OPPO Reno 2 specifications
Starting with the OPPO Reno 2, the handset features a 6.55-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with an impressive 20:9 screen-to-body ratio and full-HD+ resolution. The display bears no notch of bezels whatsoever, but houses in-display fingerprint scanner 3.0 and Corilla Gorilla Glass 6 layer on top. The company claims that the OPPO Reno 2 display has an “improved E3 Sunlight Screen,” which offers sufficient brightness even in bright outdoor environments with less power consumption. The Snapdragon 730G gaming processor ticking at Reno 2’s core is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB user-expandable storage. The handset also features Hyper Boost 2.0, Touch Boost 2.0 + Frame Boost 2.0, and Engine Boost 2.0 to further enhance its performance.
In the camera department, the OPPO Reno 2 features a quad rear camera setup with 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary sensor that supports both OIS and EIS + 13-megapixel telephoto lens + 8-megapixel 116-degree wide-lens + 2-megapixel mono lens setup. The cameras support 5X hybrid zoom and 20X digital zoom to capture images of subjects far off with great details. The front camera gets a 16-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling, and the phone’s camera app includes features such as ultra-dark mode, AI Beauty mode, HDR portrait, ultra macro shot, and portrait mode.
The OPPO Reno 2 runs Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6.1 custom UI out of the box and houses a beefy 4,000mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 fast charging support.
