The OPPO Reno Ace2 has been in the pipelines for a while now. OPPO VP Brian Shen had revealed last month that the next Ace-branded phone will debut in April. His latest Weibo post reveals that the OPPO Ace2 will launch on April 13th. The highlights of the Ace2 include a superior display with a higher refresh rate and touch sampling rate. Since OPPO had launched OPPO Reno Ace in October last year, the rumour mill had speculated that its successor could be called Reno Ace2. However, new reports have revealed that the Chinese manufacturer has removed the “Reno” from its name. OPPO is reportedly positioning the Ace2 as a premium gaming-focused smartphone to take on the likes of Vivo’s iQOO 3.
OPPO Ace2 specifications and features
The OPPO Ace2 with model number PDHM00 was spotted on TENAA and 3C certification recently, revealing quite a bit about the phone’s specs. According to the listings, the OPPO Ace2 sports a 6.5-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 20:9. The punch-hole display is integrated with a fingerprint sensor. The handset is powered by a 2.8GHz octa-core chipset, likely the Snapdragon 865, with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage.
The quad-camera setup comprises a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel lens, and two 2-megapixel sensors. While the 8-megapixel lens could be for wide-angle photography, the two 2-megapixel sensors are likely for depth and macro photography. The handset features a 16-megapixel selfie sensor at the front.
The OPPO Ace2 draws power from a 1,955mAh battery with 65W fast charging support and 40W wireless charging capabilities. The phone will arrive with support for 40W fast wireless charging. The device runs the Android 10-based ColorOS 7 out-of-the-box.
