Chinese smartphone giant Oppo has announced yesterday regarding its plans to start a new sub-brand named Reno. The brand has also stated that the first device in the Reno lineup will be unveiled on the 10th of April.
Today, few key specifications of the upcoming device have leaked online and it has revealed the major interesting aspects of the handset. First of all, the chipset used in the device is not by any means a flagship one.
Earlier, it was rumored to come with Snapdragon 855 but the processor used in the device is a Snapdragon 710 according to the database of Singapore’s IMDA (Info-communications Media Development Authority) and Bluetooth SIG.
The model number of the device will be CPH1917. It sports a huge 6.4-inch display which is expected to be Full HD+ resolution. In terms of optics, there is a 48 MP + 5 MP dual rear camera setup along with LED flash. The cameras are mounted vertically on the center of the rear side. For selfies, it uses a 16 MP sensor.
A video teaser has also been leaked which shows a triple rear camera setup. Take a look at the tweet below.

In terms of software, it runs on ColorOS v6.0 based on Android 9 Pie. The brand had told the media that 10x lossless zoom is ready to be deployed in their smartphones back in MWC 2019. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 5.0.
There were rumors about a phone with Snapdragon 855 SoC, 10x hybrid zoom, and a 4065 mAh battery but it appears like that it could be a high-end version of this device or a completely different one.
We’ll have to wait to know more about the device, but as the launch event is still a month away, we expect leaks to come out in the upcoming days. Stay tuned for updates.
