OPPO Reno6 Z 5G is available in stores and authorized dealers for P19,999

The OPPO Reno6 Z 5G is probably the thinnest mobile we’ve held so far this year. At 7.92 mm and 179 grams, it is sleek and lightweight.  This is perfect for content creators or any photography/videography enthusiasts looking for a powerful, creative, and convenient mobile experience. 

Achieve Professional Quality Photos

OPPO mobile devices are expected to stand out from its contemporaries in terms of camera and video features. The OPPO Reno6 Z 5G has a quad camera setup with 64MP (main), 8MP (wide), 2MP (macro), and 32MP (front) camera specs and settings. The rear camera produces clear quality photos because of the AI function. When using the main camera and you want to further highlight the subject, like how you’d normally use your DSLRs, you can opt to use its Bokeh Flare Portrait feature. It blurs the background (but not like the Photoshop blur that looks inauthentic) to keep the subject in focus, allowing you to show #EveryEmotionInPortrait. 

Create Impressive Video Content sans DSLR/Editing Apps

An exciting video feature of this device is the ability to record from the front and rear camera simultaneously. This is perfect for creators who would like to capture two different angles of a story without the need for another device.

Another aspect that will interest content creators is the ability of this mobile to enhance videos without the need for editing apps. Through the Portrait Beautification Video function, blemishes on the subject’s skin are removed and eyes are brightened. 

Go Play

The OPPO Reno6 Z 5G is also capable of playing mobile video games supported by its MediaTek Dimensity 800U and 60hz refresh rate allowing a continuous gameplay time on this mobile phone. This device is impressive as it allows smooth game play. And even after hours of use, it doesn’t heat up. 

The only downside  is its limited sound volume level. It only has one built-in speaker. This could be resolved though through the use of external audio sources, like the earphone piece that comes with the package, or one can opt to purchase the OPPO Enco Air that gives an extended audio experience while you listen to music and play your favorite mobile games.

Enjoy the Aesthetics

The OPPO Reno6 Z 5G, similar to the phones in this series, is aesthetically pleasing. It comes with a matte-finished back panel made of polycarbonate plastic that complements the 6.4″ AMOLED display. It has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection which makes it look classy and stylish while being protected from the impact of drops.
