With today’s announcement, Oppo makes official the latest replacement for the notch


The wedge is here. As the Oppo Reno is unveiled, we got to see the most recent attempt by a manufacturer to replace the notch. The final goal, of course, is to create a device for customers that carry a high-screen-to-body ratio. The wedge is motorized and contains the front-facing selfie camera and also the flash for each front and back camera. There are 2 versions of the device, that we get to in a moment.

The standard version of the Oppo Reno supports a 6.4-inch OLED display carrying a 1080p FHD+ resolution and is powered by Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform. The device carries 6GB or 8GB of memory. The microSD slot offers the maximum amount as 256GB of extra storage, and also the phone comes with a dual-camera setup (48MP + 5MP depth sensor) on back. A 5x hybrid zoom is also available. The selfie snapper that resides on the wedge weighs in at 16MP, and also the lights are kept on the 3765mAh battery that’s enclosed with the phone. The battery can be charged at 18W rapidly.

For those trying to find a wedge phone with higher-end specs, Oppo is offering Reno 10x Zoom Edition. The model features a 6.6-inch OLED panel with a 1080p FHD+ resolution and it is equipped with Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform below the hood. 6 or 8GB of memory is inside, and this comes with the same capability microSD slot as you can find on the standard model.

This version of the Reno supports a triple-camera setup (48MP primary + 8MP super wide-angle + 13MP periscopic zoom) that along offers 10x hybrid zoom and OSI. The 16MP front-facing selfie camera seems on the pop-up wedge. Speaking of the wedge, it permits the Reno to feature a screen-to-body-ratio of 93.1%. The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition comes with a large 4,065mAh battery, that uses VOOC 3.0 to charge 23.8% quicker than the previous version of the fast charging system. The phone additionally features an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The wedge has been designed to last over 5 years as long as you open it no more than a hundred times a day. And because of the sensor that is built into the phone, if the device should fall with the wedge open, the part will automatically close quickly. That is a feature that could be used for some other parts of the phone, as well as the screen, in the future.
