OPPO’s upcoming Reno 2 smartphone was recently spotted on the TENAA website, confirming some of its key features. The Reno 2 has now appeared on the Geekbench benchmark database, hinting at the presence of a Snapdragon 700-series chipset under the hood.
OPPO Reno 2 Likely to be Powered by a Snapdragon 730G Processor
The Geekbench listing tells us the upcoming OPPO Reno 2 will run on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset clocked at 1.8 GHz. Even though Geekbench has identified the chipset as being Snapdragon 675, the actual benchmark scores hint towards a newer and more powerful Snapdragon 700-series chip. In terms of memory, the Geekbench listing reveals the phone will include 8GB of RAM. On the software front, the Reno 2 will ship with the Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box.
According to reports, the OPPO Reno 2 is likely to pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730G processor, which powers phones like the Samsung Galaxy A80. The Reno 2 listing on the TENAA website, however, only revealed that the phone has an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz.
The Reno 2 will arrive with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display featuring 1080 x 2400 Full HD+ resolution and a tall 20:9 aspect ratio. Its biggest selling point will be the quad rear camera setup featuring a 48-megapixel primary sensor. The phone will also include a 13MP telephoto lens, 8MP ultra-wide snapper, and a 2MP depth sensor. While it won’t be as impressive as the flagship Reno 10x Zoom, the Reno 2 will include support for 5x hybrid zoom and 20x digital zoom. For selfies, the phone will feature a 16MP Shark fin camera, similar to the current Reno series phones. Keeping the lights on will be a large 4000mAh capacity battery with VOOC 3.0 fast charging support.
OPPO will be introducing the Reno 2 along with the Reno 2Z and Reno 2F smartphones at an event in India on August 28.
