Oppo Reno8 T 5G releasing in the Middle East

The smartphone updates keep trickling, and now it’s Oppo’s turn with the new Oppo Reno8 T 5G coming to the Middle East. While the Reno8 has been out for a few months, this new model fits into the mid-tier that brings some of the premium features from the high-end flagship to a more suitable price point.

Major Portrait Upgrades on the Camera

Sliding into a new segment, the Oppo Reno8 T 5G implements OPPO’s first 108MP Portrait Camera. It also features an exclusive 40x Microlens and a 2MP Depth Camera together with a 32MP Selfie Camera for an upgraded photography experience throughout.

Based on this powerful camera setup, the Reno8 T 5G provides a range of portrait features, including Selfie HDR, Bokeh Flare Portrait, Dual-View Video and more, each of which empower users to capture professional-quality photos that express their own style and creativity.

Curved and Snug Display

A large display for the Oppo Reno8 T 5G fuses design with comfort. That’s courtesy of the 120Hz 3D Curved Design striking a balance between visual immersion and comfortable grip. Also helping to reduce accidental touches and screen damage.

Coming in at 6.7-inches, it’s quite a large AMOLED display providing a 93% screen-to-body ratio and 2.32 mm lower bezel. With a 120Hz Ultra High Refresh Rate and a 120Hz touching sampling rate that can be increased to 1,000Hz instantaneous sampling rate in certain game scenarios, the screen is super smooth and responsive.

If you want to geek out on the specs for the Oppo Reno8 T 5G, look no further.

Balanced performance powered by hardware and software enhancements

Oppo’s signature SuperVOOC is also present, looking to charge the device’s 4,800mAh battery in less than 45min at 67W. A 5-Layer Charging Protection ensures that super-fast charging is even safer to use. Pair it with OPPO’s self-developed Battery Health Engine, it also extends the Reno8 T 5G’s battery lifespan to up to 1,600 charging cycles, twice the industry average of 800 charging cycles (according to Oppo’s estimates).

On the performance side, the Reno8 T 5G is equipped with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage, and supports up to 1TB SD card expansion. Up to 8GB of additional virtual RAM can also be added using OPPO’s RAM Expansion function. Complemented by OPPO’s self-developed Dynamic Computing Engine, this ensures a longer stable user experience under heavy computing loads. As a reference for comparison, a Reno8 T 5G with 8GB RAM can allow up to 20+ apps running in the background at one time.

Powering this new model is a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 695 5G Mobile Platform. Though it’s not the latest, seeing the SnapDragon name means you’ll still get great performance in a device like this.

The model will be releasing on February 28. Pre-orders get a extra 12-month extended warranty and the newly-released Oppo Enco Buds2.

The phone is available in two colour finishes — Sunrise Gold and Midnight Black — both of which utilize the iconic OPPO Glow process to add a shimmering crystal effect to the 3D back cover while keeping it fingerprint-free.
