Oppo’s Reno 4 Pro is all set for a global release. It is a mid-range device that does not differ a lot from One Plus’ latest arrival Nord in terms of specifications, design, and cost.
The back panel of the Reno 4 Pro comes with a matte finish. The panel is also equipped with a quad-camera with a gradient design for its bump along with a shiny finish. The device is not at all heavy as it is 7.7mm thick and weighs about 161g. A text that reads “INNOVATIVE QUADCAM,” all in caps, is imbibed on the camera bump, which might look awkward to a few users. Barring this part, the device indeed looks lovely.
The frontal portion of the device also looks nice. The device consists of an AMOLED display measuring 6.5 inches in size. It comes with a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels. It has a refresh rate of about 90Hz along with a touch sampling rate of about 180 Hz. The resolution is super bright, and the peak is attained at 1100 nits.
The phone is slightly curved at the edges to about 55.9 degrees. Compared to other display screens, the panel does not go right up to the bezel edge, which could be either advantageous or disadvantageous for the user, depending on his outlook. The screen to body ratio is about 92%.
The screen is also equipped with a fingerprint reader. The phone has been attested to allow the content of about 1080p to be streamed into it from Netflix. It also supports Dolby Atmos when booted.
The device comes with a Snapdragon 720G processor, whereas Nord comes with a 765G processor. It comes with an internal storage capacity of 128GB and with a memory space of 8GB of RAM. Reno 4 Pro’s battery is 4000mAh, which is compatible with SuperVOOC 2.0. It would support flash charging, which would enable complete charging of the battery in 36 minutes when charged over a USB charging point.
The time taken here for charging is a little on the higher side when compared to the charging feature on other Oppo devices. However, it is faster when compared to devices manufactured by various other firms. Undoubtedly, the phone does not support wireless charging.
The camera structure includes a 48-megapixel main sensor and a 32-megapixel selfie camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. Another important attribute of the camera is the black-and-white mode that focuses on people and individual colors. The black-and-white effect, when applied, looks great.
The Reno 4 Pro would be a part of various markets. In India, the lone model of 8GB/128GB is expected to launch on August 5th. It would be coming for $470. OnePlus Nord might turn out to be a tough competitor for Reno 4 Pro because it dominates the Indian market. Moreover, the OnePlus Nord model with the same specifications (8GB/120GB) comes at $375. Moreover, the processor of this model is faster compared to that of Reno 4 Pro.
