OPPO announces the cheaper Reno Z, two swanky new colors for the Reno
- OPPO unveiled the Reno Z, the cheapest member of the company’s series of Reno phones.
- OPPO also unveiled two new colors for the normal Reno: Coral and Inspiration Edition.
- The Reno Z and two new Reno colors will be available in China starting June 6.
Starting on the front, the Reno Z features a 6.4-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution, support for HDR10, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Above the display is a teardrop-style notch that surrounds the 32MP selfie camera.
Around back is a dual-camera setup comprised of a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor and 5MP depth sensor. As with other phones, the Reno Z’s 48MP camera likely uses pixel binning to combine four pixels into one. The result is a 12MP image that theoretically contains more data than a typical 12MP image.
Under the hood, the Reno Z features the MediaTek Helio P90 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. There’s also a version with 8GB of RAM that strangely cuts the storage amount in half, down to 128GB. Keeping the lights on is a 4,035mAh battery that supports OPPO’s 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charging standard.
Finally, the Reno Z runs ColorOS 6 on top of Android 9 Pie.
In related news, OPPO today also announced two new colors for the regular Reno: Coral and Inspiration Edition. Coral looks more like a peach orange, so be prepared to get some eyeballs cast your way if you walk around in public with it.
Subjectively, the Inspiration Edition features a more eye-catching design. Clad in a dark blue and purple colorway, the Inspiration Edition color features a litany of doodles and drawings on the back. Some doodles are vertically-arranged on the stripe and given different colors to stand out against the other doodles.
The Reno Z and the new Coral and Inspiration Edition colors for the regular Reno will be available June 6 in China. Oddly enough, the 6GB/256GB and 8GB/128GB versions cost the same 2,499 yuan (~$362). Meanwhile, the Coral and Inspiration Edition variants of the Reno cost 3,299 yuan (~$480).
