Oppo unveiled its Oppo Reno 4 Pro smartphone today, and seriously, it's one of the most gorgeous looking midrange devices with a flagship price tag. Reno 4 Pro sports a premium design and has a soft touch gradient pattern running towards the back. The gradient hue is subtle and refreshing, and the matt finish provides better in-hand feel and makes the device non-slippery, but the back panel and frame are still made up of plastic. Nevertheless, Oppo Reno 4 Pro is one of the beautifully crafted devices available in the market as of now.
Oppo Reno 4 Pro packs in a 6.5" FHD+ Curved AMOLED display with 90 Hz refresh rate and 180 Hz touch sampling rate. Oppo is calling this curved display as a 3D Borderless sense screen, and it is covered by Corning's Gorilla Glass 5. The smartphone covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum and comes with HDR support.
The smartphone boasts a quad-camera setup, and the primary camera here is a 48 MP Sony IMX 586 sensor with f/1.7 aperture. The secondary camera is an 8 MP ultra-wide lens with 119 degrees FOV. The final two cameras are 2 MP macro sensor and 2 MP monochrome sensor for better portrait shots. The primary camera can shoot videos at up to 4K 30 fps and comes with support for EIS. Oppo has also included a bunch of cool camera filters like AI color portraits and also included smart 960 fps slow-motion video recording feature. To the front, the tiny punch hole at the top left corner houses a 32 MP front-facing shooter.
Reno 4 Pro is fueled by a 4000 mAh battery, and Oppo has thrown in a 65W fast charger in the box for rapid top-ups. The device can go from 0 to 100% within 36 minutes, and the device charges via a Type-C port at the bottom. Despite sporting a fairly decent 4000 mAh battery, Oppo has managed to maintain the weight and thickness of the device at 161 grams and 7.7 mm, respectively.
Internally, Oppo Reno 4 Pro is powered by midrange Snapdragon 720G processor, and the graphics department is taken care of by Adreno 618 GPU. Honestly, the processor is the weakest link in the Oppo Reno 4 Pro. The Snapdragon 720G is still a decent processor as seen in the likes of Redmi Note 9 Pro and Realme 6 Pro, but the processor has aged quite a bit, and it may struggle a bit during your intense gaming sessions. In day to day tasks, the Snapdragon 720G, coupled with that 90 Hz screen, will provide a much smoother user experience.
On the software set of things, the smartphone runs on Color OS 7.2 based on Android 10. Interestingly, Reno 4 Pro retains a headphone jack and a dedicated Micro SD card slot for further storage expansion. The smartphone is available in sole 8GB+128GB configuration, and it is priced at Rs.34,990. The smartphone is available in major online and offline stores starting August 5th, in Starry Black and Silk White color options. Oppo also has a bunch of pre-book offers which you can view by clicking here. Image credits: Oppo
