    Both phones also come with two AI features specifically designed to enhance group photos. AI Clear Face ensures everyone in a group shot, even those far away from the camera, are captured with exceptional clarity by restoring high-resolution details like facial contour, hair, and eyebrows. AI Best Face meanwhile can automatically identify people in photos with blinked eyes and use advanced GenAI technology to fix them, so no group shot goes to waste.

    For even more imaginative possibilities, AI Studio can create digital avatars or artistic portrait styles from just one single user photo. Users can reimagine themselves as cowboys, stars in a cyberpunk manga, or many other styles leveraging the new GenAI capabilities.

    Alongside photo enhancements, Reno12 5G and Reno12 Pro 5G also tap into the power of AI to bring added efficiency and creativity. Built on the Google Gemini large language model (LLM), AI Toolbox is a new addition to the smart sidebar that leverages powerful recognition capabilities to understand the content displayed on the screen and recommend AI features accordingly, such as quick social media content generation or content summaries for lengthy articles. In the Recording app, users can now also use the new AI Recording Summary tool to intelligently extract text summaries from a voice record and organize them into notes, with information such as to-do lists, times, locations, and other details highlighted and formatted for improved readability.

    Audaciously sleek, conspicuously solid

    Taking the Reno Series firmly into the future on Reno12 5G and Reno12 Pro 5G is a bold, forward-looking design centred around a space-age silver exterior. The rear glass panel of both models has been crafted with OPPO's Fluid Ripple Texture, creating a 3D-like sensation of rippling water cascading across a pond. The innovative use of the parallax effect ensures this visual sensation is achieved while maintaining the same mirror-smooth texture and feel that has become a hallmark of the Reno Series.

    In addition to the new silver look, both models offer two more color options. Sunset Pink on Reno12 5G uses OPPO's pioneering graphic liquid crystal process to craft a fresh take on the 2024 color of the year, Peach Fuzz. For a more classic look, Matte Brown features a rich cocoa hue in a fingerprint-free finish. On Reno12 Pro 5G, Sunset Gold and Space Brown both feature a two-tone matte-gloss design with two halves naturally separated by a chic metallic ribbon running horizontally across the back of the phone.

    On the front of Reno12 Pro 5G, the biggest evolution to the display in Reno Series history arrives in the form of the new Infinite View Screen—one of the most advanced screen technologies currently available on any smartphone. Using a quad micro-curve design, the screen combines the aesthetics of a curved screen with the grip of a flat screen, providing exceptional comfort and fully immersive visuals while significantly reducing the number of accidental touches that occur on the curved edge of the screen.

    Both Reno12 5G and Reno12 Pro 5G come with a 6.7-inch, 120Hz OLED display capable of displaying up to 1.07 billion colors while offering hardware-level low blue light eye protection. Added to this is OPPO's Splash Touch technology, a proprietary solution that allows the screen to function correctly even when the screen or the user's hands are wet.

    Keeping this screen shielded on Reno12 5G is Corning® Gorilla® Glass 7i with its exceptional drop protection. Reno12 Pro 5G meanwhile features Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2–the toughest protective glass ever to appear on a Reno Series phone, providing ultra-flagship level resistance against impacts, drops, bending, and scratches. With an IP65 rating, both models also provide exceptional dust and water resistance, while critical components across the phone, including openings, speakers, the USB-C port, and the SIM card tray, have been reinforced to make the phones even more waterproof.

    Capture life moments with the AI Portrait Expert

    Equipped with a Sony LYT-600 sensor featuring full-pixel omnidirectional autofocus and OIS, the Main Camera of Reno12 5G and Reno12 Pro 5G offers faster and more stable focusing for clearer shots. Both models also feature a Portrait Mode with up to 2x zoom for easy capture of stunning bokeh-rich portraits capable of rivalling those taken using professional cameras.

    Reno12 Pro 5G takes this professional portrait experience even further with a 50MP Telephoto Portrait Camera offering up to 2x optical zoom, and a new 50MP Selfie Camera with autofocus and new AI Portrait Retouching effects that allow for real-time adjustments to facial features like face shape, hairline, cheekbones and more when taking portrait-style selfies.

    Both phones feature an enhanced Flash Snapshot, which adjusts the camera exposure process more agilely, allowing photos to capture more realistic lighting effects and natural skin tones. 4K video at 30fps is also available on both the rear and front-facing cameras for stunning high-definition video at four times the resolution of 1080p video.
