OPPO brings the Reno4 Pro 5G, Reno4 5G, and Reno4 Z 5G to the UK
OPPO recently launched its Reno4 lineup as part of its Reno series, which launches roughly twice a year. And these devices offer a pretty good value, all things considered. But since the launch of the OPPO Reno3 lineup, they’ve been taking a (sort of) different approach to the way they launch devices globally. The phone that launched as the Reno3 Pro in India and other markets, for example, is way different than the one that launched as the Reno3 Pro in China. That device launched as the Find X2 Neo globally. A similar thing happened with the Reno4 in how the Pro variant launched in India with a Snapdragon 720G and quad rear cameras. Now, though, the same Reno4 phones that launched in China earlier this year are launching in the UK as the Reno4 Pro 5G and the Reno4 5G, as well as the newer Reno4 Z 5G.
Both 5G versions of the Reno4 Pro and the Reno4 are identical to the devices that launched in China earlier. That means that the quad rear camera setup in the Reno4 Pro is replaced for a triple one instead, and the Snapdragon 720G is replaced for the more powerful, and 5G capable, Snapdragon 765G. Of course, these devices’ headlining feature is 5G, and 5G needs an SoC that’s up for the task. Otherwise, though, the phones are pretty similar: The Pro variant has a curved 90Hz display, the regular variant has a flat 60Hz one, and both of them have hole-punch panels.
The Reno4 Z 5G, though, was actually just announced in China a couple of days back, and it’s actually just a rebrand of the OPPO A92s. It comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 800 processor which is also 5G-capable, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, a different design language (with a square camera bump), and, the fastest refreshing display of the bunch at 120Hz (though it has an LCD instead of an AMOLED panel like the other two). It does come with a few downsides, though: Whereas the Reno4 Pro and the Reno4 feature 65W SuperVOOC 2.0, the Reno4 Z has a more conventional 18W charger.
Both the Reno4 and Reno4 Pro 5G are running Android 10 with ColorOS 7.2 out of the box, while the Reno4 Z 5G is running Android 10-based ColorOS 7.1. These devices will be among the first in line to get ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 when it rolls out more widely.
