Four months after the Oppo Reno was introduced, its follow-up has been made official.
The Oppo Reno 2 was announced today, complete with a quad rear camera setup that was recently teased by Oppo. The main camera is a 48MP snapper with a Sony IMX586 sensor, f/1.7 aperture, and optical image stabilization. There's also an 8MP wide angle lens with 116-degree field of view, a 13MP telephoto lens, and a 2MP mono lens.
Oppo touts that the cameras on the Reno 2 are capable of 5x "hybrid zoom" and a 20x digital zoom. That's not the only camera trick that this phone has, though, as it's also got an Ultra Dark Mode to help you capture better low-light photos as well as an Ultra Steady Video feature with OIS and EIS.
And then there's the selfie camera. Just like the first Oppo Reno, the Reno 2 has a pop-up wedge-shaped 16MP front-facing camera. This camera pops up in 0.8 seconds and comes with free-fall protection to save it in case of a drop.
The display on the Oppo Reno 2 is a 6.5-inch 2400x1080 AMOLED display with up to 800 nits of brightness, slim bezels, 20:9 aspect ratio, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. There's a Snapdragon 730G processor inside the Reno 2 along with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of built-in storage, a 4000mAh battery, and VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 fast charging. Rounding things out is a USB-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and Android 9 Pie running below Oppo's ColorOS 6.1 user interface.
Also announced today are two variants of the Reno 2, the Reno 2 Z and Reno 2 F. As noted by The Verge, the Oppo Reno 2 Z (shown below) swaps to a MediaTek Helio P90 processor and has a 48MP Sony IMX586 main camera but no OIS, 8MP wide angle cam, 2MP monochrome camera, and a 2MP portrait snapper for capturing depth info. It's also got a 6.5-inch 1080p display, in-display fingerprint sensor, 4000mAh battery, USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and VOOC Flash Charge 3.0. Oh, and it ditches the wedge-shaped pop-up camera of the Reno 2 for a more traditional pop-up module.
And then there's the Oppo Reno 2 F, is largely similar to the Reno 2 Z save for a couple of changes. It's got a MediaTek Helio P70 processor, a model with 6GB of RAM, and a 48MP Samsung ISOCELL GM1 camera instead of a Sony IMX586.
When it comes to pricing, the top-end Oppo Reno 2 will cost Rs. 36,990 ($513 USD) while the Oppo Reno 2 Z will be priced at Rs. 29,990 ($418 USD). There's no pricing info for the Reno 2 F right now.
Now that it's official, what do you think of the Oppo Reno 2? Does its quad camera setup have you interested in trying it out?
