We had rumors and leaks about the Oppo Reno for quite a while and today came the day when the company finally revealed the smartphone. Actually, the “smartphones” since we have not one, but two models, each having three variants that differ on RAM and internal storage. Both of them have a modern design with no notch, good price-to-performance ratio and a unique design for the front-facing camera.
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom
The high-end model is the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom. It has the latest Snapdragon 855 CPU and up to 8GB of RAM. The 6.65″ FullHD+ screen is bigger than most smartphones, but thanks to the bezel-less design, the actual device is not that big. The screen is AMOLED and this means that OPPO could include an in-display fingerprint reader, which they did. Furthermore, the screen has HDR10+ certification and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
Camera wise, OPPO Reno 10x Zoom seems to be very attractive. On the back, there is a triple camera setup. The main camera has a 48MP sensor and OIS. There is a secondary camera with f/2.2 aperture that has an 8MP sensor and, as the name suggests, a telescopic camera with a 13MP sensor that is capable of 10x Zoom, similar to the Huawei P30 Pro. On the front, the selfie camera has 16MP sensor and is hidden in a “shark-fin” pop-up enclosure that only opens when you actually need it.
The smaller brother does not sacrifice too much. You get a 6.4″ AMOLED Screen that still has FullHD+ resolution and in-display fingerprint reader. You still get up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, but this time the CPU is downgraded to the Snapdragon 710. The cameras were downgraded a bit as well. You still get the 48MP sensor with OIS, but the other two were changed with 5MP variants and no optical zoom. This smartphone also has the “shark-fin” pop-up selfie camera and a bezel-less design.
