The Oppo Reno series is arriving in Malaysia next week. This is their latest flagship offering that comes with a unique pop-up camera design and a sophisticated zoom system that offers 10X hybrid zoom. The Chinese smartphone maker has confirmed that a local launch event will be taking place on the 16th May 2019.
To recap, the Reno series is the successor of Oppo’s R-series. The Reno will come in two variants, a standard model and a 10X Edition that comes with a periscope camera system.
For the top of the line Reno 10X Edition, it gets a large 6.6″ Full HD+ AMOLED display that has no notches or punch-holes. It is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor that can be configured with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.
For imaging, it gets a 48MP f/1.7 main camera, a 13MP f/3.0 telephoto camera and an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle shooter. As shared by Oppo’s VP for Chinese domestic market, the device is capable of pushing up to 60X digital zoom. Meanwhile, the selfie camera uses a wedged-shaped pop-up mechanism that houses a 16MP f/2.0 shooter.
Powering the Reno 10X zoom edition is a 4,065mAh battery that supports Oppo’s VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 charging via USB-C. You can learn more about the devices in our announcement post.
