Features of the Reno5
AI Portrait Expert
The Reno5 has an all-new camera system featuring a 64MP rear quadcam matrix and a 44MP ultra clear front camera. These are further enhanced by the OPPO Full Dimension Fusion (FDF) Portrait Video System, an imaging system designed for superior portrait video effects. The system is composed of two engines, the Quality Enhancement Engine and the Portrait Perception Engine.
The Quality Enhancement Engine helps capture clear video in any conditions, no matter whether in the night or backlit scenes, while in motion or standing still. The
Portrait Perception Engine on the other hand defines fine-grained criteria for portrait effects to help deliver naturally processed human subjects and backgrounds videos. Together, the highly-intuitive system delivers an unmatched experience that not only captures portrait videos in perfect quality but does so in a way that can help users to maintain their unique style.
AI Highlight Video
Portrait video quality is taken to the next level because of the FDF Portrait Video System. AI Highlight Video – a feature that automatically detects the ambient light in a scene and improves the video‘s quality accordingly by applying OPPO’s industry-leading Ultra Night Video Algorithms and Live HDR Algorithms.
Ultra Night Video Algorithms will come into play automatically in dark environments to brighten the scene, while detection of backlit scenes will engage Live HDR Algorithms to reduce overexposed areas. Both functions leave videos with better exposure and brightness, less noise, and clear and natural colours with just one click of the “AI” button while in video mode.
OPPO Image Clear Engine

OPPO Image Clear Engine will enable uses to take clear pictures of moving subjects and capture unforgettable moments as they occur with this system-level optimization The phone also supports Ultra-clear 108MP Image, which can bring out unprecedented rich details and textures in portrait images and give users plenty of flexibility when it comes to editing.
AI Mixed Portrait
An industry-first – by combining a portrait video onto a background video, AI Mixed Portrait brings the double exposure video effect enabling an all-new artistic effect. The feature comes with two different artistic modes where users can customize how the portrait video blends into the background video, leading to fun and imaginative results. Likewise, the new Dual-view Video provides enables video to be captured from the front and rear cameras simultaneously. This double-perspective recording function effortlessly stitches you and the object you are shooting in the same video frame at once – perfect for vloggers who want to remain in the action at all times.
