0

Oppo launched the company’s new mid-range Reno7 5G series of high-end phones in India on Friday (February 4).

The company is offering the new 5G phones in two variants – a generic Reno7 (8GB RAM + 256GB storage) and a premium Reno7 Pro (12GB RAM + 256GB storage) – for Rs 28,999 and Rs 39,999, respectively.

DH has received the Reno7 Pro 5G review unit and here are our first thoughts on Oppo’s new handset.

Design and display

Oppo Reno7 Pro features a similar flat-edge design to its predecessor, but with few cosmetic changes to the main camera module on the back. The company has incorporated two large camera lenses along with a smaller macro sensor and LED flash.

This blue startrails model looks smooth and shiny to the eye, but it actually has frosted glass with a matte finish and you have to touch it to find out. As you can see from the cover photos, the case reflects different colors when viewed from different angles. By the way, it does a great job of repelling sweat marks from fingerprints and the high quality aluminum rails around the phone are sturdy and give off a premium hand feel.

Another notable aspect is that the company has incorporated 3D “breathing” light around the camera module. In fact, Oppo used a 1mm diameter fiber placed all around the frame of the camera module. Whenever you receive a call or notification, it glows creating a visually appealing aura around the camera.

On the front, it sports a gorgeous 6.55-inch Full HD+ (2400×1080p) AMOLED display. It supports a screen refresh rate of 90Hz, a maximum touch sampling rate of 1000Hz, and offers peak brightness of up to 920 nits.

The screen also has a fingerprint sensor and the entire front panel is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 shield. This is more than enough to protect the screen from scratches.

As you can see from the sample photos, it took very good photos with good natural light conditions. It managed to keep the details and colors almost accurate. I can’t wait to test it in other environments and let you know in the final review article.

CPU configuration

Oppo Reno7 Pro features 6nm-class MediaTek Dimension 1200 (Max) silicon backed by ARM G77 MC9 graphics engine. The chipset can clock the maximum CPU speed up to 3Ghz and is backed by 12GB of PLDDR4X RAM and the configuration is more than enough to run all heavy tasks such as graphics-rich games or recording high-end videos. resolution.

Also, it comes with 256GB of storage and enough to install all your favorite apps, as well as capture thousands of photos. The device is running ColorOS 12 out of the box based on Android 11 and is expected to receive the Android 12 OS update soon.

Considering the general specs and the asking price, Oppo Reno7 Pro 5G looks promising. So far I’m very impressed with the design language and build quality. I look forward to fully testing the camera capabilities, battery life and performance to find out if the device is worth recommending to people looking for a premium phone from midrange.
