Having similar values and goals to encourage individuals to dive deeper and further into your imagination and create a masterpiece is what we are about and this collaboration has built its foundation on that.’’  said Nikki Chen, Marketing Director at OPPO Malaysia.

To kick-start the exciting project, the release of OPPO Reno2 and Starbucks with the launch of OPPO’s 2nd Flagship Store in Pavilion, KL was the perfect duo. As an award-winning premier shopping mall, Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur ushers in a diverse range of the finest selection in shopping and urban leisure. OPPO is excited and proud to present its second flagship store here today. The concept behind OPPO Flagship Store with an experience zone and customer service center is to break down barriers, build better customer relations, and serve our consumers better,” continued Nikki Chen, Marketing Director at OPPO Malaysia.

The OPPO Flagship Store is designed with special sections known as the Experience Zone and Customer Service Zone as OPPO aims to provide consumers a fully immersive IT product shopping space. The service area is built for comfort and inclusiveness, providing transparency in customer service to build trust and have them experience the process first-hand. OPPO wants consumers to indulge in a hands-on experience with all the latest technology and products that they have to offer with their flagship store.

The OPPO Reno2 redraws the boundaries of users’ creativity, coming packed with photography-enhancing features. Take for example, the quad-camera setup which includes 5x Hybrid Zoom, Ultra Dark Mode, and the Ultra Steady Video features. The Reno2’s unique multi-perspective capabilities enable users to see things differently, calling on creators to take their photography to a whole new level by capturing new, fresh perspectives behind the lens.

Advanced Camera Tech Unleashes User Creativity

OPPO is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of mobile photography. The Reno2 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 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 an impressive 116° perspective, bringing out even more different images and photo themes. Users can now shoot vast and boundless landscapes day or night, and even in small or confined spaces, demonstrating the handset’s exceptional performance regardless of the subject or environment.

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 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 Reno2 now users can capture stunning scenes such as fireflies at night and candlelight dinners.

But a single photo can’t tell a whole story, and with social media users increasingly shooting video, OPPO is paying more attention to Videography than before. OPPO’s 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.

User-centric design combines practicality with style

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 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.

The Reno2 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 color shades from different angles. This creation of a varying and dynamic aesthetics contrasts the Reno series, which conveyed a more reserved, static design. They feature rear cameras that remain hidden under the back cover, which itself is made from durable 5th Generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass.

Cutting-edge hardware and software that delivers superb performance

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.

Reno2 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 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 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 4,000mAh (Typ) battery to provide users with a much longer-lasting battery.
