Reno8 5G features Dual Sony Flagship Sensors — the IMX709 for the front camera and the IMX766 for the rear camera.
- Sony IMX709 is a next-generation 32 MP camera sensor customized by OPPO.
- Sony IMX766 is a 1/1.56-inch 50MP main camera sensor with a 1.0um large pixel size.
The Dual Sony Flagship Sensors support the underlying DOL-HDR technology on a hardware level, increasing video dynamic range.
This is the first time the Reno series adopts a flagship-level Streamlined Unibody Design. This was done by integrating the camera module and the back cover, making the phone appear smooth and seamless.
