Oppo’s new Reno series offers 10X zoom and it has a weird pop-up selfie camera

The Oppo Reno is finally revealed and it features its new periscope zoom camera module that offers 10X lossless zoom. On top of that, the new flagship device also comes with a weird pop-up module which is used to conceal its selfie camera.

There are two Reno models – The standard Reno and the Reno 10X Zoom edition. The normal Reno has a 6.4″ Full HD+ AMOLED display while the Reno 10X zoom gets a larger 6.6″ screen that also pushes Full HD+ resolution on an AMOLED panel. Both also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Under the hood, the dual-camera Reno is powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor while the Reno 10X zoom gets a flagship Snapdragon 855 processor. Both models can be configured with up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage.

Similar to the Oppo Find X, the device features an edge-to-edge full-screen display that has no notches or punch-holes. Instead of a slider or a normal selfie pop-up, the Reno uses a slanting “wedge” camera pop-up that which houses a 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera. According to Oppo, the Reno has a screen to body ratio of 93.1%.

Over at the back, the Reno 10X edition gets a triple-camera setup. It has a 48MP f/1.7 main camera using a 1/2.0″ sensor with OIS, a 13MP f/3.0 periscope telephoto camera with OIS and an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle shooter. Using both the main and telephoto shooter, the device is able to achieve 10X hybrid zoom in lossless quality.

On the standard Reno, it retains the same 48MP f/1.7 main shooter. However, the secondary shooter is a 5MP f/2.4 depth camera that’s used for bokeh effects. Unlike the 10X variant, there’s no OIS.
