At the MWC 2019 trade show, Oppo unveiled 10X lossless zoom camera technology and now, the new Reno-series is the first one to come with the new tech. There are two variants of the smartphone, one powered by the flagship Snapdragon 855 SoC and the other powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 710 SoC. Unlike other smartphone makers where the cameras have a bump, Oppo has managed to avoid those protruding cameras. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Oppo Reno.
As seen in the previous leaks, the Reno comes with an unusual pop-up selfie snapper, meaning you now get a notchless screen. While the Find X featured an elevating top panel, the Reno has a wedge-shaped part that houses the selfie snapper and flash module. Sadly, there is no word on the resolution. There is no 3D face unlock, but the company has added an in-display fingerprint scanner.
