OPPO Reno7 Pro review: super-sensitive cat eye lens will shine

After many product upgrades and iterations, Reno, which has evolved from the R series, has also found the way it is best at: appearance is the first.

To expand it, I think it looks good (excellent design), and it looks good to me (excellent self-portrait beauty).

This time, the newly released OPPO Reno7 Pro has once again made a new upgrade around these two aesthetic pursuits. Next, let's start with how it looks good.

Appearance design: Xingyu lithography process, slim and straight edge design

Although the appearance design of mobile phones tends to be homogeneous, each generation of OPPO Reno models has unique brilliance, allowing us to recognize Reno models at a glance in the sea of ​​machines.

The design-oriented process can be said to be the normal operation of OPPO Reno. In the Reno6 series, in order to achieve the sparkling "Summer Sunny Sea" effect, the crystal diamond 3.0 process was promoted.

The design inspiration for the main color of the Reno7 series, "Xingyu Wish", should come from the natural scene of "a meteor shower across the aurora night sky".

In order to "leave" a whole meteor shower on the back of the fuselage, OPPO chose to perform secondary lithography on the basis of the crystal diamond process, and introduced the industry’s first LDI star rain lithography process, leaving 1.2 million on the glass backplane. Fine grating lines with different widths.

These fine grating lines create a spectacular meteor shower landscape, making a sordid meteor shower at your fingertips.

With the double-layer double-plating process, the back of Reno7 Pro can be seen in different visual angles with alternating cold and warm gradual colors, just like a meteor shower across the sky, and the background sky is also flowing with ever-changing aurora illusions.

In addition, the grating texture created by the Xingyu lithography process also brings a unique and delicate frosted touch, which can resist the erosion of fingerprints and oil stains, and bring a long-lasting, refreshing and comfortable grip.

OPPO Reno7 Pro turns to a design with a right-angle middle frame and almost flat glass panels on both front and back sides. The look and feel is more angular. The straight-edge middle frame is made of aluminum alloy with a matte surface.

Although Reno7 Pro uses a straight-edge middle frame design with sharp edges and corners, OPPO has added a CNC fine cutting process to the upper and lower sides of the aluminum alloy middle frame, which is matched with the 2.5D micro-arc transition design of the front and back glass, with tough lines. It can still provide a relatively rounded edge transition feel under the appearance.

And the frosted straight-edged middle frame also improves the stability of the grip. It does not cut or cut hands, but is very handy.

Although the straight-edge design makes Reno7 Pro look a little thicker than the previous generation, the thickness of 7.45mm is actually slightly thinner than the 7.6mm thickness of Reno6 Pro, plus Reno7 Pro is about 180g. The weight, the feeling of holding it in your hand, can be described as "light and thin".

In the rear image module part, OPPO Reno7 Pro first adopted a "matte integrated" laminated design, that is, the matte layer is suspended on the back of the fuselage as a base, and there is a layer of smooth and bright surface layer overlapped underneath. . And there is a ceramic lens ring on the matte layer to wrap the main camera to improve the scratch resistance of the lens.

As a "stroke of magic" in the design of the whole machine, OPPO hides a unique "star ring breathing light" in the extremely narrow space of 1mm raised by the rear image module.

Thanks to the industry’s first "optical fiber bending process", OPPO can not only cleverly use this extremely narrow 1mm space, but the star-ring breathing light has the feature of no breakpoints, breathing around a full circle of the rear module The lights can glow evenly and flicker softly like a star ring.

The application scenarios of the breathing light mainly include information notification (slowly flashing breathing light effect), incoming call reminder (fast flashing light effect), and charging status (constant light). The user can set the "Star Ring Breathing Light" in the system settings, such as selecting the application that needs to be notified, and the time period when the breathing light is on.

Charge it up, look at this flickering breathing light, it will indeed glow in my eyes.

What is amazing is the 6.55-inch OLED flexible screen on the front of OPPO Reno7 Pro.

In addition to supporting a 90Hz screen refresh rate, its surrounding borders have adopted an extremely narrow design, which increases the screen-to-body ratio to 92.8%, creating a "full front screen" effect, bringing a stronger overall look and feel.

And on the basis of this screen size, the area of ​​the fuselage is further narrowed, and the difficulty of one-handed control is slightly reduced.

The straight-edge screen design with extremely narrow bezels can intuitively bring very shocking and immersive visual effects, which can be said to be the gospel for "straight-screen fans".

RGBW super-sensitive cat eye lens, focus on self-portrait beauty

Next, let's take a look at how beautiful we are in the "eyes" of OPPO Reno7 Pro.

