What’s up guys, Saf here on SuperSaf TV and this is the brand new OPPO Reno7 Pro. A big thanks to OPPO for getting these to me early. Partnering with me for this article and also sending me a few spares. I wonder what we should do with these. Of course guys we’re going to be giving some of these away. Details of the giveaway will be later on in this article. And you’re going to have to watch this article to enter the giveaway, ’cause there’s going to be a few things that I’m going to drop make sure you stay tuned.
Let’s go ahead get this unboxed and see what it has to offer. So, as well as the device inside the box you do get a SIM card tool, some paperwork, a clear case so you can start using your device right away and have it protected. A USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable and a 65 watt SuperVOOC charger. This is included out of the box, and this isn’t any ordinary charger. This can charge the Reno7 Pro all the way to 100% in just 31 minutes.
What’s OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G
Now let’s get to the device. And here it is, the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G. This is the Startrails Blue color but it’s also available in a Starlight Black. Now, what I noticed right away is how thin and light this is. It’s just around 7.45 millimeters thin and it weighs only 180 grams. That along with its flat edges and its very unique back also make it quite grippy.
Back Of OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G
Now let’s talk about this back. So we have an exclusive OPPO Glow and the industry first application of LDI technology on the back cover of the phone. Now this is a multistage process which involves a UV protective layer to protect the glass back from the etching process. A photo resist layer is then applied along with the OPPO Glow etching effect. And with the help of the LDI technique the OPPO designed Startrails pattern is achieved. The glass is then soaked and sprayed with a special etching solution that reveals the Startrails pattern. And finally the ever-changing color and multi-dimensional textures are achieved by overlaying many different layers. And the result is this really unique looking back, which pretty much changes color depending on the way the light hits it. I really, really do like this.
And then we’ve got a really interesting looking camera module. My favorite thing about this is that we’ve actually got a breathing light that surrounds the camera module and this will glow when you have incoming calls or notifications. It really takes an LED notification to the next level. This is also the first time that OPPO is using coated ceramics to decorate the camera array on the back of the phone, which means it can bear daily wear due to its hardness.
Now let’s turn this around and take a look at the display. So we have a 6.5 inch AMOLED display, which means colors are really vibrant. And this also supports a 90 Hertz refresh rate, which means things are really, really smooth. We’ve got a very high screen to body ratio with really small bezels and a punch out.
Let’s talk about this punch out because this has a 32 megapixel selfie camera with the IMX 709 sensor. And this is a very unique sensor because this is an RGBW sensor. What does that mean? Well, traditional sensors have red, green and blue. The IMX 709 has red, green, blue as well as white. Now these new white pixels can capture the full spectrum of visible light and are more sensitive to light intensity compared to other pixels, allowing the sensor to take in more light as a whole. So big emphasis has been put here on the front facing camera to get really good low light selfies.
Now let’s take a look at the rear facing cameras. So we do have a multiple camera set up. There is a 50 megapixel primary camera, an eight megapixel ultra wide camera. We also have a macro camera and a color temperature sensor. Now the primary camera is using the IMX 766 sensor. This is a large size sensor with around a 1/1.56-inch sensor size, and it includes all pixel omnidirectional PDAF and dull HDR to help improve shooting in backlight situations. And we have an all new portrait mode to replicate a DSLR style look. And this has over 25 levels of adjustments so you can change the aperture all the way down to 0.95 So you have more of a blurry background and all the way up to f16 if you want more of a solid background. You can also adjust the size of the bokeh light spots in the background and you have bokeh flare portrait video so you can get the effect in video as well as in images.
AI Highlight Video
The OPPO Reno7 Pro also has improved AI Highlight Video. We’ve covered AI Highlight Video in the past and this is now enabled by default to help you capture clearer brighter and more vivid portrait videos, on both the front and refacing cameras, at night as well as with bright back lights. So as you can see OPPO has gone all out on the Reno7 Pro when it comes to the cameras. And these are some of the main features that we have on here.
Powering the Reno7 Pro
Now take a look at what’s powering the Reno7 Pro. It is the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 max 5G chip set. Now this is a very capable chip set and the Reno7 Pro also comes with up to 256 gigabytes of storage with 12 gigabytes of RAM. Now it doesn’t stop there because you also have a feature called RAM expansion. This will allow you to use some of your ROM as RAM for those more intensive tasks. Now for software, this does come with ColorOS 12 out the box and ColorOS 12 has been revamped to include more space resulting in a clean and uncluttered UI. Adapting ColorOS 12 for 67 languages used in over 140 countries and regions worldwide. There’s also an emphasis on privacy with features such as Anti-peeing notifications which will keep detailed notifications hidden when activated in public areas.
And for the battery we do have a large 4500 milliampere power battery which will keep you going all day long. And remember we do get the 65 watt Super VOOC charger included out of the box. This will get you a 100% charge on the Reno7 Pro in just around 31 minutes. And that is the OPPO Reno7 Pro. It is absolutely packed with a bunch of features, some of which we’ve covered in this article so far.
