The Reno6 series was unveiled earlier this week and while plans for a global rollout haven’t been announced yet, we wanted to get your opinion on whether Oppo is on the right track with the three new models.
We’ll start from the top. Of the three, the Oppo Reno6 Pro+ gets the best screen, camera and chipset. More specifically, it has a 6.55” 90Hz AMOLED display (180Hz touch sampling) with 1080p+ resolution. The panel covers 100% of DCI-P3, supports HDR10+ and has a typical brightness of up to 800 nits (1,100 nits peak). It is guarded by Gorilla Glass 5.
The main camera features the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor (1/1.56”, 1.0 µm pixels) with OIS and a color sensor. The same hardware is also used in the more premium Oppo Find X3 Pro and we found it really impressive in our review.
The other cameras are a 13MP telephoto snapper with a 5x “hybrid optical zoom”, in reality a 2x lens plus digital zoom. It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s what the X3 Pro has as well. The major difference between the two camera setups is the ultrawide camera – the Reno6 Pro+ only has a 16MP IMX481 sensor (1/3.09”) compared to a 50MP sensor (1/1.56”) on the X3 Pro. The lens is wider, though, 123º vs. 110º.
Finally, the chipset is a Snapdragon 870 hooked up to 8/128 GB or 12/256 GB of memory. Again, not as impressive as the Find model, but this one costs less – it starts at CNY 4,000. For comparison, the Find X3 Pro (8/256 GB) starts at CNY 5,200 (it goes for €1,149 in Europe). Mind you, the Find X3 has the same camera as its Pro sibling and the same S870 chipset as the Reno and sells for CNY 4,500 (available only in China, unfortunately).
The Oppo Reno6 Pro has the same 6.55” 90Hz HDR10+ display and looks very similar too. However, inside is a Dimensity 1200 chipset, which should be a little slower, but not by much. But it’s the camera that is what you’ll miss the most from the Pro+.
Its main camera uses a 64MP 1/2.0” sensor (0.7 µm pixels) from OmniVision and there is no OIS. And the ultrawide camera is even less impressive, with a 12MP 1/4.0” sensor. There isn’t a telephoto lens of any kind here. This one starts at CNY 3,500 (for an 8/128 GB model), so you’re not saving a ton of cash either.
We left the Oppo Reno6 for last because it has the same camera setup as the Pro. Well, it’s missing the depth sensor, but whatever. It also has the same 65W fast charging as the other two, though with an ever so slightly smaller battery – 4,300 mAh vs. 4,500 mAh on the two Pros.
Even the screen is similar, a slightly smaller 6.4” 1080p OLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate (180Hz touch sampling rate). It lacks HDR10+ and is dimmer, though.
Also, the chipset is a Dimensity 900, which uses older CPU cores and fewer GPU cores compared to the 1200 (both are built on the same 6 nm TSMC node, however). At least this one is tangibly cheaper at CNY 2,800 (which works out to around $440/€360).
So, which Reno6 is the best?