OPPO once again cooperated with Sony to deeply customize a 32-megapixel sensor IMX709, which was first released in the front lens of OPPO Reno7 Pro. OPPO will "permanently monopolize" this custom sensor and call it the "front super-sensitive cat-eye lens."

The reason for the name "Super Sensitive Cat Eye Lens" is naturally that it has the photosensitive characteristics of a cat's eye. As we all know, there is a mirror-like "bright blanket" reflection structure in front of the cat's eye retina. This means that the cat only needs to receive one-sixth of the light of the human eye to see things clearly, and it can still have it in a dark environment. Reasons for a clear vision.

OPPO Reno7 Pro shooting

The front-facing cat-eye lens of Reno7 Pro adds a self-developed RGBW arrangement and algorithm. The purpose is to greatly increase the amount of light entering the lens and enhance the imaging performance in dark light scenes. Simply put, the picture will be brighter in low light and there will be less noise.

OPPO and the dark scenes are relatively strong, it is not a matter of overnight. I still remember that OPPO had already equipped the first-generation RGBW sensor on the OPPO R7 Plus in 2015, but it was not further commercialized due to the lack of mature process technology and core computing power at that time. But obviously, OPPO has not given up the direction of research and development of this technology.

On the OPPO Imaging Development Day in August this year, OPPO demonstrated the "RGBW light-harvesting sensor" technology based on 22nm process technology. Now, this technology is presented by OPPO Reno7 series mass production.

OPPO’s new generation of self-developed RGBW four-in-one pixel fusion algorithm introduces 2 W pixels in each group of 4 sub-pixels, so that each pixel can have R (red), G (green), and B (blue) And W (lightness) signal recognition ability.

Since the W pixel does not carry any color information and is only sensitive to light, compared to the previous generation technology, the amount of light has increased by 60% and the noise has also been reduced by 35%. In low-light shooting scenes, Reno7 Pro can make the picture brighter while also becoming more pure.

▲In the outdoor environment at night, the light on the face is weak, which is particularly unfriendly to the front lens of the mobile phone

In order to improve algorithm execution efficiency and reduce hardware power consumption, OPPO, which has reached a deep partnership with Sony, has written a series of self-developed four-in-one pixel aggregation algorithms into the IMX709 hardware to form an "image processing unit."

Not only allows the front camera of Reno7 Pro to preview the imaging effect in real time, but also intelligently invokes the moonlight night scene algorithm under dark light, and automatically invokes the Live HDR algorithm under backlight.

More importantly, by solidifying the algorithm into the sensor, third-party applications can better call the capabilities of this sensor when calling the camera module. At present, many applications (including WeChat and Zoom) have been adapted. , Which can effectively improve the quality of video calls.

In the dark scene where the girls frowned when they saw it, the front camera viewfinder of OPPO Reno7 Pro showed a very bright preview screen, and the main character and the background were clearly visible. In the super-sensitive cat-eye lens, you only need to manage your expressions on the screen, and then you can press the shutter button with confidence.

In addition, it may be because of the addition of W pixels that not only the face makeup can be presented clearly and brightly in the picture, but the skin color of the portrait will also become white and transparent, very natural, bright and moving.

Of course, in low-light environments, the well-known Reno "Portrait Flare" filter can also be used smoothly. The new generation of technology brings AI hairline-level composition, which can finely highlight the subject of the character, even the edges of the hair are clear It can be seen, and it can also construct the depth-of-field light spot effect under the large-aperture lens, and the atmosphere is full at once.

If you really feel that the ambient light is extremely dim, we can turn on the "flash" function of the front camera, the screen will be adjusted to the highest brightness, and a circle of white background will be lit to act as a fill light to illuminate your face.

In addition, the new "naked makeup" beauty algorithm and AI radiant beauty 2.0 added to the OPPO Reno6 series have also been perfectly inherited by Reno7 Pro.

Clear and natural, it should be the first impression left by OPPO Reno7 Pro portrait photos and videos.

Reno7 Pro's built-in beauty algorithm can accurately identify the location of the user's facial features, and while preserving the texture of the skin, it can accurately eliminate possible facial blemishes. It will never mistake the beauty mole as a acne. It will eventually reflect Create a natural aesthetic effect.

Once again, I want to praise the OPPO Reno7 Pro's portrait spot filter for great progress, and its performance in daylight scenes is particularly obvious. The distinction between the subject and the background has become more accurate than the previous generation, and the effect is more natural.

In portrait mode, an "emotional filter" function is also provided. The human scene segmentation algorithm is used to optimize the skin color of the portrait, and at the same time increase the level of background light source, to highlight the personalized emotional expression.

