Oppo Reno series to launch in India at 12 pm today: Where, how to watch the event live

The Oppo Reno series will be the company's flagship offering this year, replacing last year's Find X.

Oppo is finally set to launch its flagship series — the Reno series in India today at an event in New Delhi.

The Oppo Reno series so far comprises of four phones, namely, the Oppo Reno, the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition, the Reno 5G, and the budget-oriented Reno Z. What remains to be seen is which of these four models will be brought to India.

The reason why the Reno has generated a lot of hype so far is because of its unique side-swing pop-up camera and capable hardware for a price which certainly makes it appear more of an affordable flagship rather than a premium flagship.

As suggested by the tonnes of leaks we've had in the past, the standard Reno features a pop-up camera design where the entire top panel raises from the left to reveal the front-facing camera. Oppo is sticking to its philosophy of going notch-less with its premium flagship, as was the case with the Find X (review).

The Reno features a 6.4-inch OLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, an in-display fingerprint scanner, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, and a dual rear-camera setup. There's also 6 GB and 8 GB RAM options to choose from, the latter also offering more storage.

The phone gets a 48 MP primary camera at the back, along with a 5 MP secondary sensor. The primary 48 MP lens uses the Sony IMX586 sensor, which was a feature on the Honor View 20. Meanwhile, on the phone, you get a 16 MP camera.
