Oppo Reno 2 Has Its Key Features And Specifications Leaked
Oppo launched its Reno series of flagship and mid-range devices four months ago. Despite it being announced freshly, the series is already receiving a second-generation update. Previously, we had covered the official announcement and leak regarding three new upcoming Reno 2 series devices. Now, Oppo Reno 2 smartphone has its entire specifications leaked after it was spotted on a Chinese regulatory website TENAA.
Oppo Reno 2 Specs
Oppo Reno 2 is a direct successor to the original Reno smartphone, not to be confused by Reno 10x Zoom flagship which will remain the company’s top-end offering. The latest iteration is speculated to offer a noticeable improvement in most aspects at the announcement expected on 28th August. Similar to its predecessors, Reno 2 will also sport a “shark-fin” pop up selfie camera that will allow for a notchless display. The device may sport a 6.5 inch FHD+ (2,400 x 1080px) AMOLED display on the front.
The listing further reveals that it will be powered by a 3,915mAh battery and may be offered with up to 8GB of RAM. For internal storage, Reno 2 may be available in 2 configurations, 128GB or 256GB. Furthermore, the Chinese website lists of an undisclosed 2.2GHz octa-core processor. It is speculated to be the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730 SoC, an improvement over the Snapdragon 710 chipset found on the original Oppo Reno.
Oppo Reno 2 may also feature a quad-camera module on the rear that will be stacked vertically. The primary camera will be a 48MP shooter alongside three 13MP, 8MP and 2MP sensors respectively. It is assumed that at least one of the cameras is a depth sensor while others will be the 20x Zoom lens. However, Reno 2 may offer 2x optical zoom that allows for 5x hybrid zoom and the 20x digital zoom thereon unlike Reno 10x Zoom which has a 5x optical zoom along with 60x digital zoom. It suggests the upcoming devices do not employ the same periscope lens trick that its previous entry offered.
Additionally, Oppo also shared another teaser that showcased a couple of new features for its Reno 2 series cameras. It includes Ultra Dark Mode, Ultra Steady Video and its 20x Zoom capabilities. Hence, Reno 2 is likely to use its multi-camera system to enhance low light imagery backed by image stabilization.
