Oppo Reno 8 Pro Specifications & Features

Coming on to the Reno 8 Pro, the flagship smartphone will most likely flaunt a bigger 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The handset is expected to introduce a high-end camera system capable of shooting 4K Ultra night videos with better clarity and less noise.

Moving on, the Reno 8-series handsets will come in sleek designs boasting an aluminum frame coupled with the Gorilla Glass 5. Oppo in a report mentioned that the entire back of the Reno 8 Pro uses a single piece of glass that is heat-forged and pressure molded to form the soft curves required for the camera module. The Reno 8 Pro will be available in two color options- Glazed Green and Glazed Black.

The Reno 8 Pro's triple-lens camera system will work on Oppo's newly developed MariSilicon X neural processing unit (NPU) to improve computational photography. The NPU chip has been fabricated on 6nm chip architecture and comprises 400 patent applications. It packs 3.6 billion transistors and according to Oppo, can perform up to 18 trillion operations per second (18 TOPS).

This according to Oppo will enable the Reno 8 Pro to capture pictures with better color accuracy and more realistic skin tones in both daylight and low-light scenarios.

The camera on the upcoming Reno 8 Pro is said to be capable of performing real-time lossless AI processing in the Bayer RAW domain with image data from the 50MP IMX766 rear camera sensor. The handset will allow photographers to shoot night videos in 4K Ultra HDR quality at up to 20Bit (theoretically), with the brightest spot up to one million times brighter than the darkest.

This sounds quite fun and we can't wait to test the new Oppo Reno 8 Pro handset for its computing and photography performance. Wait for July 18 for our first impressions of the Reno 8-series handsets.
