This might come as exaggeration to some but there is not a single thing exaggerated in a statement that says that the Oppo Reno Ace will charge itself in 5 minutes enough to last for 2 hours. The Reno range of flagship phones has increasingly diversified features that make it stand out of crowd, most of which are very similar to the premium OnePlus’ new 7T.
According to sources, the phone has the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, a 20:9 6.5″ 1080 pixel display along with a small waterdrop notch, the Reno 10x Zoom and a 90Hz refresh rate OLED panel. None the less, Oppo is popularly known for its camera system which in this case, is built around Sony’s ubiquitous 48-megapixel IMX586 sensor. It comes with up to 12 GB of RAM, notch-less display, periscope telephoto lens, and “shark fin” pop-up selfie camera.
The fast charging of the mobile is what it is talked about the most. Oppo was already above all of the others in the context of charging speed with its Lamborghini-edition Find X but the Reno Ace featured with 65W SuperVOOC has notched that up further. With a battery capacity of 4,000mAh, it can be charged from 0 to 100% in 30 minutes. This is what Oppo claims. This again means that one can use the phone for 2 hours with just 5 minutes of charging.
Oppo also says the Reno Ace’s 65W charger is the smallest on the market and the credit goes to GaN technology.
According to tests, the phone charges to around 48% in nearly 10 minutes which is almost half of the battery and in less than the time it should take. Talking about the screen refresh rate, it is also the fastest with 90Hz refresh rate OLED panel which is only seen the latest OnesPlus model yet.
Reno Ace support both Qualcomm’s Quick Charge at 18W and USB-C Power Delivery which means that there will be no problem even when you do not have the Oppo’s proprietary charger and cable. It is again good news that Google now made a compulsory standard fast-charge tech for all Android phones.
The Oppo Reno Ace is launching first in China for 2,999 yuan (~$420) for the 8 GB ram model and for 3,799 yuan (~$530) for 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage model. The Reno also has another special edition with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage for 3,599 yuan ($505) which seems like the best of both.
There is a headphone jack too which is soon starting to disappear from the latest launching phones which gives the Reno model an edge over the others with other specification being fairly satisfying.
