The era of 5G connectivity is opening up interesting new possibilities in the world of technology, and one industry that is set to benefit the most from this advancement is video. The real potential of video is being revealed to consumers, and videography is emerging as the future of content creation and consumption. While OPPO has already proved its mettle when it comes to pioneering 5G innovations, this year, it has upped the ante when it comes to the advancement of videography innovations as well. All thanks to the launch of the Reno5 Pro 5G in India.
The OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G is the first India-only smartphone to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC, boasting 5G support and flagship performance. And, while that’s certainly a novelty in the high-end segment, the Reno5 Pro 5G delivers much more than just 5G technology. It’s a full-fledged video shooting device, capable of delivering highly-detailed videos no matter what conditions you are shooting in. We took it for a quick spin. Here’s our first look of the new OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G.
Industry-First FDF technology for exceptional videography
The pièce de résistance of Reno5 Pro 5G is the proprietary AI Highlight Video, an industry-leading tech feature that enhances video quality to be clearer, brighter, and more natural in almost all light conditions. True to the Reno DNA, we are seeing yet another pioneering innovation by the brand. There are AI algorithms that detect light conditions to automatically adjust the camera settings based on different scenarios. The feature is available on both the front and rear cameras. For example, it switches to the HDR video mode automatically when there is a harsh backlight and fixes it. Or, it automatically turns on Ultra Night video recording which detects poorly-lit scenes and improves the brightness, colour vibrancy and clarity. It is just magical to see these happen in action. Makes it very easy for even an amateur to shoot videos.
This unique AI Highlight Video relies on OPPO’s innovative Full Dimension Fusion Portrait Video System, another industry-first technology that automatically adjusts the backlight and contrasts to bring out facial features in videos. Try out this feature during the sunrise or sunset, or when in a cafe with bright interiors to get excellent facial details.
The OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G also allows you to shoot from both the front and rear cameras simultaneously, making it a sought-after feature for content creators who shoot reaction videos. Record a talk show featuring two people, sing a duet, or simply a reaction of seeing an amazing sunset off a cliff. There’s also AI Colour Portrait, Monochrome Video, Ultra Steady Video 3.0 and 960fps slo-mo recording.
Once you are done shooting, the SOLOOP app in the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G also lets you edit the footage in the phone itself, making on-the-go video editing easy. It can auto generate filters or music to enhance the final video or you can even manually choose what you want to add. Plus, cinematic videos can be shared instantly or even edited into a short movie, making you the influencer you never knew you could be.
Talking beyond the video part, the 64MP main camera can also do some amazing tricks. For example, it enables you to to make moving subjects look crisp with Image Clear Engine (ICE). There’s also AI Scene Recognition for when you want AI to automatically make your pictures look better as per the situation. But, we were saving the best for last. In the Night, the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G turns into a beast. You now get Ultra Night Selfie mode for bright and crisp selfies when it gets dark. And, there is an amazing Night Flare Portrait mode for low light Portrait shots, especially when there are tiny sources of night lights in the background. For example, fairy lights.
MediaTek Dimesity 1000+ and ColorOS 11.1 Are a Match Made in Heaven
Now, powering all this extreme camera performance is the new MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC that is a super powerful flagship chip. The phone literally just flies through anything you throw at it. This flagship SoC built on the 7nm process offers industry-leading performance and extremely low-power consumption at the same time, making tasks like gaing and videography a breeze. Add the supremely refined ColorOS 11.1 based on Android 11 — which has greater efficiency, unparalleled smoothness, and strengthened privacy — to the mix and you have one of the best smartphone experiences you can ask for. You can easily customize your Reno5 Pro 5G exactly the way you want to, with rich UI customization options like Always-On Display and Dark Mode that will open up a world of opportunities for users to live infinite possibilities through their smartphone. And with enhanced privacy, thanks to OPPO’s massive security efforts, users can easily protect their personal data.
And, the 4350mAh battery supports 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash charging! Which can essentially charge upto 100 percent in just 30 minutes. Seriously, that is just fantastic, especially for people living a fast-paced life.
Industrial Design Like no Other
The Reno5 Pro 5G, available in India in a stunning Astral Blue and Starry Black colours, undoubtedly takes forward the stunning design language of the Reno series. The Astral Blue particularly features the new generation Reno Glow process, a unique AG glass process designed by OPPO to enhance the premium look of this stunning device. The 7.6mm thickness and 173gm weight is definitely a great respite from the chunky slabs we’ve been testing lately, and is especially a novelty for a 5G phone. And, it goes without saying that the in-hand feel is fantastic. The industrial design of the phone is such that the rear panel shimmers when held against the light. It’s also grease resistant and has a certain glow to it.
But what adds to the beauty of the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G is its 6.5-inch 3D Borderless Sense Screen and 90Hz Refresh Rate, with an in-display fingerprint sensor and HDR10+ certification for a more vivid and colourful visual experience. The touch response is so smooth and so great, as is the quality of the display panel. All of these features make the Reno5 Pro 5G feel just right in your hands.
