There’s a baffling range of smartphones out right now with high-end flagships sporting the latest trends getting more expensive with each iteration and becoming increasingly out of reach. But the OPPO Reno4 series is here to shake things up with flagship-grade features like innovative nighttime photography wrapped in an elegant design.
The Reno4 series that is headlined by the Reno4 Pro 5G, also includes Reno4 Pro and Reno4. All three models continue the Reno series design-led aesthetic of slim, light and smooth build while packing a powerhouse of components that help you keep up with the latest tech trends from a smashing display and stereo speakers to a camera setup that lets you capture moments in vivid detail.
Here are a few ways the Reno4 series punches above its weight to stand out in the midrange scene and why you should opt for it over a phone that could cost twice as much.
Stunning design and gorgeous display
All Reno4 series phones have slender lightweight form factors that deceive their modest price tags with textured back for great ergonomics and smooth handgrip. The Reno4 Pro 5G further breaks the mid-range design mould with its all-glass build, metal trimmings and elegant curved edges that make you feel like you’re holding a premium piece of tech.
They also come in exciting color variants with a new gradient shade with a matte and glitter finish that make the Reno4 series truly stand out in a crowd. The Reno4 Pro 5G takes things to the next level with its dual stereo speakers, a notable feature that’s exclusive to flagships that cost twice as much as the Reno4 Pro 5G.
Where most phones in this price bracket sport cheaper LCD screen panels, the Reno4 Pro and Reno4 Pro 5G phones pack large vibrant Super AMOLED displays with crisp pixel density and minimal bezels, making them ideal for watching videos or surfing through social media. The selfie camera is tucked away neatly in punch hole design to deliver an all-screen immersive experience.
The higher-end Reno4 Pro 5G and Reno4 Pro come with groundbreaking 3D curved border-less displays to add even more grip for a comfy hand grip while elevating the premium look and feel of the phones. They also come with advanced features like ultra-smooth 90Hz refresh rates usually reserved for higher-end flagships.
Robust performance perfect for casual and power users alike
No matter which Reno4 series phone you pick, you are assured of solid performance without compromise and a great software on top that keeps things fluid and responsive. Most mid-range phones cut corners by opting for mediocre processors and limiting RAM to keep prices low.
This certainly isn’t the case with the Reno4 smartphones, all of which pack powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets coupled with generous RAM configurations to keep your experience lag-free and as smooth as possible.
The Reno4 Pro 5G is configured with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G integrated 5G chip to bring the speed and power of 5G, while the Reno4 Pro and Reno4 smartphones have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G under the hood.
Unlike other smartphones in its category with limited gaming performance, the Reno4 series has enhanced GPU performance, so whether you’re into mobile games, heavy multi-tasking or settling down to binge your favourite TV shows while surfing the web, the Reno4 series has you covered.
Additionally, tasks get done faster with the brand-new ColorOS7.2 that brings a more user-friendly experience and enhanced mobile gaming experience along with smart features like Floating Bar, Icon Pull Down gesture and Smart AirControl that offer new and helpful ways to use your phone.
Innovative nighttime capture and smart camera features
All Reno4 series phones sport top-notch multi-lens camera setups with the Reno4 and Reno4 Pro packing in 5 cameras, which is impressive since other phones in this price range max out at three. The Reno4 Pro 5G additionally, is customized with an ultra-wide, ultra-powerful Sony IMX708 image sensor with laser detection auto-focus (LDAF), something you won’t find in a phone at this price
The scene stealer on the Reno4 series is its killer suite of Night mode options for both photos and videos. Even higher-end smartphone cameras can struggle in low light, but the Reno4 series is powered by wider angle lenses, larger sensors and beautification effects along with incredible zoom, that let you take stunningly vivid photos and videos at night.
Alongside, there’s a suite of creative camera features on the Reno4 series that gives you the tools to unleash your creativity from fun AI effects like Color Portrait Mode that mute the background into black and white while keeping the subject in color to epic slow motion shots with 960fps Smart Slow Motion.
Get even more value out of the Reno4 series cameras with the fun Night Flare Mode on Reno4 Pro and Reno4 that applies artistic neon effects against the backdrop of streetlights while making the subject brighter for seriously cool nighttime shots. Low light selfies have never looked better with the Ultra Night Selfie Mode and Ultra Dark Mode kicking in to capture clearer and brighter nighttime shots using both the front and rear cameras.
Industry leading fast charging
OPPO wants to make battery anxiety a thing of the past which is why they’ve added their best-in-class fast charging technology on Reno4 Pro 5G and Reno4 Pro phones. Previously reserved for top-end flagships like the OPPO Find X2, 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charging tech has made its way to the modestly priced Reno4 series.
With this industry-leading charging tech, the phones’ 4,000mAh battery charges from zero to full in just 36 minutes. No need to worry when your phone goes out of battery when you can get to 50% in a blazing fast 12 minutes, an impressive feature not found on any other smartphone other than OPPO’s flagship Find X2 Pro.
SuperVOOC 2.0 tech has passed rigorous safety tests by the independent German safety authority TÜV Rheinland. It has five layers of protection including a chipset on the battery itself that monitors whether voltage is in safe and reasonable range and stops current if something is out of the ordinary.
Aside from blazing fast charging speeds, the Reno4 series phones are equipped with convenient power saving modes that let you stretch their excellent battery life even more. There’s Super Nighttime Standby that consumes only 2% battery power the whole night, so you don’t have to worry about charging your phone at night. There’s also the Super Power Saving Mode that lets you use your most frequently used apps with just 5% battery left, allowing you to chat on WhatsApp for 1.5 hours or watch 100 short videos.
These are all features that you’d normally find on phones that cost as much as an instalment for your property. OPPO doesn’t want you to compromise on your smartphone experience and is thus offering you flagship features at affordable prices with the Reno4 series.
