After a few weeks, Oppo finally unveiled its three-strong Reno8 series of smartphones. Reno8 brings MediaTek’s Dimensity 1300 chipset and 80W charging, the Pro model before Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset while the Pro + gets the Dimensity 8100 Plus.
All three phones pack an AMOLED display, a 50MP main camera and a 4,500 mAh battery with 80W SuperVOOC flash charging support although the Pro variants add some more impressive cameras and Oppo’s in-house MariSilicon X NPU found in the flagship Oppo Find X5 Pro.
The top dog Reno8 Pro + gets a 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED with a punch-hole cutout for its 32MP selfie cam. The front camera also brings autofocus capability – Pro+ exclusive feature. Another cosmetic feature here is the thin bezels – the Reno8 Pro+ has 2.37mm top and bottom bezels while the sides measure in at just 1.4mm, which Oppo says is the thinnest ever one of his Reno phones to date.

The third cam the two on the back is an 8MP ultrawide snapper while the third is a 2MP macro shooter.
ColorOS 12.1 on top of Android 12 covers the software front while the 4,500 mAh battery comes with 80W SuperVOOC charging.
