OPPO just released their latest smartphone series Reno, the Reno standard edition and the high-end Reno 10x Hybrid Zoom. The new devices compete on the front line of the smartphone market with their advanced specs, powerful cameras and competitive pricing.
The new Oppo phones sport a panoramic AMOLED FHD+ display along with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The phones are notchless and feature a peculiar wedge-shaped module that is touted to spin out in just 0.8 seconds. The slider houses not only the camera but also the earpiece, front soft light and the rear LED flash. There is no room for face unlocking. Instead, Reno has an in-display fingerprint sensor for unlocking the phone.
This motorized module is said to last for over five years, assuming users will trigger it 100 times per day. To protect the wedge, the Reno can also sense if it’s falling causing the camera to close automatically.
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Edition
The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition sports a triple rear camera setup that has a periscope telephoto lens to enable 10x zoom. Like most current flagships, it is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset and supports 4K 60fps video recording with hybrid stabilization, as well as 3D audio capture and audio zoom.
It has a 6.6-inch display, with an impressive 93.1 percent screen-to-body ratio. The device houses a generous 4,065mAh battery, supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging that is supposed to charge 24 percent faster than before.
3,999 yuan (~$600) for 6GB/128GB
4,499 yuan (~$670) for 6GB/256GB
4,799 yuan (~$710) for 8GB/256GB
OPPO Reno Standard Edition
The Oppo Reno Standard Edition has a 6.4-inch display, a Snapdragon 710 processor, and a secondary ultra-wide camera lens. It has a 3,765mAh battery and no microSD slot.
The standard edition comes with two extra color options, pink and gradient purple in addition to the black and blue. Thanks to the lower-end specs the standard is also slightly lighter and thinner.
2,999 yuan (~$450) for 6GB/128GB
3,299 yuan (~$490) for 6GB/256GB
3,599 yuan (~$540) for 8GB/256GB.
Reno 5G Edition
Lastly, OPPO also announced that Reno also comes in a 5G configuration and it will make an appearance in Zürich, Switzerland. The Reno 5G will probably be similar to the Reno 10x Zoom Edition, but obviously needs an upgraded chipset that supports 5G connectivity.
The European launch event will be held in Zürich on Apr. 24 where the international pricing of the Reno series will be announced.
