Oppo Reno 12 and 12 Pro Launched in Europe with Refreshed Hardware


Oppo Reno12

Oppo is unveiling its Oppo Reno12 series in Europe today. However, smartphones bring some differences from their Chinese counterparts. This is a recurring strategy for the Reno series, and the 12 repeats this with a new energy-efficient chipset, AI functionality, and new communication features for emergencies.

Oppo Reno12 and Reno12 Pro Bring Dimensity 7300-Energy CPU

The first big difference is the presence of a Dimensity 7300-Energy chipset. The chipset comes from a collaboration between MediaTek and Oppo to deliver “exceptional power efficiency”. Typically, the Dimensity 7300 brings 4 x ARM Cortex-A78 cores with a 2.5 GHz clock speed for demanding tasks and 4 x ARM Cortex-A55 cores with a 2 GHz clock for efficiency. The GPU is a Mali G615 MC2. We don’t know exactly which tweaks Oppo applied to make it more efficient, but generally, this chipset is quite efficient.

Besides the new chipset, the phones come with 12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM with 256 GB or 512 GB of Internal Storage. Interestingly, the phones support memory expansion with a micro SD card slot. This is something new for Oppo smartphones. The operating system also offers 12 GB of Virtual RAM, which takes some of your internal storage.

The Oppo Reno 12 and 12 Pro feature the same 6.7-inch OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution (20:9). It offers support for HDR10+ and has a peak brightness of 1,200 nits. The Oppo Reno12 Pro features Gorilla Glass Victus, while the vanilla boasts the new Gorilla Glass 7i for affordable devices.

Camera and AI Features

In terms of optics, the Oppo Reno12 Pro is equipped with superior cameras. For example, it has a 50 MP Sony LYT600 shooter with f/1.8 aperture and OIS. The phone also has an 8 MP ultrawide shooter with an IMX355 sensor. Finally, we have a 50 MP Samsung JN5 sensor with a 2x lens. The same 50 MP camera is present on the front with a wide 21 mm lens and autofocus. Thanks to this powerful combination, Oppo touts the phone as a Portrait Expert. Both cameras can record 4K videos at 30 fps.

The Oppo Reno12 features the same main and ultra-wide cameras, however, it misses out on the telephoto snapper. The phone has a selfie camera with a 32 MP unit inside and there is also a 21mm lens with phase detection autofocus, which adds value to the selfie department.

Both devices come with a set of AI features like AI Clear Face, which works by enhancing facial contour, hair, and eyebrows. The AI Best Face makes sure that everyone in the shot has their eyes open. Oppo also updated the AI Eraser which detects elements and allows you to remove them to make your images more focused. For text and speech, the AI Toolbox consists of AI Write, AI Speak, and AI Summary, which leverage Google’s Gemini Model. The Recording App also has an AI Recording Summary feature. It creates text summaries and organizes them into notes that highlight to-do lists, times, locations, and other key information.

Both phones bring the same 5,000 mAh battery capacity with 80W SuperVOOC charging. Unfortunately, neither model ships with a charger. So you have to acquire a charger separately capable of acquiring such capacities. USB-PD is supported, but it provides only 55W charging. Your best bet is to acquire a SuperVOOC Charger with 80W or higher charging rate. The Reno12 is 7.6mm thick and weighs 177g while the Pro is 7.40mm thick in the Nebula Black color, and 7.45mm in the Nebula Silver option. The former has 180 grams, and the latter 181 grams. Both smartphones are rated IP65 for dust and water resistance.

Pricing and Availability

The Oppo Reno12 costs €500 (12GB/256GB) and will be available on June 25 in Astro Silver and Black Brown colors. The Oppo Reno12 Pro is €600 (12GB/512GB) and is already on sale in Nebula Black and Nebula Silver color options.
