OPPO Unveils Reno8 Series 5G - The Portrait Expert That Delivers an Unparalleled Lowlight Photography Experience
KUALA LUMPUR, 21st July 2022 --- OPPO today announced the launch of its latest Reno Series smartphone — the OPPO Reno8 Series 5G — in Malaysia. Designed to be a Portrait Expert in every aspect, Reno8 Pro 5G is equipped with OPPO’s first self-developed, dedicated imaging NPU, MariSilicon X. With the support of MariSilicon X’s powerful image processing capabilities, Reno8 Pro 5G delivers a series of innovative camera features to help users shoot ultra-clear portraits in even the most challenging scenarios.
Ultra-clear portraits in any situation
Equipped with a slew of flagship imaging features, Reno8 Pro 5G brings ultra-clear portrait photos and videos to all-new heights with its powerful hardware and software foundations.
At the core of this unrivalled portrait experience is OPPO’s first self-developed imaging NPU, MariSilicon X, which provides an immense level of dedicated computing power for Reno8 Pro 5G’s imaging features, all while consuming even less power. Built on cutting-edge 6nm process technology and industry leading DSA architecture, MariSilicon X is able to deliver an incredible 18 trillion operations per second (18 TOPS) of dedicated image processing power. With this large computing power and high data throughput, MariSilicon X can perform lossless real-time 4K AI processing and up to 20bit HDR fusion in the RAW domain, while achieving up to 8dB signal-to-noise ratio for images. Through its ability to directly process images in the lossless RAW domain, MariSilicon X acts as an unmatched foundation for Reno8 Pro 5G’s ultimate imaging experience.
To further optimize the shooting experience in lowlight environments, both Reno8 Pro 5G and Reno8 5G feature an upgraded Dual Sony Flagship Sensors— the IMX709 for the front camera and the IMX766 for the rear camera.
Sony IMX709is a next-generation RGBW 32MP camera sensor customized by OPPO. It ensures 60% increase for light intake and 35% improvement for noise reduction1 when compared with traditional RGGB sensors. Together with OPPO’s self-designed Quadra Binning algorithm, every selfie will look dynamically bright and sharp no matter in lowlight or backlight scenes. Together with DOL-HDR technology embedded on the sensor, the IMX709 enables front camera to easily capture high-quality, professional-looking selfies in any scenarios. Additionally, the IMX709 on the Reno8 Pro 5G supports AutoFocus on the front camera for the first time, enabling 2x zoom when taking selfies. With a minimum focal distance of 15cm, it is now possible to capture super close-up shots using Reno8 Pro 5G’s front camera, offering unprecedented detail in selfies.
On the rear camera, the Reno8 Series 5G comes with the SONY IMX766 sensor, delivering an enhanced portrait experience with its large 1/1.56-inch sensor size and features like All Pixel Omni-Directional PDAF and DOL-HDR.
Powered by MariSilicon X Imaging NPU and the Dual Sony Flagship Sensors, Reno8 Pro 5G provides a flagship-level portrait camera experience. It is also the first time that 4K video shooting has been brought to a smartphone at this price point range - with 4K Ultra Night Video, users can capture ultra-clear portrait videos at night, while 4K Ultra HDR Video optimizes portrait videos taken in the presence of glaring backlight such as when there is strong sunlight. Both features can significantly improve image quality and color expression in pictures, avoiding over-exposure in bright areas while retaining the maximum amount of detail in dark areas. Aided by the inbuilt AI-enhanced retouching algorithms, human faces appear more natural and vivid in photos and videos shot with the device.
