Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — 5G’s unbeatable speed in the Philippines has opened a world of new experiences for the growing generation of content creators. A case in point is the recent tenfold increase in 5G download speeds in the Philippines from October to December 2020. In that same period, the country also recorded the best 5G video experience among emerging markets, according to network performance analytics firm Opensignal.

Global smart device brand OPPO has long anticipated this development and the need for future-proof mobile devices for 5G. It has heavily invested in its mid-premium product OPPO Reno5 5G to bring these innovations, experiences, and features to Filipinos.

“In the long run, 5G will become the norm. Users will likely embrace a smart and multi-scenario future life in which smartphones are set to serve as the most important access point, becoming a hub of an ecosystem that connects an increasing number of smart devices, including smart TVs and smartwatches,” said OPPO Asia Pacific President, Jimmy Yi.

The benefits of a 5G phone


But what are the benefits of having a 5G smartphone vis-a-vis a 4G one? A 5G-enabled smartphone has faster processes, improved performance, and a better overall experience. And with more 5G-enabled technologies being launched in the market, a 5G phone allows seamless connection to these devices.

As for the features, OPPO Reno5 5G features include a 64MP rear quad-cam matrix and a 32MP ultra-clear front camera. There is also the Reno5 5G-exclusive feature, the Portrait Beautification Video which helps identify ethnicity, sex, and age and personalizes the beautification process, including whitening, smoothening, retouching, and reshaping of your face. OPPO Reno5 5G is also equipped with the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash charge technology that lets users do more things and consume less time charging, and it runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G that ensures a smooth and seamless phone-ography experience.

Furthermore, despite the known high-power consumption from the 5G modem, OPPO has developed the Reno5 5G to strike a balance between connectivity and power efficiency. This in turn improves the experience of its customers, who will be able to use their smartphones for longer without a charge.

Designed for Content Creators


A key trend that has emerged in the past year among OPPO’s target audience is the increased interest in content creation. Whether it be for TikTok, YouTube or Instagram, youths are spending more of their free time capturing and sharing moments with their family, friends, and fans in newer and creative ways. OPPO expects more content to be created using mobile phones because of 5G.

Theoretically speaking, 5G could reach up to a whopping 20 Gbps of internet connectivity. This means that 5G’s network speed promises to catalyze explosive growth in video streaming apps, allowing content creators to shoot more videos to share their lives with the world.

“With our latest Reno offering -- Reno5 -- our team aimed to enable users to explore and express their creativity further, equipping them with new cutting-edge technology and introducing new enhanced camera features such as Ultra-Night Video mode and Live HDR which incorporate AI to make pictures looks sharper and more vibrant with improved exposure levels, colors, and customizable light settings,” Yi added.

Another feature that has become popular with OPPO’s market is the AI Mixed Portrait mode that allows users to overlap two different videos, capturing the videographer’s reaction concurrently. The bulk of the effort in making content appealing lies in editing. With Soloop, new content creators can experiment and dabble into video editing with a convenient and user-friendly interface.

“The Reno5 Series stands out in the market because it lets Filipinos #PictureLifeTogether using the newest innovations that OPPO introduces including the OPPO Full Dimension Fusion (FDF) Portrait Video System — an imaging system designed for superior portrait video effects promising creativity and quality combined,” shared OPPO Philippines’ Vice President for National Sales Zen Han.

Seamless and immersive gameplay


With its latest ColorOS 11.1, Reno5 4G, and Reno5 5G users also get the latest AI gaming features for an improved gaming experience that offers faster and interruption-free gameplay: Bullet Screen Message, a feature that provides in-game notification messaging that will be displayed as a burst on the screen letting you receive messages without leaving the game; the Gamer Mode, a feature where it lets you temporarily tune out interruptions so you can focus on winning your game; Gaming Shortcut Mode, a feature where you can go straight to the gaming page in just one tap; and the Adjustable Gaming Touch which lets gamers set their preferred fluidity and touch responsiveness levels for each of their games independently.

OPPO has also forged a year-long partnership with Mineski Philippines to fully realize its plans to expand its market footprint in esports and mobile gaming in the country. With the partnership, OPPO is supporting two of the country’s biggest mobile gaming tournaments: “Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League” and “League of Legends Wild Rift Icon Series 2021."

“Through this collaboration, the company is committed to supporting the growing local esports industry by offering OPPO’s entire ecosystem of products that are not only known as an entertainment powerhouse but also as the next best gaming tools for the everyday Filipino gamers,” Han said.

Along with the current initiatives of OPPO in partnership with Mineski Philippines, the Company has recently introduced its initial roster of its OPPO Gaming Ambassadors Eric “Eruption” Tai, Gloco Gaming, and Ashley Gosiengfiao to further penetrate and reach out to the growing communities of mobile gamers in the country, while sharing more relevant and entertaining content with the OPPO Gaming Ambassadors.

“OPPO has always been supportive to all budding and established content creators in the country, and that includes our esports and gaming content creators who provide quality content for their viewers. With Eruption, Gloco Gaming, and Ashley, OPPO will be able to inspire not just the casual mobile gamers but as well as the aspiring Filipino gaming streamers,” Han shared.

With this, our beloved Filipino consumers have seen our newest Reno5 Series as a smartphone they can trust with their daily content creation, productivity, and entertainment especially for gaming. These were evident through the sentiments that we received during its official launch in the country,” Han said.
