More than a month after its international debut, OPPO Reno series has finally made its way into the Pakistani market. The Chinese smartphone giant has been hyping the much-awaited launch of OPPO Reno and OPPO Reno 10x Zoom smartphones on social media since the end of last month and now they are a reality.
This year, OPPO introduced its new Reno series which will be focusing on providing premium features to users which will help them to break out of the mid-range market which they have captured through their much-acclaimed F series and enter into the big league of flagship phones.
Keep in mind, OPPO also has a running Find series which also offers flagship products but most often with a unique twist like last year’s Find X.
The new Reno series has been unveiled in an exclusive event held in Bhurban where the tech journalists were given a chance to get their hands on the phone and test it out themselves.
Like always, Marketing Director OPPO Pakistan, Ali Kakvi gave us an overview of OPPO as a smartphone company, its achievements, and future prospects.
Awais Khan, Product Manager of OPPO Pakistan later briefed us about the features of new Reno smartphones and what makes them unique from countless other devices in the market.
Finally, Jadon Niu, Sales Director OPPO Pakistan unveiled the new Reno smartphones for the audience.
The smartphone features 6.4 inches of AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 screen resolution. It is powered by Snapdragon 710 chipset accompanied by 8GB of RAM.
Being part of the new Reno series, the device comes with a 16MP pop-up shark fin camera for selfies and has a dual camera setup at the back which includes a 48MP main lens and a 5MP depth sensor.
It also packs a 3765mAh battery sporting company’s famous VOOC fast charging capabilities. For added security, it also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor for the users.
While we were highly impressed with the design of OPPO F11 Pro (Review) when it was first launched in Pakistan but the new Reno smartphone has managed to outdo itself with its unique style granted by a new way of camera placement and smartphone branding.
The 8GB + 128GB smartphone will be available from the 22nd of June in Pakistan with the price tag of Rs. 69,999.
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom offers 6.6 inches of AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 resolution. Under the hood, we get a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
For selfies, the 10x Zoom variant has the same 16MP pop-up shark fin camera as the standard OPPO Reno smartphone but at the back, it boasts a triple camera setup featuring 48MP Sony IMX586 primary camera, 13MP zoom setup, and an 8MP ultra-wide sensor.
The smartphone draws power from a massive 4065mAh battery which comes with VOOC charge 3.0 fast charging support for users. Just like the standard variant, Reno 10x Zoom also has an in-display fingerprint sensor for added security. It will be available from the 22nd of June for Rs. 109,999.
