The OPPO Reno6 5G is finally here! The global tech brand launched the phone today at a colourful event at Vila Rosa Kempinski.
The phone is in many ways an upgrade of the OPPO Reno 5 which I’ve been using since launch and I can’t wait to experience it. With AI-enhanced video performance, Reno6 5G is an AI portrait expert equipped with a load of industry-leading feature. The smartphone also features OPPO’s Iconic Reno Glow design with ultra-slim retro design, powerful performance from the MediaTek Dimensity 900, and OPPO’s own intelligent ColorOS 11 to make Reno6 5G the best companion for the 5G era.
Reno6 5G features an 64MP AI Triple Camera setup on the back and a 32MP Selfie Camera on the front. Additionally, it has a dedicated color temperature sensor that captures colors more accurately. Based on this powerful hardware foundation, Reno6 5G has a series of AI-enhanced portrait video functions:
Bokeh Flare Portrait Video provides a pioneering cinematic quality bokeh effect for smartphone video. Powered by OPPO’s over-10-million portrait dataset and AI algorithms, Bokeh Flare Portrait Video delivers real-time video processing to capture portrait videos with bokeh light spots on the background, all while keeping the portrait subjects appearing natural and bright. Available on both the front and rear cameras, this dream-like bokeh lighting effect can be applied to your portrait videos with just one click.
AI Highlight Video can automatically detect ambient light and make video optimizations accordingly. Whether you are shooting at night, or with strong backlight in the day, AI Highlight Video helps you to capture clearer, brighter, and more vividly-colored portrait videos.
Portrait Beautification Video on Reno6 5G can perform subtle and natural edits for portrait videos to improve appearances. With state-of-the-art AI algorithms, it can remove one’s unwanted skin blemishes while retaining natural features to highlight individuality. With the ability to recognize up to 193 different facial points in video mode, Reno6 5G allows users to apply beauty effects with better precision, personalization, and authenticity.
Focus Tracking is also introduced on Reno6 5G, enabling enhanced video auto-focusing by identifying and automatically tracking main subjects consistently and steadily.
The Reno6 5G is a powerful phone with many superior features to explore and we shall be looking at more of them in our review once we have used the phone.
