Oppo Reno2 series set for release on August 28 in India

Joining the Reno lineup of devices (that came as a replacement for the R series), Oppo Reno2 series will surprisingly be hitting the Indian market before the OEM’s home country China. Yes you heard it!

As per the rumored specs, Reno2 is likely to portray a Snapdragon 855+ processor. The phone may pack a 4,065mAh battery, VOOC fast charging, in display fingerprint sensor and Sony’s 48MP IMX586 image sensor. We may see a 12GB RAM+ 256GB storage variant priced between INR 35-40K.

Coming to the official specs, Reno 2 series is going to be a Quad camera device with 20x Zoom, as has been teased by the company itself (can be seen in the feature image). Also, the Shark Fin selfie camera has been given a confirmation, meaning, a full screen display, just like predecessor Reno devices.
