- Oppo Reno-series includes three smartphones
- Oppo Reno 5G is unlikely to launch in India
- Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition comes with 10x optical zoom support
Oppo Reno phones are all set to make their India debut later this month. The Chinese smartphone maker on Friday sent out press invites for a launch event on May 28. The invite confirms that the company will introduce the new Reno series in India. The company unveiled the Oppo Reno, Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition, and Oppo Reno 5G in China last month, and the big highlight of the three phones was the side-swing selfie camera module that is touted to spin out in 0.8 seconds and includes not just the camera for capturing self-portraits but also the earpiece, front soft light, and rear LED flash.
While Oppo’s press invite confirms that the Reno series is coming to the country, it doesn’t specify whether the company will launch only one of the three phones launched in China, or will launch both standard Oppo Reno and 10X Zoom edition in the country. The pricing and availability details for the Indian market remain a mystery for now. Oppo Reno 5G is unlikely to reach India anytime soon, given the lack of 5G telecom networks in the country.
To recall, the Oppo Reno price in China has been set at CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 30,900) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, while its 6GB RAM + 256GB storage model is priced at CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 34,000) and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage model comes at CNY 3,599 (roughly Rs. 37,100).
