Dubai, UAE, 28 March 2023 – With each generation of Reno series smartphones, OPPO has always searched for unique ways to combine innovative technology with stylish design. On the OPPO Reno8 T 5G, the first feature to attract attention is the Dual Micro-Curved Design, an unprecedented flagship-level 3D curved screen with ultra-thin bezels, together with a custom manufactured 3D back cover.
Dual Micro-Curved Design: the ultimate balance between comfort and flagship-level performance
The Reno8 T 5G inherits the compact and lightweight design of the Reno series, measuring approximately just 7.7 mm in thickness and weighing only 171 g. Even with its larger battery and enhanced hardware, holding the phone remains completely effortless and feels as comfortable as ever.
On the front of the phone, the incredible flagship-level 120Hz 3D Curved Screen takes the viewing experience a whole step forward in the mid-priced smartphone segment for the first time. The screen features a special micro curve that has been polished to a precise 56-degree angle with an arc height of 1.9 mm. Alongside the 3D curved design, the larger 6.7-inch, punch-hole AMOLED screen offers a more immersive, boundless viewing experience. This is further enhanced by the screen’s 93% screen-to-body ratio which presents a practically edge-to-edge screen that is even comparable to some existing flagship smartphone models.
The special micro curves of the screen on its left and ride sides give the phone its smooth, rounded appearance and feel enhancing grip and improve touch accuracy, while the super-narrow bezels on all four sides create a truly expanded viewing experience while watching videos, gaming, or reading content.
On the back of the phone, sleek lines extend from the four micro-curved sides of the 3D back cover to the middle frame, creating an integrated silky-smooth design across the entire body. In order to find the most comfortable curve shape for the back cover, the OPPO design team made precision adjustments to the curves at 60-times magnification, repeatedly tuning the shape until they identified a curve that would fit most naturally in the palm of the hand.
OPPO’s exclusive splicing technique adds another visual layer to the 3D back cover
The 3D back cover of the Reno8 T 5G features a distinct hierarchical design that draws attention to three different visual aspects of the phone – the metal decorative base of the Dual Camera Design, the oval panel design surrounding the metal camera decorative base, and the full back cover featuring the stunning OPPO Glow colour finish.
The Dual Camera Design features two camera modules aligned vertically to create a more balanced and concise look. The main 108MP Portrait Camera is housed in the upper module, while the microlens camera, depth camera and flash are found in the lower module. Both camera modules are bonded together by an aluminum alloy metal decorative base that encircles the camera modules at a height 0.2 mm higher than the lenses to protect them from scratches when the phone is placed on a flat surface.
Surrounding the camera area and aluminum base is an oval panel that contrasts against the rest of the back cover material. Special spliced gloss and matte textures have been applied to this oval panel design using an upgraded industry-first, high precision splicing process. To achieve this, a flexible texture mold is first used to carve a 3D texture around the oval area, creating a precisely-controlled deviation of only 0.2 mm between the textures of the two parts. This enables the oval panel design to be mass produced for the first time with this level of balance and layered appearance.
With its fresh stylish Dual Micro-Curved Design, the Reno8 T 5G brings new inspiration to the Reno series thanks to the application of a series of upgraded manufacturing techniques and the integration of more creative and diverse design ideas to the series’ iconic matte-sparkling appearance. OPPO will continue to evolve the unique design language of the Reno series to explore more ways in which visual design and technology can be used to enhance the full user experience.
