Oppo has been gearing up to introduce new smartphones under its newly conceived sub-brand, Reno. While specific details about the phones are yet to be confirmed, we expect to see multiple devices under its brand. Now, a new tip-off has hinted at how the flagship device under Reno might shape up, and by the sound of it, we should expect a full fledged flagship device.
Twitter user Ishan Agarwal has claimed to have received information from an inside source close to the company, that the flagship device may be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Furthermore, the biggest draw of the device will be its rear camera setup, and it will most likely feature the new, 10x lossless zoom technology. As such, the device is also said to be called Oppo Reno 10x Zoom, taking its name from the main feature that it will come with.
This would also make the device marginally thicker than usual phones, and the leak states that the flagship Reno smartphone will measure 9.3mm in thickness. Other features said to be on the phone include 8GB RAM and 256GB native storage. Oppo has so far confirmed that its upcoming smartphone under Reno will come with 93.1 percent screen to body ratio. Now, the latest leak further states that the display will feature an OLED display panel, and given how the device is shaping up, it is likely to come with a pop-up camera mechanism.
According to other reports on the internet, the Reno smartphone may be priced at around Rs 45,000, in which case it will rival devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S10e and the OnePlus 7, when it launches.
