Oppo is set to unveil the first handset under its Reno sub-brand on the 10th of April at a launch event in China and 24th of April in Zurich, Switzerland. Oppo Reno has become one of the most talked about smartphone due to a 10x lossless zoom feature.
The camera on the new Reno handset is easily its standout feature.

The flagship Reno handset with the 10x Zoom will run on the Snapdragon 855 SoC, while the Snapdragon 710 chipset could power a 'Lite' edition of the phone. The new Reno smartphones will also support VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology and run on Color OS 6 based on Android Pie.Oppo will announce the flagship Reno handset in three variants –
