Gadget maker Oppo just launched three flagship smartphones, including one designed for taking portrait-style photos and videos.
Company update Reno8 Pro 5G, Reno8 5G and Reno8 Z 5G All have specs on par with leading competitors, but the Pro 5G is equipped with a proprietary Neural Processing Unit (NPU) designed specifically to enable advanced camera features.
The NPU, called MariSilicon X, allows 18 trillion operations per second, each entirely dedicated to image processing. What does it mean? The Reno8 Pro 5G captures lossless real-time 4K AI-assisted video, handles HDR and RAW footage with ease, and creates stunning portrait images with an 8dB signal-to-noise ratio.
Sony’s professional camera division produces dual image sensors. The front-facing sensor is tailored for selfies, with autofocus, 2x zoom and a minimum focal length of 15cm for close-up shots. The rear camera is designed for portraits, with a large 1/1.56-inch sensor, HDR capabilities, phase detection, and the ability to shoot 4K video late at night.
You know, the Reno8 Pro 5G is also a phone with a streamlined unibody design, 6.7-inch AMOLED display, 120Hz refresh rate, MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX chipset, 12GB of RAM and 128GB of LPDDR5 storage. The battery is also strong, as Oppo says it can hit 50 percent in an 11-minute charge.
The sleek camera-centric smartphone is available for pre-order now in teal and black for around $800. However, like most Oppo products, its availability begins in the Middle East, with a US launch at some point in the future. If you happen to pre-order, Oppo is giving away a free watch, earbuds, and a few other free gifts. OK
