The OPPO Reno4 may have just leaked with a camera design like the LG Velvet
Towards the end of last year, OPPO launched the Reno3 and Reno3 Pro in China. These new mid-range devices from the company featured MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000L and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G, respectively. However, the international variants of the devices that were launched earlier this year in March featured completely different specifications. Instead of the Dimensity 1000L chip, the OPPO Reno3 (global) packed in MediaTek’s Helio P90, while the Reno3 Pro (global) featured the Helio P95. The Chinese Reno3 Vitality Edition and Reno3 Pro, on the other hand, were recently launched as the Find X2 Lite and Find X2 Neo globally. Amid this confusion, OPPO has been working on the next-gen Reno smartphones and we now have our first look at the upcoming OPPO Reno4.
In a recent post on Chinese social media platform Weibo, renowned leakster Ice Universe has shared a leaked image of the OPPO Reno4. The image showcases the back panel of the OPPO Reno4, both in black and white color variants, featuring a quad-camera setup that looks quite a bit like the camera design we recently saw on the LG Velvet.
Three out of the four cameras on the device have been arranged vertically, with the fourth smaller camera module placed to the right of the third camera. Unlike the LG Velvet, however, the three main cameras on the OPPO Reno3 look to be of the same size, and upon careful inspection, you can also see a border around the cameras. The device also has an LED flash, which resides to the right of the topmost camera sensor.
It’s also worth noting that there’s a very high chance of this Reno4 live image being a fake. As Gizmochina points out, OEMs under the BBK Electronics umbrella are known to skip the number 4 for their devices as it’s considered a bad omen in China. Since OPPO is also a part of BBK Electronics and has previously never launched a smartphone with the number 4 in the name, we’d request you to take this leak with a rather large grain of salt.
