Offering an outstanding camera configuration and AI-enhanced imaging features, Reno7 Series 5G is the portrait expert capable of capturing DSLR-like portraits through features like Portrait Mode, Bokeh Flare Portrait Video, and more. The Reno7 Pro 5G camera capabilities are even enhanced further by the new Flagship Portrait Camera System built around two flagship imaging sensors- the IMX709 and the IMX766. 


Professional portrait photographer- Alex Tan accentuates, “the Reno7 Series 5G makes portrait photography easy and accessible to everyone. It encapsulates everything you need in producing a good portrait. A good portrait should be able to combine the background and lighting, making the subject stand out vividly with all emotions being captured. And the OPPO Reno7 Series 5G did it.”

While agreeing with Alex Tan about the powerful portraiture capturing capabilities of the Reno7 Series 5G, Amelia Henderson added, “alongside its professional camera capabilities, the Reno7 Series 5G’s design is also aesthetically pleasing. OPPO has brought the ultimate ‘meteor shower’ effect on the exterior design of the device, making you feel like holding meteor shower in your palm.” The Reno7 Series 5G also features the iconic OPPO Glow design with the Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) effect transferred on the exterior of a smartphone for the first time ever in the industry, giving it an even more refined physical texture and eye-catching appearance.


For Fiera Fendi, who made a name for herself in mobile gaming, the Reno7 Series 5G is a powerhouse that does not compromise. She said, “the Reno7 Series 5G is now my ultimate companion. It not only ensures smooth gaming performance with its powerful chipset and large storage, its long-lasting battery and PC Connect feature also allow me to stay connected and work easily.” With enhanced efficiency and productivity from newly launched ColorOS 12, Reno7 Series 5G is the ultimate weapon for users to unleash their unlimited style in portrait.

Leveraging OPPO’s AI capabilities, Reno7 Series 5G is equipped with powerful portrait functionality that empowers users to express every side of their personality through more professional portraits.

On the back of the phone, Reno7 5G features a 64MP HD main camera, a 118-degree Ultra Wide-Angle camera, and a macro camera which can focus on subjects as close as 4cm away.

Startrails Blue has been created by the innovative use of Laser Direct Imaging manufacturing process where OPPO has applied LDI processing to draw 1.2 million micro-rasters, and each raster has been created with a precision of just 20 microns,giving Startrails Blue the impression of a meteor shower gliding across the back cover of the phone. Dual-texture, dual-coating layer infuses the phone with two layers of color, giving Startrails Blue multiple dynamic color changes from cold to warm in just one-color finish.

Bringing even more light to the back cover of the Reno7 Pro 5G 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.
