OPPO held a huge event in India and announced the new Reno 2 series, starting with the entry-level OPPO Reno 2.

Unlike its predecessor, the new OPPO Reno 2 now has a quad-camera setup on the back. The main highlight here is its 13-megapixel telephoto shooter that can do 5x of hybrid zoom and up to 20x of digital zoom.

It also comes with a 48-megapixel primary camera with a Sony IMX 586 flagship sensor. Completing the foursome of cameras are the 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

That’s an identical setup found on the also-new Reno 2 Z and Reno 2 F.

The processor was bumped up to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G (from Snapdragon 710) chipset, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.


An almost bezel-less 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen is seen on the front, which was made possible by its sharks-fin style 16-megapixel camera on the top.

The design is still identical to its predecessor. But this time, it has a shinier curved Corning Gorilla Glass 5 material on the back.  The battery was also bumped up to 4,000mAh (from 3,765mAh) with VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
