The Oppo Reno4 Pro India variant has a polycarbonate curved rear panel with a matte finish. The choice of plastic over glass makes Oppo Reno4 Pro one of the lightest smartphones in the market, weighing just 161 grams. What adds to the ergonomics is the 7.7mm thickness, making the Oppo Reno4 Pro a lot convenient to hold.

Upfront, there is a 6.5-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and an in-display fingerprint scanner. Oppo has pushed the bezels to the extreme, which has resulted in a smartphone with a high screen-to-body ratio of 92.1 percent.

The display on Oppo Reno4 Pro is very bright and the company claims that it is capable of hitting a peak brightness of 1,100 nits. We did not face any issue while using the phone, even in direct sunlight.

The screen, which comes with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5, is 55.9 degrees curved. It felt like a balance between offering an immersive viewing experience and also avoid accidental touches.

The punch-hole cutout on the upper left corner houses a 32MP front camera. In our brief test, the selfies clicked were sharp and colour accurate as well. Portrait mode is decent and the bokeh does not look artificial.

At the back, there is a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary lens + 8MP ultrawide lens + 2MP macro + 2MP monochrome sensor setup stacked vertically. The camera, apart from the basic features like the photo, video, portrait mode, comes with features like Ultra Clear 108MP mode, 960fps slow motion, Ultra Steady Video mode, etc.

Here are a couple of images shot on Oppo Reno4 Pro using the main sensor. The colours are mostly accurate and the highlights and shadows are well-exposed in daylight shots.

Oppo Reno4 Pro Normal mode vs Night mode. Notice how the algorithm manages to control the overblowing of highlights while exposing the shadows in Night mode. Some may also say the sharpness is slightly on the aggressive side.

Oppo Reno4 Pro gets powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. With that amount of RAM, multitasking and performing day-to-day activities on the phone would be a breeze.

We also played a couple of matches in the new Livik Map of PUBG Mobile. The game loaded in HD graphics and High frame rate. The choice of processor does not permit to play PUBG Mobile in Ultra or Extreme graphics. In our short gaming session, which lasted for about 30 minutes, we did not experience any lag and the phone too did not heat up. A more-powerful chip would have been better, especially considering the price. However, if you are into casual gaming, the Oppo Reno4 Pro is unlikely to disappoint you. We will share the chipset's performance details in our Oppo Reno4 Pro review.

Oppo Reno4 Pro has a 4,000 mAh battery that will last you a day on medium usage. The USP of this device is having support for 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging via a USB Type-C port that is sandwiched between the speaker grille and the 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom edge.

The company claims that the 65W fast charger packed inside the box can refuel the battery from zero to 100 in 36 minutes. During our brief testing, the smartphone charged completely in just 31 minutes, five minutes before the claimed time.
