The OPPO Reno images published by TENAA confirm even the Lite version will not have a notch or a punch-hole in the display. Instead, the smartphone will adopt an unusual tilted pop-up camera design. On the back of the phone, we find a clean design with a dual-camera setup and an LED flash module.
Moving on to the specifications, OPPO Reno Lite TENAA listing confirms the smartphone will sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution. Thanks to the narrow bezels and a pop-up selfie camera, the OPPO Reno Lite will be quite compact for a smartphone with such a large display. It measures 156.6 x 74.3 x 9.0mm and weighs in at 185 grams. Under the hood, it is listed to be powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, which is likely Qualcomm’s 10nm Snapdragon 710 going by the clock speeds. The phone will be available in two memory configurations: 6GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage.
For optics, OPPO Reno Lite will come equipped with a 48MP + 5MP dual-camera setup at the rear and a 16MP pop-up camera for selfies. On the other hand, the top-end OPPO Reno version is expected to have a more impressive triple-lens camera system with 10x lossless zoom technology. The TENAA listing also reveals a 3680mAh capacity battery with fast charging support and an In-display fingerprint sensor.
