Inheriting previous successes, this year’s Reno12 series product line still carries beautiful design, top portrait photography capabilities and especially the appearance of artificial intelligence features . In this article, we will have our hands on and admire the “most affordable” version – OPPO Reno12 F 5G.

Unbox OPPO Reno12 F 5G

As usual, the OPPO Reno12 F 5G box is still prominently designed with the model number of the Reno series – number 12. The box color is also quite basic with white tones and the words OPPO Reno12 F 5G.

Design and appearance of OPPO Reno12 F 5G

Among the three OPPO Reno12 Series products launched this year, OPPO Reno12F 5F is the lowest-end device, but I feel it stands out more when compared to the other two versions.

The device still retains a thin and light appearance with extremely unique and beautiful back patterns. This back surface is finished in a matte finish, helping to minimize the retention of hand sweat when using the device bare.

The camera cluster is placed in a rectangular module – this camera cluster design is becoming increasingly familiar with smartphone models from Chinese brands.

It can be seen that the edges of the Reno12 F 5G are beveled flat like the vast majority of mid-range smartphones in the past few years.

However, OPPO is also very delicate as it has slightly curved edges, which helps give users a more comfortable and pleasant grip.

OPPO Reno12 F 5G still inherits the characteristics of the previous Reno series – thinness and lightness. The product has dimensions of only 163.1 x 75.8 x 7.76 mm, weighs about 187 grams and is only 7.69mm thick.

This makes the body more comfortable for both men and women when using this device for long periods of time. On the right hand side of the device is where the volume up and down buttons and the power button are located.

The top edge is where the infrared sensor, recording microphone and speaker are located. The bottom edge is the Type-C charging port area, SIM slot and speaker strip.

Users when purchasing the product can choose one of two color versions: Palm Green and Amber Orange. Each color brings a different shade.

This year’s product line is equipped with IP65 water and dust resistance to help protect the device better during this rainy season.

Screen

The most impressive point on the OPPO Reno12 F 5G is the screen with a maximum brightness of up to 2,100 nits. Of course, this number announced by OPPO is only achieved in certain pixels, in certain environments.

However, we must admit that this is the smartphone model with the brightest screen in the segment. Users can use it comfortably under many different lighting conditions, including strong light sources.

OPPO Reno12 F 5G uses a 6.67 inch AMOLED panel, Full HD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. The three-sided screen border is quite thin, but the “chin” part is still a bit thicker.

The mole hole is where the 32MP camera sensor is located. This is still a screen with good display quality in its price range. The outer tempered glass is Asahi Glass AGC Dt-Star2 to help protect the device better, minimizing scratches.

Camera

The rear camera cluster of Reno12 F 5G is placed in a circular module with 3 lenses. The main camera has a resolution of 50MP f/1.8, supports OIS optical image stabilization.

The second camera supports wide-angle photography with 8MP f/2.2 resolution. Finally, there is a sensor that supports “2-dot” portrait photography and LED flash.

One thing I quite like about this lens cluster is that it is finished with a metal protective rim, giving it a quite luxurious feeling similar to other high-end devices. In particular, this camera cluster has very little protrusion.

This helps to limit scratches and makes cleaning the lens easier.

Of course, the product will still maintain its strengths – photography capabilities, especially the ability to process famous portrait photos. As for this part, maybe I will see you again in another review of OPPO Reno12 F 5G.

How is the performance and battery on OPPO Reno12 F 5G?

The device is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity D6300 processor, helping the device operate smoothly and coolly from basic needs to gaming. Of course, this is still not a very sacred machine in terms of its ability to handle heavy games like Genshin Impact .

OPPO Reno12 F 5G has 8GB RAM and 256GB internal memory to help users comfortably store and take photos.

Let’s talk a little bit about the Dimensity D6300 chip, this chip possesses an 8-core CPU structure: 2 high-performance Cortex-A76 cores with a speed of 2.4 GHz and 6 energy-saving 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 cores. Thanks to that, the device can well meet the basic and advanced needs of users.

Inside the device is a 5,000mAh battery and supports 45W charging capacity. That is just enough to meet a long day of use for basic users. Of course, in case the battery runs out, the SuperVOOC charging technology on OPPO Reno12 F 5G will definitely not disappoint you.

AI features on OPPO Reno12 F 5G

At this year’s launch event, OPPO also said that it has cooperated with Google, Microsoft, MediaTek and even Grab to develop a number of new AI features on their product lines. OPPO Reno12 Series is a product line with AI features at the most accessible price to date. However, these features are currently unavailable. Some features include:

  • AI Clear Face and AI Best Face: Automatically identify and edit faces in group photos.
  • AI Studio: Transform photos into different digital avatars or art styles.
  • AI Summary and AI Writer: Create concise summaries from long texts and provide word suggestions.
  • Adaptive Power Management: Optimize power usage for each application.
