At the end of August, complying with the established roadmap, OPPO presented the new Reno2 series composed of three models: OPPO Reno2, OPPO Reno2 F and OPPO Reno2 Z, all with four sensors on the back and 48 megapixels of maximum resolution.

Finally, the Chinese company has decided to bring two of these terminals to Europe, specifically the OPPO Reno2, which arrives to succeed the OPPO Reno, and the OPPO Reno2 Z, which does the same with the OPPO Reno Z. These two new phones share between yes the great majority of benefits, but they include different processor and some other difference.

Few but important differences in the cameras

Oppo Reno2 OPPO Reno2

The design of the new OPPO Reno2 is characterized by its peculiar fin-shaped mechanism to deploy the front camera, which has a resolution of 16 MP and an aperture of f / 2.0. In the OPPO Reno2 Z, we also have a 16 MP front camera with f / 2.0, but leaves the flap-shaped mechanism and emerges through a pop-up system (periscope type).

The rear camera of the Reno2 is composed of a main lens of 48 MP, a wide angle of 8 MP, a telephoto lens of 13 MP and another monochrome lens of 2 MP. In addition, using Fusion Imaging technology, it is capable of achieving a 5x hybrid zoom that can be stretch up to 20x digital zoom. The Reno2 Z mounts a camera with main sensor of 48 MP, wide angle of 8 MP, a monolens of 2 MP and a sensor of 2 MP to measure the depth.

In addition, OPPO has added in the two models a Night Photography mode, an Ultra Wide mode (with a field of vision of 119 ° in Reno2 Z and 116 ° in Reno2), an Ultra Macro mode (only in Reno2) and a Portrait mode with a bokeh effect that can also be applied to video.

Inside the OPPO Reno2, we have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G accompanied by 8 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 256 GB. In the case of OPPO Reno2 Z, however, OPPO has opted for MediaTek, specifically, the Helio P90 processor, along with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.
