The presence of a dated Android Nougat OS on the device kind of takes a lot away, but the device is a pretty potent one and given that the company has always been swift enough to roll out updates, we can certainly hope to get an Oreo update on the device.

Oppo Find X looks great, but despite it’s looks, the skinned version of android used by Oppo also known as “coloros” is not appealing at all. This goes for all OEMs that lock down their devices so that we can’t enjoy the devices to their fullest potential. On the side note Vivo NEX’s back looks lot better than other devices in comparison.

Oppo Reno lineup to have 5 devices – Pro, Plus, Zoom, Lite, and Youth

Published

oppo reno

We got to know about the upcoming Oppo sub-brand Reno a couple of weeks ago. The Reno lineup of smartphones will be focused on youth as it will pack in punchy and vibrant colors at the back.

Now, courtesy of Letsgodigital, we have got intel on the various models in the lineup. As per the report, the lineup will have five devices (initially) – Reno Pro, Reno Plus, Reno Zoom, Reno Lite, and Reno Youth.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On March 20, 2019, Guangdong Oppo Mobile Telecommunications submitted the trademark applications to the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) and to the IPO (Intellectual Property Office UK). The trademarks are classified as Class 9, which includes smartphones. The names are Reno Pro, Reno Plus, Reno Zoom, Reno Lite, and finally Reno Youth.

The trademark was applied for by Domingo Galletero Company, a law firm in Alicante. This company has often acted in the name of Oppo, as the Spanish company also applied for brand name protection at the beginning of this year for the name Oppo Limn.

Oppo Reno Pro

Based on the name you can assume that the Pro model will be a top model. It was previously known that the Reno will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor, or this will apply to all models is still unknown. But this powerful chipset will probably be used for the Oppo Reno Pro. It also seems obvious that this phone will offer 5G support.

Oppo Reno Plus

The name Reno Plus can have several meanings. This may involve an extra large screen, extra memory or an extra large battery. This last option certainly does not seem unlikely, it has already been announced that the Reno will be equipped with a 4,800 mAh battery. Oppo’s fast charging technology, called SuperVOOC Flash Charge, will certainly not be missing.

Oppo Reno Zoom

It is obvious that the name Reno Zoom refers to the zoom function of the camera. Earlier this year Oppo announced to have a smartphone with 10x optical zoom in development. This phone was already demonstrated at MWC 2019 last month. It is a triple camera with image stabilization. The triple camera consists of a 48-megapixel main camera, an ultra wide-angle camera, and an 8-megapixel zoom camera.

Oppo Reno Youth

The name Youth does not leave much to the imagination. Young consumers are an important target group for innovative Oppo. The Reno Youth seems to be meant for that. What this will mean for the functionality is still unknown, but this will probably be one of the cheaper models.

Oppo Reno Lite

The name Reno Lite also reminds me of a cheaper smartphone model. It is possible that this smartphone will be provided with less powerful hardware, in order to be able to offer an affordable device for every consumer.

The will run on the Android 9.0 operating system in combination with the recently introduced ColorOS 6 user interface from Oppo. Oppo’s own voice assistant, Breeno, will also be available.

Huawei accidentally treats us with the official P30 lineup leaks

The Huawei Netherlands official website recently uploaded the live shots of the P30 lineup. The page was removed shortly after, but the world of leakers was quicker…

We are going to witness the official launch of the Huawei P30 lineup of smartphones come March 26. Right ahead of the launch, Huawei has (accidentally) leaked the live shots of the Huawei P30 and the Huawei P30 Pro. This might very well be planned, but we cannot say anything for sure.

Huawei’s Netherlands website recently uploaded a new page which contained all the details of the upcoming devices. The page was removed pretty quickly, but the world of Android leaks, once again, came out quicker.

Though the images don’t tell us anything we already do not know of, they reassure us about the previous rumors and leaks surrounding the lineup.

Furthermore, we have finally got an idea as to what all we would get if we would pre-order the devices. If you pre-order the P30, you will get a Sonos One speaker, and if you pre-order the Pro variant, you will get the speaker and a wireless charger.

Huawei P30 Pro: Geekbench scores

A couple of days ago, MobielKopen discovered a Geekbench benchmark for the Huawei P30 Pro. As presumed, the phone will be driven by a 1.8Ghz octa-core Kirin 980 processor with 8GB of RAM memory and runs on Android 9 Pie. The same hardware can be found in Huawei’s current flagship model, the Mate 20 Pro.

We already know that the Huawei P30 (and the P30 Pro) will feature a periscope camera on the back and a triple camera setup will make its way to the device.

Meizu 16s appears in yet another leaked image confirming previous rumors

Published

A couple of days ago, the upcoming Meizu 16s received the 3C certification which hinted at a nearby launch (expected to be launched in the month of May).

The device has now once again popped up on the internet courtesy of a leaked hands-on image.

The newly leaked image sort of confirms the previously leaked ones as this one also features an almost bezel-less screen with no notch. The picture appears to be taken at some sort of a smartphones repair shop by the looks of the background.

We can see the front camera at the top right side of the forehead of the Meizu 16s (alleged). Why the other companies cannot try to have the front camera embedded somewhere here is a mystery.

As far as the specifications are concerned, under the hood, the devices (the Meizu 16 lineup) will be powered with the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage with a scope of further expansion with the help of an external SD card.

A 3,600mAh battery will fuel the device, but we won’t get any fast charging coming up with the device.

The price will be somewhere around $490. As of now, this is all we know about the devices, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days as the launch date approaches.
