Oppo launches mid-range Reno 4 Pro for $470


Oppo has announced the Reno 4 Pro for international release. It’s a mid-range phone that isn’t a million miles away from sister company OnePlus’ new Nord in specs, design, and pricing.

The Reno 4 Pro has a matte back panel with a gradient design and a glossy finish on the quad camera bump. It feels very thin and light by today’s standards, at 7.7mm thick and 161g. The camera bump bears the legend “INNOVATIVE QUADCAM” in capital letters, which is a pretty amusing thing to write on a camera bump, but otherwise this is an attractive device.

The phone looks good from the front, too, with a 6.5-inch 90Hz 1080p AMOLED screen with the slightest of curves on the edges. Unlike other curved screens, this panel doesn’t stretch right to the edge of the bezel, which could be a pro or con depending on your perspective.

The internal specs include a Snapdragon 720G processor (versus the Nord’s 765G), 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 4,000mAh battery. Oppo has included 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash charging that can fill the battery up in 36 minutes over USB-C, which is actually a little slower than the implementation of the tech on some other Oppo phones, but speedy when compared to almost any other company. There’s no wireless charging, unsurprisingly for Oppo.
