Oppo Malaysia has announced that they are bringing a new wave of inspiration and creativity to Malaysia with their latest Reno series. The Oppo Reno is seen as a replacement for the R-series and its top of the line model comes with a periscope camera module that’s capable of 10X hybrid zoom.
Oppo Malaysia has not mentioned any launch dates but we think it should be happening by the end of this month before Hari Raya. The base Oppo Reno model has passed our SIRIM certification a few months ago.
To recap, the standard Oppo Reno comes with a 6.4″ Full HD+ AMOLED display and it runs on a Snapdragon 710 processor. The device gets a dual-camera setup with a 48MP f/1.7 main camera plus a secondary 5MP f/2.4 shooter for depth effects.
Meanwhile, the higher Oppo Reno 10X edition is a slightly larger device with a 6.6″ Full HD+ AMOLED display and it runs on a more powerful Snapdragon 855 processor. In the imaging department, it gets a 48MP f/1.7 main camera, a 13MP f/3.0 periscope shooter and an 8MP f2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera. Both main and telephoto cameras get OIS on the 10X edition. For selfies, the Reno duo also gets a wedged shaped pop-up 16MP f/2.0 camera which sets it apart from other devices in the market.
In China, the Oppo Reno series are priced as follows:
6GB RAM + 128GB storage – 2,999CNY (around RM1,844)
6GB RAM + 256GB storage – 3,299CNY (around RM2,028)
8GB RAM + 256GB storage – 3,599CNY (around RM2,213)
Oppo Reno 10X zoom
6GB RAM + 128GB storage – 3,999CNY (around RM2,459)
6GB RAM + 256GB storage – 4,499CNY (around RM2,766)
8GB RAM + 256GB storage -4,799CNY (around RM2,951)
From the looks of it, the Oppo Reno is more affordable than the Find X. If the top of the line model with 8GB RAM + 256GB storage is priced at RM2,999, that’s about RM800 less than the Huawei P30 Pro which also comes with a 10X Hybrid zoom feature.
