Oppo has released Reno 8Z 5G as the fifth member of the Reno 8 series. The phone is official in Thailand and joins the existing Reno 8, Reno 8 Pro, Reno 8 Pro+, and Reno 8 Lite 5G models. The specifications suggest that it is nothing but a rebranded Reno 8 Lite that went official about a couple of months ago.
The Oppo Reno 8Z 5G sports a 6.43-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) display with a punch-hole. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor with Adreno 619 GPU. There is a single 8GB RAM variant but it supports virtual RAM expansion where can get a total of up to13GB of RAM. It has 128GB of onboard storage with support for microSD cards.
There is a triple-camera module featuring a 64-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. The front camera on the phone is a 16-megapixel sensor housed inside the punch-hole. The whole package is powered by a 4,500mAh battery that should last at least a day with ease. It is supported by 33W fast charging to help you get a quick refill.
It will run ColorOS 12.1 based on Android 11 out of the box. Other noteworthy features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, Bluetooth v5, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The Oppo Reno 8Z 5G is priced at THB 12,990 for the sole 8GB/128GB model. The color options include Dawnlight Gold and Starlight Black.
