OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G: Pixels and Beyond

May 10, 2021

There was a time when smartphone cameras offered a simple way to capture moments but as the technology evolves, we are now seeing smartphone cameras that rival some full-pledged cameras and at times perform even better.

The various new improvements across the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G’s camera make it a photography expert, perfectly capturing images and video in excellent detail no matter if it’s day or night. OPPO also made sure that you are getting the best out of the camera of the Reno5 Pro 5G, which is why it has included a variety of tools that will help make an all-scene photography expert.

Camera Hardware Perfected

The Reno5 Pro 5G features a quad-camera setup headlined by the Sony IMX766 50-megapixel sensor. The larger sensor and pixel size mean that it can allow light that makes it perfect for shooting in low light conditions. Images taken at night or even against the light will still look great thanks to the hardware-level HDR Live algorithm that enhances the smartphone backlighting capabilities.

Completing the quad-camera setup is the 13-megapixel telephoto camera, 16-megapixel ultra-wide-camera, and the 2-megapixel macro camera. A front-facing 32-megapixel camera is also present that can provide you with the best quality image and video that works well with selfies and vlogs.

While other smartphone cameras have their own autofocus capabilities, the Reno5 Pro 5G’s camera supports All-Pixel Omni Focus where each pixel is used in focusing the subject, a process that completes in just seconds.  This easily makes the camera capable of any scenario possible, whether it is a selfie, a portrait, a group photo, or even capturing fast-moving objects like in a car race.

Dual-view Video is a new feature on the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G that allows you to capture video from both the front-facing camera and the rear cameras at the same time. This is a perfect solution that lets you capture two moments at the same time.

Harnessing the Power of AI

With the power of AI, the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G’s cameras are designed to deliver the best images and videos that are at par or sometimes better than what dedicated cameras offer. With Live HDR and Ultra Night Video, you can now take night shots that are just as bright when taken in daylight.

Have you ever been in a scenario where a perfect moment taking place at night needs to be captured on video – but you end up being disappointed because the video turned out to be noisy and barely viewable? AI Highlight Video combines the power of Live HDR and Ultra Night Video to preserve the detail and clarity of videos that are shot at night.

AI Scene Enhancement also analyses the current scene and automatically applies the right settings so you can just press the shutter button. Taking images of flowers? Colours will be emphasised. Taking portrait shots? Skin tone will be spot on. Taking a landscape image? Details will be preserved.

Of course, if you want to have more tools that you would want to adjust yourself, the native Camera app also has a Pro mode that lets you play with the various camera settings according to your liking.

Cut, Crop, and Edit

But what if you still want to edit the image or even the video that you have taken? OPPO has also taken care of that – part of ColorOS 11.1’s features include a built-in photo editor that you can use to crop, adjust, rotate, or even fix the colours of the image you have taken. All these features are readily available on the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G without having to download a separate app.


Editing video is also a piece of cake thanks to the SoLoop Smart Video Editor. Already pre-installed when you first use the Reno5 Pro 5G, OPPO’s SoLoop has a variety of tools to help make your videos shine. Trim clips, add text, apply filters, and even add background music – SoLoop has everything to help become a pro video editor. In a rush to edit the video you’ve taken? SoLoop can also intelligently edit the videos you have taken so you do not have to break a sweat.

With all these innovative features and functions, it is no wonder that the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G can make a photographer out of anyone. The assortment of available tools is there to aid you in getting the perfect shot every single time. Thanks to the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G, smartphone cameras can now go beyond the pixels.
