The OPPO Reno will be officially announced on the 10th of April. The device features an impressive 10x periscope and made its first appearance at MWC 2019. The device has been leaked online, revealing an all screen design and a thin bottom bezel. Rumour has it that the device will also be available in a 5G variant. The company has released a teaser video of how the smartphone has been made, giving is audience a better and truer picture.
While the official teaser is just a 30-second-long video clip, it highlights some of the main selling point of the smartphone including its huge zoom, impressive display with vibrant colours and of course, a Snapdragon chipset. Rumour has it that the device will launch in three versions. One is a 5G variant, the other with the top of the line Snapdragon 855 SoC and a third with a more reasonably priced and budget end chipset, the Snapdragon 710 SoC. The VP of OPPO claims that the device has no holes on the front of its display. This could mean one of two things. The device is either using a pop-up selfie camera like that on the Find X or a periscope selfie shooter which has been implemented on the F11 Pro.
Unfortunately, much of its specifications surfacing online are based on rumours. The OPPO Reno is rumoured to feature a 48 MP main camera with 8 or 10GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. According to popular belief, the 5G variant of the smartphone will have 12GB of RAM and a 5,000mAh battery.
