For years, the Reno series has been the epicenter of OPPO’s camera innovations. The brand recently introduced the OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G which stands out for its camera technologies, with a special focus on elevating the portrait game.

As a photography enthusiast, I’m always on the lookout for cutting-edge tech, and the Reno11 Pro 5G’s camera is a treat to use since it focuses on authentic and pro-grade portraits becoming the ultimate portrait expert in its price segment. Priced neatly at INR 39,999 the device is available for purchase from Flipkart, OPPO E-Store, and mainline retail outlets. Here’s a breakdown of all the innovative camera technologies that make the Reno11 Pro 5G worth consideration for all those who are looking for a smartphone with brilliant portrait capabilities.

OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G Camera Hardware

The phone features a 50MP primary camera with a Sony IMX890 sensor, an f/1.8 aperture lens, and a 24mm focal length. This camera is equipped with Optical Image Stabilization for steady shots. Additionally, there’s a 32MP Sony IMX709 Telephoto camera with an f/2 aperture lens and a 47mm focal length, ideal for close-ups and detailed portraits. For capturing breathtaking landscapes and expansive architecture, the phone includes an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a Sony IMX355 sensor, an f/2.2 aperture lens, and a 112-degree field of view (FOV) at a 16mm focal length.

Moreover, a 32MP Sony IMX709 sensor with autofocus allows you to capture self-portraits with a 0.8X to 2X zoom, delivering stunning bokeh. The combination of OPPO’s camera software and the latest Sony sensors ensures you can record ultra-steady and ultra-clear 4K videos using both the front and rear cameras.

Now, let’s delve into what truly makes the Reno11 Pro 5G stand out: OPPO’s cutting-edge camera algorithms.

Pro-grade Portrait Shots

When I take a portrait shot on the OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G, it reminds me of those times when my cousin used to flaunt his professional camera systems at family gatherings. With this device, I don’t need a fancy camera as it achieves breathtaking results through the use of OPPO’s Portrait Expert Engine and AI Portrait Retouching. OPPO teamed up with real leading portrait photographers from all over the world to learn about different skin tones, and textures, and even how to capture those tiny details that make a face unique. They poured all that knowledge into the Reno11 Pro 5G’s Portrait Expert Engine and AI Portrait Retouching.

Here’s how OPPO’s Portrait Algorithms work:

Firstly, as you switch to portrait mode, the camera’s smart algorithms instantly start recognizing your face and separate it from the background.

Next up, the AI identifies your skin tone and preserves your special marks, like moles or freckles, because they’re part of what makes you, you.

Once done with skin tones, the OPPO engine algorithms work their magic, cleaning up the image and making everything sharp and crisp.

Lastly, the tone mapping algorithm adjusts the light, colors, and textures to create that perfect mood.

The result? Portraits that look like they were taken by a professional, with your unique charm preserved.

That’s not all, OPPO’s new camera algorithms with advanced in-sensor zoom technology, allow Reno11 Pro 5G crisp portrait shots with up to 5x zoom.

HyperTone Image Engine

The impressive portrait shots have been made possible by the HyperTone Image Engine, skillfully developed by OPPO engineers. The HyperTone Image Engine was initially introduced with OPPO’s flagship models including, the Find X7 Pro. OPPO has since enhanced and incorporated these advanced algorithms into the camera of the Reno11 Pro 5G.

But how does the HyperTone Image Engine work? Let me break it down for you:

When you press the shutter button on your OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G, it captures a series of uncompressed RAW images and combines them using deep pixel fusion to produce an exceptionally sharp final image. However, the HyperTone Image Engine doesn’t stop there. It then employs AI-based noise reduction and demosaic algorithms, which effectively minimize noise, correct colors, and enhance dynamic range.

The result? Thanks to the HyperTone Image Engine, you receive clear, sharp images with precise colors and an impressive dynamic range.

Self Portraits

The selfie camera of the OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G also impressed us with its results. It stands out because OPPO’s AI Portrait Retouching algorithms do not work like phones that apply the same beautification mask to everyone, making you appear doll-like. Instead, OPPO’s AI algorithms study my face like a professional artist and enhance my natural beauty thanks to its understanding of 296 facial parameters. These algorithms work with self as well as group portraits. That’s right, the Reno11 Pro 5G selfie camera lets us take selfies in 0.8x, 1x, and with ultra-clear 2x zoom.

OPPO Reno 11 Pro 5G Camera Algorithms Changing Portrait Game in Mid-Tier Segment

Rating: 4 stars out of 5.

OPPO has truly changed the mid-tier portrait game with its relentless camera innovation. The OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G’s advanced features, like the HyperTone Image Engine and Portrait Expert Algorithms, give you authentic, personalized portraits that are ready to flaunt. If I must rate the Reno11 Pro 5G camera, I would happily rate it 4 stars out of 5.

Beyond its exceptional camera capabilities, the OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G is more than meets the eye. Powered by a robust 4nm-based MediaTek Dimensity 8200 chipset, it delivers reliable performance. Paired with 12GB LPDDR5X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, this phone ensures a smooth and efficient user experience.

The Reno11 Pro 5G also benefits from the Android 14-based ColorOS 14, featuring the Trinity Engine to keep your phone consistently fast and smooth year after year. With a 4600 mAh battery supported by a whopping 80W SUPERVOOCTM charging what more can you ask for?

The device is available for purchase at Flipkart, OPPO E-Store, and other major retail stores! The OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G comes in a sleek 12GB RAM and 256GB storage combo for Rs. 39,999. Choose your shade – Pearl White or Rock Grey – and get ready to take your pics to the next level. Unlock your inner photographer and let the world see your unique beauty, one portrait at a time!
