Oppo has added a new smartphone in its Reno line up today at an event in China – the Reno Ace. Although it isn’t clear at the moment if this device is placed above the Reno 10x Zoom, it definitely features everything that you expect from a flagship smartphone. Moreover, the Reno Ace is the world’s fastest charging smartphone. For which, it has a 65W charging speed that can fill the battery from zero to hundred under 30 minutes. Yup, you’ve heard that right; we now have a smartphone that charges within a half-hour period. And here is everything you need to know about the device.
Oppo Reno Ace Price, Availability
Oppo is offering the Reno Ace in three memory configurations in China. The most affordable variant has 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and it comes with a price tag of CNY 2,999. The middle variant comes with 8GB RAM + 256GB storage, and it costs CNY 3,199. Whereas, the top-end variant features 12GB RAM + 256GB storage, and it will set you back CNY 3,799. The device will go on sale in China starting from 17th October. The brand hasn’t yet announced the availability of the smartphone for the markets outside China.
Oppo Reno Ace Specifications
The Oppo Reno Ace features a display similar to that of the OnePlus 7T – a 6.5-inch OLED unit with Full HD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. The display has a 500-nit brightness, HDR capability, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. Disappointingly, the screen has a notch at the top, unlike a few other Reno smartphones that feature a pop-up camera for a completely notch-less experience.
The Oppo Reno Ace is powered by the flagship smartphone chipset from Qualcomm – the Snapdragon 855+. And what is surprising is that the device features the Android 10 operating system. Unfortunately, the OS is wrapped under the same, ugly, ColorOS 6.1. All the variants mentioned above make use of UFS 3.0 storage, which, in theory, should offer faster app loading times. The device is backed by a 4000mAh battery. And as I said earlier, the handset has 65W SuperVOOC fast charging feature that charges the device under 30 minutes. Fortunately, the brand ships the device with a 65W charger. What’s interesting here is that Oppo has used Gallium Nitride to make the charger, which helped the brand make the charger compact in size.
The Oppo Reno Ace has a 48MP primary camera at the rear that features PDAF and OIS. It is joined by three other cameras – a 13MP telephoto camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP monochrome sensor to aid in portrait images. As the device has a powerful chipset, its rear camera can record 4K videos at 60 frames per second. It is worth mentioning that only the primary camera at the rear can record videos, while the other three can only capture images. And for selfies, the device makes use of a 16MP sensor at the front.
