Oppo announces Oppo Reno smartphone with 10x zoom

Both devices have the same design with minimal screen edges with no notches or a hole in the screen for the front camera. Instead, the front camera is in a sloping element that slides out of the housing at the top of the phones. This mechanism should last at least five years, based on the situation in which the front camera is extended a hundred times daily. The Oppo F11 Pro also has an extendable camera, although it comes straight from the top edge. Both Oppo Reno smartphones are equipped with OLED screens, although the Reno 10X Zoom Edition can be considered as the flagship that is the only one with the periscopic multi-lens setup to enable 10x optical zoom.

This low positioned phone lacks the 10x zoom camera, but does have the same 48-megapixel camera, even though it has it the Standard Edition does not have optical stabilization, this phone also has to do without the wide-angle camera, instead a 5-megapixel is integrated, videos can also be recorded in 4k, but instead of 60fps the limit is 30fps. of the more expensive variant, the battery has a lower capacity with 3765mAh and an option to expand the storage space with a micro-sd card has also been omitted from this version.

Both devices are coming to Europe; Oppo is organizing an event in Zurich, Switzerland, on 24 April, where European prices are likely to be announced. Then there is probably also more information about the briefly mentioned 5g variant of the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition.
