Earlier this week, OPPO launched the new Reno series smartphones in Europe. The OPPO Reno 5G is also the first 5G smartphone to launch in Europe. OPPO mentioned these devices to come with three microphones to record 3D stereo sound. According to the official listing, the devices come with Audio Focus feature in the video recording mode which will balance the audio level depending on the distance of the object focused. Here, the device is might be using Nokia’s OZO Audio Focus technology.
While there is no word of OZO branding in the device listing on the OPPO’s official website, Nokia’s latest earnings report clearly mentioned these smartphones to use the OZO audio technology. The OPPO Reno smartphones with three microphones to support this technology. According to Nokia, it requires at least 2 mics for spatial capture and 4 mics for full 360-degree spatial audio capture. Even the flagship Nokia smartphones from HMD Global also feature the proprietary 3D spatial audio recording technology.
Recently, HMD Global also started offering the OZO Audio even on the budget smartphones like 2019 Nokia 6 (a.k.a Nokia 6.1) which sport dual microphones. However, the OPPO Reno smartphones with three mics should offer better audio output. OPPO will also launch the Reno series in the Indian market.
