DUBAI – OPPO has announced the launch of its new Reno2 Series in the UAE at Armani Hotel Dubai. The Reno2 and Reno2F models are the latest iteration of OPPO’s popular Reno series, packed with photography-enhancing features that will redraw the boundaries of users’ creativity. The announcement comes right after the Reno2 Series was highlighted in a teaser campaign projected onto the iconic Burj Khalifa, wowing audiences that gathered to watch the impressive show.
The Reno2 series’ unique multi-perspective capabilities are enabled by its quad-camera setup, which includes super-stable video shooting on the go thanks to Ultra Steady Video feature, ultra-clear night shots even under a nearly-no-light condition in Ultra Dark Mode and 5x Hybrid Zoom allowing users to get much closer to a subject.

Innovative Photography Technologies to empower users: OPPO is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of smartphone photography. The Reno2 is 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 harmony 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. The Ultra-Wide Angle lens feature provides an impressive 116° angle for photography, enabling users to shoot vast and boundless landscapes.
Smooth videos on the move with ultra steady video: With social media users increasingly shooting videos, OPPO is paying more attention to videography capabilities than ever before. Users can capture steady videos while running, skiing, skateboarding, cycling, and more, through an IMU measuring device with a high sampling rate and a hull sensor, equipped with Electronic Image Stabilization and Optical Image Stabilization. Ultra Steady Video brings you exceptionally clear and smooth videos matching the quality of purpose-built action camera.

The Reno2 Series provides an impressive range of different night scenes via a powerful NPU, and OPPO’s fine-tuned algorithms. Even if light levels measure below 1 lux, it elevates your photos beyond the capabilities of the naked eye through hardware network-optimized AI noise reduction. 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.
User-centric design and elegant look from all angles: The Reno2 series features 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 body-color 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.
Panoramic screen and unbeatable visibility in Bright Light: The Reno2 is 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.

Touch Boost 2.0 helps users avoid the 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 also allocates resources to avoid the consumption of too much power and the heating of the phone. 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.

OPPO’s first wireless noise-canceling headphones for a brand-new audio experience: With the Reno2 Series, OPPO has introduced its brand-new neckband headphones: the OPPO Enco Q1 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones.
