OPPO Reno9 and 9 Pro allegedly star with an updated look in new renders
The allegedly upcoming Reno9 series of Android smartphones will allegedly build on their predecessors' updated design with raised, almost iPhone-esque, lens cut-outs within their square rear camera surrounds. However, according to new leaks courtesy of the well-known tipster Evan Blass (or @evleaks on Twitter), the company has decided to refine this look somewhat.
According to these new renders, OPPO will launch 3 Reno9-series phones that follow the double-barrel lens trend, 2 of which drop the machined-out camera island for flat glass. It seems to be flush with the rest of the frosted rear panel yet is still picked out in a contrasting glossy texture.
The third has a new shade of green distinct from that of the Reno8 series to finish its vaguely last-gen rear panel. It is also the only 1 with a smaller, tertiary lens where the other 2 have a flash above a blank, probably decorative, circular feature.
Therefore, it seems that the OPPO Reno9 series might consist of a Pro+ model alongside vanilla 9 and 9 Pro variants as usual, although the last 2 will revert to a dual rear camera set-up for the first time in generations.
The top-end version is reportedly destined for the OEM's much-loved Sony IMX766 as a main camera, whereas the other 2 might make do with a 64MP sensor from OmniVision.
Finally, the Reno9 series is now linked to a 32MP selfie camera set in a centrally-aligned punch-hole display. Then again, there is no official launch date for either putative mid-tier smartphone.
