Adding to its aesthetic design is the One-Piece Quad Camera that is built into the rear of the Reno5 Z 5G. In line with the design concept, all four cameras are covered by a single piece of Gorilla Glass 5 which keeps it elegant and smooth. Cutting edge etching technology adds texture to the glass surface, creating a sense of depth which shimmers under different lighting to add an elegant and classy look.

In combination, these four cameras allow users to be video and photography experts with little effort.
A brand new Dual-view Video enables both the front and rear cameras to work simultaneously, effortlessly stitching the shooter and the subject in the same video frame – ideal for vloggers who always want to remain in action. Other features include HDR Video which delivers clearer more balanced lighting in situations where the light contrast is high, Focus Lock so the recording automatically follows the subject of the video even when the camera has significant movement, and Ultra Night Video which leverages proprietary algorithms that ensure more dynamic nighttime videos and photos.
The Reno5 Z 5G also establishes itself as the photography expert in any scenario with AI-powered features that allow users to master every single moment.
New features like AI Scene Enhancement 2.0, Dynamic Bokeh, and Night Plus work together to automatically capture more clear, beautiful photos and videos even when light contrasts and low light situations can be challenging. Just as useful are continued features that have proven indispensable like AI Night Flare Portrait, AI Color Portrait, AI Beautification 2.0, Ultra Steady Video, and 4K Video all add to the ease with which users can capture expert looking images and videos.
Faster and Immersive Gaming Experience
As with every generation of the Reno Series, there is a clear focus on balancing work and play, and it's no different with Reno5 Z 5G.
The new Reno5 Z 5G truly shines when it comes to gaming, thanks to innovative hardware and exclusive software powered by the ColorOS 11.1 that is designed to deliver a more immersive and fluid gaming experience. Gamer Mode frees gamers from unwanted distraction by temporarily disabling alarms, notifications, incoming calls, gesture controls. Also, Quick Startup allows users to return to a game quickly with one tap within 24 hours after exiting the game without waiting for minute-long loading times and videos. Finally, Game Floating Window allows users to keep a game running in a floating window so they can monitor their game and return to it anytime.
Faster and Efficient Workflow
Enabling users to get the most out of the powerful hardware foundation, Reno5 Z 5G comes installed with OPPO's ColorOS 11.1. It provides rich UI customisation, greater efficiency, unparalleled smoothness, and strengthened privacy sought by OPPO users. Reno5 Z 5G users can design their own always-on display and dark-mode to truly make the phone their own. Further innovative features such as FlexDrop and Three-finger Translate with Google Lens significantly increase productivity.
