Oppo Malaysia has started teasing its upcoming smartphone and it’s the new Reno 4 series. This comes barely 3 months since Oppo released the Reno 3 and 3 Pro in the Malaysian market.
According to the teaser, the Reno 4 series will come with a quad-camera setup which is different from the Chinese version that comes with a triple-camera array. It is highly likely that Oppo will release a different Reno 4 for countries outside of China.
As a comparison, the current Reno 3 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 765G with 5G support in China. However, in global markets such as India and Malaysia, the Reno 3 Pro runs on a MediaTek Helio P90 unit.
Oppo India has started teasing the Reno 4 Pro on its website which reveals a familiar dual-curved display that comes with a single punch-hole camera on the top left corner. According to the teaser page, the Reno 4 Pro will feature a 90Hz refresh rate.
[ UPDATE 21/07/2020 12:40 ]: Oppo Malaysia has confirmed that we are getting the Reno 4 Pro and it will come with a 3D Borderless sense screen with a 90Hz refresh rate.
Interestingly, Oppo Indonesia has teased a different product and it is the Oppo Reno 4. At first glance, it looks like a triple-camera setup but it appears to have a tiny 4th camera at the top which could be used for macro shots.
So far we don’t have the full specs for the new Reno 4 series for our market and it is likely that we would see both the Reno 4 and Reno 4 Pro in Malaysia. Oppo India will launch its device on the 31st of July while Indonesia’s launch event is taking place in August.
Since Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus are related brands, it won’t be a surprise if the Reno 4 Pro has a lot of similarities with the Vivo X50 and the OnePlus Nord. We expect the Malaysian launch to take place in the coming weeks.
