OPPO announced the launch of the latest Reno series handset, the OPPO Reno6 Pro today in Malaysia. As an expert of Portrait Videos, the Reno6 Pro supports a next-level portrait video experience with a load of industry-leading features like the newly-introduced Bokeh Flare Portrait Video to provide cinematic bokeh flare effects in portraits, and the upgraded AI Highlight Video, enabling customers to record every precious moment as professional-looking portrait videos.
The Reno6 Pro comes with cutting-edge technologies, including the IMX766 sensor co-developed by OPPO and Sony, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 870 Mobile Platform, a newly upgraded OPPO Reno Glow finish, and the expertly-designed ColorOS11.3, giving users a trendsetting smartphone and unbeatable gaming & videography experiences.
Equipped with Leading AI Capabilities to Provide Superior Portrait Video Experience
Video recording has become the modern-day equivalent of keeping a diary for global smartphone users. The OPPO Reno series currently serves more than 70 million users across the world each month, who on average, capture over 2 billion photos and over 200 million memories in video format. Powered by OPPO’s AI capabilities, the Reno6 Pro guarantees users the ability to effortlessly capture stunning portrait videos of their daily lives.
The Reno6 Pro features a mighty 50MP AI Quad Camera matrix at the rear, and a 32MP Selfie Camera in front. What makes this setup so unique is the ultra-powerful imaging sensor behind the main camera – the Sony IMX766 sensor.
The large 1/1.56” sensor features DOL-HDR technology, All-Pixel Omni Focus and more to produce high-quality images consistently, while offering a significantly improved video recording experience. Additionally, it has a dedicated color temperature sensor to capture colors more accurately.
Based on the overwhelmingly powerful hardware foundation, the Reno6 Pro has a series of AI-enhanced portrait video functions:
- Bokeh Flare Portrait Video provides a pioneering cinematic quality bokeh effect for smartphone video recording. Powered by OPPO’s 10-million-plus portrait dataset and AI algorithms, Bokeh Flare Portrait Video delivers real-time video processing to capture portrait videos with bokeh light spots in the background, all while keeping the portrait subjects appearing natural and bright. Available on both the front and rear cameras, this dream-like bokeh lighting effect can be applied to your portrait videos with just one tap.
- AI Highlight Video can automatically detect ambient light and make video optimizations accordingly. Whether you are shooting at night, or with strong backlight in the day, AI Highlight Video helps you to capture clearer, brighter, and more vividly-colored portrait videos. When shooting with a backlight, AI Highlight Video enhanced by DOL-HDR improves the dynamic range of the video by up to 4 times.
- Focus Tracking gives you enhanced video auto-focusing capabilities as the camera can identify the main subject and automatically track it consistently and steadily.
For photography, Flash Snapshot on Reno6 Pro enables users to capture clear shots of moving subjects or take quick-capture photos, improving the hit rate for clear photos by over 17.7%. After each perfect shot, Reno6 Pro also provides creative post-production tools like AI Palette, which can enhance your images similar to popular styles found online with just one click.
Stunning Design Featuring the One-and-only OPPO Reno Glow
Staying loyal to its Reno Series predecessors, the Reno6 Pro continues the slim and lightweight design language with a thickness of 7.99mm and weighing only 188g. This phone also inherits OPPO’s unique Reno Glow design, featuring two new striking colors – Arctic Blue and Lunar Grey.
Marking its debut on the Reno6 Pro, the Arctic Blue version comes with an all-new upgraded OPPO Reno Glow design. Inspired by the natural phenomenon of the crystallization of snow at freezing point, OPPO perfects this arduous manufacturing process of nearly 50 complex steps after hundreds of attempts and over a year of optimization.
Ultimately, this delivers an all-new visual effect that makes millions of tiny “snowflakes” appear on the phone’s glass cover. It emits a faint shimmer – just like how snow underneath the sun flickers gently in correspondence to light and shade. Moreover, the improved process also makes the back of the phone silky smooth with 30% improvement on its fine texture.
On the front of the phone is a 6.5-inch 3D curved display with a 90Hz refresh rate and up to 180Hz touch sampling rate that ensures a smooth and comfortable viewing experience. The display is HDR10+ certified for more vivid and higher quality visuals. Meanwhile, this display has 360-degree Light-Sensing capabilities that is enabled by two sensors, which improves the accuracy of auto-brightness adjustments, making the screen more comfortable to look at no matter where you are.
Moreover, the device is Netflix HD/HDR and Amazon Prime Video HD/HDR certified for delivering high-quality content. The material used to make the screen is also SGS-certified as eye-friendly and will not cause any strain or discomfort.
Powerful Hardware for Exceptional Entertainment
The foundation of Reno6 Pro’s superior all-round performance is its top-end hardware. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 870 5G Mobile Platform with a cutting-edge Kryo 585 CPU, which can operate at up to 3.2GHz. It is the highest clock speed achieved to date within the mobile world.
It also comes with 12GB of RAM and OPPO’s self-developed RAM Expansion technology. Some of the available ROM storage can be turned to RAM space when turning on this feature. Essentially, the original 12GB of RAM can be supplemented with an additional 3GB/5GB/7GB of memory when needed, meaning that even with multiple apps running at the same time, the Reno6 Pro still runs smoothly.
For better heat dissipation, in addition to the existing Multi-cooling System, the Reno6 Pro has been upgraded with a 31.68 cm² Ultra-large Vapour Chamber that boasts a thickness of merely 0.4mm. It provides users with the ultimate cooling solution while maintaining an ultra-thin design.
For better stamina, the device also features a large 4500mAh battery and 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 which can achieve 100% full-charge in merely 31 minutes.
Adding another layer of immersion, the Reno6 Pro is equipped with a top-of-the-line X-axis Linear Motor. Also, customized gaming features like Quick Startup and Game Focus Mode contribute to blurring the boundaries between the virtual world and reality.
The User-friendly ColorOS 11.3
In addition to the superior portrait video features, stunning design, and flagship-level performance on Reno6 Pro, ColorOS 11.3 provides the foundation for an efficient, convenient, and relaxing experience.
To significantly improve productivity on the Reno6 Pro, System Booster – a set of system-level optimizations is designed to ensure a smooth experience throughout the entire phone lifecycle. Freeform Screenshots allows translation between over 100 languages on any selected screenshot area, while Private System allows users to create two independent spaces on the phone with partitioned apps and data.
Regarding data protection, the phone is super secure and has been certified by third-party organizations including ePrivacy, ISO27001, and ISO27701.
Users are also given plenty of ways to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle with O Relax, a built-in app containing a suite of soothing sounds and casual games to help users relieve anxiety and find inner peace, and the Artist Wallpaper Project – Envisioning Chemistry series of special wallpapers visualizes the beauty of science and offers a burst of inspiration whenever users look at their phones.
