Published

on

OPPO has launched its latest Reno series flagship, the all-new OPPO Reno8 Series alongside a range of IoT products. The latest series includes three 5G models; the Reno8 Pro 5G, Reno8 5G, and Reno8 Z 5G, each equipped with cutting-edge technology ensuring an all-around flagship experience. In tandem, OPPO also launches three new, state-of-the-art IoT products: the OPPO Pad Air, OPPO Band 2, and the OPPO Enco Buds2.

Ethan Xue, President of OPPO MEA said, “We are excited to announce the launch of our latest Reno8 Series and new line-up of exciting IoT products including the brilliant OPPO Pad Air, our first tablet which aims to create a smarter life and seamless cross-scenario experience for users across the region. At OPPO, we strive to provide our customers with an immaculate user experience, constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation and developing products that make people’s lives easier and more convenient. The Reno8 Series redefines the realms of mobile experience across performance, design, technology, and imaging, and we cannot wait to see how the market responds.”

Designed to be a Portrait Expert in every aspect, the Reno8 Pro 5G is equipped with OPPO’s first self-developed imaging NPU, MariSilicon X, elevating the device to deliver a series of innovative camera features. The Reno8 Pro 5G also features a Streamlined Unibody Design, smooth flagship-level performance, and fantastic all-around experience through ColorOS 12.1. As a Portrait Expert, the Reno8 Pro 5G brings ultra-clear portrait photos and videos to all-new heights with its powerful hardware foundations.

At the core of this unrivalled portrait experience is OPPO’s first self-developed imaging NPU, MariSilicon X, which provides an immense level of dedicated computing power for the Reno8 Pro 5G’s imaging features, all while consuming even less power. Built on cutting-edge 6nm process technology and industry-leading DSA architecture, MariSilicon X is able to deliver an incredible 18 trillion operations per second (18 TOPS) of dedicated image processing power. With this large computing power and high data throughput, MariSilicon X can perform lossless real-time 4K AI processing and up to 20bit HDR fusion in the RAW domain, while achieving up to 8dB signal-to-noise ratio for images. Through its ability to directly process images in the lossless RAW domain, MariSilicon X acts as an unmatched foundation for the Reno8 Pro 5G’s ultimate imaging experience.

The Reno8 Pro 5G’s stellar hardware lineup also includes Dual Sony Flagship Sensors in the form of the new generation IMX709 RGBW front camera sensor and the flagship IMX766 main camera sensor:

  • The IMX709 sensor introduces an all-new RGBW pixel array to capture more light without reducing colour information. Together with DOL-HDR technology embedded in the sensor, the IMX709 enables the Reno8 Pro 5G’s front camera to easily capture high-quality selfies in any scenario. The IMX709 also supports AutoFocus on the front camera for the first time, enabling 2x zoom when taking selfies. With a minimum focal distance of 15cm, it’s possible to capture super close-up shots using the Reno8 Pro 5G’s front camera, offering unprecedented detail in selfies.
  • On the rear camera, the IMX766 delivers an enhanced portrait experience with its large 1/1.56-inch sensor size and features like All Pixel Omni-Directional PDAF and DOL-HDR.

Powered by MariSilicon X and the Dual Sony Flagship Sensors, the Reno8 Pro 5G provides a flagship-level portrait camera experience. It is also the first time that 4K video shooting has been brought to a smartphone at this price point – with 4K Ultra Night Video, users can capture ultra-clear portrait videos at night, while 4K Ultra HDR Video optimizes portrait videos taken in the presence of strong backlight. Both features can significantly improve image quality and colour expression in pictures, avoiding over-exposure in bright areas while retaining the maximum amount of detail in dark areas. For those who want to add movie-quality effects to their photos and videos, the Reno8 Pro 5G also offers features like Portrait Mode, Hyperlapse, and 960fps AI Slow-motion.

