OPPO Reno 2 5G: the successor of Reno 10x Zoom

9 September 2019

OPPO launched three phones in its Reno 2 series just last month. Called Reno 2, Reno 2F and Reno 2Z, none of the phones house a top-of-the-line Snapdragon processor and the lack of a flagship SoC and periscope camera means they’re not true successors to the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom. This could change soon with the appearance of the Reno 2 5G.

The rumored OPPO Reno 2 5G has been sighted on Chinese certification website TENAA. While the listing does not reveal much in terms of the specifications, the images clearly show a vertically aligned camera setup on the back, where the third sensor is the prominent square periscope lens, similar to the one seen on the Reno 10x Zoom.

While the Reno 2 does feature 20x digital zoom, it’s not a hybrid digital-optical zoom like the Reno 10x Zoom. With the addition of the periscope camera, the Reno 2 5G could very well deliver high-quality hybrid zoom. Given that the Reno 10x Zoom featured a triple camera setup, we’re unsure what the fourth camera on this upcoming variant does. It’s possible this is a portrait camera as seen on the current Reno 2 line-up.

The TENAA listing of the Reno 2 5G further confirms a 6.6-inch display, a tad larger than the rest of the Reno 2 devices. The battery capacity stands at 3,930mAh and the phone is listed with support for 5G. It’s also noteworthy that OPPO VP, Brian Shen recently teased a new Reno device with a 90Hz display and Super VOOC charging. However he did say this isn’t the Reno 2, so it could be a new device in the series altogether.

Anyhow, the TENAA listing of the Reno 2 5G suggests a launch is near. We’ll just have to wait and watch what OPPO has in store.
