    OPPO Unveils The New OPPO Reno12 and Reno12 Pro

    OPPO has announced the launch of its new AI phones, the OPPO Reno12 and OPPO Reno12 Pro. With these two new phones comes the introduction of an all-new GenAI feature that is set to help users with productivity and creativity.

    Accelerating the adoption of AI phones

    Earlier this year, OPPO outlined its commitment to bring AI capabilities to the masses beyond the constraint of high-end flagship phones. As part of these efforts, OPPO has joined Google, Microsoft, MediaTek, Qualcomm and other partners to accelerate the arrival of a new generation of AI Phones.

    Reno12 and Reno12 Pro introduce a suite of breakthrough GenAI features covering a range of everyday uses. With the newly updated AI Eraser, users can easily remove passing strangers in photos with a simple tap thanks to the feature’s ability to automatically identify unwanted people and objects.

    Both phones also come with two AI features specifically designed to enhance group photos. AI Clear Face gives everyone in a group shot the same star makeover by performing high-definition restoration of details like facial contour, hair, and eyebrows to ensure even those standing further away from the camera are captured with exceptional clarity. AI Best Face meanwhile can automatically identify people in photos with closed eyes and use advanced GenAI technology to reopen these eyes, so no group shot goes to waste.

    For even more imaginative possibilities, AI Studio can create digital avatars or artistic portrait styles from just one single user photo. Users can reimagine themselves as cowboys, stars in a cyberpunk manga, or many other styles leveraging the new GenAI capabilities.

    Alongside photo enhancements, Reno12 and Reno12 Pro also tap into the power of AI to bring added efficiency and creativity. Built on the Google Gemini large language model (LLM), AI Toolbox is a new addition to the smart sidebar that leverages powerful recognition capabilities to understand the content displayed on the screen and recommend AI features accordingly, such as quick social media content generation or content summaries for lengthy articles. In the Recording app, users can now also use the new AI Recording Summary tool to intelligently extract text summaries from a voice record and organize them into notes, with information such as to-do lists, times, locations, and other details highlighted and formatted for improved readability.

    Audaciously sleek, remarkably solid

    Taking the Reno Series firmly into the future on Reno12 and Reno12 Pro is a bold, forward-looking design centred around a space-age silver exterior. The rear glass panel of both models has been crafted with OPPO’s Fluid Ripple Texture, creating a 3D-like sensation of rippling water cascading across a pond. The innovative use of the parallax effect ensures this visual sensation is achieved while maintaining the same mirror-smooth texture and feel that has become a hallmark of the Reno Series.

    In addition to the new silver look, Matte Brown on the Reno12 features a rich cocoa hue in a fingerprint-free finish. On Reno12 Pro, Space Brown features a two-tone matte-gloss design with two halves naturally separated by a chic metallic ribbon running horizontally across the back of the phone.

    On the front of Reno12 Pro, the biggest evolution to the display in Reno Series history arrives in the form of the new Infinite View Screen — one of the most advanced screen technologies currently available on any smartphone. Using a quad micro-curve design, the screen combines the aesthetics of a curved screen with the grip of a flat screen, providing exceptional comfort and fully immersive visuals while significantly reducing the number of accidental touches that occur on the curved edge of the screen.

    Both Reno12 and Reno12 Pro come with a 6.7-inch, 120Hz AMOLED display capable of displaying up to 1.07 billion colours while offering hardware-level low blue light eye protection. Added to this is OPPO’s Splash Touch technology, a proprietary solution that allows the screen to function correctly even when the screen or the user’s hands are wet.

    Keeping this screen shielded on Reno12 is Corning® Gorilla® Glass 7i with its exceptional drop protection. Reno12 Pro meanwhile features Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2 – the toughest protective glass ever to appear on a Reno Series phone, providing ultra-flagship level resistance against impacts, drops, bending, and scratches. With an IP65 rating, both models also provide exceptional dust and water resistance, while critical components across the phone, including openings, speakers, the USB-C port, and the SIM card tray, have been reinforced to make the phones even more waterproof.

