The launch event took place online, on OPPO Mobile India’s official YouTube channel and Facebook page, through OPPO’s first AR launch event. The brand promised one of the most immersive AR experiences, ever and it delivered with aplomb. Not once did it feel like we were watching the launch on our screens; the effort and the innovation behind this unique launch event were definitely visible and added more premium-ness to the device. If you look at the price, the OPPO Reno4 Pro can easily be crowned as the most premium smartphone in this price segment. Well, when you take a look at its specifications, you’ll realize that the phone offers much more than what its price suggests. In fact, the Reno4 Pro sets a benchmark for the segment by offering a world’s fastest smartphone charging technology commercially available 65W SuperVOOC 2.0, best-in-class 3D Borderless Sense Screen with a 90Hz refresh rate in this price segment, a super-capable quad-camera setup with a 48MP primary lens, and a 960fps slow-motion video recording. Get set to #SenseTheInfinite and a #TrueBorderlessExperience
These features, however, are just the tip of the iceberg. The OPPO Reno4 Pro offers a plethora of other features that will astound you. Let us dive deep into the pool of features that the OPPO Reno4 Pro offers and see what makes it the most compelling smartphone to buy in the segment.
3D Borderless Sense Screen
If you are well-versed with smartphone displays, you’ll know that the best screens in the market are usually curved as the curvature not only offers an immersive viewing experience but also gives the device a premium look. However, curved displays are found only in high-end flagship devices. Well, that notion changed with the launch of the OPPO Reno4 Pro. This is the first smartphone with a 3D Curved Screen with 90 Hz of refresh rate in this price category, offering a premium viewing experience. The screen has a 55.9-degree curvature, extremely thin bezels at the top and bottom, and a massive, 92.01% screen to body ratio, which is why OPPO calls it 3D Borderless Sense Screen.
The 6.5-inch E3 Super AMOLED FHD+ display of the Reno4 Pro offers a high level of brightness. In fact, the display of the Reno4 Pro has the best-in-class 1,100 nits of peak brightness, ensuring that the content on the display is clearly visible even under the brightest sunlight. What makes the display great though is how it offers smooth animations in day to day use and better gaming experience. Oh, did we tell you that the display has a punch-hole as well? The left-mounted punch-hole on the display offers an unobstructed view of the content for an even better viewing experience.
In simpler words, the OPPO Reno4 Pro has the best display in its segment. With a screen as immersive, users will not be able to keep their eye off it, which is why, the display of the OPPO Reno4 comes with TUV Rheinland certification and Eye Care Mode, which cut down the blue light to comfort your eyes. What else could you ask for?
65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Fast Charging
OPPO has been a pioneer of smart device charging technologies. It was the first brand in the world to offer a 65W charging speed – the fastest in the industry at the time of its launch – with the SuperVOOC 2.0 technology in the Reno Ace smartphone. OPPO is now bringing the same flagship-grade 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charging technology in this price bracket.
The SuperVOOC 2.0 fills the 4000mAh battery of the Reno4 Pro fully in just 36 minutes, the best in its class. If you are in a hurry, a quick, 5-minute charge gives the OPPO Reno4 a battery backup that is enough for four-hour video playback. The OPPO Reno4 Pro has five layers of battery protection and it also comes with TUV Rheinland Safe Fast-Charge System Certification to make sure that the phone stays safe when charging the battery at such blazingly-fast speeds.
Offering a large battery and a super-fast charging speed wasn’t enough for OPPO. The brand went ahead and packed the device with Super Power Saving Mode and Super Nighttime Standby. The Super Power Saving Mode reserves the battery power by running only the essential services so that your device can last longer when you need it to. The Super Nighttime Standby, on the other hand, learns the sleeping behavior of the user to optimize the battery usage during the night time (when you are sleeping), which results in as low as 2% battery consumption overnight.
The OPPO Reno4 Pro is undoubtedly a boon for those customers who are looking for a smartphone with the best battery experience in the mid-range price category.
Endless camera features for endless imaging
A great image quality requires great camera hardware. And that is exactly what the Reno4 Pro offers. It comes with four rear cameras, each for a specific task.
The main camera in the quad-camera setup is a 48MP IMX586 sensor. Thanks to its high resolution, the main camera captures images with the utmost details. The second camera is an 8MP ultrawide sensor, followed by a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP Mono camera that elevates your photography game to another level.
Capable hardware isn’t the only thing that you need to capture high-quality images. You also need intelligent software. Well, the OPPO Reno4 Pro offers a plethora of software tweaks for great imaging. The most exciting software feature of the camera is the AI Portrait Color. It uses artificial intelligence to highlight the colors of the subject and mute the background. Want the same effect in videos? The OPPO Reno4 Pro has got you covered with the AI Color Portrait Video. Another great software feature of the rear camera is the Night Flare Portrait. It uses intelligent algorithms to blur-out lights in the background to offer a natural bokeh effect while capturing images at night. There is also an Ultra Dark Mode to capture bright images in lowlight conditions and a 108MP mode that captures 108MP shots for images with great amount of details.
The most interesting feature though is the 960FPS AI Slow Motion mode. It captures videos at a staggering, 960 frames per second and plays it back at an eight times slower speed compared to reality for a movie-like slow-motion effect. What is great about this mode is that the AI recognizes the motion and records the scene automatically so that you don’t have to go through the hassle of clicking the record button at the exact moment when the scene is about to kick off. When it comes to standard video recording mode, the Reno4 Pro captures stable and shake-free videos thanks to its Ultra Steady Video 3.0 technology.
