OPPO today took the wraps off its latest Reno 2 series in India and revealed a trio of smartphones equipped with a motorized selfie camera, a full-screen design, and quad cameras on the back. Say hello to the OPPO Reno 2, Reno 2Z, and Reno 2F.
(Update, October 12: Two of them will be released in the Philippines! Read OPPO Reno 2, Reno 2F, Enco Q1 PH launch set for Oct 17.)
All three also pack a 48-megapixel main sensor and a dedicated night mode for the camera and run OPPO’s own ColorOS 6.1 based on Android Pie. VOOC 3.0 is included in the package as well, allowing for fast charging times using the bundled 20-watt power brick.
Notably, the high-end Reno 2 comes with a bevy of shooting modes, including Ultra Dark Mode (using the processor’s NPU), Ultra Macro Mode, Ultra Steady Video (via the ultra-wide-angle camera), plus the ability to add bokeh while shooting video for both front and rear cameras. Some of these features, like Ultra Dark Mode, Bokeh Effect Video, and Ultra Steady Video, can be found on the Reno 2Z as well.
Expect improved stabilization
However, despite the curious naming choice for the new phones, the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Edition with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 will remain the flagship of the company’s ever-expanding smartphone lineup.
OPPO Reno 2, Reno 2Z, and Reno 2F prices and release dates
In India, the Reno 2 costs ₹36,990, or roughly P26,986 or $515, and the first sale has been set for September 20.
The OPPO Reno 2Z, on the other hand, has a price tag of ₹29,990 (P21,888 or $418) and will be available for purchase starting September 6.
Finally, the OPPO Reno 2F has a release set for November, but pricing remains up in the air for now.
The new Reno handsets will be sold exclusively on Flipkart. No word yet on when and if all of them will be launched in the Philippines.
OPPO Reno 2
Talking about the top-end variant of the series, the OPPO Reno 2 features a 6.55-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with an under-display fingerprint scanner and a 2,400 x 1,080 resolution.
The front panel uses Gorilla Glass 6 for added protection against drops or scars from daily wear and tear, while the glass on the back is Gorilla Glass 5. It’s less durable yet still effective in keeping the Reno 2 looking new longer.
The Reno 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 730G coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of fast UFS 2.1 storage.
The four-camera setup includes a 13-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and up to 20x digital zoom in pictures, as previously teased by OPPO. There’s also an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2-megapixel monochrome shooter.
OPPO Reno 2Z and Reno 2F
The OPPO Reno 2Z and Reno 2F are similar to one another in terms of design, with both sporting a 6.53-inch AMOLED display and Gorilla Glass 5 on the front as well as the back of the smartphones. They both have a pop-up camera for selfies, too. The main difference between the two are their chipsets and onboard storage.
The Reno 2Z pairs a MediaTek Helio P90 chip with 256GB storage, whereas the Reno 2F draws power from a Helio P70 and has 128GB storage. As you might know, the Helio P70 is the same spec that OPPO is using in its F11 Pro.
Instead of a high-end Sony IMX586, the sensor used in the Reno 2, the Reno 2Z and Reno 2F carry a Samsung Isocell Bright GM1 sensor, which also has 48 megapixels like the Sony.
