Chinese manufacturer, Oppo is working on its next Reno series smartphone, the Oppo Reno8 series. According to reports so far, this series will be the first to come with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 7 series processor – Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. Furthermore, there are reports that this series will officially arrive in June this year. The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 uses a 4nm manufacturing process. This chip also comes with 4 large Cortex A710 cores and 4 small Cortex A510 cores. The GPU is Adreno 662.
Compared with the Snapdragon 778G on the Oppo Reno7, the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 has been upgraded to a 4nm process (the Snapdragon 778G is TSMC’s 6nm process). The large core has been upgraded to the Cortex A710 and the performance is better as you will expect.
In addition, Oppo Reno8 will also use a 6.55-inch FHD+ full screen which will support a 120Hz high refresh rate. On the rear, it will have a triple rear camera setup. This will include a 50MP wide-angle main camera, 8MP super-wide-angle and 2MP macro camera. On the front, this device will come with a 32MP camera.
It is worth noting that the Oppo Reno8 series fast charging has been upgraded to support 80W wired flash charging. The battery capacity is 4500 mAh, and the ColorOS 12 operating system is pre-installed at the factory. As usual, Oppo will release the Reno8 Pro at the same time as the Reno8.
Oppo Reno8 passes Chinese quality certification
A few days ago, the Oppo Reno8 passed the Chinese quality certification and officially entered the Internet. The model number of this smartphone is PGAM10. The certification reveals that this smartphone will come with a 6.55-inch 120Hz high-brush OLED punch-hole screen. This display will have a resolution of 2400×1080 and of course, it will support the on-screen fingerprint unlocking technology.
The certification also reveals the camera specification of the Reno8. It shows that this smartphone will use a 50-megapixel main camera (IMX766) + 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens + 2-megapixel macro lens. It is believed that the Sony IMX766 main camera will have a good imaging performance under Oppo’s adjustment.
In addition to the 4500 mAh battery, there were expectations that this device will use a 150W ultra-fast charging. However, this is not the case as it will have to make do with 80W as noted earlier. In terms of release date, an earlier report says May 2022, but recent reports say June 2022. We will have to wait a few more weeks to get more details about this device.
