Oppo, the Chinese smartphone brand, is slowly but surely dominating the smartphone markets in India and China. You might already know that Oppo has created many sub-brands under its name. One of the most popular brands among them is Realme which was announced last year.
Now, Oppo has come up with another sub-brand named as Oppo Reno. Under its Reno brand, Oppo has announced the first smartphone named Reno Z. Apart from Oppo Reno Z, this series also contains Reno and Reno 10X zoom smartphones. Oppo has already announced that all the Reno smartphones are launching in India on May 28, 2019.
Oppo Reno Z announced with waterdrop notch and in-display fingerprint sensor
Oppo Reno Z is similar to the other Oppo Reno smartphones in terms of design. This smartphone also has a unique back panel with gradients. There is a strip at the back which has an Oppo branding, camera setup as well as a ceramic dot in the middle. This ceramic dot is similar to Sony Ericson phones in the past which had a similar dot for branding.
As we know, Oppo Reno comes with a pop-up selfie camera where Reno 10x zoon, as the name suggests, has 10x optical zoom. However, Oppo Reno Z comes with neither of these features. Oppo Reno Z has a regular waterdrop notch and dual cameras at the back.
In terms of display, Oppo Reno Z has a 6.4-inch full HD+ display which has a 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor along with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. With this series, Oppo seems to be targetting users who want Snapdragon processor instead of MediaTek SoCs on their devices.
The camera department on Reno Z consists of a 48MP camera along with a 5MP depth sensor. This 48MP camera on Reno Z has a Sony IMX 586 sensor as well. On the front, we get a 32MP selfie camera inside the waterdrop notch. We have an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Oppo Reno Z.
There is a 3950 mAh non-removable battery on the Reno Z with support for 20W fast charging. The prices for Oppo Reno Z starts at EUR 190 or USD 215. This means that Oppo Reno Z could be coming to India at a price of less than Rs. 15,000.
