For selfies, it gets a 32MP front camera that’s housed in a tiny punch-hole in the top left corner.
The Oppo Reno 4 Pro gets a 4,000mAh battery which is slightly smaller than the non-Pro version, but it supports a higher 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging technology. According to Oppo, a quick 5-minute charge is enough to provide 4 hours of video playback and a full charge takes just 36 minutes. And yes, it still comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Take note that the Reno 4 series for the Malaysia market is different from the version that was announced in China. The Chinese version runs on a Snapdragon 765G processor and it supports 5G.
