In tandem, OPPO also launches three new, state-of-the-art IoT products: the OPPO Pad Air, OPPO Band 2, and the OPPO Enco Buds2.
Ethan Xue, President of OPPO MEA, said, "We are excited to announce the launch of our latest Reno8 Series and new line-up of exciting IoT products including the brilliant OPPO Pad Air, our first tablet which aims to create a smarter life and seamless cross-scenario experience for users across the region.

The Reno8 Series redefines the realms of mobile experience across performance, design, technology, and imaging, and we cannot wait to see how the market responds."
Designed to be a Portrait Expert in every aspect, the Reno8 Pro 5G is equipped with OPPO's first self-developed imaging NPU, MariSilicon X, elevating the device to deliver a series of innovative camera features. The Reno8 Pro 5G also features a Streamlined Unibody Design, smooth flagship-level performance, and fantastic all-round experience through ColorOS 12.1.
Ultra-clear portraits in any situation
As a Portrait Expert, the Reno8 Pro 5G brings ultra-clear portrait photos and videos to all-new heights with its powerful hardware foundations.
At the core of this unrivalled portrait experience is OPPO's first self-developed imaging NPU, MariSilicon X, which provides an immense level of dedicated computing power for the Reno8 Pro 5G's imaging features, all while consuming even less power. Built on cutting-edge 6nm process technology and industry-leading DSA architecture, MariSilicon X is able to deliver an incredible 18 trillion operations per second (18 TOPS) of dedicated image processing power. With this large computing power and high data throughput, MariSilicon X can perform lossless real-time 4K AI processing and up to 20bit HDR fusion in the RAW domain, while achieving up to 8dB signal-to-noise ratio for images. Through its ability to directly process images in the lossless RAW domain, MariSilicon X acts as an unmatched foundation for the Reno8 Pro 5G's ultimate imaging experience.
The Reno8 Pro 5G's stellar hardware lineup also includes Dual Sony Flagship Sensors in the form of the new generation IMX709 RGBW front camera sensor and the flagship IMX766 main camera sensor:
- The IMX709 sensor introduces an all-new RGBW pixel array to capture more light without reducing colour information. Together with DOL-HDR technology embedded in the sensor, the IMX709 enables the Reno8 Pro 5G's front camera to easily capture high-quality selfies in any scenario. The IMX709 also supports AutoFocus on the front camera for the first time, enabling 2x zoom when taking selfies. With a minimum focal distance of 15cm, it's possible to capture super close-up shots using the Reno8 Pro 5G's front camera, offering unprecedented detail in selfies.
- On the rear camera, the IMX766 delivers an enhanced portrait experience with its large 1/1.56-inch sensor size and features like All Pixel Omni-Directional PDAF and DOL-HDR.
Powered by MariSilicon X and the Dual Sony Flagship Sensors, the Reno8 Pro 5G provides a flagship-level portrait camera experience. It is also the first time that 4K video shooting has been brought to a smartphone at this price point - with 4K Ultra Night Video, users can capture ultra-clear portrait videos at night, while 4K Ultra HDR Video optimizes portrait videos taken in the presence of strong backlight. Both features can significantly improve image quality and colour expression in pictures, avoiding over-exposure in bright areas while retaining the maximum amount of detail in dark areas. For those who want to add movie-quality effects to their photos and videos, the Reno8 Pro 5G also offers features like Portrait Mode, Hyperlapse, and 960fps AI Slow-motion.
Eye-catching, comfortable design with a unique premium streamlined unibody
For the first time on the Reno series, the Reno8 Pro 5G features a flagship-level Streamlined Unibody Design, eliminating the standalone camera 'bump' commonly seen on other smartphones. The stunning seamless design makes the phone comfortable to hold while preventing dust from getting trapped around the camera area. Also, on the rear of the phone, the Prominent Binocular Camera Module and Ring Flash featured in the camera area highlight the phone's powerful camera features through their distinct design.
On the front of the device, the Reno8 Pro 5G features a 6.7" Ultra-Clear AMOLED display with a 93.4% screen-to-body ratio, support for 1 billion colours, and a 120Hz refresh rate for a guaranteed smoother and more comfortable viewing experience with enhanced interaction. The display is also HDR10+, SGS Low Motion Blur and SGS Low Blue Light certified, and HDR certified for Amazon and Netflix.
Measuring just 7.34 mm in thickness, and weighing just 183 g, the Reno8 Pro 5G is the thinnest Reno series handset yet and will be available in two new stunning colour finishes – Glazed Green and Glazed Black.
Flagship-level, all-round smooth performance
Powering the Reno8 Pro 5G's smooth performance is the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX integrated 5G SoC. Built on the industry-leading 5nm process, the octa-core SoC delivers more powerful performance with even lower power consumption. The Reno8 Pro 5G comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of ROM storage. The handset also introduces the highly efficient LPDDR5 read and write storage management system for the first time on the Reno series.
To help users enjoy its all-round flagship-level performance for longer, the Reno8 Pro 5G delivers a faster, safer, and more reliable experience. Among these, super-fast 80W SUPERVOOCTM is able to charge the Reno8 Pro 5G's 4500mAh battery to 50% in only 11 minutes, and a 5-minute charge is enough to provide two hours of mobile gaming. Meanwhile, with the Battery Health Engine's help, the Reno8 Pro 5G's battery lifespan can be extended up to 1600 charge/discharge cycles3, or roughly four years of average use. Further to this, with the inclusion of OPPO's 5-Layer Charging Protection, the Reno8 Pro 5G has passed TÜV Rheinland's Safe Fast-Charge System Certification in recognition of its outstanding overall safety performance.
Additionally, OPPO's Ultra-Conductive Cooling System applies industry-leading materials to the Reno8 Pro 5G in order to significantly improve heat dissipation performance and ensure that the phone can run smoothly at all times within a comfortable temperature range.
Powered by the flagship-level hardware, the Reno8 Pro 5G users can enjoy an all-round smooth experience that has been awarded an A Rating in TÜV SÜD's 36-Month Fluency test.
For mobile gamers, the Reno8 Pro 5G is also packed full of system-level optimizations tailored to gaming. 90Hz high-refresh mode for PUBG Mobile enables a more immersive gaming experience, while features like Ultra Touch Response and Background Update deliver consistently smooth gameplay.
Tying this all together is ColorOS 12.1 — the gateway to a smarter, smoother, and safer smartphone experience. Features like Air Gestures and Multi-Screen Connect help to dramatically improve productivity, enabling more intelligent and convenient ways of working. Highly imaginative Omoji also gives users more creative ways to personalize their phone and operating system. To ensure user privacy and safety, ColorOS 12.1 comes with features like Anti-peeping for Notifications, Require Password to Power Off, and Recent Tasks Protection, all of which have contributed to the Reno8 Pro 5G being awarded authoritative third-party privacy and security certifications, including ePrivacy, ISO27001, ISO277001 and more.
