Finally, just as rumored, OPPO Reno 7 series which was launched back in November in China has now arrived in India while also being on its way to other regions across the globe.
The main flagship is the OPPO Reno 7 Pro with a big 50MP IMX766 main sensor and then a base model, the original OPPO Reno 7. The new international variant will be slightly different from its Chinese counterpart in many ways including its size as well as the chipset powering it.
For the high-end model, the OPPO Reno 7 Pro is powered with a Dimensity 1200 Max chipset and has 5G capabilities with 12GB of RAM. According to the Chinese smartphone maker, the storage is said to be dynamic and can expand up to 7GB by using some of the 256GB internal storage to dump files that aren’t immediately used.
Being a powerful smartphone, it comes with a big 6.5-inch AMOLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and a hole punch at the top left corner where the device’s 32MP Sony IMX709 front-facing selfie camera is hidden.
Back to the camera specs that we mentioned earlier, it sports a big 50MP (1/1.56″) f/1.8S primary shooter and it’s shared with a high-flying Find X3 Pro. Then there is another 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro camera.
In the power department, you’ll get a 4,500mAh battery that offers support for 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging. OPPO Reno 7 series will run ColorOS 12 out of the box even though the user interface will be powered by the previous Android 11 OS.
Away from the OPPO Reno Pro and to the base model, you’ll get a Dimensioty 900 chipset for the global variant of the device even though the Chinese version got Snapdragon 778G.
It is still built on the 6nm node and has some of its high-performance cores running at 2.4 GHz. The phone will be sold in India with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.
The display of the OPPO Reno 7 is slightly smaller compared to the aforementioned model. At 6.43-inch, its technology is AMOLED and it supports a 180Hz touch sampling rate. The camera setup is very similar to that of the Chinese variant.
Since the phone is coming with a different chipset, Oppo had to make some internal rearrangements. The thickness has slightly increased to 7.8 mm, but the weight dropped by 12g to 173g, compared to the Chinese Reno7.
Another thing to keep in mind is the battery which even though remains at 4,500mAh, OPPO certified the Reno 7 for 65W SuperVOOC in India while the Chinese variant had 60W.
In terms of color options, the device is expected to come in Blue and Black and will be available for Indian consumers on Flipkart as well as the company’s official website and even some select offline stores.
The price for the base model will reportedly start at IN₹ 28,999 (US$3990) and the first sale is said to happen on Feb. 17th. While the price of the high-end OPPO Reno 7 Pro will be IN₹ 39,999 (US$535) and will be available in Blue and Black color options. Its arrival is slated for Feb. 8th.
Apart from the smartphones, OPPO also debuted its smartwatch, the OPPO Watch Free which is like a bridge between OPPO’s smart bands and smartwatches thanks to its larger 1.64-inch AMOLED display with long-lasting battery life (as promised by the company).
Price is said to start at IN₹ 5,999 (US$80).
OPPO Enco M32 neckband earphones also made it to the stage in a Green color option. Although the device is also listed on Amazon India for IN₹ 1,799 (less than US$25).
