Oppo has launched the Oppo Reno and Reno 10x Zoom Edition smartphones in India, after much speculations and leaks across the internet. The two smartphones have introduced a new portfolio of devices under Oppo's umbrella in India, and will cater to the premium and flagship segments of the market, along with strategic pricing. At their present prices, the Reno and Reno 10x Zoom Edition smartphones will directly rival the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, which were recently launched in India as well. Interestingly, both Oppo and OnePlus are owned by Chinese technology conglomerate BBK Electronics, and will cater to the same segment of the market in India that has been seeing an increasing amount of traction of late. Here's how the two devices shape up.
Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition
The highlight feature of the Reno flagship is the 10x lossless optical zoom element. The rear camera setup is powered by the 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary image sensor, paired with an f/1.7 lens. This is supplemented by a 13-megapixel secondary sensor behind the periscopic lens that provides optical zoom equivalent of 16-160mm. This is further combined with dual optical stabilisation to minimise vibrations, as well as a three-mic setup to produce stereo audio and audio zoom features in video recording.
Another innovative factor about the smartphone is its oblique pop-out 'Shark Fin' panel that houses the 16-megapixel front-facing selfie camera, while the rear setup also has an 8-megapixel ultra wide angle camera. The smartphone features 4K video recording at 60fps, HDR imaging, noise reduction, and two AI-driven modes -- Ultra Night Mode 2.0 and a standalone Portrait Mode.
