The New Portrait Expert: OPPO prepares to debut the Reno10 Series 5G

Meet OPPO's new Reno10 lineup featuring three phones that promise excellent portrait photography capabilities.

Over the past couple of years, OPPO has solidified itself as one of the premier choices when it comes to mid-range smartphones, and this is thanks in large part to the Reno series.

Dubbed #ThePortraitExpert, OPPO’s Reno devices were released a few years back, and the lineup has consistently delivered premium phones that can trade blows with certain flagships, all while having price tags that make them more attainable for more users, especially for today’s younger millennials and Gen Z users.

In fact, OPPO launched its Reno8 T series earlier this year featuring a range of devices that offered great cameras and performance. But now, OPPO is gearing up to launch its latest entry in the lineup – the OPPO Reno10 5G series.

For this latest series, OPPO promises that the phones in this range will deliver incredible photography capabilities, especially for portrait shots. And for the first time ever, OPPO will release the Pro and Pro+ models of the latest Reno series, making this an even more exciting launch.

Plus, this new lineup will come in three variants ranging from a more affordable model that still packs an impressive camera array, up to a top-of-the-line model that sees the Reno line truly move up to the flagship space.

OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G – A True Flagship Portrait Expert

While the Reno series has long featured excellent mid-range entries, the new Reno10 Pro+ 5G promises a true flagship-level experience. As the top-of-the-line model in OPPO’s latest lineup, the Pro+ model has all the bells and whistles that you can expect from a flagship phone, and then some.

A particular highlight is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 – a true flagship processor that’s usually only reserved for a brand’s top-end offerings. But OPPO decided to give the Reno10 Pro+ 5G a powerful processor such as this so that users won’t need to worry about performance, whether they need a phone for gaming or for productivity.

This processor isn’t just for pure performance though, it’s also integral in processing images so that the impressive camera setup on the Pro+ is fully taken advantage of. Specifically, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G packs a 50MP Ultra-Clear Main Camera with the new IMX890 sensor, as well as a 112° Ultra-Wide-Angle Camera and a 64MP Telephoto Portrait Camera.

Thanks to this setup, the triple rear shooters will offer users lots of flexibility when it comes to photography. Though perhaps the highlight here is the telephoto shooter which has a large f/2.5 maximum aperture and 25 cm minimum focusing distance, making it excellent for portraiture. It also helps that this periscope telephoto camera offers exceptional light sensitivity with its ½-inch sensor so that you can take portraits even in low light.

Portraits aren’t limited to the telephoto though as OPPO designed the full triple camera setup to be excellent for portrait photography.

The cameras and the processor are no doubt the highlights of the Reno10 Pro+ 5G , but the phone still promises to deliver on other fronts, including battery life.

This is because the Reno10 Pro+ 5G features 100W SUPERVOOC Flash Charge – the fastest charging on a Reno ever – support for its large 4,700mAh battery. The Reno10 Pro+ 5G is the first ever Reno device to feature this incredible fast charging technology that can charge the phone from 1% to 50% in just 9 minutes and 30 seconds!

Reno10 Pro 5G – A Pro-Level Portrait Photography Expert

Next, there’s the Reno10 Pro 5G, the middle point of the new lineup. Though don’t mistake this for a watered-down Pro+ version though as the Reno10 Pro 5G still has lots of impressive features that make it worthy of the Portrait Expert moniker.

Specifically, the Pro model has a 32MP IMX709 Telephoto Portrait Camera in its triple rear camera setup. This makes it the first Pro model in the Reno line’s history (not including the Pro+) to feature such a shooter. With this, the phone can capture portraits with excellent detail and a beautiful bokeh effect. And speaking of the bokeh, the phone also has portrait effects that can be adjusted, including foreground bokeh and bokeh flare for more creative shots.

What’s also great about this shooter is the 47mm equivalent focal length. For reference, most photographers use a 50mm lens to capture portraits as they give the most natural look that’s said to be closest to what the eye sees. Because of this, the Reno10 Pro 5G’s telephoto camera should make for natural-looking portraits that should look a step above the portrait photos from some competing mid-rangers.

While the telephoto is no doubt the highlight, the phone also has two other cameras, including a 50MP Ultra-Clear Main Camera with an IMX 890 sensor and a 112° 8MP Ultra Wide-angle Camera. Plus, the phone will feature a large OLED screen with a high refresh rate.
That’s not all as the Reno10 Pro 5G also has other interesting features that will be highlighted when the new lineup is launched, including that it also has the incredibly fast 80W SUPERVOOC Flash Charge feature that lets it charge to 100% in just 28 minutes.

Reno10 5G – No Compromise Mid-ranger

Last but most certainly not least, we have the Reno10 5G. While it’s not a Pro model, OPPO did not compromise on this phone’s features as it allows users to experience pro-level photography . That’s because the phone also has the Pro model’s 32MP Telephoto Portrait Camera with the IMX709 sensor.

With this, the Reno10 5G can also capture excellent portrait shots with a natural look and an eye-catching background blur effect. Plus, this is also the first base model of the Reno series with a telephoto shooter – this is quite a game-changer given that telephoto cameras are usually reserved just for flagship phones.

Along with the telephoto, the phone also has a 64MP Ultra-Clear Main Camera and a 112° 8MP ultra-clear Wide-angle Camera, making it a versatile system that can take all kinds of photos in all sorts of lighting conditions.

Cameras aren’t the only aspect of the Reno10 5G that OPPO focused on though as this mid-ranger also packs a bevy of premium features, including a large battery with incredibly fast 67W SUPERVOOC fast charging that can fill the phone’s battery to 100% in a flash!

OPPO Reno10 5G Series to launch in the Philippines very soon

Based on the specs of the Reno10 Series 5G devices, OPPO’s upcoming premium lineup will definitely be strong contenders in the mid-range and flagship segments, especially for users who want to get some of the best phones for portrait photography.

From the looks of it, this is going to be one of OPPO’s most exciting phone launches, and you won’t want to miss the Reno10 Series 5G launch in the Philippines which is happening very soon.
