Announcement. OPPO Reno8 4G - bah, it's just OPPO Reno7 4G in a different color!

In Indonesia, a smartphone called OPPO Reno8 appeared on sale a couple of days ago, which I will call OPPO Reno8 4G on our website for clarity.

As has long been a tradition, nothing specialthere is nothing new in the device. Because it is almost an exact copy of the OPPO Reno7 4G sold in the same place in Indonesia. Slightly different dimensions, but one of the colors is different. Everything. The rest of the devices are identical.

Another “twin” of this couple is the OPPO F21 Pro 4G sold in India (only it does not have an NFC module).

Briefly about the characteristics.

The weak link is the chipset.Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 has never reached three hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. Still not bad, but still against the background of other characteristics of the smartphone, this chip looks dull.

But there is a lot of memory. 8 GB of operational and as much as 256 GB of permanent. And there is even support for memory cards.

AMOLED screen with slightly increased refresh rate up to 90 Hz. Diagonal 6.43″ (100 cm²), high resolution 1080×2400 (409 ppi).

The battery is about the same as everyone else, 4500 mAh. Charging speed - 33 W.

Cameras. Oddly enough, the most interesting camera here is the front one. 32 MP based on Sony IMX709 sensor. They say that excellent cameras are obtained from this sensor. It's the front ones.

The rear trio is quite modest, 64 + 2 + 2 MP -main camera, macro and depth sensor. Macro, by the way, some unusual. They promise 30X magnification. And f / 3.3 aperture is not often seen. But there is no autofocus, the resolution is modest. It is hardly worth dreaming too much.

The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen. NFC module is available.

Colors. Well, black is boring. But the second, which is called "Dawn Gold" - it looks curious.

And about the price. 4999000 Indonesian rupees (₽20500, $337) at the start of sales.
