The Reno Ace is an OPPO phone in which this OEM's ultra-fast 65-watt (W) charging tech was debuted. Now, some leaks assert that a new device from the same company is its successor. With what looks like the Snapdragon 865 SoC and 8GB of RAM in a base model, it does looks like a convincing candidate.

TENAA has approved a new OPPO mobile device with the model number PDHM00. It is powered by a processor clocked at 2.8GHz, which is, therefore, likely to be the Snapdragon 865. This new product will have 8 and 12GB RAM variants with 128 to 256GB of fixed storage. However, it does balance these flagship specs with an FHD+ 6.5-inch display that has a single 16MP punch-hole camera.

This phone, according to some rumors, will be called the Reno Ace 2 - or possibly the Reno Ace 5G, as it also certified for this connectivity - on its launch. The original Ace introduced OPPO's 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 wired charging standard to the world. This spec is carried over to its putative successor, although it will also reportedly also get 40W wireless charging for 2020.

Oddly, TENAA lists the capacity of the battery tasked with supporting this as 1955mAh. This puzzling spec may be explained by another iteration of the dual-pack technology seen in the OEM's current flagships, the Find X2 series.

The OPPO PDHM00 also has a Redmi K30 Pro-esque round rear camera module, made up of 48+8+2+2MP sensors. The "Reno Ace 2" is slated to launch some time in April 2020, and may be a Chinese-market exclusive. Considering the attractive nature of its putative first generation (not to mention its special Gundam Edition), this might be a shame.
