OPPO has just recently launched the new Reno series of smartphones in China. The OPPO Reno, unlike the Realme brand, will be offering flagship grade devices at affordable price points. Yesterday, the company’s VP Brian Shen released several photo samples that were taken with the OPPO Reno cameras. The company’s main interest in sharing these samples was to show the power of its 48MP camera and its 10x zoom ability that will one of the highlights of this flagship.
Today a couple more samples surfaced online, this time the focus in on architecture. The good news about these new samples is that these shots show the full photo from the zoom camera, rather than just a cutout like
yesterday’s samples. Unfortunately, the pictures have been scaled down to 1080p, resolution that doesn’t represent the actual quality of these 48MP samples.
Another interesting information about Oppo’s Reno is in the fact that it will have an x-axis motor rather than z-axis, which will make the vibration feel more like a physical button. The handset should be equipped with a 1080p+ Dynamic AMOLED with HDR10+ support and there’s going to be in-display fingerprint scanner in the package as well. The complete set of specifications make this a smartphone that is very interesting, yet it tends to be very pricey.
The expected price for the Oppo Reno 8GB/256GB should be $745, while the 10GB/256GB should cost $820, and the 12GB/256GB will cost $1,040. The Oppo Reno Lamborghini with 12GB/512GB will cost $1,500. Last on the list we have the Oppo Reno Light Deluxe that should arrive in two variants with 8GB/128GB and another with 8GB/256GB, the price for these two models will be $550 and $660, respectively.
Last, but not least, there’s a video teasing Oppo’s brand new Breeno, a virtual AI digital assistant that will debut with Oppo Reno. The new assistant will feature both voice and image recognition and can be the brain of your smart home. However, we need to see it in action to see if we really need another voice assistant.
The Oppo Reno will be revealed on April 10, so don’t forget to mark this date in your schedule.
