Watch: Oppo 10x lossless zoom first look
The unnamed device of the new Reno series is rumoured to feature the 10x lossless zoom capability showcased by Oppo at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2019 in February. Earlier, it was reported that the phone would be launched on April 10 but looks like the official launch date would be April 24.
The smartphone is expected to feature a 16MP pop-up front-facing camera along with a 48MP primary camera at the back together with the square-shaped module for 10x lossless zoom.
Reports claimed that Oppo Reno will be powered by Snapdragon 855 processor which will be paired with up to 8GB RAM, and there might be a trimmed down version of the device (Reno Lite) which would feature the Snapdragon 710 processor.
The upcoming Reno device is expected to be a 5G phone backed by a 4,000 mAh battery with 50W fast charging support.
When Oppo shared the colourful logo of Reno on Twitter, many thought Reno would be Oppo’s second sub-brand after Realme. However, Oppo’s VP Brain Shen confirmed that Reno is a new smartphone series and not a sub-brand.
