Details about the Oppo Reno 9 series’ chipset have surfaced online before the official launch, courtesy of a reliable tipster. Oppo brought its Reno 8 series smartphones into the Indian market not long ago. The Reno 8 went on its first sale in the country back in July. Now, the company is on the verge of unveiling the Reno 9 series.
To recap, tipster Digital Chat Station revealed the battery and fast charging specifications of the Reno 9 series last month. Now, the noted leakster has divulged details about the Oppo Reno 9 series’ chipset (via IT Home). The Reno 9 will pack a Snapdragon 778G under the hood.
Notably, the SD 778G is an older processor as compared to the MediaTek Dimensity 800 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 series. Moreover, the Reno 9 series could use a 4,500mAh battery to draw its juices. This cell will probably support UFCS. So, Oppo will be one of the first smartphone brands to support the new UFCS.
Reno 9 Series Chipset & Other Details
On the downside, the 40W charging speed is considerably lower than the 80W charging support the Reno 8 series offers. Only the Chinese Reno 8 Pro variant and the Xiaomi Civi 2 currently feature the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC. So, using an older Snapdragon 778G is a major downgrade in the processor department for the Reno 9 series.
