While we await new news on OPPO Find X series top-of-the-line smartphones, OPPO has Reno9 midrange line launched in China, which this year includes three devices. We are obviously talking about OPPO Reno9, Reno9 Pro and Reno9 Pro +, the latter halfway between the mid-range and the top of the range.
Starting from the technical sheet, all three Reno9 have a 6.7″ screen with fixed refresh rate at 120 Hz. The display reaches 8192 levels of brightness and guarantees the dimming natural so as not to strain the user’s eyes. Furthermore, the screen-to-edge ratio is the highest ever, thanks to a reduction on all three smartphones of the border of less than 2.32 millimeters, the all-time low of the Reno series.
In terms of chips, however, the differences will be felt: if Reno9 will be launched with a Snapdragon 778G, Reno9 Pro will adopt a completely opposite solution, switching to the Dimension 8100 MAX from MediaTek. Instead, we return to Qualcomm with Reno9 Pro+, which will have a Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 as its own SoC. The Reno9 will also be launched with 8 or 12 GB RAM and 256 or 512 GB storage, while the two higher-end devices will both feature 16 GB RAM and 256 or 512 GB storage.
camera side, Reno9 Pro and Pro+ will have a Sony IMX890 sensor 50 MP as its main lens, which will be accompanied by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor. The “base” model of the smartphone, on the other hand, will be satisfied with an unspecified 64 MP main lens and a 2 MP monochrome camera. All three devices, however, will share the same 32 MP selfie camera.
For now, however, the Reno9 series has been launched in China, while there is no news about its debut in western markets (also given the thorny issue of OPPO smartphone sales in Germany, blocked due to a dispute with Nokia). However, the prices of the three devices seem to be very attractive: in fact, we start from the equivalent in Yuan of 350 Euros for the 8/256 model of Reno9, and we reach 615 Euros for the 16/512 variant of Reno9 Pro+.