    Capture life moments with the AI Portrait Expert

    Equipped with a Sony LYT-600 sensor featuring full-pixel omnidirectional autofocus and OIS, the Main Camera of Reno12 and Reno12 Pro offers faster and more stable focusing for clearer shots. Both models also feature a Portrait Mode with up to 2x zoom for easy capture of stunning bokeh-rich portraits capable of rivalling those taken using professional cameras.

    Reno12 Pro takes this professional portrait experience even further with a 50MP Telephoto Portrait Camera offering up to 2x optical zoom, and a new 50MP Selfie Camera with autofocus and new AI Portrait Retouching effects that allow for real-time adjustments to facial features like face shape, hairline, cheekbones and more when taking portrait-style selfies.

    Both phones feature an enhanced Flash Snapshot, which adjusts the camera exposure process more agilely, allowing photos to capture more realistic lighting effects and natural skin tones. 4K video at 30fps is also available on both the rear and front-facing cameras for stunning high-definition video at four times the resolution of 1080p video.

    Global debuted platform delivers Reno’s best-ever power efficiency

    Reno12 and Reno12 Pro are the first phones to feature the custom 4nm MediaTek Dimensity 7300 Energy For Reno mobile platform. Co-developed by MediaTek and OPPO to deliver exceptional power efficiency, the new octa-core platform consists of four A78 performance cores and four A55 efficiency cores. In-depth collaboration between OPPO and MediaTek on the Dimensity 7300 Energy For Reno has also delivered breakthroughs in SoC, memory and storage performance through the latest ColorOS Trinity Engine.

    By using AI models to identify the current user scenario, Trinity Engine’s updated CPU-Vita engine is able to precisely allocate SoC resources, achieving lower power consumption while ensuring system stability and smoothness.

    The RAM-Vita engine enhances RAM utilisation to accelerate app launch speeds and switches. It can keep active background apps running for an incredible 72 hours without skipping a beat. On top of this, OPPO’s RAM Expansion can be used to convert 12GB of storage into temporary RAM, providing an extra boost of smoothness whenever needed.

    Finally, the updated ROM-Vita engine now performs lossless compression on infrequently used apps, and manages duplicate files to reduce unnecessary storage use, resulting in increased storage space for user files and faster memory read/write speeds.

    Longer battery life, faster charging

    Targeted optimizations to the anode and cathode structure in the battery of Reno12 and Reno12 Pro have helped to create the highest energy density 5,000mAh battery yet on a Reno Series phone, providing extended battery life and over four years of optimal battery condition without increasing the size of the battery or the phones.

    With support for OPPO’s 80W SUPERVOOCTM Flash Charge on both models, this battery can be charged from 1% to 31% in just ten minutes, with a mere 47 minutes needed for a full 100% charge.

    Smooth, seamless and steady connectivity

    Making its way to the Reno Series on both Reno12 and Reno12 Pro is the latest generation of OPPO’s proprietary AI LinkBoost technology. Consisting of nine individual antennas arranged in a 360° surround architecture, AI LinkBoost is able to boost signal reception and optimize network selection using a system-level AI model to perform agile network switching based on the user’s network environment. For the new generation of AI LinkBoost, OPPO has also conducted extensive local testing and optimization in markets worldwide to ensure consistently stable connectivity. This includes improving network latency in areas with weak signal or busy networks, enhancing seamless switch between WiFi and cellular network, and accelerating signal recovery speeds when exiting elevators or basements. With the world’s first TÜV Rheinland High Network Performance Certification, Reno12 Series is validated to deliver a smooth network experience in all tested scenarios for added confidence in its class-leading connected performance.

    For situations like flying, subway commuting, or mountain hiking where mobile network coverage is unavailable, OPPO has introduced BeaconLink to Reno12 and Reno12 Pro. Using proprietary communications protocols, BeaconLink boosts Bluetooth transmission to enable communications at a distance of up to 200 meters, making it possible to place one-to-one voice calls in emergency situations without the need for network coverage.
