Since the Reno 3 series, the Pro version has continued the design of the curved screen, but this generation of Reno 7 Pro has returned to the straight screen design, and the appearance is closer to the previous generation of Reno 6 basic models. Of course, the screen is still an OLED flexible screen. Since it is possible to make curved screens, but the reason why Reno 7 Pro resolutely adopts straight screens, the author has speculated that it may be that the straight screen design of Reno 6 basic model is too successful.

I was very impressed with the size of the previous generation Reno 6 basic model. With the ultra-narrow-edge straight screen and large straight-edge design, the unique, classy and astonishing spirit of OPPO products is shown to its peak. It can also be said in 2K gear. Reno 6 basic model is the most attractive mobile phone.

Reno 6

Oppo Reno 7 Pro continues this design language. The middle frame is made of aerospace aluminum straight-edged metal material, and is frosted, which is not easy to slip. Does not cling to fingerprints, and has a “bling-bling” effect under light.

The middle frame, screen and back cover are also tightly connected. Suddenly without a protective layer of plastic, and the delicate “der” pops up all at once. However, for better signal performance, the antenna injection molding strips on the mid frame of the Reno 7 Pro are actually very high (7), and the arrangement is erratic (optimized for horizontal grip antennae), which is a bit abrupt, and it’s inevitable. . Which has some drawbacks.

Although it is a straight screen, careful observation reveals it. The Oppo Reno 7 Pro uses a 2.5D micro-arc design on the edge of the screen. Which improves the feel through the transition between the right angle frame of glass and metal.

Talking about the beauty of the screen, the phones with very narrow bezels are goons. As per the official data, the Reno 7 Pro has a black border of 1.89mm on the front, a lower border of 2.8mm and a border of 1.55mm on the left and right sides. The narrow range technology is the industry’s top level, and the screen ratio has increased to 92.8%. The front visual sense of integration is very strong.

OPPO Reno 7 Pro 5G 6.55-inch OLED flexible screen

In terms of screen quality, the Reno 7 Pro sports a 6.55-inch OLED flexible screen. Which has upgraded the edge of the screen to prevent Accidental Touch 3.0. It’s still the original 90Hz refresh rate. Supports 1000Hz extreme tactile response, and has a resolution of 2400*1080, which is a bit grainy. The overall look and feel is acceptable. Apart from this, this screen also supports 100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut and HDR10+ display effect. The Gadget Pixels measured 97.9% DCI P3 and 86.6% Adobe RGB.

The body size of OPPO Reno 7 Pro is 158.2mm×73.2mm. Based on the standard 4500mAh battery, the thickness is only 7.45mm. This is the thinnest Renault ever. The weight also continues the traditional advantages of the Renault family. The Pro version weighs around 180 grams, which is thinner and lighter.

Inside the 180g fuselage, there are basic hardware such as X-axis linear motors, dual stereo speakers, NFC, and a 3D continuous cooling central cooling system with a total heat dissipation area of ​​13023mm².

When it comes to Oppo Reno series. That’s why we have to mention that the Reno series uses three generations of Crystal Diamond technology. This time, OPPO did the secondary processing based on the crystal diamond process and applied laser development technology on the glass material to create 1.2 million fine grating lines, giving the glass back shell a three-dimensional touch.

The fuselage is aligned with the lines at an oblique angle of 45°, like in a meteor burst. The double-layer double plating process also gives the fuselage two colors of hot and cold. Which is very romantic. The more important thing is this. That these grating lines also have a three-dimensional touch, and the presence of these “meteors” can be clearly perceived with the touch of a finger.

As for the rear camera module part, the Oppo Reno 7 Pro adopts a stepped design, the upper part is a metal mode, and the lower part is a ceramic colour-plated lens ring. which realizes a light-matte integrated design overall. Under different lighting angles, the ceramic ring at the bottom will also show a light blue and bright white effect. Although it will inevitably be contaminated with fingerprints…

It is worth noting that there is still one big thing hidden under the Reno 7 Pro lens module. Oppo applies the optical fiber bending process to the rear image module, and that’s when a phone call or notification comes in. So it shines like a ring of stars in the night sky. In the early years, breathing lights were all the rage on mobile phones. For many users, the breathing light is as important as the AOD screen. The Star Ring Breathing Light on the Oppo Reno 7 Pro is a model of both appearance and practicality.

