Today marks the date that OPPO Malaysia finally shows us the OPPO Reno series of smartphones. A while back, we have already played with the Reno, though it was concealed. OPPO highlights that the Reno series of smartphones has something called the “10x lossless zoom”.
The OPPO Reno is an entirely new series of smartphones that fit into the family, and the OPPO Reno spans from mid-range to high-end devices. Today, OPPO Malaysia focuses only on the Reno itself. The OPPO Reno is considered the “base model” of the entire series.
As for the specs, here they are:
- 6.4-inch 2340×1080 OLED screen
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset
- 6GB RAM
- 256GB ineternal storage
- Dual rear-facing cameras
- 48MP f/1.7
- 5MP depth sensor
- 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera
- 3,765mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge (20W)
This new OPPO Reno series of smartphones are the first in the world to be using a new design for pop-up selfie camera – a piece that rotates out like a shark fin. OPPO calls it the “pivot rising camera” and yes, the pivot rotation is actually much more robust than a vertical rising camera like what we’ve seen on the OPPO F11 Pro.
To maintain the sleek look on the Reno, it uses an OLED screen and also uses an under-display fingerprint scanner. It seems like a physical fingerprint scanner is getting rarer by the day.
The OPPO Reno also comes in two colors – the Ocean Green and Jet Black. Honestly, I prefer the Ocean Green color. As for the price, OPPO Malaysia has priced the OPPO Reno at RM1,999. Quite hefty.
Pre-orders for the Reno begins 17th May until 27th May 2019 at OPPO’s official online store and also authorized stores and dealers. All pre-orders will come with freebies as well:
- Smart Battery Casing worth RM199
- Extended one year warranty worth RM119
- Screen protection warranty worth RM119
We thought that the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom edition will be launching as well – but unfortunately, it won’t be here today. Also, the core specs of the OPPO Reno itself is actually very similar to the higher-tiered Realme 3 Pro (review) that was released not too long ago, and priced at RM1,099 only. That makes the Reno very niche, and we wonder what’s the price of the 10x Zoom Edition going to be when it arrives to Malaysia.