The "beauty" function in the Reno7 Pro portrait camera is a feature that my lady particularly likes after experiencing it. The rich makeup options provided by the portrait camera can automatically put a pair of makeup on your face accurately, allowing you to automatically draw eyeliner, eye shadow, lipstick, nose shadow, blush, or even automatically in the lens Put sequins around the eye area.

The beauty imaging effect of OPPO Reno7 Pro has been highly praised by the young lady

With this "AI Beauty Makeup" function, the little fairies wake up early in the morning and lie on the bed. When their faces are still plain, they can directly dent the shape and take a photo of a "Good Morning Beater" with their own makeup. Self-portraits or videos are now available in the energy circle of friends.

The beauty algorithms mentioned above can basically be applied to portrait video shooting. In the portrait video section, Reno7 Pro has been optimized for night scenes, backlighting, blur, light spots, beauty makeup, etc., to help users shoot high-quality portrait videos.

It should be noted that the beauty and RGBW pixel four-in-one algorithm is optimized around the front camera, while the rear camera is slightly inferior to face optimization, and some portrait functions are also exclusive to the front camera.

In the rear camera part, OPPO Reno7 Pro is equipped with a 50-megapixel IMX766 CMOS as the wide-angle main camera, and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel macro lens together to form a rear three-shot.

This IMX766 is also a sensor jointly customized by OPPO and Sony. It has a 1/1.56 inch photosensitive area and f/1.8 aperture. It has been loaded by many OPPO flagship models before. It is a long-term adjustment and consumer market. Tested flagship sensor.

It is worth mentioning that the main camera has a wider viewing range than the previous generation, and the same location can accommodate a wider landscape.

▲ All shots were taken by the OPPO Reno7 Pro rear lens group. Due to site upload restrictions, some pictures are compressed.

Judging from the proofs, the performance of Reno7 Pro is satisfactory, and the color performance remains at an excellent level as always. Whether it is a scene with plenty of light during the day or a scene with low light at night, the performance of the rear main camera can be impressive. use. The AI ​​scene enhancement algorithm tends to please the eyeballs of the spectators, and will increase the color saturation of some pictures according to some scenes recognized.

It’s just that the lack of a telephoto lens causes the main burden of imaging to be placed on the main camera. The zoomed-in viewfinder needs to be cropped on the basis of the 50-megapixel main camera. When shooting a distant view, the resolution and texture of the picture will be slightly Significantly insufficient.

"Combination of soft and hard", further study the beauty of life with self-portraits

Finally, let’s take a look at the configuration part. OPPO Reno7 Pro is equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 MAX SoC built with a 6nm process, supports UFS3.1 flash memory, and can be configured up to 12+256GB.

The fluency of daily use is naturally a matter of course. In the face of some mainstream large-scale mobile games, such as MOBA-like "Honor of Kings" and "League of Legends Mobile Games", Reno7 Pro can achieve the state of "full frame play"; and "The Original God" has a relatively high rendering ability, and some maintain smooth operation. The average frame rate is about 50fps. Only in relatively complex scenes, there will be occasional frame drops.

Reno7 Pro supports the "Extreme Frame Stabilization" function, which allows the phone to automatically configure system performance management according to real-time frame rate, temperature, etc., to ensure that foreground games can run at a stable frame rate. Coupled with the VC soaking plate inside the fuselage, its temperature control is fairly good. After a long time of high-pressure operation, the temperature of the fuselage is only a little warm.

It is worth mentioning that OPPO Reno7 Pro has passed the test certification of the League of Legends mobile game event machine, becoming the recommended device for the 2021 League of Legends mobile game event.

Inside the body, which is as thin as 7.45mm, is equipped with a large 4500 mAh battery. At the same time, it supports 65W VOOC super flash charge, which can charge up to 80% in 20 minutes, and the battery can be fully charged in about 30 minutes.

Keeping the face value supreme, and getting started is light and smooth, this is the impression left to me by this generation of OPPO Reno7 Pro. For me, the light and handy straight-edge middle frame design coupled with a nice narrow-border straight screen makes the favorability full.

On the other hand, in addition to the upgrade of the exterior design, the custom RGBW front-facing cat-eye super-sensitive lens, which is the first launch, is also the most eye-catching aspect of Reno7 Pro.

From Reno5's AI video beauty to Reno6's AI video beauty and light spot portraits, and now the Reno7 series uses self-developed algorithms and customized RGBW sensors to improve sensitivity, OPPO Reno has always been running on the portrait video track.
