OPPO launched the new OPPO Reno2 Series in Malaysia at Nexus Connexion on 15 October 2019. The series which comprises of Reno2 and Reno2 F aims to redraw creative boundaries for consumers with many photography and videography enhancing features.
According to the latest report from Canalys, OPPO has successfully retained its position as the second highest smartphone brand in Malaysia for four consecutive quarters since Q3 2018. OPPO has also recorded 23% increases in shipment volume compared to the last year, making them the second fastest growing smartphone brand in Malaysia among other competing brands. OPPO has also captured a 20% market share as the second highest in the Malaysian smartphone industry with a 7% increase in growth as compared to last year.
“While we’re very grateful for our achievement, we are also not stopping at our commitment in delivering our best service to our consumers. In order to provide a more high quality service to all our users, we are delighted to announce the expansion of our retail-ends: Two brand new flagship stores will be introduced at The Garden Mall and Pavilion respectively, as part of our continued efforts to bring excellent and premium user experience to all our customers.’’ continued Nikki Chen.
OPPO is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of mobile photography. The Reno2 will come equipped with four cameras that provide a full focal length imaging system; offering a 5x Hybrid Zoom, Ultra-Wide Angle lens and more. Three (3) lenses of varying focal lengths work in unison to create a unique 5x Hybrid Zoom effect from the ultra-wide-angle to telephoto, which also fuses image technology to ensure a smooth, seamless zoom transition. This means crisp, ultra-high-quality imaging in long-distance scenarios; like presentations where textual information needs to be seen, or at a concert when users want to capture a clear picture of on-stage performers. The Ultra-Wide Angle lens feature provides a 116° perspective.
With a 48MP primary lens equipped with Optical Image Stabilization, F1.7 aperture, and a 1/2-inch sensor along with Quad Bayer technology, Reno2 can achieve better performance in low light. The Reno2 Series’ Ultra Dark Mode covers an entire range of different night scenes via a powerful NPU, and OPPO fine-tuned algorithms. Even if light levels measure below 1 lux, it elevates your photos beyond naked eye through hardware network-optimized AI noise reduction. Meanwhile, software dynamic exposure adjustments also secure optimal picture brightness allowing you to reveal objects in the night with the use of a built-in NPU speeding up picture processing. While the naked human eye can’t penetrate darkness, with the Reno2 users can capture low-light scenes such as fireflies at night and candlelight dinners.
OPPO is paying more attention to videography with the industry-leading Ultra Steady Video Mode technology ups the stability of videos, enabling users to capture steady videos while running, skiing, skateboarding, cycling, and more. It’s achieved through an IMU measuring device with a high sampling rate and a hull sensor, equipped with Electronic Image Stabilization and Optical Image Stabilization. These compensate users’ shaky shots more accurately, and together with a 60fps frame rate, enhance image stabilization, fluency, and overall image quality.
The Reno2 is also equipped with a 6.5” AMOLED screen, 2400×1080 resolution, and a screen-to-body ratio of 93.1%, made from durable 6th Generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass. The Reno2 F feature a slightly smaller 6.5’’ AMOLED screen, with 2340×1080 resolution, and a screen-to-body ratio of 91.1%, made from toughened 5th Generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass. The Reno2 comes with the improved Sunlight AMOLED Screen, which offers sufficient brightness even in bright outdoor environments while extending screen service life by 50% and reducing power consumption by 6%. The Reno2 comes with a Shark fin Pop-up Camera, which supports an ultra-clear backlit shots and all-new AI Beauty Mode while the Reno2 F feature a 16MP pop-up front camera featuring an Atmosphere Light.
The Reno2 series feature seamless, one-piece curved bodies, and with the use of three-layer stripping technology, OPPO has achieved a glossier, multi-toned look that shows off different colour shades from different angles. The rear cameras remain hidden under the back cover, which itself is made from durable 5th Generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass.
The OPPO Reno2 Series “Twilight Mist” colour is influenced by the mesmerizing beauty of nature. Using sophisticated manufacturing techniques, deep hues combine with dream-like neon detail for a graceful, iridescent color that moves in a different light.
For Luminous Black, the light-emitting area employs a roll-processed uneven nano-texture, which achieves an illuminating effect when viewed from a specific angle. The use of the Ribbon Transfer 2.0 process produces a unique color gradient effect which is superimposed over the illuminated texture, which is exclusive to the OPPO Reno2 series. The gradual illumination effect causes the black colour to change brightness levels when viewed from different angles, similar to varying depths of water and representing the mysterious beauty of the deep sea.
The Reno2 Series is powered by ColorOS 6.1, running on the latest version of Android Pie 9.0, featuring a smoother and more enjoyable user experience. It provides a brand-new visual experience, including wallpaper designs that better match the phone’s exterior design. Light, elegant, and borderless gradient colors are used to replace the previously used large-area color blocks, and new gestures to manage navigation make the phone more comfortable to operate with a single hand.
This Reno2 series offers a complete gaming experience, with optimized features like Touch Boost 2.0, Frame Boost 2.0 and Game Space. Touch Boost 2.0 helps users avoid common pitfalls of running hardcore titles while Frame Boost 2.0 analyses the status of mobile performance so that frame rate and stability will be adjusted to prioritize a first-class gaming experience. Frame Boost 2.0 will also allocate resources to avoid the consumption of too much power and the heating of the phone. What’s more, Game Space collectively manages game apps to give users a distraction-free and more immersive gaming experience. Overall, the Reno2 Series has five-star gaming performance certification from TUV Rheinland, which tests the overall gaming performance of the phone from the screen, battery life, performance, and signal strength.
Also, OPPO has been concentrating on video content to deliver a more immersive experience together with the Reno2’s series’ high quality screen, Dolby Atmos®, and Hi-Res Audio.
The OPPO Reno2 series features fast and safe VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 technology. This uses a new VFC algorithm, significantly shortening the final 10% of charging time by doubling the trickle charging speed. VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 combines with the Reno2 series’ 4,000mAh (Typ) battery to provide users with a much longer-lasting battery.
The OPPO Reno2 priced at RM2,299 while the Reno2 F is priced at RM1,599. Consumers may start to pre-order the phones until 25th October at all OPPO Concept Stores, OPPO Official dealer stores or online at the OPPO Official Website, e-commerce partners’ store at Lazada or Shopee; and OPPO Chainstore partners Senheng, senQ, and DirectD.