For the first time in the Reno series, the Reno8 Pro 5G features a  flagship-level Streamlined Unibody Design, eliminating the standalone camera ‘bump’ commonly seen on other smartphones. The stunning seamless design makes the phone comfortable to hold while preventing dust from getting trapped around the camera area. Also, on the rear of the phone, the Prominent Binocular Camera Module and Ring Flash featured in the camera area highlight the phone’s powerful camera features through their distinct design.

On the front of the device, the Reno8 Pro 5G features a 6.7″ Ultra-Clear AMOLED display with a 93.4% screen-to-body ratio, support for 1 billion colours, and a 120Hz refresh rate for a guaranteed smoother and more comfortable viewing experience with enhanced interaction. The display is also HDR10+, SGS Low Motion Blur, SGS Low Blue Light certified, and HDR certified for Amazon and Netflix. Measuring just 7.34 mm in thickness, and weighing just 183 g, the Reno8 Pro 5G is the thinnest Reno series handset yet and will be available in two new stunning colour finishes – Glazed Green and Glazed Black.

Powering the Reno8 Pro 5G’s smooth performance is the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX integrated 5G SoC. Built on the industry-leading 5nm process, the octa-core SoC delivers more powerful performance with even lower power consumption. The Reno8 Pro 5G comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of ROM storage. The handset also introduces the highly efficient LPDDR5 read and write storage management system for the first time on the Reno series.

To help users enjoy its all-around flagship-level performance for longer, the Reno8 Pro 5G delivers a faster, safer, and more reliable experience. Among these, super-fast 80W SUPERVOOC is able to charge the Reno8 Pro 5G’s 4500mAh battery to 50% in only 11 minutes, and a 5-minute charge is enough to provide two hours of mobile gaming. Meanwhile, with the Battery Health Engine’s help, the Reno8 Pro 5G’s battery lifespan can be extended up to 1600 charge/discharge cycles, or roughly four years of average use. Further to this, with the inclusion of OPPO’s 5-Layer Charging Protection, the Reno8 Pro 5G has passed TÜV Rheinland’s Safe Fast-Charge System Certification in recognition of its outstanding overall safety performance.

Additionally, OPPO’s Ultra-Conductive Cooling System applies industry-leading materials to the Reno8 Pro 5G in order to significantly improve heat dissipation performance and ensure that the phone can run smoothly at all times within a comfortable temperature range. Powered by the flagship-level hardware, the Reno8 Pro 5G users can enjoy an all-around smooth experience that has been awarded an A Rating in TÜV SÜD’s 36-Month Fluency test.

For mobile gamers, the Reno8 Pro 5G is also packed full of system-level optimizations tailored to gaming. 90Hz high-refresh mode for PUBG Mobile enables a more immersive gaming experience, while features like Ultra Touch Response and Background Update deliver consistently smooth gameplay.

Tying this all together is ColorOS 12.1 — the gateway to a smarter, smoother, and safer smartphone experience. Features like Air Gestures and Multi-Screen Connect help to dramatically improve productivity, enabling more intelligent and convenient ways of working. Highly imaginative Omoji also gives users more creative ways to personalize their phone and operating system. To ensure user privacy and safety, ColorOS 12.1 comes with features like Anti-peeping for Notifications, Require Password to Power Off, and Recent Tasks Protection, all of which have contributed to the Reno8 Pro 5G being awarded authoritative third-party privacy and security certifications, including ePrivacy, ISO27001, ISO277001 and more.

The Reno8 5G features Dual Sony Flagship Sensors and several AI-enhanced imaging features such as Ultra Night Video and Night Portrait, the Reno8 5G is designed to make you shine in daily life. Alongside its professional camera capabilities, the Reno8 5G features a Streamlined Unibody Design, delivering a more refined texture. By adopting 80W SUPERVOOCTM with Battery Health Engine, the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 SoC, an upgraded Super-Conductive VC Liquid Cooling System, and ColorOS 12.1, the new Reno8 5G provides strong durability, reliable performance, and all-round smooth experience to users.

