- Oppo has announced the global versions of the Reno 4 and Reno 4 Pro.
- Both phones are similar internally with minor differences in size and cameras.
- The Reno 4 Pro will launch in India in August for Rs. 34,990.
The Oppo Reno 4 and Reno 4 Pro global variants are now official. The two mid-range devices were launched alongside the Oppo Watch.
Donâ€™t draw any conclusions based on the â€œProâ€� suffix here. Both phones feature entries in the compromises column.
Oppo Reno 4 Pro and Reno 4: Specs
For one, the Pro is slightly smaller and lighter than the Reno 4, but sports a 6.5-inch 2,400 x 1,080 AMOLED display. That panel also gets the 90Hz refresh rate treatment too. The Reno 4 settles for a 6.4-inch 2,400 x 1,080 AMOLED but does get a flat display instead of the Pro modelâ€™s curved edges.
Internally, the Reno 4 Pro packs a 4,000mAh battery with 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging support. Oppo claims some brisk charging times of flat to 100% in under 40 minutes. The Reno 4 packs a slightly larger battery though at 4,015mAh which can be topped up using Oppoâ€™s 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 solution. Itâ€™s not what weâ€™d call slow but a far cry from the companyâ€™s other charging solutions.
As for imaging, the Reno 4 and Reno 4 Pro largely share the same camera array. Headlining on both is a 48MP Sony IMX586 snapper with OIS. Itâ€™s joined by an 8MP wide-angle sensor and a 2MP macro snapper. While the Reno 4 features a 2MP depth sensor, the Pro model sports a 2MP monochrome camera.
Up front, the Reno 4 has two selfie cameras mounted in a punch-hole, namely a 32MP snapper alongside a 2MP. The 32MP features as the only selfie camera on the Reno 4 Pro.
Internally, itâ€™s a case of spot the difference again between the two devices. Both phones sport the Snapdragon 720G chipset with 8GB of RAM and 12GB of storage. Buyers wouldâ€™ve probably wouldâ€™ve preferred if Oppo retained the Snapdragon 765G used in the Chinese version.
Both phones also feature some creature comforts, including an in-display fingerprint sensor, a headphone port, and a microSD card slot. Dual SIM slots are also present while ColorOS 7.2 running atop Android 10 is the operating system of choice for both models.
Oppo Reno 4 Pro and Reno 4: Price and availability
Indian buyers can snag the Oppo Reno 4 Pro 8GB/128GB model from August 5 for Rs. 34,990 (~$470). For what it offers, it may well be a tough sell in a country bursting with alternatives.
The Reno 4 Pro is also a fat premium over the Rs. 29,990 Reno Pro 3 which debuted with a Helio P90, 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, a 4,025mAh battery, and a 64MP primary shooter. Even the 256GB storage version can be had for less.
If youâ€™re looking for an adventurous colorway, youâ€™d be gravely disappointed. Oppoâ€™s offering the Pro in just two shades: Starry Night and Silky White.
Meanwhile, the vanilla Oppo Reno 4 is now listed for preorder on Oppo Thailandâ€™s site for the equivalent of around $385, but thereâ€™s no word on a broader release just yet.
