HistoryEdit

Oppo previewed the 10x Zoom's camera system in February. After the announcement on April 10, Oppo also revealed a 5G variant at Swisscom's 5G network media event. It will share its battery and chipset with the 10x Zoom, cost around US$1000 and presumably use Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 modem. The 5G model will also be the first smartphone officially compatible with the NReal Light AR glasses.[6]

DesignEdit

The Reno and the Reno 10x Zoom both utilize a metal/glass construction, with Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and Gorilla Glass 5 on the back. Both phones sport a distinctive wedge or fin-like pop-up camera mechanism that opens in 0.8 seconds. Oppo calls it a Pivot Rising camera, and it also houses the earpiece and flash, allowing for a full screen display. Oppo claims that it can withstand up to 200,000 actuations before failing[7] and will last for over 5 years, and has added fall detection to automatically close and protect the camera. The Reno Z lacks this mechanism and has a traditional selfie camera with a small notch instead. Additionally, all four have a small ceramic bump centered on the back to protect the glass from scratches. The 10x Zoom is available in black and blue finishes, while the Reno and Reno Z offer additional pink, purple, orange and white finishes. The Reno will have an exclusive Inspiration Edition with drawings on the back and stickers in the retail box.[8]

SpecificationsEdit

HardwareEdit

While the regular and 10x zoom variants are similar externally, the 10x Zoom features upgraded internals. Compared to the standard Reno, the 10x Zoom uses a more powerful Snapdragon 855/Adreno 640 chipset opposed to the Snapdragon 710/Adreno 616 chipset on the normal model. Being a lower cost model, the Reno Z uses a MediaTek/PowerVR chipset instead. The 10x Zoom also has a 4065 mAh battery and a 6.6 inch screen, while the regular model has a 3765 mAh battery and a 6.4 inch screen. Some features are exclusive to one variant: the 10x Zoom lacks the audio jack found on the regular model, but has a microSD card slot. The 10x Zoom's camera is also upgraded over the standard model; it replaces the depth sensor with a periscope telephoto lens and a wide-angle lens, and offers 5x optical zoom with laser autofocus. However, only 6x hybrid zoom and 10x hybrid zoom toggles are offered in the camera viewfinder.[9] Both have an under-display fingerprint sensor, unlike the Find X which relied on the pop-up camera for both selfies and biometric unlocking.[10] The 10x Zoom is larger and heavier than the standard Reno as well.

Oppo also claims that the phone uses Nokia OZO audio recording technology.[11]

SoftwareEdit

All four phones will run on Android 9.0 (Pie) with Oppo's ColorOS 6 skin.
