Leaked Oppo Reno Images Reveal Bizarre Tilting Pop-Up Camera


Oppo’s soon to be released Reno handset has had its specs leaked via the Chinese certification group TENAA, and the images show that Oppo’s had yet another brainwave when it comes to fitting selfie cameras onto its phones.

As a result, the latter will come with 4G LTE and 5G capabilities built in.

The Reno will run on Android 9.0 Pie, with Oppo’s ColorOS 6.0 accompanying it. Finally, it’s got a battery capacity of 3,680 mAh, and a combination of 6 or 8GB RAM and 128 or 256GB storage depending on the exact version.

Unlike the previous models though, the Reno has an asymmetrical tilting design, the camera and flash module popping up towards the right hand side of the phone’s top edge. This is best illustrated by some recently leaked renders of the phone. These also show the phone comes with a USB-C port and headphone jack.

As well as the Reno, and the currently available Find X, it’s also been working on a foldable device, which was shown on social media by its vice president of Chinese sales and marketing, Brian Shen.
