Oppo is well known for launching multiple versions of its smartphones. The company tends to launch special editions, limited colorways and etc. Now, it’s adding the recently released Oppo Reno 7 to its usual tradition. The company is introducing a new Oppo Reno7 New Year Edition. The new colorways come in a Red Velvet colorway and have a Tiger logo on the back next to the Oppo moniker since 2022 is the year of Tiger in the Chinese zodiac.
The Oppo Reno7 was unveiled by Oppo in November in China. The device is yet to reach global markets, but as far as the Chinese market is concerned, it’s getting a new version. The Oppo Reno 7 New Year Edition basically gets a new coat of red paint job. It also has a special Tiger logo on the back. Apart from these two differences, it’s basically the same device with the same set of internals.

That said, the Oppo Reno 7 brings a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778 SoC paired with up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of Internal Storage. The device flaunts a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. The display also works with a 90 Hz refresh rate. In terms of software, the Oppo Reno 7 runs Android 11-based Color OS 12. However, it’s a matter of time until it receives Android 12.
In terms of photography, the Oppo Reno 7 has a Quad-Camera setup. There is a 64 MP primary snapper, an 8 MP ultrawide camera, and 2 MP macro units. The Oppo Reno 7 New Year Edition draws powers from a 4,500 mAh battery with 60 W fast-chargin support and an in-display fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication.
The Oppo Reno7 New Year Edition is also the same as the regular model’s. There is no premium price for getting this special variant. The base model comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage. It costs CNY 2,699 ($425 / €375). There are also variants with 8 GB / 256 GB and 12 GB / 256 GB.
The Oppo Reno7 New Year aka Red Velvet color will be up for pre-order on December 27. We don’t think that this variant will reach international markets. But still, we may see Oppo bringing the Red Velvet idea to international markets. The company can remove the Tiger logo and make it a common variant with just the red colorway.
