    • New Monstrous MediaTek Dimensity 1200 Dimensity 900 Processors
    • 65 Watts Fast Charging Support 

The OPPO Reno6 series offers some noteworthy camera features, and I would like to share this upfront before we get to the other specs and details. 

What’s the new Bokeh Flare Portrait Video Mode?

The Reno6 series comes with the leading new Bokeh Flare Portrait Video. 

Most smartphones offer high-quality video recording, but that usually doesn’t come with a background blur or bokeh, as seen in DSLR videos. 

The new Reno6 phone has Portrait Video Mode that enables a creamy-looking bokeh in the videos. 

This feature can be convenient for content creators and general use as the background blurring makes the subject stand out. 

Another cool feature is the AI Highlight Video that can automatically detect ambient light and make video optimizations something you would have seen on other phones for still photos. 

The AI Highlight Video helps you shoot better videos in all lighting conditions with clearer, brighter, and more vividly colored portrait videos. 

Additionally, we have focus tracking for videos that allows you to track the subject, incredibly useful when you want to capture kids or moving subjects in the videos.

There is a Flash Snapshot image mode for sports photography that can help capture moving subjects with quick shutter speed to avoid blur images. 

Lastly, we have editing tools like AI Palette and the new Soloop- Smart Video Editor for quickly editing videos. It has pre-loaded templates and the latest music to add to your videos.

The software experience is a big-big factor that makes a good phone great. OPPO is doing some innovative work in this direction. And I like it! 

OPPO shared during the official presentation that over 70 million Reno smartphone users across the globe capture 2 billion photos and over 200 million videos every month. People love taking photos and Videos, and OPPO is utilizing AI algorithms to offer an unparalleled video experience – “a studio in your pocket”!

Sharing his views on the launch, Damyant Singh Khanoria, CMO, OPPO Mobiles India Pvt. Ltd., said, “At OPPO, customer satisfaction lies at the ethos of our product development and growth trajectory, and hence we have always been committed to delivering an all-rounder smartphone with flagship-grade features to our consumers.  The 5G superphone will enable users to capture their emotions in portrait, providing an ultimate professional-level experience. OPPO Reno6 series is truly a smartphone of the future!”
