Design and display

The back panel houses a newly designed squarish-shaped camera module that elevates from the back panel. Similarly, the notification light around the camera panel seen on the Reno 7 series has been abandoned this time by the Reno 8 series.
The phone weighs around 183 grams and is just 7.34mm thick, making it comfortable on the hands. The phone is available in Glazed black and Glazed green colours.
The Oppo Reno 8 Pro features a 6.70-inch AMOLED panel on the front. The panel has a resolution of 1,080*2,412 pixels with 394 PPI density. Furthermore, the panel also supports 120Hz refresh rate, 360Hz touch sampling rate and HDR10+ feature for smooth and dynamic view. The display can also achieve a peak brightness of up to 950 nits, which means the content should be pretty much visible even during the daytime. Furthermore, there is an in-display fingerprint sensor on the phone for biometrics. Although the display has Gorilla Glass 5 protection there is no mention of IP certification.
Oppo Reno 8 Pro has similar camera specifications to that of Reno 7 Pro. The phone features a triple camera sensor on the back while has a single camera sensor on the front. The main 50MP camera sensor on the back is accompanied by an 8MP, 112- degrees ultrawide and a 2MP macro sensor. On the front is a 32MP selfie shooter with an aperture of f/2.4 and HDR feature.
The camera shares similar photography and videography features to its predecessors. The main camera can record videos in 4K resolution videos at 30 fps while it can record 1080p resolution videos up to 120 fps. The previous model of the phone only supported video stabilisation in 1080p resolution at 30fps. But, hopefully, there is an upgrade on this model.
For the front camera, it can record 1080p resolution videos at 30 fps and features gyro-EIS.
Performance and storage
Oppo Reno 8 Pro gets a massive boost on performance. The phone runs on ColorsOS 12.1 based on the latest Android 12.
