Why, what do we know? Oppo has released not one, but two Renos recently. The first was the Oppo Reno Ace and the second is kind of a follow up to the original Reno called Reno 2.

Not the Oppo Reno 10x, though. Like the original Reno, it has the pivoting pop-up selfie camera and thanks to its edge-to-edge display, it does feature quite a few under display technologies, like under-display fingerprint sensor, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor.

It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G Mobile Platform with octacore processor and Adreno 618 GPU. It has only one RAM and storage option, and that is 8 GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128 GB UFS 2.1 storage. Not too shabby if you ask me.

The display is of 6.5-inch FHD+ (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) AMOLED display with TÜV Rheinland Full Care Display Certification, protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

The main shooter is an OIS and EIS-enabled quad-camera setup comprising of a 48 MP main camera (Sony IMX586), a 13 MP telephoto camera, a 8 MP ultra wide angle (116-degree) camera and a 2 MP monochrome camera).

As for the front, it is a 16 MP beauty selfie camera on a pivoting pop-up unit that deploys in just 0.8 seconds. It is not clear if this is rigged to the accelerometer for fall protection like the Oppo Reno 10x or not.

The device is kept juiced by a 4,000 mAh battery that supports SuperVOOC 3.0. Another standout feature is its “upgraded” triple heat dissipation system which includes thermal gel, a 3-layer graphite and copper tube liquid cooling.

The cooling hardware works in conjunction with the AI and software to ensure the device maintains its cool however you pushed it.

The rest of the specs are pretty rudimentary and it includes the likes of Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C interface, the suited of location services (GPS, A-GPS, Beidou and whatnot) et cetera, and yes, it has a headphone jack.

Out of the box, Oppo Reno 2 runs on Android 9-based ColorOS 6.

Oppo Reno 2 Smartphone can be had, in China, obviously, for 2,999 yuan (around US$424). Oppo Reno 2 will be launched in EU on October 2019 for an yet to be announced price.
