Superior camera technology has always been a strong feature of the Reno series. The Reno8 Series takes a big leap in the introduction of pathbreaking camera innovations. The Reno8 Pro will be the first device in India to feature OPPO’s coveted MariSilicon X Imaging NPU technology. MariSilicon X Imaging NPU technology was first introduced by OPPO in its annual tech event the OPPO INNO Day. Through the use of this technology, the OPPO Reno8 Pro will get massive benefits of computation photography to deliver 4K Ultra HDR quality videos at night thereby greatly enhancing the phone’s night camera experience.

The NPU is built on a cutting-edge 6nm chip architecture that packs 3.6 billion transistors capable of performing up to 18 trillion operations per second. MariSilicon X Imaging NPU’s image processing speed along with real-time lossless AI processing will help photographers and videographers tackle the pain points of night-time shooting with each frame to deliver stunning and bright night videos on the Reno8 Pro.

The Reno8 Series will also deliver on its promise of brilliant Portrait photography and videography. With advanced in-house developed AI algorithms that render accurate Indian skin tone detection one can create even better Bokeh Flare Portrait Videos for the ultimate professional camera experience than before. The AI has been further enhanced to help the camera system distinguish between skin blemishes and beauty spots as well as the age and sex of the subject. The camera system can intelligently apply different levels of beautification for these flawless portrait effects on the upcoming Reno8 Series.

The Reno8 Series continues to leverage RGBW sensor technology with the Flagship Sony IMX709 selfie sensor and IMX766 sensor for the rear camera. The IMX709 captures 60% more light and increases the purity by 20.2% when compared with regular RGGB sensors. This means more light and better color tones for your selfie portraits. By leveraging a combination of these technologies, the Reno8 Series will significantly improve your smartphone camera experience during the night.

A device designed with unmatched aesthetics

OPPO has always pushed the envelope when it comes to designing its smartphones. Every Reno device has only gotten better when it comes to its craftsmanship. The Reno8 Series is also going to set a new horizon of design greatness. The Reno8 Pro will adopt the Golden Ratio from Sacred Geometry as its design philosophy. The Golden Ratio (1:.618), renders mathematical proportions that when employed instantly make the device more pleasing to the eye. It takes the Reno8 Pro into the league of beautifully designed architecture like the Great Pyramids and Taj Mahal, which have used the Golden Ratio, making the device a piece of art.

At 7.34mm the Reno8 Pro is also going to be the slimmest Reno yet. Both devices in the series set to offer a streamlined unibody design with the entire back panel being made from a single piece of glass that is heat-forged and pressure molded to form the soft curves required for the camera module. 

Taking the same design philosophy to the camera module the series will showcase a prominent binocular camera set-up that resembles the two reels of a film camera. When looked at carefully the camera setup will look like the infinity symbol—as well as the number ‘8 which stands for the camera prowess of the Reno8 Series.
