The Oppo Reno Ace is official and it’s every bit as high-tech as the company’s many teaser reveals as well as all the rumour mills that we’ve come to see ahead of launch. The Oppo Reno Ace is a flagship through and through and even though it misses out on the crazy periscope optics of the Reno 10x Zoom, there’s a lot to like here – and to get excited about.
This starts with the screen. The Reno Ace has a 6.5-inch 1080p+ AMOLED display that boasts of a 90Hz refresh rate – like the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro. There’s a waterdrop-style notch upfront and an in-display fingerprint scanner to complete the package. The other key highlight of the Reno Ace is that it supports whopping 65W fast charging – that's the fastest for any smartphone to date. Not even the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro have it. Oppo claims that you can top the Reno Ace’s sizeable 4,000mAh battery in just 30 minutes using the proprietary charging brick and cable that is.
The Oppo Reno Ace doesn’t stop at that. It has Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 855+ processor paired with up to 12GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. The phone runs Android 10-based ColorOS 6.1 and packs dual stearo speakers for immersive audio.
On to the cameras, the Oppo Reno Ace comes with a triple camera setup on the rear consisting of a main 48MP camera with Sony’s IMX586 sensor and OIS, a 13MP telephoto camera for up to 5x hybrid zoom, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP monochrome sensor. On the front, the Reno Ace has a 16MP camera.
Oppo has launched the Reno Ace in China at a starting price of CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs 30,000) for the base variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage going all the way to CNY 3,799 (roughly Rs 38,000) for the top-end variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. The phone will be available in Psychedelic Purple and Starry Blue colours. There will also be a Gundam Edition Reno Ace with a tweaked design and cutom accessories but Oppo is yet to announce price for that.
