Oppo Reno 10X Zoom will be launched in Kenya on Monday, July 22. The launch event will be held at the Ole Sereni Hotel, Mombasa Road from 10.30am. This comes a few weeks after it was launched in other parts of the world.
This phone is a high-mid range device with lost of attractive features, including a cutting-edge chipset, pop-up selfie camera, and powerful back camera set-up. Reno 10X Zoom is widely seen as a rival to Huawei P30 Pro.
The Reno 10X is certainly a big smartphone. The body is 162mm by 77.2mm by 9.3mm. It is no doubt one of the thickest devices. Its also one of the heaviest devices, weighing in at 215g. The big body comes with big features – we will get into the features in the next section of this article.
This mobile phone features a 6.6-inch display – this makes it one of the phones with the biggest displays in its class. It has a pop-up front camera, which means there is no notch. The display is AMOLED and has a resolution poof 1080 pixels x 2340 pixels and 387 pixels density. This should offer a great viewing experience.
It is equipped with a 4065mAh battery and supports VOOC flash charge (20W fast charging).
Oppo Reno 10X Zoom has a triple-lens camera at the back. It consists of a 48MP f/1.7 main camera paired with an 8MP ultra[u1] -wide lens and a 13MP periscope lens that facilitates optical zoom. This camera supports 5x optical zoom (only) via the periscope lens. However, it has 60x digital zoom, which is the highest level of zoom I have witnessed in any phone, beating Huawei P30 Pro’s 50x zoom. The front camera is 16MP and it’s housed in a “shark fin” pop-up mechanism.
Reno 10X Zoom runs Android 9 Pie out of the box with ColorOS on top. It is powered by Snapdragon 855 processor paired with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM.
Muthoni Wachira, Oppo Kenya’s PR and Communications Manager, said the phone is tailored for youths who are dream chasers – those who want to “create new trends”.
