Oppo just announced the first three of the Reno5 family, and it is likely to be a large family. As we know? Well, there are a total of eight Reno4s in our database, and it is one of them that we will present to you today: the Reno4 Z 5G.
The most affordable of the 5G-enabled fourth-generation Renos, the Z 5G retails for € 300, that’s less than half the official asking price of the Reno4 Pro 5G and about two-thirds the price of the Oppo Reno4 5G.
The Oppo Reno4 Z 5G is powered by a Mediatek Dimensity 800 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 765G of the other two. Still, it’s not really a cause for concern – a close relative of that SoC, the 800U that we got to see recently, performed admirably. Another bit of moderate polarization could be the 6.57-inch LCD screen. OLED lovers may scoff at the choice of panel tech, but this one comes with a 120Hz refresh rate. Which brings us to the next point: a 4000 mAh battery with a 120 Hz LCD screen? It sounds a bit worrisome, but we’ll see.
Three suitable cameras and three types of cameras made their way to the Reno4 Z 5G. There’s a 48MP main unit on the back, joined by an 8MP ultra-wide, and then you get a 2MP macro module and a 2MP unit for depth sensing. Another one is to keep the 16MP selfie camera company in a pill-shaped cutout in the upper-left corner of the screen.
