OPPO today announces more details about its soon-to-be-launched OPPO Reno8 Series in India. Both smartphones – the Reno8 Pro and the Reno8 pack powerful MediaTek SoCs along with proprietary technologies in battery charging, device cooling, and hardware-software optimization. Check out all the details below.
OPPO Reno8 Pro with MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX
The OPPO Reno8 Pro is backed by the 5nm MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX that delivers a 25% improvement in CPU power efficiency compared to 6nm-class Dimensity chips. In addition, this octa-core SoC includes four 2.85GHz Arm Cortex-A78 super cores and the powerful Arm Mali-G610 MC6 graphics core for an extra 20% speed boost over the Dimensity 8000 SoC.
Additionally, MediaTek’s HyperEngine 5.0 gaming technologies provide optimizations in the form of the latest AI-VRS graphics enhancement, second-generation Wi-Fi/Bluetooth coexistence technology, and Bluetooth LE Audio technology with Dual-Link True Wireless Stereo Audio that lowers the connection latency for wireless earbuds. The SoC’s Imagiq ISP is clocked at 5Gpixel/s to allow for best-in-class photo and video capture.
It can snatch three exposures per frame for accurate results in HDR, and it even supports two cameras recording simultaneously, which means you can shoot from the smartphone’s front and rear cameras simultaneously. The Dimensity 8100-MAX houses the 5th gen. MediaTek APU 580 offers class-leading power-effective performance in tasks such as AI-multimedia, AI-camera, and social video experiences. This upgrade produces an impressive 2.75X speed boost over previous generation Dimensity chips with APU 3.0.
OPPO Reno8 Pro with MediaTek Dimensity 1300
The OPPO Reno8 is powered by the latest MediaTek Dimensity 1300 SoC over the MediaTek Dimesity 900 in the Reno7. The new ‘6nm’ octa-core CPU boasts a 3GHz Arm Cortex-A78 ‘ultra-core’ that kicks in to provide peak responsiveness in apps and games when it is needed the most. The SoC comprises three premium Cortex-A78 cores, four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores, and the same HyperEngine 5.0 gaming technologies found on the Dimensity 8100-MAX.
The SoC is backed by its unique AI-camera capabilities, including AI noise reduction (AI-NR) in panoramic captures at night and HDR. 4K HDR videos are captured with a 40% greater dynamic range when compared to standard HDR. Both SoCs – the Dimensity 8100-MAX and the Dimesity 1300—support 5G connectivity along with MediaTek MiraVision that comes with enhanced HDR10+ video playback and even upgrades video streams on the fly to convert SDR content to HDR using AI Video with dynamic per-frame picture tuning for precise image quality.
OPPO Reno8 Series Battery
Both smartphones—the OPPO Reno8 Pro and the Reno8 are backed by a 4500mAh battery with OPPO’s 80W SUPERVOOC Flash Charge technology. The battery is tested and certified by TÜV Rheinland as a safe and quick charging system that allows for a 50% recharge with just 11 minutes recharge, and a five-minute recharge is enough for two hours of mobile gaming.
Furthermore, the Reno8 series comes with OPPO’s exclusive Battery Health Engine (BHE) technology, which is the outcome of a three-year R&D into lithium-ion batteries and has resulted in 20+ pending patents. These phones are also backed by OPPO’s proprietary Smart Battery Health Algorithm (BHE) and the Battery Healing Technology which intelligently controls the charging current and voltage through real-time monitoring.
The Reno8 series features five-layer charging protection – Adapter overload protection, Quick charging condition identification protection, Interface overload protection, Battery current/voltage overload protection, and battery fuse protection that protects the entire charging cycle, right from the adapter to the cable and the battery.
According to OPPO, tests at the OPPO Research Institute show that Reno8 phone batteries with BHE can retain 80% of their original capacity after as many as 1,600 charge cycles. This charging cycle is double the industry average of just 800 charge cycles. It ensures batteries stay in good condition for around four years of typical use to make it the longest smartphone battery lifespan on the market. Notably, the batteries can last up to 1.55 days of regular use on a single full charge.
OPPO Reno8 Pro Cooling System
The Reno8 Pro comes with OPPO’s Ultra-Conductive Cooling System that adopts Ultra-Conductive Graphite, a new material that improves cooling performance by 45% over traditional graphite. The graphite sheets are used for heat dissipation both under the display and in the back cover, to provide a total cooling surface area of 10957mm2 (4% larger than the previous generation).
OPPO also combined the ultra-conductive graphite with an aluminium middle frame to ensure that the OPPO Reno8 Pro does not heat up when playing games, watching videos, and taking photos. Also, a copper foil, with high thermal conductivity, is used both under the display and in the back cover to ensure stable performance and to dissipate heat during charging even while maintaining a large charging current for higher charging efficiency.
OPPO Reno8 Cooling System
The Reno8 comes with OPPO’s Super-Conductive VC Liquid Cooling System that covers 14644 mm2, an increase of 16.8% over the Reno7. The newly added Vapour Chamber covers an area of 2343mm2 and is 1.5x more efficient than the previous generation’s heat pipe solution. For the Reno8’s middle frame, OPPO employs a super-conductive aluminium alloy that increases the thermal conductivity by 13.5%.
TÜV SÜD certification
Both Reno8 Series smartphones, after undergoing nearly 500 tests, met the certification requirements and obtained the TÜV SÜD 36-Month Fluency Rating Mark. TÜV SÜD not only evaluated the devices’ fluency at the very beginning of use but also tested the degree of fluency attenuation after 36 months of use. The higher the level, the smoother a product runs, both at the beginning and after 36 months of use.
OPPO Reno8 Series Software Updates
OPPO has also confirmed that both OPPO Reno8 Pro and Reno8 smartphones will be getting 2 Annual OS updates and also 4-years of security updates. More information about the operating system will be shared during the launch event. The OPPO Reno9 Series is slated to launch on 18th July 2022 from 6 PM onwards.
