This is where the Reno2 Z comes into the picture, attempting to change everything all that we know and have come to expect from it:

  • 6.53-inch Full HD+ AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio or ~395 ppi density
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection
  • Fingerprint sensor under-display
  • Mediatek MT6779 Helio P90 (12 nm) chipset, Octa-core (2x2.2 GHz Cortex-A75 & 6x2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) processor, PowerVR GM9446 graphics and 8GB RAM
  • Quad primary camera: 48MP with f/1.7 aperture, 26mm (wide), 1/2.0", 0.8µm and PDAF + 8MP with f/2.2 aperture, 13mm (ultrawide), 1/4" and 1.12µm + 2MP B/W with f/2.4 aperture, 1/5" and 1.75µm + 2MP with f/2.4 aperture, 1/5", 1.75µm, depth sensor, Dual-LED flash, HDR and panorama
  • Motorized pop-up 16MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture, 26mm (wide), 1/3.1", 1.0µm, LED flash and HDR

  • Dolby Atmos sound
  • Android Pie 9.0
  • Non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • September 2019 release date
  • 29,990 Indian Rupee or ~425 USD price tag

The Reno2 Z clearly a step up from its predecessor, trying to quickly make amends to capture a wider audience. Featuring a slightly larger 6.53-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen, then there’s the Gorilla Glass 5 protection to provide the assurance that we need. The fingerprint sensor under-display makes for an easier way to unlock the smartphone.

Under the hood of the Reno2 Z is similar, except for it having only the 8GB RAM option. The combination of Helio P90, blazingly fast Octa-core processor and superb graphics makes for a very fast device.

There’s no denying that the Reno2 Z is a definite winner over here. Blessed with a 48MP+8MP+2MP+2MP quad primary camera combo, you will be taking loads of high-quality pictures with it. Not to mention taking selfies with splendid effect, with the pop-up 16MP selfie camera that hides in plain sight when not in use.

Another advantage of the Reno2 Z is the 256GB internal storage option and the availability of the microSD expansion slot that can take in an extra 256GB of space.

One last thing, the Dolby Atmos sound system found on the Reno2 Z is a definite winner for those looking for great sound. You get to enjoy crystal clear sound coming out from it, as you listen to your favourite songs and watching your favourite videos – hours after hours non-stop.

                       

Conclusion:

Oppo Reno2 Z fills the disadvantages of its predecessor, but at a slightly higher price tag. If you consider everything in, then you should find a better value for money with this latest release.

Oppo Reno2 Z had just been released for 29,990 Indian Rupees or ~425 USD and is available in either Sky White or Luminous Black colours.
