Oppo announced the launch of a new smartphone a few weeks ago under its new sub-brand RENO. A few days after the company made the RENO announcement, the company shared a teaser video which gave us the idea that Oppo Reno will be focused on the photography segment while offering respectable specs.
Oppo Reno will be made official on April 10 and is expected to ship starting June. Rumors have suggested the device will feature Qualcomm’s latest Chip, Snapdragon 855 with up to 12GB of RAM.
While manufacturers are in a quest to hide the selfie camera with the aim of rendering a full-view bezel-less screen, we’ve seen a motorized pop-up camera, mechanical sliders, and even dual screen smartphones. But the upcoming Oppo Reno smartphones leak images display an unusual pop-up camera (one-sided slide diagonally).
The Oppo Reno pop-up camera looks pretty much like a “shark fin” as displayed in the above image. The “shark fin” pop-up, however, holds a single selfie cam with LED flash along with the front speaker.
The device is expected to come in two variant, one with the Snapdragon 855 coupled which supports 10X Lossless Zoom technology and the other a Snapdragon 710 which will also come with a great camera but not with a 10X lossless Zoom technology.
There is no sign of a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device, this means Reno will incorporate the in-display fingerprint scanner. Reno will boot Android Pie out-of-the-box, it’ll have a 3,680 mAh battery under the hood with 50W fast charging technology for the Snapdragon 855 variant.
Rumors also suggest the device will feature a liquid cooling system, including a 5G variant and a Lamborghini Edition that is expected to bag a whopping 12GB RAM, 512GB UFS 3.0 storage with 5,000 mAh of battery.
Note: Take this information with a pinch of salt until the official launch of the device.
