- OPPO is reportedly working on the Reno 9 series of smartphones
- Images of the retail box have surfaced online
- OPPO Reno 9 series is expected to debut in November
OPPO Reno 9 series is nearing its launch. Chinese smartphone maker unveiled the Reno 8, Reno 8 Pro, and Reno 8 Pro+ in China earlier this year. These devices came equipped with the Dimensity 1300, Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, and Dimensity 8100 chipsets respectively. However, not all the devices made their way to India. OPPO launched the Reno 8 and 8 Pro in India. The Reno 8 Pro, which debuted in China as the world’s first Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 phone, was not released in other markets including India. Instead, the company rebranded the Reno 8 Pro+ as the Reno 8 Pro for markets outside China.
There is a lot of anticipation regarding the Reno 9 series. An earlier leak had hinted that Reno 9 family may also include three models, the Reno 9, Reno 9 Pro, and Reno 9 Pro+. Now, the retail box of the upcoming smartphone has leaked. The new leak is also courtesy of Digital Chat Station on Weibo.
The leaked images reveal a white-coloured retail box with the Reno branded at the top-left corner. It also features a massive ‘9’ embedded at the bottom-right corner of the box. Unfortunately, nothing specific can be seen in regard to the design in this latest leak.
OPPO Reno 9 series chipset, camera details (leaked)
The leaks suggest that one of the Reno 9 series phones will draw its power from Snapdragon 778G chipset. The phone is also expected to have a 64-megapixel main camera. The top variant of OPPO Reno 9 series is likely to have the MediaTek MT6895 chipset, which indicates it will have the Dimensity 8000-series chipset. So, it may feature either the Dimensity 8000 or 8100 chipset. This model will have a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 as the primary camera.
DCS did not share the marketing names of these two models. It appears that these devices may launch in the Chinese market as the Reno 9 Pro and Reno 9 Pro+. The initial leaks from the same tipster revealed that the smartphones of the Reno 9 family will house a 4,500mAh battery.
It is being said that the OPPO Reno series may debut in the China market in November. However, no concrete details regarding this have emerged so far.
