Oppo has repositioned itself in a reputable way with the Reno series. We have seen some pretty good phones out of this roster. Well today, the brand has unveiled a new phone called Reno Ace. Like the name, the Ace boasts flagship specs such as Snapdragon 855+ chipset and celebrated features like the 90Hz display. However, the main highlight is the 65W charger that claims to top its 4000 mAh battery in just half an hour. Woah, right?
Oppo Reno Ace features
Ace is propelled by Snapdragon 855+ chip, accelerated by up to 12gigs of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. But, what places it in a different league is the 65W fast charging support. This is apparently able to load the battery full in mere 30 minutes. You could charge 0 to 27% in just 5 minutes. Oppo assures USB-C Power Delivery and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge compliance at 18W speed.
The face sports a 90Hz 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a tiny notch. The selfie camera is a 16-megapixel shooter. Invert, and you’ll see the rear cameras aligned in a vertical array. The constituents are a 48-megapixel primary camera (Sony IMX586), an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens with 116-degree FoV, a 13-megapixel telephoto lens with 5x hybrid zoom, and lastly a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor.
On the software side, you get the Color OS 6.1 skinned version of Android Pie with a slew of features like dark mode, Game Boost 2.0, etcetera. Rest, the phone also has a 3.5mm audio jack, NFC, and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Going forward Google wants Android phones to conform to USB type-C Power Delivery standard. Xiaomi and Vivo are also going to bring the 65W quick charging features to their forthcoming phones. Even the OnePlus McLaren Edition set to launch today is expected to boast the same charging tech. Let’s see how the rest of the market reacts to this new race. After all, brands are topping every spec possible to push the limits of flagship experience and to best their rivals.