Powered by several AI-enhanced imaging features such as AI Portrait Retouching and Bokeh Flare Portrait, the new Reno8 Z 5G is designed to offer users unlimited styles for their portraits. Alongside its outstanding camera capabilities, the Reno8 Z 5G features a glass back cover and the Integrated OPPO Glow. By adopting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G Mobile Platform and optimized ColorOS 12.1, the Reno8 Z 5G offers more reliability and convenience to users.

Launching alongside the Reno8 Series is the OPPO Pad Air, OPPO Enco Buds2, and OPPO Band 2 to cater to users’ entertainment, relaxation, work, and health needs in a truly immersive OPPO experience. With the 6.94mm ultra-slim body and weighing just 440g, the OPPO Pad Air tablet makes it effortless to carry around. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 Mobile Platform, OPPO Pad Air sports a 10.36-inch 2K display with quad speakers supporting Dolby Atmos.  Meanwhile, OPPO Pad Air comes equipped with the new ColorOS for Pad system. Its more efficient and smoother smart connection functions take the large-screen experience to a higher level.

Featuring surging bass output, 28-hour long-lasting battery, remote camera control, and ultra-clear call audio with built-in noise cancellation, the OPPO Enco Buds2 is one of the most competitive wireless earbuds in the market. Lastly, the OPPO Band 2 offers users an exclusive 1.57-inch large full view screen, and inspiring new looks.

Apple’s “Far Out” Event: New iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14, Watch Ultra, Watch Series 8, and AirPods Pro Launched

Published

on

Apple has announced a wide range of devices at its launch event, including the new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, featuring the Dynamic Island — a new design that introduces an intuitive way to experience iPhone — and the Always-On display. Powered by A16 Bionic, the fastest chip ever in a smartphone, iPhone 14 Pro introduces a new class of pro camera system, with the first-ever 48MP Main camera on iPhone featuring a quad-pixel sensor, and Photonic Engine, an enhanced image pipeline that dramatically improves low-light photos.

The new phones also feature Emergency SOS via satellite and Crash Detection. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be available in four gorgeous new finishes: deep purple, silver, gold, and space black. Pre-orders begin Friday, September 9, with availability beginning Friday, September 16.

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max feature surgical-grade stainless steel and textured matte glass design in four colours. Available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes, both models include a new Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion that features the Always-On display for the first time ever on iPhone, enabled by a new 1Hz refresh rate and multiple power-efficient technologies.

This makes the new Lock Screen even more useful, keeping the time, widgets, and Live Activities available at a glance. The advanced display also brings the same peak HDR brightness level as Pro Display XDR, and the highest outdoor peak brightness in a smartphone: up to 2000 nits, which is twice as bright as iPhone 13 Pro.

The Dynamic Island enables new ways to interact with iPhone, featuring a design that blends the line between hardware and software, adapting in real-time to show important alerts, notifications, and activities. With the introduction of the Dynamic Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to take up less of the display area. Without impeding content on the screen, the Dynamic Island maintains an active state to allow users easier access to controls with a simple tap-and-hold. Ongoing background activities like Maps, Music, or a timer remain visible and interactive, and third-party apps in iOS 16 that provide information like sports scores and ride-sharing with Live Activities can take advantage of the Dynamic Island.

For the first time ever, the Pro lineup features a new 48MP Main camera with a quad-pixel sensor that adapts to the photo being captured and features second-generation sensor-shift optical image stabilization. For most photos, the quad-pixel sensor combines every four pixels into one large quad pixel equivalent to 2.44 µm, resulting in amazing low-light capture and keeping photo size at a practical 12MP.

The quad-pixel sensor also enables a 2x Telephoto option that uses the middle 12 megapixels of the sensor for full-resolution photos and 4K videos with no digital zoom. This delivers optical quality at a familiar focal length, which is great for features like Portrait mode. The quad-pixel sensor also brings benefits to pro workflows, optimizing for detail in ProRAW. And with a new machine learning model designed specifically for the quad-pixel sensor, iPhone now shoots ProRAW at 48MP with an unprecedented level of detail, enabling new creative workflows for pro users.

