Chinese smartphone maker OPPO is apparently gearing up to announce a new phone in their new Reno series. There have been several attempts to eliminate the display notch and the front camera for a full-blown all screen phone, but Oppo’s latest attempt as portrayed in a recently leaked video showcasing the Reno is such that has never been seen before. While we are only a few days away from its official launch, a new OPPO phone supposedly the OPPO Reno has cleared TENAA, the certification agency behind Chinese telecommunications authority.
Although the agency has updated its listing with images of the device, so we sure can not bet on the real design, but there are a lot of technical details listed on the agency’s site. Bearing the model number PCAT00 / PCAM00, the listing reveals the OPPO Reno will feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that supports full HD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, housed in a body that measures and weigh 156.6 × 74.3 × 9mm and 185 grams respectively.
Based on the listing, the OPPO Reno will feature a 2.2 GHz octa-core processor believed to be the SD 710 and is expected to come in two variants – one with 6GB RAM +128GB storage and another with 8GB RAM+256GB, with no room for expansion. Although TENAA hasn’t updated the listing with full images, the listing suggests it could come with a dual cam setup – a 48-megapixel + 5-megapixel while the unusually shaped triangle pop-up camera module will house a 16MP along with LED flash. It will boot Android 9 Pie OS with the ColorOS 6.0 out of the box, while it will be lighted by a 3,680mAh battery with support for VOOC 3.0 rapid charging.
The Chinese has slated a launch event for April where it will unveil the OPPO Reno series, availability, and pricing, though we expect the SD 855 powered Reno to get through the pace of TENAA in the coming days.
