Oppo's Reno 2: The most "2019' phones in 2019


Oppo Reno 2

Reno 2 is the name of Oppo’s new series launched in India.Oppo has launched three new devices under the new series with hardware which gets some of us excited. The three devices launched go by the names Reno 2, Reno 2F and Reno 2Z. What stands out about these devices is their cameras. They boast of a quad-core back camera setup with a pop-up selfie camera. The pop-up camera is peculiar in its design and does not look similar to the one plus 7 pro’s camera. Oppo decided to go for a shark-fin design with the camera which is another approach to achieving the bezel-less display everyone wants.

Reno 2.
Reno 2 is the most impressive among the three devices. Even though it does not pack a snapdragon 855 but 730G instead, it still provides good value at the price of  Rs 36,990. At that price, RAM and 256GB internal storage. Alongside it is the Adreno  618 GPU and also has Game Boost 3.0 to enhance frame rates when gaming. Battery performance should be good, to say the least, as it comes with 4000mAH of juice with 20w Flash charge 3.0 via USB type-c. The quad-camera setup consists of a primary 48MP Sony IMX586 f/1.7 sensor and an 8MP 116-degree ultra-wide-angle sensor. The remaining two that make up the quad setup include a 13MP  telephoto lens and a 2MP portrait sensor. The rear camera on this device can shoot 2x optical zoom, 5x hybrid zoom, and 20x digital zoom. It has an ultra-dark mode for shooting in low light. The Reno 2 also comes with Optical image stabilization(EIS), Electronic Image Stabilisation(EIS)  and ultra steady mode which stabilizes any shakes that may occur while taking videos. The shark-fin pop up camera has a 16MP f/2.0 front camera for selfies. It has a 6.55-inch AMOLED and notch-less display with an impressive 93.1 screen-to-body ratio.



Reno 2z.
The Reno 2z starts at Rs 29,990. The main difference between the Reno 2 and Reno 2z is the processor. This version packs a MediaTek  P90 SoC with 8GB RAM,256GB of internal storage and a 4000Mah battery with VOOC 3.0 fast charging. The setup includes a 48MP+8MP+2MP+2MP setup and 16MP pop-up selfie camera. It also has Game Boost 3.0 to enhance gaming.
