OPPO Reno2 Wins The People’s Choice Award In Best Smartphone Category
OPPO has emerged as one of India’s top smartphone makers and is a manufacturer with a sharp focus on ‘Make In India,’ as well as on innovation. This has made OPPO extremely popular in India for their smartphones that offer premium functionality.
In a country where millennials love taking pictures OPPO smartphones with their superior camera capabilities and outstanding innovation have ensured that the brand has established itself as a people’s choice brand.
Taking this legacy forward the OPPO Reno2 with its unique and user centric camera innovations has taken user experience to a new level. This ensured that when Bloomberg|Quint Brand Studio asked many Indian smartphone users about their favourite phone, the OPPO Reno2 came out on top and won the Bloomberg|Quint Brand Studio People’s Choice Award in the Best Smartphone for Design & Camera category.
On receiving the award Mr. Tasleem Arif, Vice President and R&D Head India, OPPO, said, “We would like to thank Bloomberg|Quint for recognising OPPO Reno2 as the best smartphone for design and camera. OPPO Reno2 with its users’ centric innovations has been a instant hit in the Indian Market and OPPO will continue to make investment in R&D with India remaining a key focus market for the brand.”
The Reno series by OPPO touts innovatively designed smartphones and as expected, the Reno2 is an exceptionally well-designed and gorgeous smartphone. It sports an large 6.55” Dynamic Amoled Display, perfect for HD media consumption and gaming, and above all, enables users to click amazing photographs and videos with its ground-breaking camera setup. The Reno2 has a 20x Zoom with quad-cam module:
·The main 48MP camera with a new and improved Sony IMX 586 sensor and Optical Image Stabilization and f/1.7 aperture that makes it a snappy camera for well-lit shots.
· 13 MP Telephoto lens for long-distance sharp shots.
· An 8 MP Wide angle lens for capturing a larger area with every shot.
· A 2 MP Mono lens with 1.75μm pixels—perfect for capturing photos in low-light conditions as well as for monochrome photos.
This camera setup gives the smartphone an amazing array of capabilities. The quad-cam module in the Reno2 gives it a 16 – 83mm focal length range, which is unprecedented for a phone in this price bracket.
With this setup, the OPPO Reno2 is able to offer 5x Hybrid Zoom up to 20x Digital Zoom, enabling users to capture stunning photos and videos with superb clarity. OPPO’s Fusion Imaging technology ensures that switching between different focus levels is seamless.
Like its predecessor, one of the main features of this smartphone that literally stands out (pun intended) is its ‘shark fin’ rising front camera. This cool camera lies flush inside the top edge of the phone and slides out smoothly whenever commanded in just 0.8 seconds, with a motion like the door of a premium luxury car.
The front 16MP camera along with the soft front light enables amazing selfie captures. The fin is also protected from damage in case you drop it accidentally, courtesy of free fall protection that’s built-in. The best feature of the front camera is that it supports Video Bokeh mode, that focuses on the subject while blurring the background in real-time, making the Reno2 the first phone in the world to achieve this exceptional feat using a pop-up camera.
The Reno2 also introduces the Ultra Dark Mode 2.0 that lets users capture well-lit, clear photos in less than ideal lighting conditions. The phone employs advanced noise reduction and post-processing powered by AI on the NPU chip, which captures an astounding amount of detail in poorly-lit and dark environments.
Gone are the days of choppy, shaky video capture. The camera setup of this phone boasts of an Ultra Steady video mode that facilitates recording exceptionally smooth and stable video, giving one the impression of using an action camera on a track trolley. This is possible because of the perfectly engineered combination of Optical and Electronic Image Stabilization. Other great video features include Dynamic Zoom, Wind Noise reduction and Sound Focus, which further enrich the camera experience.
The OPPO Reno2 is a great buy if you’re looking for a uniquely designed, feature-rich smartphone with a best-of-breed camera. These innovative features along with aggressive pricing of the Reno2 makes it a great smartphone for users who want a professional camera experience without burning a hole in their pockets.
