The OPPO Reno 5 is expected to hit the country later this month, but no exact release date has been announced yet

The newest addition to OPPO’s ever-growing family of Reno phones, the Reno 5, is scheduled to launch in the Philippines some time this January, about a month after its initial launch in China. 

Much like its predecessors, the Reno 5 focuses on camera performance, touting a couple of new innovations in that department, which the company talked about in a recent online media event. 

OPPO said the Reno 5 touts an “unmatched video experience” thanks to its Full Dimension Fusion (FDF), an imaging system that integrates hardware with processing algorithms. 

While this concept is not exactly new and unique, the company said that its strength lies in its ability to develop imaging systems that satisfy the needs of its users. 

The Reno 5’s FDF system is built on two proprietary engines of OPPO: the Quality Enhancement Engine and the Portrait Perception Engine.

Quality Enhancement Engine

The Quality Enhancement Engine supports two core features on the Reno 5 series: AI Highlight Video and Ultra Steady Video 3.0.

The AI Highlight Video can correct images to an appropriate level of brightness. So, if you’re shooting in a dark environment, for example, the AI software can adjust the lighting where the subject is visible. The same goes for when you’re in an overly bright place. 

Additionally, the cameras boast improved dynamic range, colors, and clarity. This lets you play with an image’s brightness without any loss in quality. 

You only need to press one button in the camera app and the AI will reportedly identify the light in a scene and optimize it accordingly. This is all done in real-time and only takes 20ms, according to OPPO. 

It’s available on both the font and rear cameras of the Reno 5.

OPPO also said that the feature can increase image brightness by up to 74.4% and clarity by up to 33.7%.

Ultra Steady Video 3.0, meanwhile, is the company’s image stabilization software, which essentially reduces the shakiness of handheld videos. 

Portrait Perception Engine

The Portrait Perception Engine uses AI to identify human subjects and optimize how they appear with respect to the background.

It does this by analyzing the scene and comparing it with over 10 million data entries from OPPO’s own database. Then, it separates the subject from the background, so that another algorithm can optimize individual faces, track motion, or highlight specific segments in the scene. 

The company said the AI is smart enough to do this even with the subject slightly obscured or turned to the side. And it does all this in less than a second. 

You can expect to hear more about the Reno 5 in the coming week leading up to its launch, but an exact release date has yet to be announced. – Rappler.com
