Yes, you read that right. Oppo Reno 2 with 20X zoom and quad-camera setup located on the rear is slated to launch in India first. The launch date has been set as August 28 and consumers in India will be the first one to get a glimpse of the new smartphone. From the graphic that came with the save the date details, the Oppo Reno 2 seems to be sporting the same shark fin type pop-up selfie camera. This was previously seen on Oppo Reno first edition.
The teaser graphic does say that this smartphone is touted to support up to 20X zoom, which seems to be hybrid zoom since the word optical is not mentioned anywhere. When compared to Oppo Reno first edition, it had only 10X zoom capability while the new one will get 20X. Not much has been said about the phone except a few rumoured reports came out some time ago. At the moment a vertically placed quad cameras setup at the back of the Oppo Reno 2 with extreme zoom and shark fin type selfie camera module are confirmed. Also, since one can see the night sky, the emphasis should be on night photography with the Oppo Reno 2.
If we go by rumours, then the technical specifications of Oppo Reno 2 will include a minimum of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 CPU with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. Battery should be over 4,100 mAh and the smartphone will be available in at least 2 colour options to begin with. A third colour option might be added at a later stage. The rumoured price of the smartphone is being touted as Rs 42,999. Looking at the current generation of Oppo Reno, which retails for 39,999, a price of almost Rs 43,000 does not seem to be a bad one for a phone with 20X zoom support.
Also, a full edge to edge touchscreen measuring 6.5-inches or higher (diagonally) is what the Oppo Reno 2 might fetch. The operating system on this mobile is also going to be Android 9 Pie out of the box with Oppo’s own OS skin on top of it. The smartphone is first going to launch in India, as said. The dedication towards the country shows how important the Indian market is for the Chinese company. More details about the camera sensors should also come to light in the coming few days.
