We are still three weeks away from the Oppo Reno smartphone launch but the rumor mill is already full of information about the device. And now, Oppo itself has started to tease highlighting features of the device ahead of the launch. Oppo VP Shen Yiren Brian has posted on Weibo to claim an impressive 93.1% screen-to-body ratio for Reno.
It means we are in for another smartphone with bare minimum bezels and full display on all four sides. Interestingly, Brian further mentioned that the Oppo Reno will not have any holes on either of the front and back panels. He did not specify further which makes it harder to guess what exactly he meant by that.
Since none of the previous leaks have shown the phone from the front, it is another reason which makes it difficult to know what the display might look like. The mention about no holes could mean that there will be no punch-hole selfie camera but if that happens, then there will surely be a notch.
As per recent reports, the Oppo Reno will be made official in multiple variants including Lamborghini and 5G editions. The first one is likely to be an offering similar to the Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition. As for the second, it will offer 5G connectivity support which means it will be likely be released in limited quantities. The official launch for the phone is set for April 10th and we should be getting more details in the meantime.
