A new member of the Reno 7 series has been announced. Here we have the OPPO Reno 7 Z 5G, which has a lot of familiar and one unique feature.

The OPPO Reno 7 Z 5G has RGB lights around the cameras on the back, similar to the Reno 7 Pro 5G that had it on the camera island. Unlike the ones seen on gaming phones, this is meant to give a subtle and elegant look. Dubbed as the Dual Orbit Lights, it lights up when you get notifications or when charging. This additional touch complements the device’s OPPO Glow Design.


Since we’re here, let’s talk about the cameras. What we have here is a 64-megapixel primary shooter with two 2-megapixel sensors. Sadly, there’s no ultra-wide or telephoto, but it does have a 16-megapixel selfie-snapper on the front.

The front-facing camera peaks through a punch-hole on the top-left of the 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. The screen is capped at 60Hz, no high refresh rate.


Under the hood, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 octa-core processor, with 128GB of storage that can be expanded up to 1TB via a microSD card, and 8GB of RAM that can also be expanded virtually by borrowing from the storage.

At 4,500mAh, it doesn’t have the largest battery around. However, OPPO claims that a full charge will only take about an hour with its 33W adapter.


The OPPO Reno 7 Z 5G was first spotted in Thailand with the price yet to be known. Since we’ve seen Reno Z devices in the Philippines before, it should arrive here alongside the Reno 7 and 7 Pro.
