“The handset didn’t score impressive numbers but reached a respectable level on the platform”
OPPO’s much-hyped flagship Reno smartphone went official yesterday and a variant of the handset has already appeared on AnTuTu just after the launch. The variant that appears on the benchmark is the latest Snapdragon 855-toting handset from OPPO with model number OPPO PCCM00. There’s also a Snapdragon 710 variant that doesn’t feature 10x zoom. The model that appeared on AnTuTu has 6GB RAM and 256GB storage.
Talking about the scores, the OPPO Reno scored 3,69,254 points which isn’t quite impressive compared to what other similar processors have clocked in the past. However, some of these gaming smartphones have had higher clocked speeds so the difference is understandable.
As the name suggests, the OPPO Reno aims high with a headline-grabbing 10x lossless zoom feature. However, as said earlier, this feature is exclusive to the 10x Zoom Edition, while the Snapdragon 710 variant hangs on to the wedge-shaped pop-up camera, which is another USP of the Reno series. The 10x Zoom Edition has a 48-megapixel primary sensor (Sony IMX586, 1/2.0-inch, f/1.7), an 8-megapixel 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens, and a 13-megapixel telephoto lens. The low-end variant has dual 48-megapixel + 5-megapixel cameras shooters on the back. Both the phones also come with VOOC 3.0, Game Boost 2.0, and a SuperClear night mode.
The OPPO Reno standard version (without 10x zoom) has a base price of RMB 2,999 (~Rs 30,000) for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. While the Reno 10x Zoom Edition will cost RMB 3,999 (~Rs 41,000) for the base 6GB + 128GB variant. The series is also expected to debut outside of China sometime later this year.
