Announced in China, the Reno 8 series will soon set foot on French soil to animate the mid-range segment. Among the expected models, the Oppo Reno 8 Pro would be different from the Chinese version.
Oppo has a habit of renewing its Reno series of mid-range smartphones very quickly. While France saw the landing of the Reno 7 in April, the firm has already already formalized its Reno 8 series in the Chinese market. The range includes three models with the Reno 8, Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 Pro+ and relies on value for money. These smartphones have some differences, starting with the SoC that drives them. the Reno 8 Pro thus became the first smartphone to board the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, the new processor from Qualcomm. This SoC is already shaping up to be the new flagship chip for mid-range devices, but it should not take place in the Reno 8 Pro… sold in France.
Differences between the international version and the Chinese variant
The Gizmochina site has spotted the existence of a Oppo Reno 8 Pro equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 8100, instead of the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. This model appeared in a Geekbench benchmark and has the model number CPH2357. It has a chip with 8 CPU cores, with four cores clocked at 2.00 GHz and another four at 2.85 GHz. We find a Mali-G610 MC6 for the GPU part, i.e. the characteristics of the Dimensity 8100 (or 8100 Max) from MediaTek.
The device adds 12GB of RAM and runs Android 12. It boasts a single-core score of 898 points and 3,555 points in multi-core.
In Europe, the Oppo Reno 8 Pro would be the Chinese Reno 8 Pro+
Concretely, the Oppo Reno 8 Pro as we know it today should never arrive in France. Instead, France could see the Reno 8 Pro + landed in China under another name. A common practice for Chinese manufacturers who are used to multiplying the variants in China, then choosing different names during the international launch. The French Oppo Reno 8 Pro would therefore be the equivalent of the Chinese Reno 8 Pro+.
Spearhead of the series, the Reno 8 Pro+ is also the most interesting. He carries a 6.7-inch AMOLED display displaying in Full HD+ à 120 Hz and enjoys a neat design. Under the hood, there are 8 to 12 GB of RAM et 256 Go de stockage to accompany its MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max. The rest of the configuration includes a 4500mAh batterycompatible with the 80W fast charging.
On the photo side, Oppo relies on its MariSilicon X chip (present on the Oppo Find X5) to support a configuration with three cameras. The Reno 8 Pro+ offers a 50 megapixel main sensor (IMX766), a 8 megapixel ultra wide-angle and a module 2 megapixel macro. For selfies and video calls, we are entitled to a 32 megapixel front camera.
An interesting configuration for a smartphone that should wait a few more months before showing up in France. The Reno 7 has been available for two months in our region.
