Rumor | The OPPO Reno8 will launch with the OnePlus 10 Pro's camera hump
The OPPO Reno series of smartphones has had a tendency to launch with very standard rear camera modules, however dressed up with fancy color-schemes and treatments their rear panels have been. However, the OEM did shake this pattern up to some extent with the 7 and 7 Pro, and is now once again said to do so with their alleged successors.
Then again, the Reno8 Pro might be a little less original in doing so, as it is a potential future smartphone rumored to adopt the rear camera hump also used for OPPO's typically Chinese-market K series. However, a new post from the eminent leaker Digital Chat Station might dispute this.
According to the tipster, the Reno8 series "is probably like this", with "this" presumably referring to the single image attached to the message. It shows a rear panel mobile tech fans might be much more inclined to identify as the OnePlus 10 Pro.
This flagship provides what might be intended as a different take on Samsung's design for its top-end Galaxy S22 Ultra phablet, resulting in a squarish main camera housing that is exclusive to it - if not for long, should Digital Chat Station be correct.
The leaker also now suggests that the Reno8 line will not have the exact same chassis as a 10 Pro, however, as 6.55-inch displays (with FHD+ resolutions and 120Hz refresh rates) are apparently on the cards for the OPPO phones.
At least 1 variant of the upcoming line is also now allegedly destined for the well-favored Sony IMX766 sensor as the main camera to be found in its putative distinctive hump, allegedly ported straight from OnePlus right down to its round ring flash, although Hasselblad branding may be absent in this case.
On the other hand, Digital Chat Station also intimates that the actual Reno8 lens arrangement is hard to determine right now, as it may only have been spotted in reference casing thus far. Therefore, the 10 Pro-evoking render might just be a placeholder after all.
