Oppo has given its users an alternative to the full-screen smartphone ‘Oppo Reno 10x zoom’ with a pop-up camera. Oppo has thought it through that it not everyone that likes the idea of a mechanized selfie camera and people are often afraid of its breakdown, so it launched another model; Oppo Reno Z.
OPPO RENO Z DESIGN AND DISPLAY
Oppo Reno Z has almost the same design specifications with the Reno 10x zoom but in a different color style. The Oppo Reno Z is coming in coming in Aurora Purple and Jet Black with a 3D sleek body design just like the Reno 10x zoom.
Oppo Reno Z features a 6.4’’ inches AMOLED waterdrop display to avoid the pop-up camera, an 88% screen to body ratio, eye protection by TUV Rheinland and the display is protected using a corning Gorilla glass 5.
Below is a gallery that shows the Oppo Reno Z design and display
OPPO RENO Z CAMERA
Oppo Reno Z sports a Sony IMX 586 48MP primary lens with f/1.7 aperture which is capable of letting in more light into the imaging lens to produce a more detailed shot. And it has a 4-1 resolution focus technology which helps focus or grab objects more quickly, the ability to shoot a 4K video @30fps, 1080p HD video shooting @30fps/60fps, plus its Electronic image stabilization for video shooting only works when shooting video on 1080p and 720p and there is a slow-motion video feature when shooting on 1080p @120fps, 720p @240fps.
The camera is accompanied by a secondary 5MP camera lens with f/2.0 aperture which is for depth sensing. Oppo Reno Z is equipped with a 32MP front camera encapsulated in the waterdrop notch with f/2.0 aperture.
Both the rear and the front lens performed a fine job both in the day and night with the Ultra night-mode feature supported by AI low light shot and backlit selfie.
The portrait comes with an extra feature, the lighting effect. Users get up to 5 stylish bokeh setting to choose from and according to Oppo “based on in-depth study and analysis, these styles’ bokeh intensity, color, and lighting settings have been fine-tuned to match a wide range of tastes.”
They added by saying “We also added HSL technology to automatically balance and restore facial tones for a sharper picture and optimized toning effect” which I find awesome.
OPPO RENO Z PERFORMANCE
Oppo Reno Z is equipped with MTK Helio P90 octa-core processor clocked at the speed of 2.2GHz, with PowerVR GM9446 GPU.
The Helio P90 is the newest chipset from MediaTek and you can check here for what it can do and how it differs from Helio P70.
The processor is, of course, better than some Qualcomm mid-range chip and its AI-oriented. Oppo Reno Z is paired with an 8GB/6GB of RAM as a back up to the chip to make operation faster and a 128GB/256GB internal memory which cannot be expanded.
Oppo Reno Z runs on ColorOS 6 based on Android 9.0 Pie. The devices house a 4,035mAh battery capacity which is a big one, plus a fast-charging technology (VOOC 3.0) which uses a VFC flash charge algorithm.
There is game boost optimizer 2.0 and according to post found on their website, “The frame boost system can analyze the Oppo Reno Z mobile performance status in real-time while gaming and whenever it predicts lags, it adjusts the user frame rate and stability to prioritize a first-class gaming experience.”
Other features in the game boost 2.0 are
- Touch boost
- Game space for notifications
OPPO RENO Z OTHER SPECS
Oppo Reno Z supports 2G/3G/4G LTE. There is also Bluetooth v5.0 equipped on the device with GPS, NFC, USB Type-C 1.0 reversible connector and 3.5mm headphone jack port.
There is a new style fingerprint sensor which is the in-display featured on Tecno Phantom 9 too and many other smartphones in 2019, other sensors include; gyroscope, proximity sensor, compass, and accelerometer.
We have a sound technology system; the Dolby Atmos stereo speakers which are a good one. The device uses the phones receiver as the second speaker to achieve a stereo effect while it uses the Dolby Atmos to produce a cinematic sound quality.
OPPO RENO Z PRICE IN NIGERIA
The device is a cool device from Oppo with design to great performance but the only thing I find disturbing is the inability to extend storage to further have more space. I would have preferred a 64GB version that can be expanded up to 512GB instead. Oppo Reno Z ships out for approximately 134,000 Naira in Nigeria.
