The Reno5 series offers an advanced portrait video experience with AI Highlight Video and Portrait Beautification Video
February 24th, 2021 Cairo, Egypt – OPPO today announced the launch of the latest handsets in its Reno series, Reno5 5G and Reno5, in Egypt. With its industry-leading video performance, Reno5 5G is the AI portrait expert that enables you to express your best self and inspires you to “Picture Life Together.” Also, it is an icon for trendsetters with its ultra-sleek, ultra-light design and bold colors that will make you stand out. Moreover, its ultra-fast charging and 5G connectivity allows you to enjoy what you love with ease and speed.
Designed for video, OPPO’s first beautification feature in the Reno5 5G – Portrait Beautification Video – leverages AI to detect as many as 194 key facial feature points, applying custom processing that lets your unique look shine through with natural beauty. Together with other advanced technology, including 50W Flash Charge in the Reno5 version and 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge in the Reno5 5G version, a 90Hz AMOLED Screen, 5G support in the Reno5 5G, and a sleek, light design available in two stunning color finishes in the Reno5 version and two-color finishes in the Reno5 5G version, Reno5 is the perfect companion for trendsetters around the world.
“Today’s smartphone is not just a tool to record our memories – it’s a partner that empowers our own unique way of storytelling and archives the unforgettable stories we share with our friends and family,” said Eve Han, Brand Director at OPPO Egypt, adding, “With revolutionary camera technology spanning both hardware and software, Reno5 gives users the power to magically bring to life the color and the light of the world in their own distinct style. By effortlessly capturing outstanding portraits in a video or a photo, night or day, Reno5 empowers us to ‘Picture Life Together’.”
Picture the Best of You with AI Portrait Expert
The Reno5 series introduces an all-new camera system featuring a 64MP rear quadcam matrix for both versions and a 44MP front camera for Reno5 and a 32MP front camera for Reno5 5G. These are further enhanced by the OPPO Full Dimension Fusion (FDF) Portrait Video System, an imaging system designed for superior portrait video effects. The system is composed of two engines, the Quality Enhancement Engine and the Portrait Perception Engine. The Quality Enhancement Engine helps capture clear videos under any conditions, whether at night or in backlit scenes, while in motion or standing still. The Portrait Perception Engine on the other hand defines fine-grained criteria for portrait effects to help deliver naturally processed human subjects and backgrounds. Together, the highly-intuitive system delivers an unmatched experience that not only captures portrait videos in perfect quality, but does so in a way that can help users maintain their unique style.
Powered by the FDF Portrait Video System, Reno5 series takes portrait video quality to the next level with AI Highlight Video – the first feature in the industry to automatically detect the ambient light in a scene and improve the video’s quality accordingly by applying OPPO’s industry-leading Ultra Night Video Algorithms and Live HDR Algorithms. In the case of dark environments, Ultra Night Video Algorithms will come into play automatically to brighten the scene, while detection of backlit scenes will engage Live HDR Algorithms to reduce overexposed areas. Both functions leave videos with better exposure and brightness, less noise, and clear and natural colors with just one click of the “AI” button while in video mode.
The performance of portrait shots have also been given a significant uplift with the Reno5 series' Image-clear Engine. This system-level optimization allows users to take clear snaps of moving subjects, or quickly capture unforgettable moments as and when they occur. Image-clear Engine makes capturing life’s moments a breeze on the Reno5. The phone also supports Ultra-clear 108MP Image, which can bring out unprecedented rich details and textures in portrait images and gives users plenty of flexibility when it comes to editing.
In delivering this new level of video and photo quality, OPPO hopes users can leverage the capabilities of Reno5 to highlight their character in their own way and express their style through their smartphone camera.
To achieve this, the Reno5 series debuts another industry-first video feature in the Reno5 version: AI Mixed Portrait. By combining a portrait video onto a background video, AI Mixed Portrait brings the double exposure video effect to a smartphone for the first time, enabling an all-new artistic effect. The feature comes with two different artistic modes where users can customize how the portrait video blends into the background video, leading to fun and imaginative results.
In the Reno5 5G version, OPPO introduces Portrait Beautification Video, a feature that is capable of detecting as many as 194 key facial feature points to provide tailored optimizations based on each individual. Within the feature are eight customizable tools, offering greater freedom to refine portrait details. Users also have access to differentiated beauty effects for group images, bringing out the diversity of each individual and creating a look that suits everyone’s tastes.
