Oppo is preparing to launch a new flagship sub-brand aiming the pro users and gamers. The upcoming Oppo Reno is said to feature a new 10x optical zoom using a periscope technology, 48MP triple camera, Snapdragon 710 or 855 CPU, and up to 12GB RAM.

The leaked pricing starts at $550 USD or P28,000 Philippine pesos before taxes for the 8GB/128GB model with unknown CPU (probably SD 710) while the Lamborghini and 5G versions with SD 855 could cost all the way up to $1000. The release date is expected to be around the end of April after its launch.

Another feature to expect is a notch-less all-screen AMOLED display with rumored 93% screen ratio, which is astounding given most recent punch hole phones have only ~90%.
