Oppo Reno, Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition Launched

The Reno OPPO series has finally become official. During an event in China the manufacturer announced the Reno 10x Zoom , packed with cutting-edge specifications as a triple 48-megapixel camera with 10x hybrid zoom support. It also announced a “standard” version of the same device, an intermediate smartphone based on the Snapdragon 710 processor.

After some leaks, Oppo has finally announced the Reno, its newest smartphone that arrives to be the flagship device of the Chinese brand. This is the company’s first device with truly premium specifications since the Find X , launched last year. It comes equipped with Snapdragon 855 chipset, a 48 megapixel camera and a 10x optical zoom lens. And, of course, without notch.

Its main highlights are the retractable camera in the form of a slice of pizza or a shark’s fin and with 10-times optical zoom, which was exhibited at the Mobile World Congress.

To make this design possible, Oppo had to install a somewhat different pop-up style selfie camera. While in Find X it was necessary to lift the entire top panel of the phone whenever you needed to unlock it or take a selfie, on the Reno there is a ramp-shaped part that houses the front camera and the flash. This design option prevented the company from adopting a biometric security system such as FaceID, so instead the Reno has a fingerprint scanner under the display.

The body of the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is made with a 7000 series aluminum alloy frame. It masures at 16.2 x 7.72 cm, 9.3 mm thick and weighs 210 grams. The 6.65-inch AMOLED screen has FHD + resolution (2340×1080 pixels) and does not have any kind of notch or holes, which results in a 91% aspect ratio between the front of the device and the screen.

The screen is also HDR10 + certified and incorporates a sixth generation fingerprint reader. All of this is protected by a Gorilla Glass 6 panel. Under the hood of the Reno 10X Zoom, you can find a Snapdragon 855 with 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal memory, expandable through microSD cards.
