Last week, we exclusively reported specifications of three Reno 2 series devices including the Reno 2Z and Reno 2F that are launching on August 29th. But there’s more. OPPO will soon be debuting a Reno A series handset for which we have some more first-hand information today. OPPO is trying to consolidate its entire portfolio and the Reno A series seems to be a part of that reshuffle.
We’ve got a render of the Reno A and it looks like pretty much other current OPPO mid-rangers like the OPPO A5s and A9. The OPPO Reno A has a glossy design and dual rear cameras but the fingerprint reader seems to be absent. This could also mean that the display is AMOLED and the biometric sensor is buried beneath the screen. The front has the now-common waterdrop notch and a sizable chin at the bottom. In terms of specifications, the Reno A is likely to house a Snapdragon 710 SoC similar to what has been reported of the Reno 2Z. The dimensions of the phone are 158.4×75.4×7.8mm which translates to a 6.5-inch display roughly and the handset weighs 169g. As per Ishan Agarwal who is the source, the display is Full-HD+ and is powered by a 3,600mAh battery. For now, we know of only two variants, 6GB RAM + 64GB/128GB storage.
The dual rear cameras consist of a 16MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 2MP depth sensor while the front has a 25MP selfie shooter with f/2.4 aperture.
The Reno A will be available in Blue and Black colours although we still don’t know anything about the exact launch date. However, since OPPO is adamant on launching half a dozen phones before Diwali, we expect something official about the Reno A in the coming weeks.