Especially after wearing a transparent protective shell, the star ring’s breathable light will “seep” through the protective shell. which is especially evident in dark environments. With the panoramic light effect that comes with the system, whenever there is a notification or a call. So it will become a visual pleasure.

I have to say that the face value design of OPPO Reno 7 Pro has reached a new high. When faced with a face value product like this, I don’t think anyone will be dissuaded.

Camera Images

High-value mobile phones have a mission. Which is to make users more beautiful. This time the focus of Oppo Reno 7 Pro is still on the front. The first is the hardware part. The Reno 7 Pro was first launched with the new RGBW sensor IMX709 with 32 million effective pixels, 1/2.74-inch sensor and f/2.4 aperture. It is understood that the IMX709 integrates Oppo’s self-developed RGBW Image Fusion unit. The RGBW Four-in-One Pixel Fusion algorithm produces 2 W pixels in each group of 4 sub-pixels to increase light sensitivity and improve low-light shooting performance.

According to official data, compared to the IMX615 used by the Reno 6, the IMX709 has a 60% increase in sensitivity and a 35% reduction in noise.

In addition, the IMX709 super-sensitive cat-eye lens allows for three shooting capabilities: main camera, wide-angle, and black and white. It also supports compatibility with various SoC platforms and third-party apps. It now supports WeChat and Zoom, which greatly improves the quality of video calls. It is worth mentioning that the IMX709 is not only the first Oppo but also a permanent exclusive.

In terms of software optimization and functions, the Oppo Reno 7 Pro brings Moonlight Night Scene algorithm, LiveHDR algorithm, Portrait Blur and hardware-level DOL-HDR, and the dynamic range can be increased up to 200%.

Portrait video is also a key feature of the Oppo Reno series. On Reno 7 Pro, Oppo brings more gameplay: including mood filter, light spot portrait, multiple scene recording at the same time, one-click smart filming, AI video beauty, AI Huan Adopt Beauty 2.0, Flash Capture, video super anti- Shake and soon.

Firstly, OPPO Reno 7 Pro equipped with new RGBW sensor IMX709 has very powerful light-sensing performance, especially for shooting proof/video in backlighting, night and other environments, IMX709 can bring very good dynamic range performance.

Take indoor backlit portrait video as an example (first you need to turn on AI Scene Enhancement on the camera interface). When AI Scene Enhancement is on, you can clearly see that the dynamic range of the picture is high (outside the window in the back of the picture below).

At this moment, click on the Iris button to turn on Portrait Mode. With the help of LiveHDR algorithm, in the environment with large light ratio, the picture not only has a good tolerance performance, but also the picture and background are very clear.

In the previous generation of Oppo Reno 6 series, Oppo brought a bright spot portrait video function. With the help of the mobile phone’s large aperture and shallow depth of field, the protagonist of the portrait can be locked in at all times. Whether it is day or night, you can make glowing colored lights and shadows your home area.

The bright spot portrait video function has also been added to the front camera with the help of IMX709’s excellent hardware foundation in OPPO Reno 7 Pro. In front camera shooting, select Portrait Mode-Filter, click the Light Spot button on the right. You can select Light Spot Portrait video shooting.

Similarly, in the front camera, the Reno 7 series also offers “beauty” and “beauty”. The former include more elaborate manual grooming methods. Such as microdermabrasion, thinning of the face, big eyes, thin nose, chin, and so on. Or, it offers a variety of different styles of beauty makeup. In this mode, you can achieve a more aesthetic effect than after makeup without makeup.

It needs to be emphasized that the three functions of Light Spot Portrait, Beauty and Makeup can be turned on when shooting still photos, portraits and dynamic videos (portrait video) with the front lens. In other words, users can choose light spot portraits, beauties and makeup as they wish. Whether they are taking selfies or pre-videos, so that their static and dynamic proofs become more beautiful and exciting.

In the rear lens section, OPPO Reno 7 Pro is equipped with 50MP main camera + 8MP super wide-angle + 2MP macro triple camera system. Out of which the main camera is IMX766 with f/1.8 aperture. IMX766 can be said to be very familiar to everyone. This year OPPO’s flagship CMOS is equipped with mobile phones like Find X3 series and Reno 6 Super Cup. So naturally you don’t have to worry about the main image performance of the Oppo Reno 7 Pro.

