OPPO Reno 8 feature

Oppo Reno 8 Series was officially announced on May 23, 2022, in the Chinese market and is now launched in India. During the event in China, three phones were introduced: Reno 8, Reno 8 Pro, and Reno 8 Pro+, but only two phones have been introduced in India: Reno 8 and Reno 8 Pro. We can see minor changes in the Indian variant compared to the Chinese variant of the Reno 8 Series. In this post, we will be talking about the Reno 8, and for Reno 8 Pro, we have it covered separately. Let’s dig into the specs, features, availability, and the expected price of Oppo Reno 8 in Nepal.

OPPO Reno 8 Overview:

Comparing Reno 8 to the rest of the pro variants, we don’t see much difference besides Display, Chipset, and RAM options. Both Pro and non-Pro share the same camera modules and battery capacity.

Design and Display

Unlike the pro variants, vanilla Reno 8 features 6.4 inches AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and supports a 90Hz refresh rate. Whereas display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Above the screen is a left-aligned punch-hole cutout that holds the front-facing camera. There is an under-display fingerprint sensor for biometrics, which is present across all Reno 8 Series devices.

Performance and Memory

Under the hood, the vanilla 8 from the Reno 8-series is powered up with MediaTek Dimensity 1300 based on a 6nm manufacturing process. Coupled with the Mali-G77 MC9 GPU, this Octa-core processor can provide decent performance. But, if you are a power user, just go for the Pro variants.
