Sony IMX709 is a next-generation RGBW 32MP camera sensor customised by OPPO. It ensures a 60% increase in light intake and a 35% improvement in noise reduction when compared with traditional RGB sensors. Together with OPPO’s self-designed Quadra Binning algorithm, every selfie will look dynamically bright and sharp no matter in lowlight or backlight scenes. IMX709 also supports AutoFocus on the front camera for the first time, enabling 2x zoom when taking selfies.

  • Ultra Night Video algorithm enhances the image quality, colour expression, and facial performance in lowlight environments, delivering sharp and bright night portrait videos. It is automatically enabled for nighttime shooting.
  • Ultra HDR Video mode prevents bright parts from over-exposure and enriches dark parts with subtle details, thereby producing natural portrait videos with vivid colours. It is automatically enabled in scenes with a large lighting ratio.
  • Night Portrait leverages industry-leading Turbo RAW algorithm to perform AI noise reduction in the RAW domain, delivering clear and pure portrait images.

Powered by MariSilicon X and the Dual Sony Flagship Sensors, Reno8 Pro 5G also provides a flagship-level portrait camera experience for the first time at this price point by bringing 4K video shooting to a smartphone with 4K Ultra Night Video and 4K Ultra HDR Video.
