OPPO Reno 2 series launched; Specs, prices and availability!

OPPO just launched its new Reno 2 smartphones in India today. The smartphones covers pretty much all market segments, but has almost of the same features. If not for the use of different SoCs. Now, we will take a look at the specifications, pricing, and availability of the three variants.


The OPPO Reno 2 offers a 6.55-inch Dynamic AMOLED with full HD+ resolution featuring a 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and in-display fingerprint sensor. And thanks to its unusual sharkfin pivot-rising camera design, there will be no notch on the panel.

The Reno 2Z and Reno 2F, on the other hand, comes with slightly smaller display, coming at only 5.53-inch. Regardless, both devices features the same full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED panel, and in-display fingerprint sensor. Although we are not entirely sure if both the phones features the same DCI-P3-certified display.

Inside, the Reno 2 is powered by Qualcomm’s 8mm Snapdragon 730G chipset, with 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of expandable storage. For the Reno 2Z, there will be MediaTek Helio P90 SoC, while the Reno 2F will sport last year’s MediaTek Helio P70 SoC.

Storage-wise, the Reno 2Z has 8GB RAM, and 256GB of storage, whereas the Reno 2F, while also featuring 8GB RAM, will only come with 128GB of expandable storage.

For the imaging, all three devices features almost the same setup. At the back, there will be a 48MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide angle lens, a 13MP telephoto lens, as well as 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. With that said, the all the phones offer up to 5x hybrid zoom, and up to 20x digital zoom (which you shouldn’t be doing).

On the front, all handsets features the same 16MP camera hidden inside the sharkfin pivot-rising mechanism. However, what makes the Reno 2 different than the other two variants is that its front-facing camera can capture live bokeh video. So far, we have only seen this feature on flagship Samsung devices.

Keeping the lights on is the same 4000mAh battery for all the variants. There is also a support for VOOC 3.0 fast charging. All the phones will ship with the new ColorOS 6.1, on top of Android 9 Pie.

Pricing, and availability

The OPPO Reno 2 is priced at ₹36,990 ($515) in India, while the Reno 2Z will set you back ₹29,990 ($418). The Reno 2 will be available in India starting September 20, while the Reno 2Z will be on the shelf as early as September 6. Meanwhile, the Reno 2F is slated to go on sale in India sometime in November this year. Stay tuned!
