Weekly poll: Oppo Reno8 trio awaits your verdict – Reuters

Earlier this week, Oppo unveiled the Reno8 series, which arrives with three new chipsets. All three phones have high refresh rate AMOLED displays, 50MP main cameras and 4,500mAh batteries that charge at 80W. Is one of the three likely to be your next phone?

We’ll start with the Oppo Reno8 Pro+ as the most impressive model of the trio. It features the Dimensity 8100-Max chipset, paired with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. This is going to be a fast phone. The Dimensity is aided by the custom MariSilicon X chip that performs AI-based processing on photos and videos from the 50MP IMX766 (1/1.56″) sensor.

The Oppo Reno8 Pro has chosen the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 – can Qualcomm’s new mid-range offering stand up to MediaTek’s Dimensity 8000 range? We are curious to know. This phone has a slightly smaller 6.62-inch AMOLED display, still running at 120Hz. The body of the phone has basically the same overall dimensions, though.

The Oppo Reno8 isn’t exactly more compact either, differing by fractions of a millimetre. It has the smallest screen here, 6.43 inches, and it runs at 90Hz. This one is powered by the Dimensity 1300, a refreshed version of the 1200 chipset. The camera setup is similar, although unlike both others, there’s no 8MP ultrawide camera or the added power of MariSilicon.

The Reno8 Pro+ and vanilla Reno8 will go on sale in China on June 1 (Wednesday), the Pro will have to wait until June 11. Now let’s take a quick look at the prices:

Oppo Reno8 2 500 CNY (371 $/347 €/28 800 ₹) 3 000 CNY (445 $/416 €/34 500 ₹)

We don’t yet have an overall price or even a launch window for the Reno8 series. Note that there is a model called “Reno8 Lite”, but it is a rebranded Reno7 Lite, so we don’t believe it’s a real member of the new series.

Speaking of the Reno7 series, this one didn’t (yet) have a Pro+ model. Also, the Reno7 Pro screen ran at 90Hz. Other than that, the old and new pros are comparable. Sure, the old model is slightly cheaper (it’s ₹37,750 on Amazon.fr), but is that enough to give up the upgraded screen and new chipset?

The OnePlus 10R, Ace, and Ace Racing Edition all share the Dimensity 8100-Max chipset. The 10R model costs ₹39,000 if you get the 5,000mAh/80W version. It has a screen and cameras comparable to the Reno8 Pro+. The Racing Edition replaces AMOLED with a 6.59-inch IPS LCD screen and has dropped its price to CNY 2,000. For comparison, the regular Ace (on which the 10R is based) starts at CNY 2,500.

There’s also the OnePlus Nord 2T and the vivo T2x, both powered by the Dimensity 1300. The Nord matches the Reno8 with a 6.43-inch 90Hz AMOLED display and retains the 8MP ultrawide camera. The vivo doesn’t, but it does offer a 6.58-inch 120Hz IPS LCD screen and a larger 6,000mAh battery (44W charging), which may be more to your liking. Sales of the Nord 2T started earlier this week at €400 for the 8/128 GB model. The vivo T2x will be launched on June 6.

What do you think of the Reno8 series? Did Oppo knock it out of the park or are you drawn to other mid-rangers?
