OPPO Philippines has taken the wraps off its latest Reno models to cater to users who are after a non-flagship phone they can use primarily to create video content — vlogs for YouTube, TikTok clips, or just something they’d like to share with loved ones who may be away from them at this time.

(Update, February 25: F series users, here‘s your chance to trade in your phone for the new OPPO Reno 5 4G.)

(Update, February 11: This 5G phone is mainly for creating videos. Interested in it? Read our OPPO Reno 5 5G review first!)

The company — one of the biggest smartphone vendors worldwide — has launched the 5G and 4G versions of the gorgeous OPPO Reno 5. The 5G-ready unit is priced at P23,999 (around $499 converted) locally. The more affordable, 4G variant, on the other hand, is selling for P18,999 ($395).

Preorder any of the devices between today, February 10, until the 19th, and you get a free Kuyou smartwatch worth P3,999 ($83). You can pre-purchase the OPPO Reno 5 5G and OPPO Reno 5 4G from any OPPO concept or online store, partner dealer, or e-commerce site Shopee or Lazada.

Debuting with the Android 11-based smartphones is the manufacturer’s OPPO Full Dimension Fusion Portrait Video System, which, as we wrote here, is all about integrating imaging hardware and software to make producing stunning portraits and scenery simple for Reno 5 users. Expect features such as the following:

  • Dual-View Video, which lets you shoot videos from the front and rear cameras simultaneously;
  • AI Portrait Beautification Video on the 5G model, which allows for the identification of ethnicity, sex, and age and personalize the beautification process; and
  • AI Mixed Portrait on the 4G version, which brings the double exposure video effect to the Reno, enabling an all-new artistic effect

You can hear more about the videography features from OPPO brand ambassador Mikael Daez himself in the video below.