Not much to say, let’s go straight to the proof section:

In broad daylight, the stable proofs of the Oppo Reno 7 Pro still continue the usual true restoration style of Oppo. You see what you take, and the exposure control is excellent too. 8 million ultra-wide-angle can basically meet the daily shooting needs of users.

However, compared to its flagship Find X3 series, the IMX766 on the Reno 7 Pro is still less polished. For example, the colors of the sky and the ground are a bit strange. Obviously, the white balance is not well controlled. In addition, the details of the evidence have been extended. Some are also missing. Clearly there is still room for optimization on this IMX766.

The performance of OPPO Reno 7 Pro at night is acceptable. The main camera IMX766 has a 1/1.56 inch outsole and a 1.0μm large pixel. Which provides a relatively good hardware base. Hence, the performance of OPPO Reno 7 Pro is not bad in most of the scenarios. , by contrast, this 8 mil ultra-wide-angle can only be quite satisfying at night. Even after turning on the night scene, the detail of dark parts increases. But the noise also increases, which can be said enough.

Overall, the core of the Oppo Reno 7 Pro’s image lies in shooting front-facing selfies and portraits. With the new RGBW sensor IMX709 with Portrait, Beauty algorithm and rich portrait video gameplay, OPPO Reno 7 Pro can bring users the very best selfie and portrait video, shooting experience.

Performance Experience

In terms of performance, the Oppo Reno7 Pro is equipped with Dimensity 1200-Max flagship chip and UFS3.1 flash memory, 12GB+256GB large memory (up to 12GB+7GB dynamic game storage expandable).

There isn’t much news on the Internet about the Dimension 1200-MAX. This can basically be concluded. That this is the Oppo customized version of the Dimension 1200. In terms of specifications, it adopts 6nm flagship process technology, 1+3+4 three-cluster architecture, and the super-large core frequency has reached 3.0GHz. Mainly used for instantaneous overweight and complex calculations. Three 2.6GHz A78 cores are used for long hours of high-performance continuous output, and four 2.0GHz A55 energy-efficient cores make daily lighting use more energy-efficient.

From an architectural point of view, the Dimensity 1200-Max is basically the same as the Dimension 1200, and the theoretical running score is between the Snapdragon 865+ and the Snapdragon 870. Hence, the performance of this generation of Oppo Reno 7 Pro is also prominent.

The Gadget Pixels tested the AnTuTu, Geekbench5 and Androbench running points of the OPPO Reno 7 Pro.

OPPO Reno 7 Pro 5G AnTuTu, Geekbench5 and Androbench running points

In AnTuTu v9 running score, OPPO Reno7 Pro scored 690,000+ points; In the Geekbench 5.1 test, the single-core score reached 817 points, and the multi-core score reached 2732 points; In Androbench testing, sequential reads and writes are all appropriate, UFS 3.1 level.

The Gadget Pixels also tested 3DMark’s Wildlife Stress Test project, and conducted 20 consecutive rounds of high-intensity tests to show the mobile phone’s heat dissipation and performance release stability. In this test, the Oppo Reno 7 Pro achieved a stability of 99.1%, which is comparable to the previous generation of Reno 6 Pro. The increase of 60.1% is very obvious, which clearly plays a role in the excellent heat dissipation system.

In terms of games, the Gadget Pixels chose “Original God” for the first performance test.

In the game “Original God”, we chose High-end image quality + 60 frames, Motion blur is turned off. The scene is still wild, and the “90FPS Limit Stabilization” of the Oppo Reno 7 series is on.

OPPO Reno 7 Pro 5G Original God Gaming Performance

In the 20-minute “Original God” game, the Oppo Reno7 Pro achieved an average frame rate of 40.47FPS.

Especially after the system’s “90FPS limit stabilization” is turned on, the frame rate is obviously more stable, and the phenomenon of large area and large frame rate fluctuations is further reduced. , the drama experience is relatively good.

Oppo Reno 7 Pro is equipped with a 3D constant cooling central cooling system. The system is composed of three parts: a central thermally conductive structure, ultra-density graphite sheets, and superconducting vacuum VC liquid cooling. The total heat dissipation area is as high as 13023mm². I can really feel the apparent impact of the system—after 20 minutes of gaming, the temperature at the back of the fuselage is as high as 40.1°C, which is a decent performance.

