“The new OPPO Z-series line up includes 2Z, 3Z, 4Z, 5Z, 6Z, 7Z, 8Z, 9Z, 10Z, 20Z, 30Z, 40Z, and 50Z smartphones”
OPPO officially confirmed that it would be discontinuing the R-series lineup for the flagship devices; instead, it will be replaced with the new Reno series and the brand will continue the Find series. The Chinese smartphone maker also patented the Find Y series. Now, OPPO has trademarked 13 new smartphones under the new Z-lineup. It has filed a trademark for 2Z, 3Z, 4Z, 5Z, 6Z, 7Z, 8Z, 9Z, 10Z, 20Z, 30Z, 40Z, and 50Z smartphones. All these are under category 9, which means they are described as “mobile phones; smartphones; smartphone software; headsets; battery chargers.”
However, details, including the launch timeline and the segment that would be targeted, aren’t clear at the moment. It’s possible the Z-series could be a mid-range line-up that would be replacing the R-series. In the meantime, OPPO confirmed to launch Reno Ace smartphone sometime in October. The handset is confirmed to feature 65W SuperVOOC fast-charging technology and will enter mass production as early as October. It is also tipped to feature 90Hz display. While it isn’t confirmed, the Reno Ace could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ mobile platform.
Separately, an OPPO phone with model number PCKM70 was spotted at TENAA. The listing suggests it would sport a 6.6-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display, 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage and pack a 3,950mAh battery with fast-charging support. It also reveals the handset would rock a 16MP selfie snapper and a quad-camera setup which could contain a 48MP primary lens, a 13-megapixel secondary sensor, an 8-megapixel unit and lastly, a 16-megapixel sensor. The OPPO handset is also expected to support 5G. While there’s a possibility that the OPPO PCKM70 could be the Reno Ace, we need to wait for a while to know more.
