Oppo's first 5G-capable handset brings a new level of zoom to smartphone cameras, along with plenty of power.
Oppo announced the Oppo Reno 5G at Swisscom's 5G launch event on 11 April 2019. The Reno 5G represents the Chinese company's first 5G-powered smartphone, but that's not its only standout feature. Oppo has equipped it with a triple-lens camera capable of 10x zoom – a first in the mobile space.
- Notchless display
- Range of colour variants
- Triple rear cameras
- 10x optical zoom
- Pop-up selfie camera
- Snapdragon 855
- ColorOS 6
- 4,065mAh battery
- VOOC 3.0 fast-charging
- Oppo's first 5G phone could be a real contender, especially if the price is right.
Pricing and availability
- Conversion from international pricing for the Oppo Reno 5G works out at around AUD$1,400.
- Official local pricing is still to be confirmed, however.
- It's expected to be available with Telstra and Optus.
Oppo is set to launch the Reno 5G in Switzerland in May 2019. International availability has yet to be announced, and it could be some time before we see the Oppo Reno 5G in Australia.
Oppo hyped up its "first" 5G phone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and at that event it announced that both Telstra and Optus would sell an Oppo 5G phone.
It's not yet confirmed if that is indeed the Reno, or possibly another handset, but there's clearly stiff competition for available 5G models right now. Of note, the Oppo 5G phone as presented at MWC 2019 was Optus's first announced 5G handset.
