Smartphone concept without burden

The Oppo Reno8 Pro touches users’ lives with a truly manual and instinctive visual feel. Brand designers noticed how people hold and interact with their phones. This research prompted the concept of creating a device without burden – streamlined and ergonomic design. The key element was the design of the camera area that helps, firstly, with a uniform body composition, and secondly, to improve the usability of the smartphone.

The back of the phone is covered by a single piece of glass. For the camera unit, in particular, this ensures that no sudden transition in touch occurs for the user and no dust build-up around the joints of the various materials. In a process of up to 800°C in temperature and 120kg in pressure, the glass is shaped and molded using a mold polished to another eight nanometers to obtain smoother finishes. The result creates a seamless arc in glass to encase the camera unit as one continuous piece.

Since the user is holding the smartphone, the curvature of the glass body perfectly fits his fingertips. The camera module is positioned using a 75-degree bracket that attaches to the surrounding back cover. The lens appears as if it is floating out of water, and it rises prominently in the upper left part of the device. The macro camera, color temperature sensor as well as Ring Flash design are made up of the module. The all-in-one chassis delivers a design with a natural, burden-free user experience.

Upon closer inspection of the design details, the small bevel cut in the center bezel reduces the sharp feel while holding phones normally. This gentle wand ensures an elegant look. The ultra-slim bezels of the 6.7-inch 120Hz ultra-clear AMOLED display are optically complemented by 2.37mm and 1.48mm bezels on the side. The result counterbalances the overflowing look created by the combination of the curved screen and the right-angled center bezel. The highly immersive visual experience is enhanced by the 93.4% screen-to-body ratio. Moreover, OPPO Reno8 pro is the thinnest model in the series so far as it measures only 7.34mm.

From dreamy tones to vibrant colours, Reno8 Pro’s new color finishes offer even more elegant options. Inspired by ceramic glazing techniques, the two options – Glazed Green and Glazed Black – impart a soothing and calming feel that also redefines the look of a traditional black smartphone.
