Oppo Reno specifications: What we know so far
While the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition has been confirmed to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor by the company VP, the Standard Edition of the device is expected to run on the Snapdragon 710 processor. Some earlier reports have suggested that Snapdragon 710 powered Reno device will be called Reno Lite.
Oppo’s website has revealed that the phone will be available in four colour options– Extreme Night Black, Fog Sea Green, Mist Powder, and Nebula Purple.
Oppo Reno is expected to sport a 16MP pop-up front-facing camera and a 48MP primary camera at the back clubbed with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor and a 13MP telephoto lens. The company has shared 10x Zoom camera samples on Weibo. Since the leaked render images do not show a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, the phone might have an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The Oppo Reno is also expected to be a 5G phone backed by a 4,000 mAh battery with support for 50W fast charging (VOOC 3.0). The phone is expected to come in 6GB/128GB, 6GB/256GB, and 8GB/256GB storage models. Oppo has recently shared an image on Weibo, showcasing Reno’s glass back with dual texture finish.