With a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force measurements of up to 256Gs and a new high dynamic range gyroscope, Crash Detection on iPhone can now detect a severe car crash and automatically dial emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to reach their iPhone. When combined with Apple Watch, Crash Detection seamlessly leverages the unique strength of both devices to get users help efficiently.

Apple today also introduced iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, featuring two sizes — 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches — in a sophisticated design with impressive camera upgrades and groundbreaking new safety capabilities. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus take stunning photos and video with a powerful camera system featuring new Main and front TrueDepth cameras, the Ultra Wide camera for unique perspectives, and Photonic Engine — an enhanced image pipeline. Both models include the A15 Bionic chip with a 5-core GPU, which offers incredible performance and efficiency for demanding workloads, and is designed with privacy and security built-in.

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus introduce critical safety capabilities such as Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via satellite, a first in the industry. And with amazing battery life, industry-leading durability features, and super-fast 5G, this iPhone lineup is more advanced than ever before. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will be available in midnight, blue, starlight, purple, and (PRODUCT)RED1 finishes. Pre-orders begin Friday, September 9, with availability for iPhone 14 beginning Friday, September 16, and availability for iPhone 14 Plus beginning Friday, October 7.

The company also announced the second generation of AirPods Pro, the most advanced AirPods ever. With the power of the new H2 chip, AirPods Pro unlocks breakthrough audio performance — including major upgrades to Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode — while also offering a unique way to experience Spatial Audio that’s even more immersive.

Now, customers can enjoy Touch control for media playback and volume adjustments directly from the stem, along with longer battery life, a brand-new charging case, and an additional ear tip size for a better fit. AirPods Pro (2nd generation) will be available to order online and in the Apple Store app starting Friday, September 9, with availability in stores beginning Friday, September 23.

Apple’s new Apple Watch Ultra, brings a new bold design and a wide range of features built for endurance, exploration, and adventure. Apple Watch Ultra introduces a 49mm titanium case and flat sapphire front crystal that reveals the biggest and brightest Apple Watch display yet. A customizable Action button offers instant access to a wide range of useful features. Apple Watch Ultra has the best battery life of any Apple Watch, reaching up to 36 hours during normal use.

Additionally, a new low-power setting, ideal for multi-day experiences, can extend battery life to reach up to 60 hours.2 The Wayfinder watch face is designed specifically for the larger Apple Watch Ultra display and includes a compass built into the dial, with space for up to eight complications. Apple Watch Ultra also brings three new bands — Trail Loop, Alpine Loop, and Ocean Band — offering unique design features that provide a secure and comfortable fit for every adventure. Apple Watch Ultra is available to order immediately, with availability beginning Friday, September 23.

Apple also introduced the new Apple Watch Series 8 and the new Apple Watch SE, which bring groundbreaking technology and performance, and important safety innovations to the two best-selling smartwatches. Apple Watch Series 8 features the beloved design of the Apple Watch, including a large, Always-On Retina display and a strong crack-resistant front crystal. With all-day 18-hour battery life, Apple Watch Series 8 builds on best-in-class health and safety features like the ECG app and fall detection by introducing temperature-sensing capabilities, retrospective ovulation estimates, Crash Detection, and international roaming.

The new Apple Watch SE delivers the core Apple Watch experience, including Activity tracking, high and low heart rate notifications, and Emergency SOS, as well as the new Crash Detection feature and a completely redesigned back case that perfectly matches the three classic case finishes, all at a more affordable price of AED 999. Both models are powered by watchOS 9, introducing new and more customizable watch faces like Lunar and Metropolitan, an enhanced Workout app, sleep stages, a first-of-its-kind AFib History feature, and an all-new Medications app. Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE are available to order immediately, with availability beginning Friday, September 16.
