Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition launched; packs Snapdragon 855 SoC and 48 MP triple rear cameras
Today, at a launch event in China, along with the Oppo Reno, the company has also launched its flagship smartphone, dubbed Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition. This is the company’s first truly flagship device after the launch of Oppo Find X last year.
As the name suggests, the smartphone supports 10x Hybrid Optical Zoom, a technology that the Chinese company showcased earlier this year during Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona, Spain in February.
It comes with a triple rear camera setup which consists of a 48 MP primary Sony IMX586 sensor with f/1.7 aperture, 0.8um pixel size, OIS, Laser AF, PDAF, and CAF. It also features a 13 MP periscope telephoto lens with f/3.0 aperture and an 8 MP 120-degree Ultra Wide Lens with f/2.2 aperture.
On the front side, the device features a pop-up lens so that the phone could have a notchless front design. However, unlike the Find X which raised the entire top panel of the phone, the Reno phone comes with a wedge-shaped part. It has a 16 MP front-facing camera with LED flash.
The smartphone boasts a 6.6-inch Full HD+ notchless AMOLED display offering 2340 × 1080 pixels screen resolution and 19:5:9 aspect ratio as well as Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. It packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, along with Adreno 640 GPU.
Just like the Oppo Reno standard edition, this one too comes in two variants — 6 GB RAM and 8 GB RAM. There are two internal storage options to choose from — 128 GB and 256 GB. The phone also comes with an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor.
Connectivity options on the device include Dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac dual-band (2×2 MU-MIMO ), Bluetooth 5, Dual-frequency (L1+L5) GPS/GLONASS/Beidou, NFC, and USB Type-C port. It runs Android Pie with ColorOS 6 and is powered by a 4065 mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition comes in two color options — Green and Black. It is priced at 3,999 yuan (~$595) for the 6 GB + 128GB model and 4,499 yuan (~$669) for the 6 GB + 256 GB model. The top-end variant with 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage costs 4,799 yuan (~$714). The phone will go on sale mid-May and the company will also launch a 5G variant next month.
