And add to it a solid spec sheet, and the OPPO Reno2 Z becomes one of the well-rounded camera phones that you can buy under Rs 30,000. Intrigued as to how? Read on to find out.
Quad rear cameras
One of the most headlining features of the OPPO Reno2 Z is its quad-rear camera setup. The smartphone features a primary 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor with f/1.7 aperture. The main sensor is paired with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with 119-degree field of view, a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor, and another 2-megapixel depth sensor for portrait photography. All in all, the Reno2 Z will ensure that it does justice to all kind of shooting scenarios. And what makes it a great camera phone is also its software, which brings us to…
Useful camera-centric features
The camera software on the phone gets features such as AI Beauty mode, HDR Portrait, and Portrait mode. The Reno2 Z also offers a live-focus-in-video feature (Bokeh Mode) on the front-facing 16-megapixel sensor, which ensures that your face always remains in focus with the background nicely blurred. Then there are modes such as AI-based Ultra Dark Mode that help take clear and bright photos at night, even if there’s tiny light source.
Amazing Motion Shots
The OPPO Reno2 Z offers OPPOs industry-leading stabilisation technology called the Ultra Steady Video Mode. Equipped with combination of HIS, EIS and OIS the camera is capable of taking extremely stable pictures and videos, regardless of user’s activity. This delivers excellent image stabilisation in super wide-angle lens no matter how much the camera shakes.
A stunning design
But the OPPO Reno2 Z isn’t just about the camera, it also has looks that will draw everyone’s attention. The handset comes with a unibody design with a glass back that’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It has curved edges that offer a great feel when holding the phone. At the back, the quad-camera setup sits flush with the body. On top of the camera setup, OPPO has included a ceramic dot that slightly lifts the phone up when it’s placed flat on its back. This is a thoughtful feature and ensures that the camera lens doesn’t get scratched. The shining line around the ‘designed for Reno’ branding at the back is a very interesting design highlight too, and helps make the phone stand out from the crowd. The Reno2 Z is available in Luminous Black and Sky White gradient finishes.
OPPO has included a notch-less display on the Reno2 Z with slim bezels all around, enabling it to offer a 91.6 percent screen-to-body ratio. The panoramic screen design is attained thanks to the rising selfie camera that rises from the top center of the phone. A 16-megapixel camera is housed inside the mechanism. An Hidden fingerprint scanner 3.0 is also housed at the bottom of the screen. The latest G3 optical sensor fingerprint unlock technology makes unlocking safer, as its sensors use more light filters.
Coming to the display, the Reno2 Z boasts a 6.53-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080. Thanks to crisp visuals and bezel-less fascia, media consumption on this phone will turn out to be an immersive experience.
In terms of performance, the OPPO Reno2 Z is powered by the MediaTek Helio P90 chipset, which is coupled with massive 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. OPPO Reno2 Z also becomes the “India’s first smartphone” to be powered by MediaTekHelio P90 chipset. OPPO has also included additional software features such as Hyper Boost 2.0, Touch Boost 2.0, Frame Boost 2.0, and Engine Boost 1.0, which improve the overall performance and efficiency of the phone. All of these also aid in faster frame rates, less lag, and better touch response when playing games. In short, the Reno2 Z will be able to handle anything you throw at it.
OPPO has equipped the Reno2 Z with a 4,000mAh battery that features VOOC 3.0 fast charging. This means that you won’t need to look for the charger frequently, and when you do need to charge, you’ll be able to juice up the handset quickly.
