Chinese smartphone brand Oppo just released their latest smartphone a few days ago – the Reno2 at a launch event in China. As of now, the phone is officially available for sale in China. While the Reno2 is certainly the best phone that has come from Oppo recently, the company also announced that a flagship model named Reno Ace will make its debut later this year in December. The Reno Ace’s superfast charging feature is being much talked about everywhere since the release event and it seems that Oppo might just be getting a stronghold in the flagship race.
Brian Shen, Oppo’s Vice President, confirmed that the upcoming Oppo Reno Ace will have 65W VOOC super fast charging. The announcement was made by Shen in a post on Weibo, China’s most popular social media platform. Oppo had made headlines last year too in terms of fast charging technology, when they came out with the Oppo R17 Pro smartphone last year that had 50W superVOOC charging technology. The R17 Pro could go from zero to 40% battery in just 10 minutes of charging, so it’ll be interesting to see what the 65W superVOOC charger in the upcoming Reno Ace could do.
90 Hz ‘Waterfall’ Display
While the Reno Ace’s full specifications have not been confirmed yet, it seems very likely according to rumors that it will have a 90Hz refresh rate display. If true, it wouldn’t come as a surprise, given the 90Hz display trend in flagship phones this year. Moreover, the Reno Ace is also very likely to be the Oppo phone with the stunning curved edges that was teased in July by Shen himself on social media. The images showed a mysterious phone with extremely narrow bezels on both ends, with edge-to-edge display on the sides. Such a design offered the phone what seemed to be the closest screen space to a hundred percent that we have seen yet in any phone. It is unknown right now whether the phone will have a pop-up camera setup or an under-display setup for the front camera.
No more information about the OPPO Reno Ace is available on the internet as of now. However, users can expect a decent Snapdragon 855+ SoC. Or maybe even a Snapdragon 7xx 5G support chip, since it’s a flagship model. Unless any more information comes out through leaks, all users can do right now is wait for Shen or Oppo to share updates officially. It’ll be interesting to see what features Oppo brings onboard its debut flagship model to compete with the likes of flagship phones like OnePlus 7 out there. One thing’s for certain – the 65W superVOOC fast charging and a 90Hz refresh rate display are definitely going to be major attractions.
