Oppo Reno 7 Z 5G Hardware Specs
The Oppo Reno 7 Z 5G takes design cues from the Reno 7 Pro with its flat frame design. Moving on, it sports a 6.43” FHD+ AMOLED display with a standard 60Hz refresh rate and 600 nits peak brightness. Powering the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chip mated to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.0 storage. If needed, the RAM can be expanded by an additional 5GB using Oppo’s RAM Expansion software. Likewise, the storage is also expandable via a microSD card up to 1TB.
Handling photography duties is a primary 64MP camera which is complemented by a 2MP depth camera to assist with bokeh shots and a 2MP macro lens. The Reno 7 Z 5G’s party piece is an RGB light strip around the lens ring of the primary and depth cameras. Called the Dual Orbit Lights, they can be used for aesthetic purposes or as notification lights for calls and messages. Oppo states two hours of shining in breathing mode will only consume 1% of battery life.
Upfront, there is a 16MP camera nestled in a punch-hole cut out for selfies. Taking advantage of the camera setup are shooting modes like Bokeh Flare Portrait, Selfie HDR, AI Colour Portrait, AI Scene Enhancement and Dual-Video mode to name a few. These modes have been trickled down from the Reno 7 and Reno 7 Pro.
As the name suggests, there is a 5G modem for a high-speed mobile data connection. Besides that, you also get 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC. Unlocking the phone will be easy thanks to an in-display fingerprint sensor. There is also a single, bottom-firing speaker and a 3.5mm headphone jack for your audio needs. Lastly, you don’t have to worry about accidental splashes as the Reno 7 Z 5G is rated for IPX4 water resistance.
Oppo has packed the Reno 7 Z 5G with a 4,500mAh battery that supports 33W SuperVOOC fast charging. Expect to fully charge the device in around 63 minutes with the included 33W charger. Out of the box, the phone will come with ColorOS 12 running on top of Android 11.
