour rendition and facial distortion. Being the first company to incorporate HDR in Android mobile phones, OPPO utilises this feature to create richer and brighter colours in videos when shot under great lighting conditions. The Smart AI also prevents over-beautifying of subjects, preserving its natural beauty.

You can also record from both front and rear camera simultaneously with the Dual-View Video function. No more special moments will be missed this time around when you have both cameras recording at the same time. Users can also customise the split-screen based on their preference with the ‘Multiple camera mode’ feature.

The Ultra-steady Video 3.0 is OPPO’s exclusive stabilization technology. This allows users to capture stabilised videos without the use of a professional stabiliser. There are three stabilization modes, which includes Ultra Steady Video on the main camera and Ultra Steady Video Pro on the ultra-wide-angle camera. Users can take videos with ease, no matter how drastic the movements, without worrying that the video or the subjects will be a blur. Next step? Bring your video to the next level with OPPO’s exclusive smart video editor, SOLOOP. The app is now available and accessible in Reno5 series, it’s a whole library of fun, exciting and updated features for users to edit directly into their video.

Powerful performance and display

The OPPO Reno5 series supports 5G. You can load HD films, videos, music in just seconds and experience no lag while gaming. To further enhance the viewing experience, users are able to watch it all on its 60 Hz OLED 6.43″ screen with resolution FHD+. The screen is also equipped with the third generation of Corning Gorilla Glass. The OPPO Reno5 series is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G that not only allows you to game seamlessly without worrying it’ll heat up the phone, but it also improves camera shooting quality.

Battery performance is also enhanced with 65 W SuperVOOC 2.0 that comes with higher charging speed. Users can get four hours of screen time by just charging it for five minutes. Charge it for 15 minutes and you’ll get 60% while 35 minutes of charging gives you a fully charged mobile phone.
