Oppo Reno12 series goes official: Solid specs, premium design

Oppo confirmed that it would be introducing its Reno12 series this week, so today’s announcement isn’t really a surprise. Both the Reno12 and Reno12 Pro were recently unveiled and judging by what has been revealed, they seem to be pretty solid options for those looking for mid-range phones with premium features. The sequels to Oppo’s popular Reno11 offer many improvements over their predecessors. For starters, the Reno12 comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 8250 processor inside, a newer chipset than the Reno11’s MediaTek Dimensity 8200.

On the other hand, the Reno12 is equipped with a more powerful Dimensity 9200+ CPU, one of MediaTek’s recent chipsets, unlike the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor in the Reno11 Pro.

Oppo has improved many of the camera features in the series. For starters, both the Reno12 series phones feature triple cameras consisting of 50MP main sensors, 50MP 2x telephoto, and 8MP ultrawide sensors.

The difference is that the Reno12 Pro model has a slightly larger Sony IMX890 sensor (1/1.56 inch, 1.0 ┬Ám pixels) compared to the Reno12’s Sony LYT 600 sensor (1/1.95 inch). Both models include a 50-megapixel front camera, so there are no differences here.

Additionally, both Reno12 and Reno12 Pro have a similar 6.7-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. They are also powered by 5000 mAh batteries with support for 80W fast charging.

As for the amount of memory, there are many options to choose from. For example, the Reno12 model comes in 12/256 GB, 16/256 GB, 12/512 GB and 16/512 GB configurations, while the Pro model is available in 12/256 GB, 16/256 GB and 16/512 GB.

When it comes to design, the Reno12 and Reno12 Pro are not only lighter and thinner than previous models, but they are also more rugged thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass coating and IP65 (water-resistant) rating.

Price and availability

Another major selling point of the Reno12 series is the price. Although they are only available in China, their price is extremely competitive. The Reno12 can be had in Millenium Silver, Soft Peach, and Ebony Black for as little as $375 and up to $440, depending on the model.

The ruggedized model, the Reno12 Pro, is available in Champagne Gold, Ebony Black, and Silver Fantasy Purple for as low as $470 or as high as $550, depending on the version.
