MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX’s integrated 5G system on chip (SoC) is at the core of delivering the smooth overall Reno8 Pro 5G experience.
The chipset is an integrated circuit that acts like a traffic controller on the motherboard to manage the flow of data between the CPU, memory, and peripherals.
MediaTek chipset is claimed to be the most energy efficient processor in the market. The leading 5nm MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX SoC ensures smooth processing, even during multiplayer games. Power consumption has been reduced, with a lower overheating while using a higher frame rate and longer battery life than its predecessors. The RAM is 8GB expandable by 5GB, for a total of 13GB.
Powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX chipset, the Reno8 Pro offers 20% more GPU frequency and a supercharged CPU that delivers 25% more power than its predecessor. MediaTek’s fifth-generation AI processor, this chipset is 2.75 times faster than previous generations, delivering improved power, performance, and power density. The AI processor optimizes graphics for media-heavy applications such as photo-editing applications.
The chip powers the Reno8 Pro’s 6.7-inch full-HD AMOLED display that has a 120Hz refresh rate and 1000Hz ultra-high touch response time, making navigating through apps or social media feeds smooth, responsive, and snappy without overheating.
MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX incorporates powerful hybrid coexistence technologies that allow Reno8 Pro to offer a fast and stable Internet connection with the lowest latency yet. The X-Axis Linear Actuator provides enhanced haptic vibrations for realism, which simulates the sense of touch and delivers tactile experiences.
SuperVOOC, Oppo’s proprietary flash charging technology, can charge the Reno8 Pro 5G’s 4,500mAh battery to 50% in 11 minutes, and a 5-minute charge is enough to provide 2 hours of mobile gaming.
With a long-lasting battery, with the help of the Battery Health Engine, the Reno8 Pro 5G’s battery life can be extended by up to 1,600 charge/discharge cycles, or nearly four years of average use.
The device includes 4K Ultra Night Video, along with high dynamic range, up to 20% faster image processing, and high detail and color accuracy in low-light scenes.
- Available in glaze green and glaze black, the OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G can retail from R16,999 for the OPPO Reno8 5G and R19,999 for the OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G.
