Smartphone innovation may have reached the peak for now. What else can a handset maker can innovate after under display camera, in-display fingerprint sensor, high refresh rate and crazy fast charging? Oh, wait. How about throwing a glow-in-the-dark element?

Glow-in-the-dark is exactly what the new Oppo Reno5 Series has. Not only the camera bump has gotten the glowing treatment, the top side has it too. Why glow-in-the-dark? I have no idea. Then again, it does look pretty cool… when in the dark and if the device have absorb enough of light to do so.

Outside of this glowing gimmick, Oppo is betting big on mobile imaging. To this end, videography plays a major part. In addition to a 32 MP front-facing hole punch camera on its 90 Hz 6.55-inch FHD+ OLED display (or 6.43-inch, in the case of the non-Pro model), it has a got a 64 MP AI quad camera setup that touts portrait videography.
