Oppo’s Reno series has been around since 2019, usually targeting the mid-range segment and offering slick designs. Now, the company has launched the Oppo Reno 8 Pro in global markets, so what should you expect?

Perhaps the standout feature is the phone’s design, bringing the Oppo Find X5 Pro to mind. It offers a rear cover and camera bump made out of the same piece of glass, but you’re also getting flat edges here. This design is identical to the Oppo Reno 8 Pro Plus, which launched in China earlier this year.

More than just a great design?

The Reno 8 Pro shares more than just looks with the Reno 8 Pro Plus. It also has the same spec sheet, such as an upper mid-range Mediatek Dimensity 8100-Max processor, a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED screen, a 4,500mAh battery, and 80W wired charging speeds.

Switching to the photography field, the device has Oppo’s in-house MariSiliconX imaging chip. The company says this chip is used for better low-light 4K video, improved 4K HDR video, and higher quality selfies.

The Reno 8 Pro features a triple rear camera system, consisting of a 50MP IMX766 main camera, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 2MP macro shooter. Look at the front and you’ve got a 32MP IMX709 RGBW camera for selfies.

Other noteworthy features include Bluetooth 5.3, Color OS 12.1 atop Android 12, dual stereo speakers, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and Wi-Fi 6.

Oppo didn’t disclose pricing at the time of writing, but we hope it’s a little cheaper than last year’s Reno 7 Pro. The older phone launched at Rs 39,999 (~$500), and we thought it was of questionable value in our review at the time.
