Scheduled on April 10, 2019, the Reno smartphone, a brand new Chinese company Oppo, has received certification from the Singapore regulatory authority, the IMDA. The opportunity to learn a little more about its technical sheet reviewed downward.
On Monday, March 11, 2019, the leaders of the Asian firm Oppo announced with great fanfare the launch of a brand new brand: Reno. And to mark the coup, the company of the Middle Kingdom has given us an appointment on April 10, when the first smartphone stamped Reno will be the subject of an official presentation in China.
A technical sheet slightly revised downward
In addition to its colorful logo, the subsidiary Reno (to pronounce Riino) has already received the certification of its mobile device from the regulatory organization of Singapore, the IMDA, as we learn MySmartPrice. The latter thus got hold of the document in question, on which appears the Reno model number: CPH1917. Another document tells us a little more about its technical sheet.
If the leaders of the group implied the presence of a SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, the certification received tends to prove the opposite: the teams of the company would have preferred the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, engraved in 10nm. The screen would reach 6.4 inches in Full HD + quality. The 48-megapixel rear camera seems to be confirmed: next to it, a second 12 megapixel sensor would invite itself to the party.
A fleeing photo suggests the presence of a triple photo sensor
On the front of the phone, a 16-megapixel camera would take care of taking selfies. Nothing, however, confirms the x10 zoom, or the battery of 4065 mAh hitherto mentioned, or the 3.5 mm jack and USB-C port. The Reno could however run under the ColorOS 6.0 interface based on Android 9.0 Pie, and even support 5G connectivity. To be clear, there is more to wait until April 10.
In parallel with this certification, an alleged photo of the phone (photo of a) in question would have leaked on the Chinese social network Weibo, as we learn SlashLeaks. Image on which is drawn a photo module with three sensors: this is one more than the IMDA certification. To see if one of them does not correspond to the x10 zoom suggested by the high places of the mark. Still, these shots are to be taken with tweezers until the group has not officially published his own.
