OPPO had announced that its Reno flagship will be announced in China on April 10 recently, and now the company has confirmed that the phone’s international launch will occur on April 24 in Zurich, Switzerland.
According to the source, the company has sent out invites with a tagline “Beyond The Obvious”, as you can see down below. The “I’m Reno” writing confirms that we’re looking at the OPPO Reno, and it seems like the event will start at 2PM CEST on April 24.
OPPO is actually expected to announce at least two OPPO Reno variants in China on April 10, the OPPO Reno Pro flagship, and the OPPO Reno mid-ranger. We are still not sure whether there will be more phones announced, nor do we know whether OPPO is planning to launch all the variants announced in China on a global scale as well, though the company’s flagship will almost certainly make an appearance on April 24.
The OPPO Reno Pro will be the alleged name of the company’s flagship, and that variant will sport more powerful specs than the mid-range phone, not to mention that it will ship with a 10x periscope camera on the back, the same tech OPPO had demoed at MWC 2019. The mid-range model will include two cameras on the back, though the third one, the periscope one will not be included, unlike on the flagship model.
The OPPO Reno Pro will be made out of metal and glass, and it will have extremely thin bezels. The phone’s chin will be a hair thicker than the rest of its bezels, and the phone will include a 93.1-percent display aspect ratio.
The device will not sport a display notch or a display camera hole, instead, OPPO has included a pop-up camera system which looks different to any other pop-up camera system we’ve seen so far. The device will include a triangle-shaped pop-up camera, as we’ve seen in a number of leaks thus far.
The OPPO Reno Pro will be fueled by the Snapdragon 855 64-bit octa-core processor by Qualcomm, while it is expected to sport a rather large display, a 6.6-inch fullHD+ panel, allegedly. An OLED display is touted to be included on the phone, while the device will include 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It is possible OPPO will release more than one variant of the device, though.
Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on the OPPO Reno series, while OPPO’s ColorOS 6.0 will come pre-installed on Google’s operating system. The phone will measure 162 x 77.2 x 9.3mm, while it will weigh 215 grams. The device is also said to include a large battery (probably a 4,000mAh unit) on the inside, along with OPPO’s VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology.
It is quite possible that the OPPO Reno Pro’s main camera on the back will be a 48-megapixel sensor, as the mid-range model is also said to include that unit. We’re not sure about the secondary unit, but the third one will be the periscope-style camera we’ve mentioned earlier. The OPPO Reno Pro will probably make its way to Europe after the Zurich launch, but it remains to be seen where exactly will it be available. It is also worth noting that one of the OPPO Reno variants is rumored to include 5G support, though it remains to be seen if that info is accurate or not.
