OPPO Reno6 5G overview: India’s first MediaTek Dimensity 900 powered smartphone

The OPPO Reno6 5G has come out all guns blazing, like most other smartphones from the company. Headlining its specs sheet is the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset that gives it immense power to run its operations. Moreover, the inclusion of this chipset also means that dual SIM 5G support has made its way into the handset, preparing it for the 5G wave that is soon going to sweep the country. Looking at the kind of features that this OPPO phone brings to the table, it’s surprising that it has been priced at just Rs 29,990. If you’re thinking of buying it, let us give you an overview of its offerings.

Ultimate performance with MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset

MediaTek has stirred up the market with its Dimensity range of chipsets. The MediaTek Dimensity chips allow manufacturers to offer unrivalled 5G connectivity in both budget and flagship smartphones. The fully integrated 5G modem onboard the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset is enhanced by several power-saving technologies to ensure that your phone doesn’t lose much battery while offering lightning-fast wireless speeds. It also enables 5G-CA, which means higher average data speed and a seamless handover between two 5G connection areas across a coverage layer.

The MediaTek Dimensity 900 is a 6nm chipset, which gives it the ability to offer incredible performance and power efficiency. Two of its cores are of the latest Cortex-A78 type and are clocked at 2.4GHz, while the other six are Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. Accompanying this CPU is the Mali-G68 MC4 GPU. Together they allow the OPPO Reno6 5G to deliver silky-smooth performance no matter what it is you’re doing with the phone. Playing high-end games like Battlegrounds Mobile India is going to be a treat with this device.

Extra-quick LPDDR5 memory makes its way into the 8GB RAM modem of the Reno6 5G. You can even expand this memory with the unique RAM Expansion feature that temporarily converts unused storage space into RAM. As for storage itself, you get the fast UFS 3.1 standard that further emboldens this OPPO phone’s already strong specs list.

Killer videography features

The 64MP triple camera array on the back of this phone enables some truly mind-blowing videography features. Top among them is Bokeh Flare Portrait, which expertly creates bokeh spots at varying depths to imitate the look offered by professional cameras. OPPO’s famed AI Highlight Video feature is also present, delivering HDR brilliance in well lit as well as dimly lit environments at the tap of a button. The MediaTek Dimensity 900 supports 4K footage capture. Its exceptional HDR video recording engine and advanced noise reduction also help a great deal in making the Reno6 5G a videography beast, making it an ideal phone for young content creators.

Big battery with incredible fast charging speed

At its heart, the OPPO Reno6 5G carries a large 4,300mAh battery that’s more than enough for all-day usage. And you’ll most probably have lots of juice left at the end of the day for some bedtime browsing. One of the bug concerns with 5G is that it chews through battery life. To solve this issue, the Dimensity 900 chipset comes with MediaTek 5G UltraSave technology that works with both 5G Standalone and non-Standalone networks to ensure your 5G device lasts all day on any network. This, along with other advanced power-saving capabilities of the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset are responsible for the phone’s stellar battery life. And even when the phone does run out of battery, its 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging support ensures that it gets fully charged in just 28 minutes. Yes, you heard that right! 0 to 100 in just 28 minutes. That’s just incredible, and it means you’ll never have to wait for your phone to charge before stepping out of your house.

Gorgeous display

On the front surface of the OPPO Reno6 5G, rests a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display. This stunning panel is blemished only by a tiny punch-hole that holds the phone’s 32MP front camera. This arrangement allows the device to have a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio. Add to that the fact that this display grabs a 90Hz refresh rate and up to 180Hz touch sampling rate, and it becomes a perfect device for those who consume a lot of content or play a lot of games. Also worth pointing out is that this panel benefits a lot from the MiraVision HDR Video Playback & Display technology onboard the MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC, which intelligently adjusts factors like colour, brightness, contrast, sharpness, and dynamic range.

Striking design powered by OPPO Reno Glow technology

The ultra-slim OPPO Reno6 5G is extremely lightweight in nature. But the best part of its design is its stellar appearance, which is the result of the Reno Glow technology that has over 20 patents filed globally. This design offers a subtle shimmering effect to the anti-glare glass on the back of the phone. Both the colours of the device – Aurora and Stellar Black – emit stunningly unique patterns when a light is shined on their rear surfaces in a dark room.
