While not necessarily a successor to the original, the OPPO Reno 2 series has been announced for sale in Europe starting from the 18th of October. The company revealed at the English National Ballet in London that the OPPO Reno 2 and the OPPO Reno 2Z will both be sold across the continent. The Reno series appears to be more of a camera-centric line of smartphones, with the OPPO Reno 10X Zoom and the Reno Standard editions, launching earlier this year. The OPPO Reno 2 series launched in India at the end of August.
The OPPO Reno 2 comes with features like Ultra Dark Mode, which according to OPPO, can be used to capture images when the amount of ambient light is less than 5 lux. The OPPO Reno 2 lacks a dedicated periscopic module such as the one the first-gen Reno but the telephoto sensor supports 5X hybrid zoom with a total of 20X digital zoom. Additionally, the Reno 2 gets portrait and Ultra Macro modes and the onboard OIS allows for shake-free videos at 4K resolution.
Specifications wise, the OPPO Reno 2 brings the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G and up to 8GB of RAM. The front-facing camera is a shark fin, just like the first Reno, and slides up out of the top of the device. As a result, you get a bezel-less, notch-less experience with a pretty cool front-facing camera to boot.
