Last month, Oppo launched Reno 2 -- the successor to its Reno smartphone. The phone is now available for pre-order and those who wish to purchase the phone can now click here to book a device in advance. The USP of the phone is its quad-camera setup on the back and the shark fin-type pop-up module that houses the front snapper. To own an Oppo Reno 2 device, users have to shell out Rs 36,990, and they will get 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The phone will be available in two colours: ocean blue and luminous black colours.
Oppo Reno 2 features a 6.55-inch dynamic AMOLED display that offers a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, and a screen-to-body ratio of 93.1 per cent. The notchless display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. Under the hood, the Oppo Reno 2 houses an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. It features Touch Boost 2.0, Frame Boost 2.0 and Game Space which are claimed to enhance the user experience. A 4,000mAh battery keeps the lights on and it supports VOOC 3.0 flash charge. The technology uses VFC algorithm that is claimed to shorten the time taken to charge the final 10 percent battery. The Reno 2 runs ColorOS 6.1 based on Android Pie 9.0.
When it comes to camera, the phone consists of four cameras on the back. The 1/2-inch 48MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor is coupled with a f/1.7 aperture lens with optical image stabilisation. There is a 13MP telephoto lens with an aperture of f/2.4 and 16-83mm equivalent focal length, which offers 20x digital zoom and 5x hybrid zoom. The third is an 8MP wide-angle lens with 116 degree field-of-view. The fourth 2MP mono lens for portraits. The back camera supports an ultra-dark mode capturing images in low-light conditions and ‘ultra-steady video’ mode for recording stable videos. On the front is a 16MP sensor housed in the shark fin-type pop-up mechanism.
