The patented Reno Glow technology is a unique diamond cutting technique applied on glass that gives the phones a transparent, yet dazzling tone on the back cover. Working with traditional anti-glare (AG) glass, OPPO’s R&D team pioneered new techniques of crystal drilling, suspended coating and light path texture to give the phones a matte finish with glittery details. Based on the design-led nature of the Reno series, OPPO worked with Pantone Color Institute to jointly innovate an exclusive Galactic Blue colour for the Reno4 series. Reno Glow was then applied to the Galactic Blue on Reno4 Pro 5G, making the smartphone a symbol of youth culture and fashion.
It took the OPPO design team 200 rounds of process and parameter adjustments to arrive at the Reno Glow technique. As a leading technology company, OPPO has also pledged, in 2019, USD 7.2 billion in R&D over the next three years to integrate all its products and users into a multiple-access smart device ecosystem.
The Reno Glow technique involves three layers. Firstly, the Crystal drilling technique forms millions of micron-level Prisma crystal pits on the surface of the glass that glows under light, giving the effect of a million twinkling stars. An enhanced Suspended coating technique reduces the size of colour particles in the glass by 70% and increases the colour accuracy by 16 times, giving it a smooth, gradient effect. And finally, the light-path texture was transformed so that the UV transfer printing light paths in the lower layer of the AG glass processed more than 3,000 light paths one by one, increasing the reflection rate by 20% to 30% and giving a three-dimensional effect. The end result of Reno Glow gives the look of a million crystal planes shining like diamonds when hit by light.
