Both devices come packed with groundbreaking technologies pushing the smartphone performance to new heights. Today's focus will be on the Reno8 handset. Priced at Rs 29,999 the Reno8 can give any smartphone a run for its money. Here are five reasons why the Reno8 is the best handset in its price range.

1) Most Advanced Camera System

The Reno8 brings a massive rear camera upgrade delivering a best-in-class photography experience. The smartphone features a triple-lens rear camera comprising a 50MP Sony IMX766 flagship sensor that delivers stunning results for both still photography and videos. The 50MP IMX766 sensor has a massive 1/1.56" sensor size that lets in an ample amount of light to create gorgeous portrait videos and crisp still pictures, especially at night.

The 50MP Sony flagship sensor also features hardware-based DOL-HDR technology to increase the video dynamic range with the perfect balance of brightness and shadows. Most smartphone cameras simply lack such HDR capabilities to capture intricate details and vivid colors in difficult light conditions. With the Reno8, you can capture brighter and sharper images and videos even while posing against the sunlight or harsh unnatural lighting.

The Ultra Night Video and Ultra HDR Video modes are AI-backed camera modes that automatically sense the lighting conditions and make critical hardware-software camera changes to help you capture the best possible videos.

32MP Sony IMX709 Sensor For Best-In-Class Selfies

Moving on, the 32MP front-facing shooter on the Reno8 5G takes the selfie game to the next level with a redesigned pixel array design. It uses the flagship Sony IMX709 sensor with an exclusive RGBW sensor featuring white pixels to increase light intake by 60% and reduce noise by 35%, resulting in even brighter and clearer images and videos.


Moreover, the front camera employs parallel R/G/B three-channel AI noise reduction in the RAW domain, enabling you to capture ultra-clear portraits even in extremely challenging light conditions. The advanced camera tech makes it possible to capture night-time portraits, another industry rare for a camera-focused smartphone.

The selfie camera also benefits from OPPO's AI Portrait Retouching feature. It can identify 193 facial features, and the algorithm adjusts images differently for each type of face and even works with group selfies.

You can also use the dedicated Portrait Mode to customize the image output by tweaking the aperture value and size of the bokeh light spots. The Reno8 portrait mode offers 22 levels of adjustments. Lastly, the Reno8's camera also allows you to record stunning time-lapse and 960fps slow-motion videos with best-in-class results.

2) Distinctive Design & Excellent Durability

The Reno8 is a design masterpiece. The phone has a streamlined unibody design as OPPO's flagship series, which is a first for the Reno series. The camera module has been seamlessly integrated with the back panel, giving it a unified and smooth appearance. In fact, the Reno8-series has the most distinctive looking camera module.

The 'Binocular Camera' module evokes the nostalgic feeling of vintage cinema cameras that not only look good but are effective when it comes to acing perspective due to its carefully placed lenses. Adding to the design is an innovative ring flash that enhances the nighttime pictures.

Moving on, the Reno8 also excels in ergonomics, making one-handed operation extremely comfortable. It is 7.6mm thin and weighs 179mm, making it the slimmest Reno ever. It's also one of the lightest and most stylish handsets in its class.

The Reno8 is available in two sophisticated colors - Shimmer Gold and Shimmer Black. Both color variants flaunt a striking gradient visual effect and remain smudge-free.

The Reno8 also meets the most stringent durability requirements. The handset has passed over 390 lab tests (Salt spray test, Environment aging test, Rain test, and so on) ensuring users get the toughest device in its category to withstand all real-world abuses.

3) Unmatched Performance

The Reno8 draws power from the super-efficient Mediatek Dimensity 1300 5G integrated SoC delivering powerful 5G connectivity. The octa-core CPU is fabricated on the advanced 6nm process that increases CPU performance by 40%, GPU's output by 106% and boosts overall power efficiency by 20%. These numbers translate to smooth computing, lag-free gaming and unmatched efficiency. The multitasking is taken care of by ample RAM and ROM combination (8GB LPDDR4X + 128GB UFS3.1).

The Reno8 handles heating effects like a pro, thanks to the newly designed Super-Conductive VC Liquid Cooling System.

The improved cooling mechanism has a 16.8 percent larger cooling area, 13.5 percent higher thermal conductivity, and 1.5x overall cooling efficiency, allowing the device to stay cool and run smoothly even when playing the most graphically intensive games or streaming videos on a loop.

4) Unprecedented Charging Speeds & Longer Battery Lifespan

OPPO being a pioneer in fast-charging technology always ensures users get the best-in-class charging speeds throughout the phone's lifecycle. The smartphone features 80W SUPERVOOOCTM flash charging technology that refuels the device's 4,500mAh battery cell in no time. The bundled charger takes just 28-minutes to recharge the battery from flat to 100%. You can have two hours of game time with just five minutes of charge time as tested by TÜV Rheinland.

The Reno8 5G's battery isn't just a high-performance cell, it's also smarter than the competition, thanks to OPPO's Battery Health Engine (BHE). The innovative battery tech extends the overall lifecycle of the battery by solving the degradation problem, a common phenomenon that affects the battery lifecycle on smartphones.

The technology intelligently controls the charging current and voltage current through real-life monitoring to extend the battery lifespan to up to 1600 charge/discharge cycles. The battery cell powering the Reno8 5G retains peak performance even after four years of daily phone usage, thus extending the handset's lifespan.

Smartest Android Skin With Unlimited Convenience

The Reno8 runs the most intuitive Android skin. Based on the latest version of Android, OPPO's in-house ColorOS 12.1 is a major reason behind the fluid and lag-free performance of the Reno8. The minimally designed UI keeps the familiar stock Android feel while providing a smarter, more personalised, and secure user experience.

With the Reno8 series, OPPO has upgraded some features to further boost convenience and performance. These include- Air Gestures, Multi-Screen Connect, Anti-Peeping for Notifications, Photos Card and Omojis.

  • With Air Gestures, you can control app-centric features such as play/pause videos in the YouTube app, scroll through your social media app's timeline and answer/mute calls with a simple scroll and wave gestures.

  • The ColorOS 12.1 brings new security features such as 'Anti-Peeping Notifications'. The feature utilizes machine learning to safeguard your notifications when the phone detects someone else trying to take a glance at your phone's display. Furthermore, the new Reno8 is certified by third parties including ISO, and TrustArc to maintain the highest privacy standards.
  • Lastly, you can be more expressive with the newly added 'Omoji' feature on ColorOS 12.1. The Reno8 has 200 trendy decorative elements with built-in automatic facial recognition technology to convey your emotions with highly personalized avatars.
