Oppo Reno 7 Pro is one of the three smartphones released in the Oppo Reno 7 lineup recently.
Though the phones were released long ago in China, it now has been finally launched in the Indian market as well. The phone is yet to arrive in Nepal but is expected soon.
Today, we will be discussing Reno 7 Pro, the best offering in the Reno 7 series.
Oppo Reno 7 Pro is the successor of Oppo Reno 6 Pro which was released last year. It comes with some upgrades from the previous version, in particular, design and display. However, it might be difficult for the product to compete in the market given its high price for the same or similar features.
Though there was no official release of the Reno 6 Pro from Oppo in Nepal, various outlets such as Daraz online shopping made the phone available to purchase here. The same is likely with Oppo Reno 7 Pro also.

Design and display
Oppo Reno 7 Pro flaunts a new boxy look as it appears. The phone has flat edges and round corners. The phone has a glass front and glass back along with an aluminium frame build. Major upgrades have been made in terms of the design of this phone. Oppo is using wear-resistant coated ceramic and metal on the phone to make the cameras more noticeable and protect them at the same time. This innovation also adds an elegant touch to the device.
Oppo also claims to be the first in the industry to use hot-bent optical fibre technology. It allows light to quietly glow around the camera piece in the form of a 3D orbit breathing light. The light informs the users of incoming calls, new notifications, and more.
The back of the Oppo Reno 7 Pro is designed in a way that reflects lights and produces beautiful colours. The back is also smudge-free. The phone weighs around 180 grams and is 7.45mm thick making it comfortable on the hands and inside the pocket as well.
There is a 6.50-inch AMOLED display on the phone with a resolution of 1,080*2,400 pixels. The display on the phone supports a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ feature for a smooth and dynamic view. It can also achieve a peak brightness of up to 920 nits. The display also covers about 92.8% of the body, giving an immersive viewing experience to the users. The display on this phone is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. There is no mention of IP certification on the phone.
Oppo Reno 7 Pro goes with a triple camera setup instead of the quad-camera setup seen on the Reno 6 Pro. The main 50MP Sony IMX766 camera on the back is accompanied by an 8MP, with 119 degrees FOV ultrawide and a 2MP macro lens. There is also a colour temperature sensor and an LED flashlight housed together on the camera module.
On the front, there is a 32MP camera with an aperture of f/2.4. The cameras on the phone have exciting features for the users. The phone offers shooting modes like the photo, video, night, expert, panorama, portrait, time-lapse, dual-view video, slow-motion, text scanner, extra HD, macro, movie, sticker, and Google lens.
The main camera on Oppo Reno 7 Pro can record videos in 4K resolution but only in 30fps and does not support video stabilisation in this resolution. The camera only supports video stabilisation in 1080p @ 30fps, which is the same for the front camera as well. The main camera also can record videos in slo-mo and has zoom features that are not available on the front camera.
Performance and memory
There is a 12GB LPDDR4X RAM onboard the phone which can be further expanded by 7GB. This can help in boosting the performance of the phone and can be extremely handy during intensive gaming and heavy-duty multitasking. The phone also features an AI frame rate stabiliser that is said to prevent frame-rate loss and lagging during gaming.
The phone features 256GB of internal storage and there is no option of expanding the memory with a microSD card.
Battery life, connectivity and others
Oppo Reno 7 Pro features a 4500mAh, non-removable li-po battery which supports 65W SUPERVOOC fast charging. This fast charger gets the phone fully charged in just 31 minutes and the company claims even five minutes of charging can provide four hours of video playback time.
Oppo Reno 7 Pro supports two sim cards, out of which only 1 supports a 5G network. The phone also supports dual-band Wifi, Wifi6 and Bluetooth 5.2 for further connectivity. The phone supports a Type-C cable for charging and connecting with other devices. For audio, there are stereo speakers on the phone and also a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The price of the Oppo Reno 7 Pro is INR 39,999 and we can expect a price range of around Rs 70,000 when the phone is available here.
