Oppo will launch its much-leaked Reno phone in China on April 10 – it will launch the same phone (and hopefully its multiple variants) for the global markets on April 24. Oppo is now sending media invites for a launch event scheduled for April 24 in Zurich where it will launch the Reno for international markets. It is yet to be seen if Oppo is looking to launch the vanilla Reno or the Reno 10X Zoom camera phone on April 24.
The Reno is supposed to be Oppo’s first high-end flagship phone to pack its 10x lossless zoom camera tech – the phone in question is said to be called the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom.
The Reno 10X Zoom phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. It will reportedly come with an OLED display and screen-to-body ratio of 93.1 per cent. The phone will reportedly weight 215g and run Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6.
Camera specs haven’t been specified – but we know that Oppo’s 10x lossless zoom camera tech requires three cameras - a 48MP high-resolution main camera, a 120-degree ultra-wide camera and a periscopic telephoto camera.
The Reno phone will reportedly come with a motorized pop-up selfie camera, but it will have a unique design. Case renders and a hands-on video of the alleged Oppo Reno doing the rounds of the internet recently showed off a unique pop-up front camera.
The Reno was also recently spotted listed on JD.com with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a dual camera system on the rear. The listing also confirmed that the Reno will have a 48MP primary rear camera – there's also NFC and VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
The Reno will have multiple versions (with different processors) with the top-end model powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset (and 10x lossless zoom). The Reno will reportedly have a 5G variant, a Lamborghini Edition with 12 GB RAM, and a low-end model with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710.
