OPPO’s Much-Anticipated Reno8 Series Launches In Australia

Leading global smart device brand OPPO today announced the launch of the new Reno8 series in Australia, with devices going on sale at local retailers from tomorrow.

The Reno Series continues to garner popularity on a global stage. As of the third quarter of 2021, OPPO’s Reno series ranked first globally among the ‘New Age smartphone families’.

Speaking on the new launch, OPPO Australia’s Managing Director, Michael Tran said, “we’re excited to be bringing the latest generation of our Reno devices to Australia with the Reno8 Series. Since launching the Reno series in early 2019, OPPO has shipped over 80 million Reno devices worldwide.

“Our OPPO Reno series is known for featuring impressive camera capabilities and unique designs. Ushering in our new generation, the Reno8 Pro 5G and Reno8 5G employ the latest camera innovations for Aussies to capture their best moments even in the most challenging lighting conditions.”

Both devices feature Dual Sony Flagship Sensors, including the 32MP IMX709 RGBW sensor for the selfie camera, which enables users to capture clearer selfies in low light, and the 50MP IMX766 sensor in the rear for flagship-level camera performance.

Reno8 Pro 5G houses the MariSilicon X imaging NPU, enabling unrivalled videography capabilities in its class. MariSilicon X enables 4K Ultra Night Video for ultra-clear, brighter, and more detailed videos at night, as well as 4K Ultra HDR Video to keep details in both highlights and shadows.

Flagship charging speeds with incredible battery lifespan
80W SUPERVOOC on Reno8 Pro 5G and Reno8 5G empowers users to charge the 4500 mAh battery to 50% in around 10 minutes, and to 100% in around 30 minutes. With Battery Health Engine, Reno8 series devices keep up to 80% of their original capacity after 1,600 full charge cycles, which is twice the industry standard (800 cycles), making it the longest smartphone battery lifespan on the market.

Light and streamlined unibody design for a smooth hand feel
The new Reno8 series features a streamlined unibody design that integrates both the camera module and back cover for a smooth hand feel.

Reno8 Pro 5G is the thinnest Reno series handset yet at only 7.34mm thickness and feels light in the hand at 183g. It comes in the gorgeous Glazed Green and Glazed Black colour variants. At only 179g and 7.67mm thickness, Reno8 5G is available in Shimmer Gold and Shimmer Black and features OPPO Glow for a stunning gradient look and fewer fingerprints.

Both Reno8 Pro 5G and Reno8 5G feature high refresh rate AMOLED displays. Reno8 Pro 5G has the slimmest bezels in any Reno for a more immersive display experience.

Powerful performance that lasts
The combination of the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX SoC, Ultra-Conductive Cooling System, together with fast 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage, makes Reno8 Pro 5G the most powerful Reno ever. More importantly, Reno8 Pro 5G offers industry-leading sustained performance without overheating to ensure a smooth and steady gaming experience.

Reno8 5G features the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 SoC and is equipped with the Super-Conductive Vapour Chamber (VC) Liquid Cooling System for improved cooling performance.

New Additions Join the Reno8 Lite 5G
The new Reno8 Series additions join the Reno8 Lite 5G which OPPO launched into the Australian market earlier in the year in June.

The Reno8 Lite 5G is powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 695 5G Mobile Platform and complemented by the industry-first Dual Orbit Lights. Together with OPPO’s signature OPPO Glow design, Reno8 Lite 5G is a 5G smartphone with professional portrait photography capabilities designed to capture diverse lifestyles.

Reno8 Lite 5G features a 64MP High-Res Main Camera, a 2MP Macro Camera, a 2MP Depth Camera, and a 16MP Front Camera. Alongside a series of impressive imaging features, such as Bokeh Flare Portrait, Selfie HDR, AI Palettes, AI Color Portrait, Portrait Retouching and other features designed for creativity.
