What to expect at the Oppo Reno launch

Oppo has already previewed the 5G version of the handset at a Swisscom event a couple of weeks ago (Switzerland's Swisscom has already announced a 5G network). The Chinese firm has also previewed the flagship phone series in China so we already know a reasonable amount about it - check our main feature for all the details. 

There looks to be four versions of Reno in all - the standard Oppo Reno, the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, the Oppo Reno 5G and the Oppo Reno Lite, which we've only heard a little bit about and which may not come to Europe.

Oppo previewed its 10x zoom tech at Mobile World Congress in February (5x optical, 10x hybrid zoom). In the preview we saw, Oppo used a three-camera setup consisting of 48-megapixel primary lens, 120-degree ultra wide angle lens plus a telephoto. We're expecting this setup to be part of the premium Oppo Reno 10X handset and it's also in the 5G phone, too.

These premium devices will be based around Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 platform, with an edge-to-edge OLED display and a pop-up camera. The standard Reno is believed to use the Snapdragon 710 instead.
