Today (May 27, 2021), OPPO has launched the Reno6 series of premium mid-range smartphones. It largely consists of refreshes for their immediate predecessors; then again, the OEM has introduced the new Dimensity 900 processor in the base 6. This phone also follows the emerging flat-edge trend among Android phones and starts at about US$440.

OPPO has just announced the latest generation of its upper-mid-tier Reno smartphones. The 6, 6 Pro and 6 Pro+ effectively correspond well to the corresponding variants of the 5 series; then again, they have slightly redesigned rear camera-humps and new colors, not to mention a new SoC per SKU.

Accordingly, the Reno6 Pro still has a 6.55-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support. It also remains on 64+8+2+2MP rear cameras and ColorOS 11.1 based on Android 11. However, its platform is now MediaTek's latest Dimensity 1200, rather than last year's 1000+.

Similarly, the top-end Reno5 Pro+ launched with the Snapdragon 865 SoC and a new 50MP main camera. The 6 Pro+ retains the latter, although its processor is the 870, an effective re-hash of the aforementioned 2020 flagship silicon.

The Dimensity 900-powered Reno6, by contrast, actually gets a new chassis, whereas the 6 Pro and 6 Pro+ have the same tapered edges from their previous iterations. Its display has a 2.5D curve, however, and is a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel that, again, has a 90Hz refresh rate. It has triple 64+8+2MP rear cameras, whereas the Reno5 had quad rear shooters; then again, few customers might be inclined to miss the extra 2MP depth-sensor.

Each variant of the Reno6 series has either 8GB of RAM/128GB internal storage or 12/256GB options. Accordingly, the vanilla 6 has 2799 (~US$438) and 3199 yuan (~$501) price-tags, whereas the 6 Pro costs either 3499 (~$548) or 3799 yuan (~$595).

The 6 Pro+, on the other hand, goes for either 3999 (~$626)or 4499 yuan (~$705). The new series flagship and its Pro counterpart will be available to order from June 5, 2021, whereas the newly flat-edged 6 will be released on June 11, 2021.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
