OPPO Reno 8, Reno 8 Pro Expected Sale Date in India

OPPO Reno8 series is launching on July 18 and we expect the smartphones to go on sale in India a few days after the launch. 

OPPO Reno 8, Reno 8 Pro Specifications and Features

OPPO has not shared the details of the OPPO Reno 8 and Reno 8 Pro smartphones, but there have been multiple reports which have given us a good idea about the expected features of these smartphones. Here are some of the main ones that have caught our eyes. 

120Hz AMOLED Display 

You might say that any mid-range phone these days is expected to feature an AMOLED panel with a high refresh rate support. But as per the leaks, expect both the OPPO Reno 8 and the Reno 8 Pro smartphone to carry this display. AMOLEDs are known for their rich colours and deep blacks and when you pair them with a 120Hz refresh rate screen, the panel becomes extremely fluid and delivers a smooth experience while using. This becomes the ideal screen for watching videos and binging your favourite shows. 

MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max Chipset 

OPPO Reno 8 Pro 5G is rumoured to be powered by the new MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max SoC with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage that is non-expandable. But the new MediaTek chipset offers a lot of promise with its top-end performance that apparently is a tough match for the premium Snapdragon 8 series chipset. So, to see OPPO Reno 8 Pro with this hardware could make it a powerhouse of a device, if OPPO launches the device with this chipset. 

Cameras In Focus 

Most of OPPO’s social promotions clearly highlight that the camera is one of the strong points of the Reno8 series. And from what we have heard, OPPO Reno 8 and the 8 Pro will feature a triple rear camera setup that includes a 50MP primary sensor along with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 2MP macro sensor. The main sensor promises quality night photography shots, and we are eager to see if that’s true with the new Reno8 series. 

Other Specifications and Features

It is fair to say that OPPO Reno 8 Pro 5G is likely to hog most of the limelight. But OPPO is likely to offset the excitement by giving OPPO Reno 8 an aggressive price. The vanilla Reno 8 is expected to get a 6.43-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. It is likely to be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1300 SoC, which we recently got with the OnePlus Nord 2T smartphone. OPPO Reno 8 Pro 5G is likely to have a 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. OPPO is expected to have a 4,500mAh battery that could offer 80W fast charging speed.
