Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Review – Specs, Features and Price

Here comes the complete review of the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom which was announced alongside the Oppo Reno, and 10x Zoom 5G. Oppo seems to take the Oppo Reno further with the introduction of Oppo Reno 10x Zoom. The smartphone was announced in April and will be released in June. The smartphone happens to arrive with some impressive specs and intriguing features.

For most people, one of the things that seem to be the center of attraction is the smartphone’s notch-less display. The smartphone boost of a 93.1% screen-to-body ratio and this was made possible as a result of the ‘shark-fin’ pop-up selfie camera, which emerges from the top of the smartphone whenever you want to take a selfie.

There are lots of other interesting features and specification that the new device comes in with. Just stick with us as we journey through the smartphone.

Design

The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom is one of the smartphones we admire so much, not just because of the notch-less display, but because of the overall premium look it drives in with.

The new device was built with an Aluminum frame, with Gorilla Glass 6 on the front, and Gorilla Glass 5 back. The smartphone maintains a sleek design which makes it easier to handle the device.

Carrying the phone around wouldn’t be an issue as the smartphone weighs 210g, and has a body dimension of 162×77.2×9.3mm. The smartphone is offered in just two color options which are the Ocean Green and Jet Black color.

The screen happens to be one of the main gists of the new smartphone. The screen is a 6.6-inch AMOLED display which boasts of a 93.1% screen-to-body ratio. The impressive screen-to-body ratio was made attainable as a result of notch-less display and ultra-thin bezels. Just like the Oppo Reno, this smartphone also features an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The outstanding part of the 10x Zoom design is the ‘shark fin’ pop-up which comes out from the top of the smartphone and houses the selfie camera, LED flash, and speaker grill. Unlike the original Oppo Reno, the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom selfie camera does not double as Face Unlock. The 3.5mm headphone jack was absent from the smartphone.

On the back of the smartphone is a slightly rippled rear which creates an astonishing light pattern. Still, on the back of the smartphone, you will find the vertically positioned triple cameras which sit at the center of the device. Besides the primary camera setup lies the LED flash.

Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Camera

The center of attraction on the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom is actually its cameras and display. Despite being tagged Oppo Reno 10x Zoom, the smartphone actually capable of digitally zooming up to 20x, but the name suggest about how far the smartphone can zoom while still retaining the image quality.

The 10x Zoom is better in a well-lighted environment, but in low light conditions, it seems a little grainy.

The triple primary cameras on the back of the smartphone use the Sony-made 48MP sensor for the main sensor. Meanwhile, the remaining two consist of a 13MP telephoto lens with an f/3.0 aperture, OIS. The third sensor is an 8MP ultra-wide lens with an f/2.2 aperture.

The ultra-wide mode comes with an impressive 120-degree field-of-view which was quite amazing though not the something like we have not seen before. You will also find the Night Sight mode feature on the new smartphone.

Performance

To begin with, the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom uses their own ColorOS 6 which is based on the Android 9.0 (Pie). The ColorOS features a simple interface and is totally original unlike before when Oppo usually clone the iOS.

The new smartphone uses the Qualcomm SDM855 Snapdragon 855 (7 nm), which is based on 7nm Octa-core (1×2.84 GHz Kryo 485 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 485). Still, in the smartphone, there is the Adreno 640 GPU which handles the gaming and graphics.

Despite the ColorOS being smooth and easy to use, it still lacks most of those vital short cuts like double tap to wake and more.

The smartphone arrives in different variants, we have the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. The second is a 6GB RAM with 256GB, meanwhile, the biggest version is an 8GB RAM with 256GB. The storage can be further expanded up to 256 GB via microSD card (uses shared SIM slot).
