Using the power of AI, the Reno8 Pro 5G is able to capture ultra-clear images even in low-light environments while intelligently compensating for all necessary adjustments such as exposure, color balance, etc. And yes, standard photo shooting and video recording benefit from this post-processing capability which results in high quality 4K Ultra Night and Ultra HDR videos.

Not only is the camera a big deal for the Reno8 Pro 5G, but the whole design can be seen as an overhaul for the Reno series, as OPPO applied a streamlined unibody design philosophy to it.

First of all, how the back cover can be so unique and shiny is due to a creative process of adopting 800°C hot forging process with 120kg high pressure to the material and then finished with Graphite mode hand polishing via 3 diamond sheets of different roughness levels and 8 different nanoscale polishing processes.

As such, the camera bump is so smooth and elegantly curved that it wouldn’t be considered a bump at all for some people. The Prominent signature binocular camera module with ring flash also adds a quirky yet elegant layout touch exclusive to the device.

By the way, the 7.34mm thickness makes the Reno8 Pro 5G the thinnest Reno ever, and its 183g weight makes it nice to see and nice to hold with 2 colors of icy green and of icy black, show off your style discreetly and grab special attention with the reflective black cover.

Under the hood of the device is the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX SoC in which it is known to operate more efficiently thanks to its higher performance-to-watt ratio and relatively lower thermal power compared to other chipsets in the market. .

Therefore, it is ideal for general gaming, and for the first time ever, PUBG Mobile is officially adding 90Hz mode support for a Reno-class smartphone. Good for fellow chicken dinner players and MOBA players around the world!
