Lenses (50 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP)

Oppo Reno 8 has 3 cameras at the back and the main camera is awesome. The Oppo Reno 8 main Camera is 50 megapixel Sony IMX 766 F/1.9. What makes this camera setup even more awesome is that this camera lens is combined with the wide aperture of F/1.9, the wider the aperture the more light will it collect and the more sharp the image and video quality will be.

You can also record 4K at 30FPS which will contain even more details and will be sharper. There is Optical image stabilization on the main lens only. This is quite impressive, this will make the camera experience more stable and more accurate. You will say goodbye to that blurry shots and unstable videos. The Oppo Reno 8 has 2 more camera lenses. Let’s talk about that in detail.


Triple 50 MP, f/1.9, 24mm (wide), 1/1.56″, 1.0µm, PDAF, OIS
8 MP, f/2.2, 16mm, 120˚ (ultrawide), 1/4.0″, 1.12µm
2 MP, f/2.4, (macro)
Features LED flash, HDR, panorama

As I mentioned above that this 50 MP sensor is good. But this Oppo Reno 8 has 2 more camera lenses. There is another camera sensor of 8MP which is an ultra-wide camera. The field of view is 16mm which is wider. This camera sensor also has some amazing autofocus. This sensor can take amazing shots with high accuracy. Its aperture is F/2.2, which makes it sharp and contains good tons on subjects. This Oppo Reno 8 has an amazing camera setup, with fast autofocus lenses, high sensors, and good software optimization. There is another 2MP macro camera which is useless in most situations because it’s only 2MP.

Features Panorama, HDR
Video 1080p@30fps, gyro-EIS

When it comes to selfie cameras the Oppo Reno 8 has a single punch whole camera of 32MP which has the largest pixels. This single-punch whole camera contains some awesome details when it comes to daytime shots. At night time this camera sensor struggles a lot.  And what makes me more concerned is about its aperture because its aperture, which is only F/2.4 which means the photos will look not accurate as other smartphones, also this camera will suffer a lot at night because the sensor is not that wide to capture more light thus leaving us in disappointed. The camera video capabilities are also kept at 1080P at 30FPS only.

You can pay, and transfer files at high speeds thanks to the NFC support.

The Oppo Reno 8 comes with stereo speakers. This Oppo Reno 8 has nice sound quality with a nice amount of bass in it. This will help in gaming because there are two speakers one at the bottom and one at the top which will help gamers. Video watching and hearing to music also going to be good. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is neither good nor bad.


Colors Black, Silver, Mint

The Oppo Reno 8 is going to lunch in three different colors. Black, Silver, and Mint. OPPO is known for its premium colors with good contexts. I like the Black color because it looks better than these two colors.


The price of this smartphone is not revealed yet, but we estimated about $400 is going to be a better price point for this smartphone
