The OPPO Reno2 is to be released soon during an event which will take place in India. It may be launched in several variants with different CPUs. This theory may be borne out by new leaks that show 2 different model names, 1 of which is linked to the new Snapdragon 730G SoC.

OPPO has a second generation of its Reno smartphone series in the works. Most recently, it may have surfaced in a Geekbench leak, in which it appears to be powered by the Snapdragon 675 SoC. This putative Reno2 had the model number PCKM00. Therefore, it appears that it will be a mid-range phone, whereas the original had multiple variants, one of which was of flagship calibre.

However, new leaks have made this situation more complicated. AnTuTu has also reportedly tested the PCKM00 - however, the results showed that it ran a completely different chipset: the Snapdragon 730G. This is an emerging variant of the 730 with a faster GPU and, thus, potentially improved performance. Therefore, it appears that there will indeed be at least 2 versions of the OPPO Reno2 on its release.

Interestingly, it appears that there is another new OPPO device out there. It has a completely different model number, which is CPH1907. It has appeared on Geekbench with the same specs as the PCKM00 that appeared on the same site. This model has also been certified by the Bluetooth SIG, which has resulted in the disclosure of some specs that may be associated with the Reno2 series.

This documentation shows that the CPH1907 will have a 6.5 inch FHD+ display. However, the best evidence that it will be a Reno2 is the mention of quad rear cameras. They consist of the Sony IMX586 48MP sensor; an 8MP 116-degree ultra-wide lens; a 13MP telephoto sensor and a 2MP module. The front-facing camera is  16MP in resolution, which, if earlier rumors are correct, will be housed in a shark-fin pop-up component.

At least 1 variant of the Reno 2 is also reportedly destined for 20x zoom, which may improve on the 10x hybrid zoom found in the first generation considerably. This new line of smarphones will be launched in India to start off with, and will reportedly be released to the Chinese market therafter on September 10, 2019.
