Oppo will launch the Reno and Reno 10x Zoom Edition phones in India on May 28, according to a new report. The report, that cites a teaser poster from a retail chain source, suggests Oppo may be looking to target the upper mid-range segment with its upcoming Reno series. Because nothing of this is official for now, we suggest you take this piece of information with a pinch of salt though.
The Reno and Reno 10x Zoom Edition are unique smartphones – while the former is a mid-tier phone, the latter is a full-fledged flagship. That said, both the phones have many things in common, including the same design. Both the phones have a glass back and there’s Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on the front paired with an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner and a pop-up selfie camera - the pop-up mechanism which looks a lot like a shark fin houses a 16MP camera.
Speaking of specs, the Reno 10x Zoom comes with a 6.6-inch AMOLED display with a 1080p+ resolution, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor paired with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. There’s a 4,065mAh battery and VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
The real star of the show here is Oppo’s 10x lossless zoom camera tech – that Oppo first announced at MWC 2019. The Reno 10x Zoom has a 48MP main camera (with Sony IMX586 sensor), an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 13MP telephoto camera. Both the main camera and the telephoto camera are optically stabilized.
Coming to the vanilla Reno, it comes with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 1080p+ resolution, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor paired with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. There’s a 3,765mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 tech. On to the optics, the Reno has a dual rear camera system consisting of one 48MP sensor (Sony IMX586) and another 5MP sensor for depth sensing aka portrait photography.
