OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G overview: portrait expert with trendy looks and powerful performance

After much teasing, the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G has finally broken cover in India. Priced at Rs 39,999, this premium smartphone launched alongside the equally enticing Reno7 5G, another excellent offering from OPPO. The Pro variant distinguishes itself by offering a range of truly high-end features that are hard to get in other phones from this price category. Let us give you a complete overview of everything that it brings to the table.

Powerful performance with MediaTek Dimensity 1200-Max chipset

At the heart of the new OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G is the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-MAX chipset. This one-of-a-kind SoC has been created by OPPO in partnership with MediaTek under the latter’s Dimensity 5G Open Resource Architecture program. This allows the Reno7 Pro 5G to offer hardware-level benefits that no other phone in the market can offer, not even the ones that come with the Dimensity 1200 chip inside them.

So what are those added benefits, you ask? First among them is AI Deblur, which enhances the picture quality of your selfies. It identifies blurred faces, if any, and uses smart algorithms to de-blur them instantly. Another exclusive benefit of this SoC is AI-PQ, which enhances HDR effects when playing videos. The feature uses artificial intelligence to distinguish the subject matter on the screen — people, food, grass, sky, buildings, etc. — and then uses different colours, sharpness, and other display effects for optimum output.


All these additions are over and above the high-quality brawn that the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 platform already possesses. It gets a powerful 6nm octa-core processor with one high-end Cortex-A78 Ultra core clocked at 3GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and four efficiency Cortex-A55 cores running at 2GHz. This setup offers 22 percent faster CPU performance and 25 percent better power efficiency compared to last-gen. You also get 12GB worth of RAM which can be expanded to 19GB using OPPO’s RAM expansion technology.

This setup enables the OPPO Reno7 Pro to deliver a silky smooth and lag-free experience that users will love.

Excellent 50MP triple-rear camera setup

The rear camera setup on the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G is headlined by the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor. With its f/1.8 aperture opening and PDAF support, this camera excels at delivering spectacular photographs in all lighting conditions. There is also a special Colour Temperature sensor that provides hardware-level white balance calibration in real-time that helps improve the colour accuracy of the photos.

The 2MP Macro camera in the rear camera array lets you get incredibly close to your subjects to capture stunning shots, while the 8MP ultra-wide camera provides a 119-degree field of view for sharp wide-angle shots. OPPO’s trusted AI Highlight Video finds its place on this phone as well. It uses AI to identify the surroundings and automatically turn on Ultra Night Video or Live HDR so you can record clear and bright videos always.

Some other exciting camera features of the Reno 7 Pro 5G include Dual-View Video for capturing videos from both front and rear cameras, Focus Tracking for locking focus on moving subjects, and an Ultra-Clear 108MP mode for capturing high-resolution photographs that can be zoomed in and cropped without ruining their quality.

Magnificent selfie experience with worlds’ first Sony IMX709 front camera

The OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G is the world’s first phone to come with the 32MP IMX709 sensor from Sony. This RGBW sensor receives 60 percent more light and reduces 30 percent more noise than the standard RGGB sensor, allowing it to deliver flawless selfies in all lighting conditions. The selfie experience is further enhanced by the phone’s DOL-HDR technology that stops your selfies from being spoiled by excessive light. For instance, while any other phone will completely overexpose the shot when there are light-filled areas in your background, this device uses a combination of long and short exposures to extend the shot’s dynamic range and return a magnificent selfie.

Another aspect about the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G that’s worth mentioning is its Smart Wide-Angle feature. It basically identifies the number of people in a group and automatically switches to a wider angle to fit more people. When it’s just you alone, you get all the attention of the sensor. All these features make this a dream device for selfie lovers to own

Capture portrait photos and videos thanks to an industry-leading camera system

OPPO has been outstanding in the portrait game, and the launch of the Reno7 Pro 5G marks another evolution in this department. Both its front and rear cameras have come with exceptional portrait abilities. Those fond of portrait photography will be amazed by the kind of images made possible by these cameras.

They allow up to 25 levels of adjustable blurring, bokeh, and light spot size. You can make all these adjustments even after clicking the photograph. Its special Bokeh Flare technology creates subtle flares from the light sources within the blurred backgrounds, making your photos stand out.

Lastly, the Reno7 Pro 5G gets the AI Color Portrait Video feature from previous phones. It uses AI to automatically sharpen the natural color of your subjects while leaving the surroundings black and white. Overall, the Reno7 Pro 5G is worth buying for experiencing its portrait features alone. But there’s a lot more to the device than just that.

Gorgeous 6.55-inch 90Hz AMOLED display

The exquisitely designed OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G adopts an equally exquisite 6.55-inch 90Hz AMOLED screen with FHD+ resolution. Its stunning 92.8 percent screen-to-body ratio is made possible by its ultra-narrow bezels that are just 1.55mm in size. While this already means great levels of immersion, you’ll also be pleased to know that this is an HDR10+ panel that’s rated to stream Amazon Prime Video content in HDR and Netflix content in HD.

Aircraft-grade Shooting Star design

The OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G is a thing of beauty. The level of precision that has gone into its design is highly visible, especially on its rear surface. Made with Laser Direct Imaging – a technology usually reserved for the semiconductor industry – the back panel boasts of 1.2 million micro-rasters that evoke the look of shooting stars. Both the colours of this phone – Startrails Blue and Starlight Black – are stunning. And the fact that it’s just 7.45mm thick and about 180gm in weight makes holding the device an incredibly comfortable experience.

The best part about this battery is its support for 65W SUPERVOOC charging, which allows it to go from 0 to 100 percent in just 31 minutes.