In the most high-end picture quality (up to 60 frames), the Oppo Reno 7 Pro achieved a full frame result of 60.96fps, which isn’t uncommon.

up to 60 frames

For the charging part, the Reno 7 Pro is equipped with the familiar 65W Super Flash Charge. However it has been passed down for three generations. But the 65W speed is still pretty fast. The 4500mAh battery can basically be fully charged in about 35 minutes. This speed is enough to meet the daily needs of the users.

System Experience

The Oppo ColorOS 12 system was officially launched in September this year at the Oppo Autumn New Product Launch conference. Compared to the previous generation, ColorOS 12 adopts a new design for comfort and noise reduction. It further upgrades in terms of privacy and security, and a full view also brings a unified functional experience. In addition, innovative upgrades to a range of functions, such as Free Floating Window, Smart Sidebar 2.0 and Quick View Card, make the ColorOS system easy to use.

In the “ColorOS 12 System Getting Started” evaluation article, the Gadget Pixels takes a deep look at the ColorOS 12 system. Here are some key features and a brief description.

Firstly, in terms of gaming, the Oppo Reno 7 series is equipped with the latest “Super Lightning Start” 2.0 technology.

In the past, when we used to play games, we would sometimes turn the game on in the background. After some time, we needed to reload or restart the game. Under the “Super Lightning Startup” 2.0 technology, the system will keep the games that users often play in the background according to the user’s machine habits, and the loading animation can be skipped the next time the game is opened, and the game Is opened in seconds.

 Reno 7 Pro Taskbar Preview

According to official data, the launch of the “League of Legends mobile game” is 28 seconds faster than the launch of Super Lightning Launch 2.0. According to Gadget Pixels actual measurements, the “League of Legends mobile game” is about 20 minutes in the background, and can be opened in seconds without any load when you switch back.

Apart from this, the shortcut toolbar provided in the game also has functions like 4D vibration, game filter, feel adjustment, performance mode, game sound change etc.

In addition to games, the ColorOS 12 system also brings 36 months of Smooth Dual Engine, including Quantum Animation Engine 3.0 and AI Self-Smooth Engine 2.0. According to official data, based on AI Self-Smooth Engine 2.0, the phone’s memory footprint is reduced by 30%. Background power consumption is reduced by 20%. The battery life of the mobile phone is increased by 12% on average, and it also brings about 36 months of smooth maintenance.

Quantum Animation Engine 3.0 introduces the concept of “quality” for the first time. Uses 300+ advanced animations to help you discover the physical feeling of the real world. As far as the subjective sentiment of the author is concerned. ColorOS 12’s animation is more delicate and real. Take the sliding up and down of the setting interface as an example, you will feel the continuity of the sliding, which is non-linear. How much force do you use to slide the screen? What kind of sliding animation is given to you based on this force the screen will be, and when sliding to the end, the screen scrolling will not stop suddenly. Rather like a sliding piece of soap. In the bath, slowly glide to the end, and then return again. At the same time, it is accompanied by the weak vibration response of the linear motor, which is very real.

gif recording has dropped frame only for example

For example, in terms of privacy protection, ColorOS 12 has upgraded several highlights as well. Including application behavior record, secure photo sharing, sensitive permission reminder, fuzzy positioning and more. Take “Photo Safe Sharing” for example. When sharing a picture or video through an album, you can choose to remove location information and data for pictures and videos without worrying about the risk of privacy leakage.

Also, Emoji is one of the highlights of ColorOS 12. According to the official description, the face capture algorithm builds a high-precision 3D model based on 50 core expression bases. Omoji has 10 built-in types covering skin tone, hairstyle, eyes, nose and more.

Image features, a total of 200+ trendy clothing elements and emoji, you can apply these emoji to your Oppo account, and even display them in WeChat, Tencent Meeting and Zoom video calls.

Oppo Reno 7 Pro Emojis


The high-value design, excellent portrait shooting and stable gaming experience are still the core competitiveness of the Oppo Reno 7 series. Notably, the Oppo Reno 7 series has greatly enhanced front-facing image and portrait shooting. Which is very suitable for those who like to take selfies. Likes to share selfies, and chases “beauty”, Of course, this “beauty” isn’t just limited to the beauty of selfies. The beauty of portrait video, including mobile phone design, system UI and other aspects, I believe. That the Oppo Reno 7 series will be the most suitable and comfortable option for these consumers.