Coming to the selfies, the Reno4 Pro has a 32MP IMX616 selfie camera with 1/2.74-inch sensor size and f/2.4 aperture. Just like the rear camera, the front camera has a special mode to capture images in low light conditions, the Ultra Night Selfie Mode. It is perfect for capturing bright and punchy images at a party or on the streets at night. The front camera is also great for video recording. It has Electronic Image Stabilization, which, OPPO calls Front Steady Video. These are just a few features of the front and rear cameras of the OPPO Reno4 Pro. There is a whole world of camera features waiting to be explored on the OPPO Reno4 Pro.
Power at your fingertips
The OPPO Reno4 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor. This chipset is based on an 8nm fabrication process, which means that it has an extremely low power consumption for a great battery backup. The processor has eight Kryo 465 CPU cores and Adreno 618 GPU, giving the device a tremendous amount of power to carry out the heavy tasks with ease. What makes the performance even better is that the phone packs in an 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM; it can handle the heaviest of the multitasking with any drama.
With so much power under the hood, it is essential to keep the hardware temperature under check so that the system doesn’t thermal throttle. To ensure that the hardware stays cool, the OPPO Reno4 Pro comes with a 3D Multi-cooling System; it is a combination of a Graphite Tube, Graphite Sheet, and a Cooper Foil. The 3D Multi-cooling System makes sure that the OPPO Reno4 Pro performs consistently even under the heaviest of the load. With powerful hardware and an innovative cooling system, the Reno4 Pro is a perfect device for power users.
A feature-packed software
Having powerful hardware is just half of the story. What also matters in day to day usage is how convenient is the software of the smartphone. This is where the Android 10-based ColorOS 7.2 of the OPPO Reno4 Pro comes into play. The ColorOS 7.2 not only offers a ton of additional tools over the stock Android OS to enhance the productivity of the user but it also comes with a plethora of features that make navigating the UI easier.
Starting with the tools, the ColorOS 7.2 comes loaded with OPPO Share. It allows the user to transfer files to a nearby device quickly using a Wi-Fi connection. One of the major issues that users face after using the device for a long term is that their phone slows down considerably. The main culprit behind this issue is the data fragmentation. The OPPO Reno4 Pro with its ColorOS 7.2 offers Anti-Fragmentation Engine. It optimizes the fragmentation of physical and virtual memory so that your phone runs faster even after prolonged usage. Speaking of, the ColorOS 7.2 also has AI APP Preloading. It predicts the app that you are going to open next and preloads it so that the app opens in a blink of an eye.
Coming to the features that make using the device easier, the ColorOS 7.2 features Icon Pull-down Gesture, which moves all the app icons on the home screen to the bottom corner of the display to make it easier for you to use the device with one hand. There is also a Quick Return Bubble feature baked into the UI. With this feature, a floating bubble pops up on the screen once you minimize the game, alerting you of the time remaining for the match to start, and allowing you to return to the game with a single touch on the screen.
While we are on the topic of entertainment, it is worth mentioning that the OPPO Reno4 Pro comes with Netflix HD support for you to play HD videos in the Netflix app. What makes the media experience even better is that the OPPO Reno4 Pro features stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos for an immersive audio experience. There are a ton of other features that make the OPPO Reno4 Pro a fun device to use. You’ll have to use it to experience it.
An astounding design
By now, you might have understood how powerful and feature-packed the OPPO Reno4 Pro is but it is equally important for a smartphone to have a good physical design. Well, the OPPO Reno4 Pro aces this criterion as well. The phone features a super-slim, 7.7mm waistline, rounded edges, and a 3D Curved Screen display, for a futuristic look.
The aesthetically designed body and a weight of just 161 grams of the OPPO Reno4 Pro offer a great level of comfort and grip in hand at the same time it is the most lightweight premium smartphone with a 6.5-inch display in India. The OPPO Reno4 Pro comes in two beautiful color options, Starry Night and Silky White. Both the color options have an anti-glare finish for a subtle yet premium look.
The classy showstopper
Along with the OPPO Reno4 Pro, the brand has also launched the OPPO Watch in the Indian market. The OPPO Watch 46mm variant is the first smartwatch in the world to have an AMOLED dual-curved display, putting it leaps ahead of every other smartwatch available in the market at the moment. The OPPO Watch comes with Google’s Wear OS, which has support for a ton of amazing third-party applications, to extend the productivity on the wearable. Powering the smartwatch is the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC, which is extremely power-efficient for a long battery backup yet powerful enough for a smooth performance.
Staying true to the roots of a smartwatch, the OPPO Watch offers a bunch of hardware and software features – such as heart rate monitor, sleep tracker, and exercise modes — to keep your health in check. It even has 5ATM water-resistance so that you can go for a swim without worrying about the watch. Moreover, there’s an all-new Watch VOOC Flash Charging that lets you charge your watch in a super-fast and safe way. It takes just 75 minutes to reach a full charge and charges to 46% in just 15 minutes. Also, the OPPO Watch gets a premium 6-series aluminum-alloy body and a ton of beautiful-looking watch faces that you can flaunt on your wrist.
