Oppo announces Reno flagship phone with 10x zoom lens and weird pop-up camera

Oppo has announced its latest flagship phone, the Reno. It is the company's first device with truly high-end specifications from last year's Find X: the line includes options for a Snapdragon 855 processor, a 48-megapixel camera and a 10x optical zoom lens. And, of course, there is no notch.

As previously leaked, the Reno has an unusual selfie camera design to allow a screen without notches. While Find X lifted the entire top panel of the phone when you needed to unlock it or take a selfie, the Reno has a wedge-shaped part that houses the front camera and the flash that accompanies it. However, there is no room for unlocking the 3D face ID style; instead, the Reno has a fingerprint scanner on the screen.

There are four colors available:


The Reno comes in two versions: the Reno and the Reno 10x Zoom Edition. The first has a 6.4-inch OLED screen, a Snapdragon 710 processor and a secondary secondary camera, while the latter has a 6.6-inch screen, a Snapdragon 855, as well as the third 10x zoom camera that Oppo has been promoting. A while. Both phones include fast charge NFC and VOOC 3.0.

The Reno standard costs 2,999 yuan (~ $ 450) for a 6GB of RAM / 128GB of storage model, 3,299 yuan (~ $ 490) for 6GB / 256GB and 3,599 yuan (~ $ 540) for 8GB / 256GB. Meanwhile, the 10x Zoom Edition has a higher price across the board: 3,999 yuan (~ $ 600) for 6GB / 128GB, 4,499 yuan (~ $ 670) for 6GB / 256GB, and 4,799 yuan (~ $ 710) by 8GB / 256GB.
