While the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and the Huawei P30 Pro are both available in India, the OPPO Reno isn’t. It is unlikely to arrive in the Indian market anytime soon, but we do hope it finds its way to our shores in the next few weeks. The OPPO Reno 10X Zoom Edition with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at RMB 3,999 (Rs 41,000). You will have to pay RMD 4,499 (Rs 46,000) if you want 256GB of storage, and the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant is RMB 4,799 (Rs 51,000).

The Huawei P30 Pro price in India is Rs 71,990 for the lone model with 8GB RAM + 256GB storage configuration. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ seems to be most expensive phone here. The base variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at Rs 73,900, whereas the variant with 8GB RAM + 512GB storage is Rs 91,900. If you want more, you can have the variant with 12GB RAM and 1TB storage for Rs 1,17,900.

OPPO Reno 10X Zoom Edition vs Samsung Galaxy S10+ vs Huawei P30 Pro specifications 

All three phones here are powered by different processors. The OPPO Reno 10X Zoom Edition uses the Snapdragon 855 chipset, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ in India is powered by the Exynos 9820, and the Huawei P30 Pro houses the Kirin 980 processor. The OPPO Reno 10X Zoom Edition has an all-screen display with no notches or holes. Instead, it uses a new type of pop-up mechanism for the selfie camera, which is called the Shark Fin module. It gets a 6.65-inch full-HD+ display that’s protected with Gorilla Glass 6. The display also houses an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Galaxy S10+ resorts to a hole in the display setup with a 6.4-inch panel and an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. The Huawei P30 Pro has a tiny teardrop notch on the 6.47-inch AMOLED FHD+ display. It too, gets an in-display fingerprint sensor. The P30 Pro has a better rear fascia, compared to the Galaxy S10+, but the OPPO Reno beats them all in terms of design.
