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.
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 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.
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. Both have an under-display fingerprint sensor, unlike the Find X which relied on the pop-up camera for both selfies and biometric unlocking. The 10x Zoom is larger and heavier than the standard Reno as well.
