OPPO Reno8 series now official in Singapore

Unparalleled portrait shooting capabilities



The OPPO Reno8 series smartphones — the Reno8 5G and Reno8 Pro 5G — are now official in Singapore.

Billed as the “Portrait Expert”, both variants feature Dual Sony flagship sensors and several AI-enhanced imaging features such as Ultra Night Video and Night Portrait that look to make them the undisputed portrait shooting smartphone in their segment.

Revolutionary imaging capabilities

Putting premium on lowlight photography, the Reno8 series have upgraded cameras to offer an even more optimized shooting experience for that particular aspect, compared to the previous Reno7.

The Reno8 series phones sport two of Sony’s flagship dual sensors:

  • IMX709 for the front camera
  • IMX766 for the rear camera

The 32MP IMX709 in particular supports AutoFocus for the front camera for the first time, enabling 2x zoom for selfies. Both sensors allow more light intake and better brightness while getting the benefit of advanced technologies that all lead to better focus, speed, accuracy, and stability.

Thanks to the combination of the MariSilicon X and Sony dual sensors, 4K Ultra Night Video and 4K Ultra HDR Video are also made possible on the Pro.

Other photography and videography modes and functions users can expect from the two new devices include:

  • Night Portrait
  • AI Portrait Retouching
  • Portrait Mode
  • Hyperlapse
  • 960fps AI Slow-Motion

Powerful, durable

As the Reno8 series serves more uses than just mobile photography and videography, the Pro is powered by a Dimensity 8100-MAX 5G chipset and has OPPO’s MariSilicon X imaging NPU. It has a 6.7-inch ultra-clear HDR10+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

Not to be outdone, the Reno8 has a Dimensity 1300 processor and 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. Both have advanced cooling systems to ensure a seamless performance at all times.

Users can definitely utilize the phones for gaming too, with features such as 1000Hz Ultra Touch Response and 90Hz high-refresh mode for PUBG Mobile.

Both house 4,500mAh batteries with support 80W SUPERVOOC charging and OPPO’s Battery Health Engine which intelligently controls the charging current and voltage so users can expect a better lifespan.

Design-wise, the phones sport a unique streamlined unibody design; the common standalone camera “bump” has been eliminated, while a 75-degree micro-arc transition to the camera area has been created to make them look more stunning.
