The third smartphone in the series is still shrouded in mystery. Oppo Reno 2F is likely to also feature much of the features regarding camera module but will run on a slightly weaker chipset. The exact display size is currently unknown but going by its INR 20,000 price bracket it can be assumed to be smaller than the former two devices.
The report is yet to be confirmed by the company. However, the specs do seem highly likely as replacing the Reno flagship in just a short amount of time seems like a counterproductive move on their part. More information is expected to be available soon. stay tuned for updates.
