OPPO, the leading global smartphone brand, today launched the new Reno2 Series in Malaysia at Nexus Connexion . Adding excitement to an already anticipated launch, OPPO has signed Chinese superstar Jam Hsiao and Malaysian celebrity Neelofa as official ambassadors for Reno2 Series.
For famous singer, actor, host and heartthrob, Jam Hsiao, the Reno2 provides him with a creative outlet on the go. “The Reno2 fits seamlessly in my fast-paced lifestyle allowing me to capture images and videos in real-time with high clarity and definition. The features I admire the most about the Reno2 are its quad camera technology. This allows me to click ultra-high-quality imaging whether in landscape or portrait, day light or low-light, far or near,” commented Jam Hsiao. He also elaborated on the Reno2’s Ultra Steady Video Mode, with the supreme capacity to take clear and steady videos, even during motion and action. “The Reno2 allows me to have a fresh perspective by offering me a whole new world in photography and videography, far away from the unconventional style.”
With a large fanbase in Malaysia, Neelofa is a well-known personality in the entertainment and fashion industry. A travel fan and not one to shy away from new experiences, for Neelofa, the Reno2 is a fresh approach to capturing moments and forever treasuring them. “I have always been a fan of the Reno Series, but the Reno2 is taking things to the next level. From the look and design of the phone to its features, the Reno2 has opened many new possibilities for me. Whenever I’m travelling and I come across an image that captures my attention, all I have to do is swap out my Reno2. Coupled with its latest quad camera technology and ultra-steady video mode, the Reno2 is able to perfectly lock down the essence of the photo or video I’m trying to capture – whether it is a group of children playing on the street, a cascading waterfall or a beautiful flower in the breeze,” said Neelofa during the launch event.
Boasting uber features that are sure to give smartphone users an elevated experience in smartphone photography, videography, gaming, browsing and much more, the Reno2 will empower creativity and change perspectives for Malaysians looking for an unexpected creativity drive.
Advanced Camera Tech Unleashes User Creativity
OPPO is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of mobile photography. The Reno2 will come equipped with four cameras that provide a full focal length imaging system; offering a 5x Hybrid Zoom, Ultra-Wide Angle lens and more. Three lenses of varying focal lengths work in unison to create a unique 5x Hybrid Zoom effect from the ultra-wide-angle to telephoto, which also fuses image technology to ensure a smooth, seamless zoom transition. This means crisp, ultra-high-quality imaging in long-distance scenarios; like presentations where textual information needs to be seen, or at a concert when users want to capture a clear picture of on-stage performers. The Ultra-Wide Angle lens feature provides an impressive 116° perspective, bringing out even more different images and photo themes. Users can now shoot vast and boundless landscapes day or night, and even in small or confined spaces, demonstrating the handset’s exceptional performance regardless of the subject or environment.
With a 48MP primary lens equipped with Optical Image Stabilization, F1.7 aperture, and a 1/2-inch sensor along with Quad Bayer technology, Reno2 can achieve better performance in low light. The Reno2 Series’ Ultra Dark Mode covers an entire range of different night scenes via a powerful NPU, and OPPO fine-tuned algorithms. Even if light levels measure below 1 lux, it elevates your photos beyond naked eye through hardware network-optimized AI noise reduction. Meanwhile, software dynamic exposure adjustments also secure optimal picture brightness allowing you to reveal objects in the night with the use of a built-in NPU speeding up picture processing. While the naked human eye can’t penetrate darkness, with Reno2 now users can capture stunning scenes such as fireflies at night and candlelight dinners.
But a single photo can’t tell a whole story, and with social media users increasingly shooting video, OPPO is paying more attention to Videography than before. OPPO’s industry-leading Ultra Steady Video Mode technology ups the stability of videos, enabling users to capture steady videos while running, skiing, skateboarding, cycling, and more. It’s achieved through an IMU measuring device with a high sampling rate and a hull sensor, equipped with Electronic Image Stabilization and Optical Image Stabilization. These compensate users’ shaky shots more accurately, and together with a 60fps frame rate, enhance image stabilization, fluency, and overall image quality.
User-centric design combines practicality with style
The Reno2 is also equipped with a 6.5” AMOLED screen, 2400×1080 resolution, and a screen-to-body ratio of 93.1%, made from durable 6th Generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass. The Reno2 F feature a slightly smaller 6.5’’ AMOLED screen, with 2340×1080 resolution, and a screen-to-body ratio of 91.1%, made from toughened 5th Generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass. The Reno2 comes with the improved Sunlight AMOLED Screen, which offers sufficient brightness even in bright outdoor environments while extending screen service life by 50% and reducing power consumption by 6%. The Reno2 comes with a Shark fin Pop-up Camera, which supports an ultra-clear backlit shots and all-new AI Beauty Mode while the Reno2 F feature a 16MP pop-up front camera featuring an Atmosphere Light.
The Reno2 Series feature seamless, one-piece curved bodies, and with the use of three-layer stripping technology, OPPO has achieved a glossier, multi-toned look that shows off different color shades from different angles. This creation of a varying and dynamic aesthetics contrasts the Reno Series, which conveyed a more reserved, static design. They feature rear cameras that remain hidden under the back cover, which itself is made from durable 5th Generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass.
The OPPO Reno2 Series “Twilight Mist” color way takes influence from the mesmerizing beauty of nature. Using sophisticated manufacturing techniques, deep hues combine with dream-like neon detail for a graceful, iridescent color that moves in a different light. For Luminous Black, the light-emitting area employs a roll-processed uneven nano-texture, which achieves an illuminating effect when viewed from a specific angle. The use of the Ribbon Transfer 2.0 process produces a unique color gradient effect which is superimposed over the illuminated texture, which is exclusive to the OPPO Reno2 Series. The gradual illumination effect causes the black color to change brightness levels when viewed from different angles, similar to varying depths of water and representing the mysterious beauty of the deep sea.
Cutting-edge hardware and software that delivers superb performance
The Reno2 Series is powered by ColorOS 6.1, running on the latest version of Android Pie 9.0, featuring a smoother and more enjoyable user experience. It provides a brand-new visual experience, including wallpaper designs that better match the phone’s exterior design. Light, elegant, and borderless gradient colors are used to replace the previously used large-area color blocks, and new gestures to manage navigation make the phone more comfortable to operate with a single hand.
This Reno2 Series offers a complete gaming experience, with optimized features like Touch Boost 2.0, Frame Boost 2.0 and Game Space. Touch Boost 2.0 helps users avoid common pitfalls of running hardcore titles while Frame Boost 2.0 analyses the status of mobile performance so that frame rate and stability will be adjusted to prioritize a first-class gaming experience. Frame Boost 2.0 will also allocate resources to avoid the consumption of too much power and the heating of the phone. What’s more, Game Space collectively manages game apps to give users a distraction-free and more immersive gaming experience. Overall, the Reno2 Series has five-star gaming performance certification from TUV Rheinland, which tests the overall gaming performance of the phone from the screen, battery life, performance, and signal strength.
Also, OPPO has been concentrating on video content to deliver a more immersive experience together with the Reno2’s Series’ high quality screen, Dolby Atmos®, and Hi-Res Audio.
The OPPO Reno2 Series features fast and safe VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 technology. This uses a new VFC algorithm, significantly shortening the final 10% of charging time by doubling the trickle charging speed. VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 combines with the Reno2 Series’ 4,000mAh (Typ) battery to provide users with a much longer-lasting battery.
