50MP camera and cooling with a steam chamber: OPPO Reno7 specifications revealed

The Chinese company OPPO is preparing to release its new smartphone, which will become part of the Reno series. The device, called Reno7, will replace the Reno6 series released at the beginning of the year, which has just reached the European market. Despite the fact that there is still a long time before the announcement of OPPO Reno7, insiders have already unveiled the technical specifications of the new smartphone. True, they did not specify which of the models these specifications belong to: the base OPPO Reno7 or the top-end Reno7 Pro. But judging by the declared parameters, we are talking about the successor to the OPPO Reno6, not the Reno6 Pro.

According to sources, the front of the new OPPO Reno7 will have a 6.5-inch AMOLED panel made by the Chinese firm BOE. It will support Full HD + resolution, image refresh rates up to 90Hz and 10-bit color. Inside the case, the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset will be hidden in combination with LPDDR4x RAM and a built-in USB 3.1 drive. Also, insiders said that for efficient heat dissipation, the new smartphone will have a liquid cooling system with a steam chamber.

In terms of cameras, OPPO will return the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor to the Reno7, which will act as the main camera. It will be accompanied by an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 camera with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel monochrome camera, aka a depth sensor for portraits. For selfies and video calls, there will be a front-facing camera embedded in the display with a 32-megapixel IMX615 sensor from Sony.

Autonomous operation of the new OPPO smartphone will be provided by a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh with support for fast wired charging with a capacity of 65 W via the USB Type-C port. Other features of the novelty include an NFC chip for contactless payment, stereo speakers and a linear motor for tactile feedback. All the stuffing will be wrapped in a body with a metal frame made of 6000 series aluminum alloy. It will be covered with a diamond-coated glass cover on the back, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass on the front.

OPPO Reno7 is expected to go on sale starting at 2999 Yuan, or about $ 466 for the version with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. A top-end version with 12 GB of RAM and a 256 GB drive will also be available, but its cost has not been disclosed.
