OPPO Reno: Rise of the shark fin!

The world’s first phone with a shark fin-shaped rising camera is here.

Of all the parts on a smartphone, it is the camera that has been the favourite of global R&D teams. From VGA cameras to smart cameras to triple cameras to telephoto cameras, the mobile phone today is a photography device which also makes calls! The next stage of innovation saw manufacturers hiding the camera beneath the screen, occasionally placing the module in the bottom of the screen, making you hold your phone upside down to click a selfie.

2019 saw the rise of the pop-up or rising camera, where the front camera module slides out from inside the device. After testing the waters with a rising camera in one of its recent models, Oppo has taken things a step further by launching the Reno 10x Zoom -- the world's first smartphone with a 16MP shark fin rising camera. Unlike the regular rising camera, the Reno selfie camera emerges like a shark fin, ensuring clockwork operation for more than 5 years.

The Reno 10x zoom has other enhancements for better image performance. The device comes with a triple rear camera setup -- 48MP + 8MP (wide angle) + 13MP (telephoto), which supports features like 10x hybrid zoom, dual optical image stabilization, an ultra night mode and 4K video. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor which has separate modes called GameBoost, SystemBoost, and AppBoost. The system boost optimizes app operation speed and ensures optimum resource allocation. For gamers, the device has multiple tricks to manage the temperature of the device.

Powered by a 4065 mAh battery, the Reno 10x Zoom offers Oppo standard fixtures like VOOC charge, fingerprint sensor, AI-driven power management and India-specific innovations. If you wish to own a flagship that prides itself on disruptive design and good camera performance, the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom is an excellent buy at its price of Rs 39,990 (6GB + 128GB) and Rs 49,990 (8GB + 256GB).
