Smartphone manufacturers are constantly coming up with new innovations in an attempt to keep the industry afloat. In a time where more and more people are holding on to their phones rather than upgrading them at a frequent timeframe, new and exhilarating changes are key to get people to upgrade their devices. It’s fair to say that Chinese OEMs have been leading the industry for the past couple of years in terms of innovation. The recently launched OPPO Reno Ace has surely turned a lot of heads in the industry with its 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge.
OPPO Reno Ace Overview
With its industry-leading 65W charging, the 4000 mAh battery on the phone can fully charge in under 30 minutes. That’s incredibly impressive! While VIVO’s 120W SuperFlash Charge is yet to see the light of day in the market, the Reno Ace is all the buzz right now.
The phone isn’t lackluster in other important aspects either. It boasts the latest Snapdragon 855+ chipset paired with either 8 or 12GB of RAM alongside 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. It has a gorgeous design as well. The Reno Ace stands tall with a 6.5-inch AMOLED FHD+ (1080 x 2400) display. Additionally, it’s a 90Hz panel which guarantees a better display experience.
OPPO phones are known for their cameras. The Reno Ace has a quad-camera setup on the back with a 48MP f/1.7 Sony IMX586 sensor, a 13MP telephoto lens, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 2MP monochrome sensor. OPPO has adopted a waterdrop notch to house the 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera rather than a pop-up mechanism.
