    27 June 2024, SINGAPORE—OPPO today announced the launch of two new AI Phones–the OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro–introducing a suite of industry-leading GenAI features that are set to unlock new realms of productivity and creativity. The two models represent a new chapter in the history of the popular OPPO Reno Series and is the first major release under OPPO's commitment to accelerate the adoption of AI Phones.

    Both the OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro feature a Futuristic Fluid Design and High-Strength Alloy Framework that create a stunning new look while ensuring the most robust design on the Reno Series phone yet, with enhanced protection against drops, pressure, and water. The two models are also equipped with the brand-new 4nm MediaTek Dimensity 7300-Energy For Reno mobile platform, developed exclusively by MediaTek and OPPO to deliver exceptional power efficiency. Combined with OPPO's 80W SUPERVOOCTM Flash Charge technology and the highest energy density 5,000mAh battery in Reno Series history, the new OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro ensure ultra-long battery life, lightning-fast charging, and up to four years of optimal battery lifespan as the Reno Series continues to push the boundaries of practicality, durability, and trend-setting style.

    Accelerating the adoption of AI phones

    Earlier this year, OPPO outlined its commitment to bring AI capabilities to more people beyond the confines of high-end flagship smartphones. As part of these efforts, OPPO has joined Google, Microsoft, MediaTek, Qualcomm and other partners to accelerate the arrival of a new generation of AI Phones.

    The OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro introduce a suite of breakthrough GenAI features1 covering a range of everyday uses. With the newly updated AI Eraser, users can easily remove passing strangers in photos with a simple tap, thanks to the feature's ability to automatically identify unwanted people and objects.

    Both phones also come with two AI features specifically designed to enhance group photos. AI Clear Face gives everyone in a group shot the same star makeover by performing high-definition restoration of details like facial contour, hair, and eyebrows to ensure even those stood further away from the camera are captured with exceptional clarity. AI Best Face, meanwhile, can automatically identify people in photos with closed eyes and use advanced GenAI technology to reopen these eyes, 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, and so on, leveraging the new GenAI capabilities.

    Alongside photo enhancements, the OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro also taps 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 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 organise 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, the OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro feature a bold, forward-looking design centred around a space-age silver exterior. The rear glass panel of both models have 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 another colour option. For a more classic look, the Reno12 in Matte Brown features a rich cocoa hue in a fingerprint-free finish. On the OPPO Reno12 Pro, Space Brown features 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 the OPPO Reno12 Pro, 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 the OPPO Reno12 and the OPPO Reno12 Pro come with a 6.7-inch, 120Hz OLED display capable of displaying up to 1.07 billion colours 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 the OPPO Reno12 is Corning® Gorilla® Glass 7i with its exceptional drop protection. The OPPO Reno12 Pro, meanwhile, features Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2–the toughest protective glass to ever 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 the OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro 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.

    The OPPO Reno12 Pro takes this professional portrait experience even further with a 50MP Telephoto Portrait Camera offering up to 2x optical zoom, 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 in a more agile way, 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.

    Global debuted platform delivers Reno's best-ever power efficiency

    The OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro are the first phones to feature the custom optimised 4nm MediaTek Dimensity 7300 Energy For Reno mobile platform. Co-developed by MediaTek and OPPO to deliver exceptional power efficiency, the new octa-core platform consists of four A78 performance cores and four A55 efficiency cores. In-depth collaboration between OPPO and MediaTek on the Dimensity 7300 Energy For Reno has also delivered breakthroughs in SoC, memory, and storage performance through the latest ColorOS Trinity Engine.

    By using AI models to identify the current user scenario, the Trinity Engine's updated CPU-Vita engine is able to precisely allocate SoC resources, achieving lower power consumption while ensuring system stability and smoothness.

    The RAM-Vita engine enhances RAM utilisation to accelerate app launch speeds and switches. It can keep active background apps running for an incredible 72 hours without skipping a beat. On top of this, OPPO's RAM Expansion can be used to convert 12GB of storage into temporary RAM, providing an extra boost of smoothness whenever needed.

    Finally, the updated ROM-Vita engine now performs lossless compression on infrequently used apps, and manages duplicate files to reduce unnecessary storage use, resulting in increased storage space for user files and faster memory read/write speeds.

    Longer battery life, faster charging

    Targeted optimisations to the anode and cathode structure in the battery of the OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro have helped to create the highest energy density 5,000mAh battery yet on a Reno Series phone, providing extended battery life and over four years of optimal battery condition2 without increasing the size of the battery or the phones.

    With support for OPPO's 80W SUPERVOOCTM Flash Charge on both models, this battery can be charged from 1% to 32% in just ten minutes, with a mere 46 minutes needed for a full 100% charge.3

    Smooth, seamless and steady connectivity

    Making its way to the Reno Series on both the OPPO Reno12 and the OPPO Reno12 Pro is the latest generation of OPPO's proprietary AI LinkBoost technology. Consisting of nine individual antennas arranged in a 360° surround architecture, AI LinkBoost is able to boost signal reception and optimise network selection using a system-level AI model to perform agile network switching based on the user's network environment. For the new generation of AI LinkBoost, OPPO has also conducted extensive local testing and optimisation in markets worldwide to ensure consistently stable connectivity. This includes improving network latency in areas with weak signal or busy networks, enhancing seamless switch between WiFi and cellular network, and accelerating signal recovery speeds when exiting elevators or basements. With the world's first TÜV Rheinland High Network Performance Certification, the OPPO Reno12 Series is validated to deliver a smooth network experience in all tested scenarios for added confidence in its class-leading connected performance.

    For situations like flying, subway commuting, or mountain hiking, where mobile network coverage is unavailable, OPPO has introduced BeaconLink4 to the OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro. Using proprietary communications protocols, BeaconLink boosts Bluetooth transmission to enable communications at a distance of up to 200 meters, making it possible to place one-to-one voice calls in emergency situations without the need for network coverage.
