We finally have the official word from OPPO — Reno5 4G and Reno5 5G are going to launch in the Philippines this February 2021. One of the biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world is positioning the two devices are the “ultimate smartphone videography powerhouse.” While that definitely sounds exciting, especially during this time where most of us are transitioning to vlogging from the comforts of our homes, there’s a lot more to say than those four long words. That said, here’s what you should expect from Reno5 4G and 5G next month.
OPPO Full Dimension Fusion (FDF) Portrait Video System
OPPO is heavily braggings the Reno5’s FDF Portrait Video System that “works on the basis of top-end imaging hardware in tandem with flexible, intelligent software” for “creating stunning portraits and scenery.”
In the real world, this kind of feature improves the way the bokeh melts in the background to isolate the subject for a more professional look. However, it appears OPPO is trying to make the feature more applicable to almost all kinds of scenarios. So whatever your subject is, Reno5 tries its best to analyze the capture data into a photo you’re proud to share with your friends and family.
Diving deeper, the video system comprises two engines — the Quality Enhancement Engine and the Portrait Perception Engine. The former is responsible for keeping the subject clear in any scenario, whether that be day, night, in strong backlight, or motion. On the other end, the latter paves the way for portrait imagery in videos, hence portrait video. It keeps the subject in focus while the background in what OPPO defines as “clearly and naturally defined.”
AI Highlight Video
Through Quality Enhancement Engine, Reno5 introduces AI Highlight Video. OPPO practically married Ultra Night Video and Live HDR to provide users a way to capture videos with intelligently-adjusted brightness, color, and clarity. What’s more, it works for both the front and rear cameras of the phone.
OPPO applies three kinds of adaptive technologies to make AI Highlight Video possible — brightness adjustment, dynamic range, and noise reduction. With it, you get a more dynamic range in most challenging scenarios.
Portrait Perception Engine
For Portrait Perception Engine, it comprises of Scene Design Manager and Portrait Recognition to enhance the overall portrait capabilities of the Reno5 devices. Though, it’s worth noting that AI Color Portrait, Monochrome Video, and AI Mixed Portrait are reserved for the 4G model only.
Nevertheless, the Scene Design Manager is OPPO’s proprietary technology that has its large database to analyze and process real-life portrait scenes for the best possible portrait look. Portrait Recognition, on the other hand, kicks in once Portrait Perception Engine receives the data — applying the separation between the subject and the background. OPPO is using millions of portrait data from its database to increase the accuracy and speed of the SOTA AI model, another part of the engine that uses AI models and deep neural networks to improve portrait photography.
It’s only a matter of weeks until OPPO launches the Reno5 4G and 5G in the country. Even if you’re not an avid fan of photography or videography, we think you’ll still enjoy the other benefits provided by the devices, such as faster charging, great design, and colorful display.
