Oppo's Reno lineup of smartphones has become popular among buyers, especially in China, since its inception. It is known for offering phones across different price segments with relevant features. We saw the launch of premium models under the Oppo Reno 6 series last month. There are three phones in the market but a fourth one is now expected to join soon.
The alleged phone is called Oppo Reno6 Z which will presumably replace the Reno5 Z unveiled barely a couple of months ago. This is undoubtedly a short span of time for launching a successor model but that seems to be how it is. The leak claims that Reno6 Z will have a 6.43-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and the standard 60Hz refresh rate.
The choice of processor is expected to be the MediaTek Dimensity 800U. The leak mentions 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage as the hardware configuration but there could also be more options. The camera module will have triple rear cameras: 64-megapixel, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and 2-megapixel macro. The selfie camera will be a 32-megapixel sensor.
The battery capacity is reported to be 4,310mAh along with 30W VOOC 4.0 fast charging. It is expected to run ColorOS 11.1 based on Android 11 out of the box. Oppo is said to debut the Reno6 Z in two color variants but these are unknown yet. This is pretty much what is known about the phone so far but we will suggest you take these with a pinch of salt.