The new Dual-view Video available in both versions enables videos to be captured from the front and rear cameras simultaneously. This double-perspective recording function effortlessly stitches you and the object you are shooting in the same video frame at once – perfect for vloggers who want to remain in the action at all times.
Reno5 also inherits the portrait features for which the Reno series has become renowned for around the world. These include AI Color Portrait, Monochrome Video, 960fps Smart Slow-motion and Night Flare Portrait, which together offer a more comprehensive range of creative tools for you to identify your style through photo and video.
Furthermore, OPPO’s powerful and user-friendly video editing app, SOLOOP, is now accessible from Reno5’s camera interface, giving you the option to edit high-quality videos at ease with professional-quality video templates and editing tools.
Picture Convenience with Smart Innovations
Powered by the AI-enhanced Sensing Algorithm, the single 44MP front-facing camera on the Reno5 supports futuristic touch-free interactions. Smart Message Privacy automatically detects if someone else is looking at your phone and hides notifications accordingly; Smart AirControl enables you to answer or mute a call, and to scroll within apps by using hand gestures; Smart Always-on Display prevents the Reno5 screen from dimming or shutting down while you are using the phone.
Life at Your Pace with 50W Flash Charge for the Reno5 Version and 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 and 5G for the Reno5 5G Version
Among Reno5’s many outstanding performance features, the ultra-fast 50W Flash Charge for the Reno5 version and 65W SuperVOOC2.0 for the Reno5 5G version are other highlights that will change users’ smartphone habits. With 66.6% higher peak power than the previous generation, 50W Flash Charging can charge Reno5 up to 80% within 31 minutes and charge the device to up to 100% in just 48 minutes, whereas the Reno5 5G version can be charged up to 100% of its battery power in 35 minutes. A large 4310mAh battery for the Reno5 version and 4300mAh battery for the Reno5 5G version allows for all-day use, even for the most demanding users.
Reno5 also provides users with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage as default configurations. Together with the 8nm process Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G for the Reno5 version and 7nm process Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G mobile platform for the Reno5 5G version, the phone delivers a speedy performance with balanced power consumption.

The new, refined design of Reno5 makes it an icon for trendsetters and trailblazers.
The Reno5 version comes in two colors: the “ever-changing color” of Fantasy Silver and Starry Black, whereas the Reno5 5G version comes in two colors: Galactic Silver and Starry Black.
With the brand-new Diamond Spectrum process, Reno5’s Fantasy and Galactic Silver colors create a whole new visual effect that can bring out thousands of colors. When looking from different angles or in different lighting, the phone appears in completely new colors. Fantasy and Galactic Silver are also finished with OPPO’s unique Reno Glow process, which is a unique AG glass process designed by OPPO, giving it subtle glittery detail on the back cover, as though millions of diamonds are embedded into it, and making it fingerprint resistant.
Aside from the standout colors, Reno5 is exquisitely designed to be compact and sleek. Weighing 172g (Galactic Silver is 180g) and less than 7.9mm thick , the phone leverages advanced COF packaging to further shrink the bottom edge of the display by 28% compared to the Reno4 to just 3.98mm, delivering a more immersive edge-to-edge display experience with a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio compared to 90.7% for the Reno4. Additionally, Hidden Fingerprint Unlock is integrated underneath the display to ensure instant unlocking while keeping your data secure.
On the front of the Reno5, the 6.4-inch 90Hz AMOLED screen with a single punch-hole design delivers a more vivid touch, which, combined with a crisp FHD+ (2400x1080) resolution and silky smooth 90Hz refresh rate, make for a life-like entertainment experience. The Reno5 also comes with Netflix HD and Amazon Prime Video HD Certification, allowing you to stream content in even greater detail. Furthermore, the low-blue light screen, fully tested, verified and certified by the world-renowned SGS, is designed to protect users’ vision under prolonged usage.
Reno5 comes installed with OPPO’s ColorOS 11.1 out of the box, maintaining the beloved stock Android 11 features while also providing rich UI customization, greater efficiency, unparalleled smoothness, and strengthened privacy sought by OPPO users.
Supporting all-around customization, Reno5 users can design their own Always-on Display and dark-mode to truly make the phone their own. Further innovative features such as Flexdrop and Three-finger Translate with Google Lens significantly increase productivity. Simultaneously, Gaming Shortcut Mode, Gamer Mode, Bullet Screen Messages, and Adjustable Gaming Touch create an ideal environment for you to be totally immersed in entertainment. Security is also enhanced at the operating system level with Private System – allowing users to create multiple accounts on the phone with partitioned app and data.
