Oppo’s new mid-range phone has now launched globally with some changes. The Oppo Reno 4 Pro brings important upgrades over its predecessor, the Reno 3 Pro, with the superior processor, screen, camera, and battery. However, the global variant shouldn’t be confused with the Chinese variant of Reno 4 Pro as it has some major differences.
To start off, the Reno 4 Pro’s global variant offers a vivid 90Hz AMOLED panel, has Snapdragon 720G chipset, 48MP main shooter, and 65W fast charging. Let’s get into the detail alongside with its price.
The phone sports a 6.5-inch E3 Super AMOLED panel with 1080 x 2400 pixel resolution. The refresh rate of it hits at 90Hz with 180Hz touch sampling rate, and it’really bright — it has a peak brightness of 1,100 nits, which is ridiculous. Underneath the display, we have a fingerprint scanner, plus the Dolby Atmos certification is a great companion for its screen.
While most of the manufacturers are shying away from the curved screen, Oppo here has put a 55.9-degree curved screen. This, however, cut down the bezel to minimal and helps achieve a 92% screen-to-body ratio.
The back sees some major changes — the phone axes out the 2x telephoto camera, which was seen on both the Reno 3 Pro and the Chinese version of the Reno 4 Pro. Instead, it gets a 2MP B&W sensor to make it up to four cameras.
Similarly, the main camera has a 48MP 1/2″ Sony IMX586 sensor, unlike the Reno 3 Pro’s larger 64MP 1/1.72″ sensor. Regardless, both the back and the 32MP front camera have dedicated night modes, electronic video stabilization, and some portrait modes to start with.
Coming back to the rear camera, it can produce some great images in dark lighting conditions, even at 1 lux ambient light. On the video front, the phone has Ultra Steady Video stabilization both on the main and ultra-wide sensor. The ultra-wide camera has an 8MP sensor, by the way. The remaining one is a 2MP macro lens.
One of the major talking points of this Reno 4 Pro will perhaps be the Snapdragon 720G chipset, but possibly not in a good way. Oppo says that in comparison to the Helio P95 chipset seen on the Reno 3 Pro, the 8nm chipset on this has 46% higher single-core and 22% higher multi-core performance (as per Geekbench scores), also the GPU is 40% faster as per GFXBench Manhattan.
However, the chipset is surely not as powerful as the Snapdragon 765G that powers the Chinese variant of Reno 4 Pro.
The chipset is coupled up with 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of onboard storage. The phone also has a new cooling system that has a graphite tube, a graphite sheet, and copper foil combined.
The Oppo Reno 4 Pro has 4,000mAh battery with SuperVOOC 2.0, which can charge up to 65W — this should fully charge the phone in just 36 minutes. Oppo claims that this system is safe with TUV certification and multi-layer protection.
As for the price, the Oppo Reno 4 Pro price in India starts at INR 34,990 for the 8GB/128GB version. The phone will be available from August 5 via Amazon and Flipkart in Starry Night and Silky White color options.
