When I think of OPPO, I think of a blend of sophistication and simplicity. OPPO has continued to provide smartphone solutions for years on end, and they just keep getting better at their craft.
The global technology brand has recently launched a new smartphone – the OPPO Reno6 5G. But it’s not just a regular smartphone. The OPPO Reno6 5G has an AI-enhanced video performance. Reno6 5G is an AI portrait expert equipped with a load of industry-leading features. The smartphone also features OPPO’s Iconic Reno Glow design with ultra-slim retro design, powerful performance from the MediaTek Dimensity 900,
and OPPO’s own intelligent ColorOS 11 to make Reno6 5G the best companion for the 5G era.
The phone has 5th Generation (5G) technology, meaning it is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.
5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.
Let’s dive deeper into the features of the phone.
The OPPO Reno6 5G delivers a smooth, vivid user experience. It is, as the brand describes, designed to dazzle. It also has a fingerprint-proof finish, which gives it a clean neat look throughout. The phone is also light in weight, which is definitely an impressive feature that makes it handy. It specifically weighs 182 grams, with a 7.59 mm thickness.
The good thing about the OPPO Reno6 is that it will be available in different colors, so you can get the one that suits your taste. It comes in black, blue, aurora, and purple. All these colours are really pretty and classy so it all depends on what you are going for.
If you’ve had a phone that hangs, then you know the struggle all too well. This is why, when considering a new phone you need to look at the processors of various phones. With the OPPO Reno6, you get a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate which delivers a more vivid and smooth viewing experience.
A phone with a slow charging system or poor battery holding capacity is stressful! You’re always looking for the next place to charge your phone, and when it goes off, it disables you. Luckily, you can say goodbye to these struggles with the OPPO Reno6. The 65W Super VOOC 2.0 charges your phone to 100% in only 28 minutes.
The 4300 mAh battery, combined with Super Power Saving Mode and Supernighttime standby can keep your phone on and powered for a longer time until you get to a charging spot.
The main reason why many of us would like to upgrade our phones is for the camera, and now, OPPO has given enough reasons why the OPPO Reno6 has a camera worth upgrading to.
The phone has a 64MP AI Triple Camera setup on the back and a 32MP Selfie Camera on the front. Additionally, it has a dedicated colour temperature sensor that captures colours more accurately. Focus Tracking is also introduced on Reno6 5G, enabling enhanced video auto-focusing by identifying and automatically tracking main subjects consistently and steadily.
The OPPO Reno6 is powered by OPPO’s over-10-million portrait datasets and AI algorithms. It contains the Bokeh Flare Portrait video which delivers real-time video processing to capture portrait videos with bokeh light spots on the background, all while keeping the portrait subjects appearing natural and bright.
It is available on both the front and rear cameras. This dream-like bokeh lighting effect can be applied to your portrait videos with just one click.
The phone is available for pre-order on Masoko, Jumia, Skygarden and Kilimall. For every device ordered you will walk away with Enco W32 buds, OPPO band, and a backpack in Kenya. It will cost you about 56,000 shillings. For the diverse and enhanced features you get with this phone, it is worth the money.
