UNLIMITED IMAGING POWER BRINGS GORGEOUS PORTRAITS TO LIFE
Since the launch of the first OPPO Reno smartphone, Reno users worldwide have been capturing the world around them in stunning, professional-quality portraits. Now, with the new Reno7 Pro 5G, this portrait experience enters a new realm of possibilities.
Powering Reno7 Pro 5G's impressive imaging capabilities is the mighty Flagship Portrait Camera System, comprising a 50MP main camera with flagship IMX766 sensor, alongside an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a dedicated color temperature sensor on the back of the device. On the front, the 32MP front camera is powered by a next generation flagship RGBW sensor — the IMX709 — which has been co-developed by OPPO and Sony and makes its world debut on Reno7 Pro 5G.
The IMX709 sensor introduces an all-new RGBW pixel array which contains additional white pixels not found in traditional RGGB image sensors. When combined with OPPO's self-developed Quadra Binning algorithm, the sensor is able to boost light intake without reducing color information. Furthermore, the Quadra Binning algorithm has been embedded directly onto the IMX709, greatly improving cross-platform compatibility and image processing efficiency.
Thanks to these innovations, the Reno7 Pro 5G with the IMX709 is able to capture 60% more light than standard RGGB sensors while reducing noise by up to 35%. This enables the Reno7 Pro 5G to capture significantly clearer and brighter images in low-light conditions, making portraits more expressive in both photo and video through enhancements to skin, texture, and contrast. Together with the industry-first use of DOL-HDR on the front camera of a smartphone, Reno7 Pro 5G's front camera enables users to easily capture high-quality selfie videos, and Smart Wide-angle helps them capture a wide range of selfies with ease.
On the rear of the phone, the main camera features a flagship IMX766 sensor with a large 1/1.56-inch sensor size and advanced technologies including All Pixel Omni-Directional PDAF and DOL-HDR, guaranteeing an enhanced portrait experience from the ground up.
Taking full advantage of this flagship-level hardware foundation, the Reno7 Pro 5G comes packed with a series of impressive imaging features:
- Portrait Mode intelligently applies a depth of field effect to the image background, including beautiful bokeh light spots, to make portrait subjects stand out further. Users can choose 25 adjustable aperture sizes from F0.95 to F16 creating original-yet-realistic portrait photos.
- AI Highlight Video can automatically detect the ambient light in a scene and make optimizations accordingly. With a 3D LUT (3D Lookup Table) color tuning algorithm, AI Highlight Video provides more accurate color tuning to enhance skin tone and help subjects stand out in portrait videos.
- Bokeh Flare Portrait Video enables users to capture portrait videos with bokeh light spots on the background, like the bokeh effect of DSLR camera. On Reno7 Pro 5G, Bokeh Flare Portrait Video has been updated to further enhance skin tone, especially in dark environments, against solid-colored backgrounds, or when the color of the background is close to the color of the main subject's skin tone. As a result, portrait subjects stand out from the background while maintaining a natural appearance.
- AI Color Portrait comes to add creative sparks to your videos and photos, by applying black and white filters to the background while retaining the original color of the portrait subject, creating a strong contrasting color effect that highlights the main subject and draws in viewer attention.
Reno7 Pro 5G also includes a series of features to help users take clearer photos and videos with enhanced creativity. Focus Tracking, Dual-View Video, Flash Snapshot, and other features all give users the creative tools to express themselves and record special moments in their own style.
UNLIMITED STYLE WITH STUNNING OPPO GLOW
Inheriting the hallmark OPPO Glow design of the Reno series, the Reno7 Pro 5G comes in two fresh new colors: Startrails Blue and Starlight Black.
In addition to using the exclusive OPPO Glow manufacturing process, Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) technology has been applied to the back case of Reno7 Pro 5G, making it the first time that LDI has been used on the exterior of a smartphone. On the back cover of Reno 7 Pro 5G Startrails Blue, 1.2 million micro-rasters have been etched onto the photoresist-coated AG glass with the sophisticated LDI technology. The overall visual effect is similar to thousands of comets flashing across the sky, leaving long trails of light in their wake.
Bringing even more light to the back cover is the Orbit Breathing Light, an industry-first, 3D circular light surrounding the camera area. The Orbit Breathing Light gently emits light when receiving incoming calls or notifications, adding an even dreamier atmosphere to the back cover of the phone.
On the front of the phone, a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate delivers a super-smooth and comfortable viewing experience. The display is HDR10+ certified for a more vivid and higher quality visual experience while also being Amazon Prime Video HD&HDR certified for high-quality visual content.

When used with RAM Expansion technology developed by OPPO, the phone's original 12GB of RAM can be supplemented with a massive 7GB by temporarily allocating ROM, enabling multiple memory-heavy apps to be run simultaneously with less lag.
With 65W SUPERVOOCTM, the 4500mAh large battery of the Reno7 Pro 5G can be fully charged in as little as 31 minutes; meanwhile a 5-minute charge offers 4 hours of movie playback. To deliver a better all-round mobile gaming experience, a top-of-the-line X-Axis Linear Motor has been added to create more immersion. AI Frame Rate Stabilizer will evaluate the frame rate in real time and provide stabilization accordingly to ensure consistently smooth gameplay.
UNLIMITED CONVENIENCE WITH THE FRESH-NEW COLOR OS 12

The new Omoji feature also creates new avenues for personalization with a variety of customization options and real-time facial tracking through OPPO's advanced Face Capture Algorithm.
