Ushering in the new era of ultra-fast tech: OPPO Reno8 is everything you could have asked from your smartphone

The smartphone market is always on the lookout for a revolutionary product that can set a new benchmark for the entire industry. When it comes to superfast smartphones that are aesthetically designed and deliver impeccable camera performance, OPPO smartphones lead the way. One fine example of OPPO’s leadership in smartphone technology is its latest avatar- the OPPO Reno8.

Priced at Rs. 29,999 and available for sales across Flipkart, OPPO Store and Mainline Retail Outlets from July 25, the OPPO Reno8 delivers ultra-fast tech at a great price. Let’s take a deep dive into the OPPO Reno8 and understand how it is everything you could have asked for from your smartphone.

OPPO Reno8: Fast charging done right!


You have successfully cast your vote

Smartphone charging and battery are critical factors in the purchase decision for any consumer today. The OPPO Reno8 delivers superb tech in this department. The smartphone has a massive 4500mAh battery, but the icing on the cake is that it supports a whopping 80W SUPERVOOC fast charge. As per OPPO, you can hit the 50% mark in only 11 minutes & 100% in just 28 minutes. When lab-tested by TÜV Rheinland, a mere 5 minutes of charge was enough to keep gaming for 2 hours straight. This leaves more than enough charging power in the hands of consumers to enjoy an interrupted smartphone experience.

And in case you are wondering if fast charging can harm your smartphone’s battery, then OPPO has added its self-designed Battery Health Engine (BHE) technology that solves any degradation problem to extend battery life. It intelligently controls the charging current and voltage through real-time monitoring. The BHE can extend the battery lifespan to as many as 1,600 charge/discharge cycles that can easily make your battery last 4 years. The device also gets the famous 5-Layer Charging Protection for all-around protection for parts and the process. Charging and charging protection is a definite plus on the Reno8 and one of the top reasons to consider this device.

OPPO Reno8: Designed to perfection


With each iteration of the Reno series smartphones, OPPO has delivered a contemporary design that stands the test of time. Maintaining this delicate balance between contemporary and fresh design concepts is the Reno8. The Reno8’s design philosophy is such that it attracts eyeballs, yet it feels familiar in hand. The smartphone takes cues from the streamlined unibody design. OPPO merged the camera module and the back cover in unison, which looks seamless. The Reno8 sports an ultra-slim body measuring 7.67mm in thickness and weighs just about 179g. Another functional aspect of the design is the camera sensors and flash form circles of different sizes in an orderly and streamlined design that maximizes imaging performance on the Reno8. The smartphone comes in two new OPPO Glow colors – Shimmer Gold and Shimmer Black, both of which are stunning to look at.

OPPO Reno8: Performance is the key


The OPPO Reno8 is not just a gorgeous device but a super performer as well. There are three critical aspects of the OPPO Reno8 that make it a performance champion. First, the OPPO Reno8 comes with MediaTek Dimensity 1300 6nm process, an Octa-Core processor that can easily handle any task you throw at it. Having already proven its mettle, this processor packs enough punch to give you a smooth experience. The Dimensity 1300 is an incredibly efficient chip that increases performance by 40% and power efficiency by 20% over the previous generations.

Second is the future-ready capability of the Reno8 as MediaTek Dimensity 1300 5G-integrated SoC delivers robust 5G connectivity and ultimate computing power. Last but not least is gaming-related advancements. As gaming sometimes can significantly heat up the device, OPPO has increased the total cooling area by 16.8% compared to the previous build using a much bigger Super-conductive VC Liquid Cooling System, the Reno8 can remain cool while playing games or watching videos.


The OPPO Reno8 comes with an 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM and offers plenty of performance for everyday use. You also get OPPO’s proprietary super-fast solution to improve unlocking speeds by 71%, providing a faster and more convenient fingerprint unlock. Supporting the super-efficient performance on the OPPO Reno8 is the TÜV SÜD 36-Month Fluency Rating A certification that shows that the device is capable of delivering top-notch performance even after 3 years of usage.

OPPO Reno8: A camera expert indeed


OPPO Reno8 rocks a 50MP flagship Sony IMX766 sensor on the rear that can take your photos and videos to the next level. OPPO’s done a fab job of making both hardware and software better with this one. The smartphone can produce gorgeous portrait videos and photos, especially at night, thanks to its upgraded portrait functionality in both hardware and software.


