Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Specifications
Let us start with the most exciting feature of the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, and you guessed it right, it’s the camera. The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, as the name suggests comes with a jaw-dropping, 10x zooming feature in its camera setup. This 10x zoom consists of 6x optical zoom and 10x hybrid zoom, making the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom the first smartphone to feature 6x optical zoom. There are many smartphones in the market with a telephoto camera, but they have either 2x optical zoom or 3x optical zoom. The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom beats them all with its 6x optical zoom. So, with the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, you can capture images and record videos with 6x optical zoom and 10x hybrid zoom.
The device has a total of three cameras at the back – a 48MP primary camera sensor with a conventional field of view, a 13MP periscope camera with 5x optical zoom, and an 8MP ultra-wide camera. The 48MP camera has 26mm focal length, f/1.7 aperture, phase-detection autofocus, laser autofocus, and most importantly, OIS for shake-free images. The 13MP periscope camera has 130mm focal length, f/3.0 aperture, phase-detection autofocus, laser autofocus, and OIS as well. The 8MP ultra-wide camera has 16mm focal length, f/2.2 aperture, and fixed focus. Like most other smartphones nowadays, the rear camera has Super Night Mode for enhanced lowlight photography. The rear camera features 4K video recording at 60 frames per second as well, making the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom’s camera setup a complete package.
Another interesting feature of the Reno 10X Zoom is that the device comes with a completely bezel-less and notch-less display. To make this possible, Oppo has placed the front-facing camera in a motorized pop-up unit. The pop-up unit has a rather unusual design as you can see in the images. The camera in the pop-up unit is a 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. As for the display, it is a 6.6-inch AMOLED unit with Full HD+ resolution. The display covers 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, and it even features Corning Gorilla Glass 6. Speaking of the display, the device has an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Moving on the performance, the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, which is currently the flagship chipset from Qualcomm, and also one of the most powerful smartphone chipsets in the market. In India, the device comes in two configurations – 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. The device runs on Android 9 Pie operating system, and it features Oppo’s recently launched ColorOS 6.0 user interface customization. Moreover, the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom is already on the list of Android Q beta program, meaning that it will be one the first devices to get the final, stable version of Android Q operating system.
The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom comes with a 4065mAh battery, and it features 20W fast VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge fast charging. The device, as you might expect, has all the connectivity options that you would expect from a high-end flagship smartphone, such as, USB Type-C port, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0, dual-SIM with dual-VoLTE, and dual-frequency GPS.
Oppo Reno Specifications
The Oppo Reno is a different phone altogether compared to the Reno 10X Zoom. It neither has the 6x optical zoom periscope camera, nor the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. That being said, the device offers decent hardware for its price. Let’s have a look.
The Oppo Reno comes with a 6.6-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. Just like its sibling, the display on the Oppo Reno is completely bezel-less and notch-less. The screen also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Powering the Oppo Reno is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC. This is the same chipset that you find in the Realme 3 Pro. In India, the Oppo Reno comes in only configuration – 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. The device runs on Android 9 Pie operating system with Color OS 6 customization. Just like its sibling, the Oppo Reno is already on the list of Android Q beta program.
In terms of imaging, the Oppo Reno has a 48MP + 5MP dual-camera setup at the back. The 48MP sensor is the primary camera with a conventional field of view, and the 5MP camera is a depth-sensor. And because the Oppo Reno comes with Snapdragon 710 SoC, instead of the Snapdragon 855, it misses out on 4K60FPS video recording that its sibling, Reno 10X Zoom offers. The front-facing camera on the Oppo Reno is the same 16MP that is in the Reno 10X Zoom.
The Oppo Reno packs a 3765mAh battery and features 20W fast charging. In terms of connectivity, the device has a USB Type-C port, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0, and dual-SIM with dual-VoLTE. The Oppo Reno also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack, that the Reno 10X Zoom misses out on.
