The OPPO Reno series distinguishes itself via a pop-up module that forms a wedge on the top of the phone when the selfie camera is deployed. Prior to its launch, it was rumored that the Reno would launch in 2 to 3 variants: a flagship version with the Snapdragon 855 processor and 10x zoom, a more 'standard' copy of the same with a Snapdragon 710 SoC and no zoom, and a possible, top-end 5G edition.
These rumors largely proved true. However, the leaks on this subject also included hints of a fourth Reno: one with a 6.4-inch FHD+ display and a MediaTek processor. Today (May 13, 2019), MySmartPrice claims that this variant does in fact exist and is now being sold via a Chinese carrier.
The blog may have found references to this phone on China Telecom's website. It is called the Reno Z (or PCDM10). It does indeed have a MediaTek P90 SoC, and its 2340x1080 display is made of AMOLED. In addition, it apparently has 6GB of RAM, 256GB of internal space and a 3910mAh battery.
The Reno Z apparently also has a better range of color options compared to the other variants in this line. They are listed as Star Purple, Extreme Night Black, Coral Orange and Bead White. However, unlike the base Reno and Reno flagships, it has only two (48+5MP) rear-facing cameras, which is joined by a 32MP front-facing module in a water-drop notch.
This new Reno is reportedly sold at 2,599 yuan (~US$377) via China Telecom, whereas the standard Reno has a price of 2,999 yuan (~$436) in its home country.
