Oppo Reno2 With 20x Zoom Quad Camera To Launch On 28th August
Earlier this year, Oppo launched its flagship device named Reno 10x Zoom. It featured a hybrid 10x Zoom capabilities as the name suggests and features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC. It was released in April alongside a more affordable variant that has watered down specs. After a short run, it is being reported that its successor by the name Reno2 with 20x Zoom will soon make its debut in India.
The Oppo Reno2 will make its debut in India, unlike last time before its eventual launch in other markets. The device was confirmed today (16th August 2019) by the company by a post shared on Twitter. According to the image shared, the Reno2 will feature a quad-camera setup on the rear alongside the signature shark-fin popup selfie shooter. The camera setup is stacked vertically with one on top of the other. Unfortunately, Oppo hasn’t given out any finer details regarding the device in question.
Furthermore, it is also confirmed that the event will see the launch of multiple iterations of the Reno2. Which means, Oppo is likely to introduce a mid-range variant alongside the flagship. It may be possible that the series will feature a 64MP camera similar to its competitor, Redmi and Realme. The latter was previously an Oppo subsidiary so it’s not far fetched that a similar sensor could be introduced between the companies. The flagship in the series might also feature Snapdragon 855+ which is expected to soon be seen in smartphones of competing brands.
Price & Availability
The Oppo Reno2 series will be unveiled on 28th August 2019. It is likely that its pricing will be close to its predecessors due to such a short interval between the generations. The Reno 10x Zoom variant was priced at INR 39,999 while the base variant retailed for INR 32,990. Hence, the price bracket for the series could also revolve around the 30-50k range.
The news is surprising considering the smartphone launched barely 3 months ago in India. In other words, Oppo already is making the previous iteration obsolete in such a short lifespan. However, the news probably arrives after many factors such as new Qualcomm SoC and innovations in the photography department being introduced by its competitors.
