After announcing the first Reno series less than five months ago, OPPO has today unveiled the complete Reno 2 series during a launch event in India that was also live streamed on Twitter. The three devices include the Reno 2, Reno 2 Z, and Reno 2 F, all of which have four rear-facing cameras and run on Android Pie-based ColorOS 6.1.
The Reno 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 730 processor with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Its quad-cameras include Sony’s 48MP Ultra-Clear main camera, 8MP Wide Angle Lens, 13MP Telephoto Lens, and 2MP Mono Lens sensor to capture “any shot you can dream up – near far, moving or still, day or night.”

Reno 2 has a 6.55-inch Dynamic OLED display with Full HD+ resolution, 100 percent DCI-P3 coverage, and an in-display fingerprint sensor that boasts an 11.3 percent faster unlocking speed that the OPPO Reno. The phone also offers 5x hybrid zoom and up to 20x digital zoom allowing users to capture different perspectives over a 16–83mm equivalent focal length. OPPO also didn’t forget to add its signature “shark-fin” 16-megapixel pop-up selfie camera to the Reno 2 equipped with an LED flash.
As for the lower end phones on the Reno 2 lineup, the Reno 2 Z and Reno 2 F have slightly smaller 6.53-inch OLED displays and a standard 16MP pop-up selfie cam as opposed to the shark fin. They also sacrifice a bit on processors with the 2Z running on a MediaTek Helio P90 chipset and the Reno 2F on a Helio P70. The main difference between the two is that the Z uses a Sony IMX 586 sensor and offers an Ultra Dark mode while the F uses Samsung's GM1 sensor with Ultra Mode 2.0.
The entire Reno 2 line with make a staggering launch in India over the next few months. OPPO’s Reno 2 will cost ₹36,990 ($515) and launch on Sept. 20, the Reno 2 Z will be priced at ₹29,990 ($418) available on Sept. 6, and the Reno 2 F will go on sale sometime in November, but OPPO has yet to reveal pricing for the 2 F.