50 MP Main Camera Sony IMX766 Sensor: The 1/1.56-inch large IMX766 sensor features 1μm-sized pixels and can be doubled to 2μm using OPPO’s Quadra Binning algorithm. This enables the camera to capture more light and improves the clarity of the images. Additionally, the camera has DOL-HDR technology, which increases the video’s dynamic range with the perfect balance of brightness and shadows. Now, when it comes to everyday usage, the camera can shoot breathtaking shots, whether you are posing in front of a sunset or moonlight.

32MP Sony IMX709 RGBW Sensor: For selfies, the Reno8 comes with a 32MP Sony IMX709 RGBW Sensor. This sensor features a revolutionary pixel array design that introduces white pixels not found in traditional RGGB sensors. Paired with OPPO’s Quadra Binning Algorithm, this RGBW sensor receives 60% more light and reduces 35% more noise than the standard RGGB sensor. What this translates to is that you will get crystal clear selfies even when the sun goes down, and every portrait selfie video will look dynamically brighter and sharper.

Vivid Ultra Night Video: Many users have struggled in the past to capture sharp videos during the night. With the OPPO Reno8, you get the impressive Ultra Night Video feature that automatically detects ambient light. The camera auto-tunes image quality and color expression to deliver images with sharp facial features even in low light conditions. What’s interesting about the Ultra Night Video is that it is enabled by default. This way, you don’t have to fiddle manually to adjust the settings.

Next level clarity with Ultra HDR Video: Another bane for many smartphone users has been shooting silhouette videos. But the Ultra HDR Video feature on the Reno8 takes care of such worries. The Ultra HDR Video is turned on automatically whenever the sensor detects a scene where the light and dark are too polarizing. The Ultra HDR Video feature comes into play to preserve the natural color of the scene, churning out vivid and clear portrait videos every time.

Let your portrait shots shine with Night Portrait: Shooting portrait shots, especially at night, is a challenge that most smartphones have failed. But Reno8 has a trick up its sleeve. Its capable sensor can perform parallel R/G/B three-channel AI noise reduction in RAW domain. This leads to the creation of ultra-clear nighttime portraits. But what makes the experience better is the faster processing which gives back nearly 40% faster image previews.


All other camera features: Apart from clear night portrait shots, the Reno8 can snap some pro-level portraits on the fly. There are as many as 22 levels of adjustment to tweak around for you to get the right size of the bokeh light spots on the background. The Hyperlapse mode allows you to create time-lapse videos while in motion. Another cool feature is the amazing 960fps AI Slow-motion mode. This allows you to take movie-like slo-mo videos. On the rear of the smartphone, there’s a dedicated 8MP Wide angle lens with a 112° field of view & a 2MP Macro camera for close-up shots.

Is OPPO Reno8 a steal of a deal?

The OPPO Reno8 has a lot going for it. From modern, streamlined unibody design to dual flagship Sony IMX766 (rear) and Sony IMX709 (front) camera sensors, the device has it all. With superfast 80W SUPERVOOCTM charging speeds powered by the powerful MediaTek Dimensity 1300 processor, the device is a delight for users. For movie marathons and binge-watch sessions, the smartphone delivers a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, and ColorOS 12.1 takes care of enhanced productivity, personalization, and privacy. The OPPO Reno8 is now available on Flipkart, OPPO Store and Mainline Retail Outlets for Rs.29,999 for the sole 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM variant.

Alongside OPPO Reno8, the world’s leading smart-device brand also launched its first pad, OPPO Pad Air, at Rs. 16,999 for the 4 GB+64GB version and Rs. 19,999 for the 4GB +128GB version. This all-in-one tablet will take care of all your education and entertainment requirements. It combines a power-efficient ‘6nm’ octa-core Snapdragon 680 processor—with AI System Booster 2.1—for smooth multitasking.


The OPPO Pad Air features an attractive design aesthetic with its ultra-thin body, industry-first Sunset Dune 3D texture, and proprietary OPPO Glow to provide a fingerprint-proof, scratch-free cover for a smooth and durable feel.

The OPPO Pad Air is the only tablet in its price segment that allows you to switch from your OPPO handset’s display to its larger screen. The OPPO Pad Air goes on sale from July 23, 2022, onwards on Flipkart, OPPO Store and Mainline Retail Outlets.
