Oppo has for long-time been manufactured phones that target mid-range customers. However, in the recent past, Oppo has given companies that are known to manufacture high-end phones like Samsung, Huawei, and iPhone a run for their money. Oppo R series phones have performed exceptionally well on the market. In 2019, Oppo decided to go a notch higher by launching the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, an exceptionally looking smartphone. This phone has incredible features that make it stand out from this rest. From triple back camera and pop up selfie camera to notch-less AMOLED display, the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom is genuinely on its level.
Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Design and display
Oppo has a rich history of designing smartphones with moving parts. The company started this trend way back in 2013 when they launched the Oppo N1, and since then, most of their phones have different kinds of motor ability. The X10 zoom features a motorized shark fin selfie camera. The fact that it is notch-less means that the screen covers the entire front. The back is also covered with a frosty glass and metal frame that holds everything together.
A massive 6.6-inch AMOLED screen occupies the notch-less front with well-curved corners. The screen has 1080 by 2340 resolution, 19.5.9 aspect ratio a 387pp density. At 440 nits, the X10 zoom is bright enough but not as bright as that of Samsung Galaxy S10. The display only consumes 93.1% of the phones face. The OLED is protected by the latest version of Gorilla Glass which is extremely tough and durable. The Reno 10X zoom is currently one of the most streamlined phones on the market. The only thing that is stopping this phone from being 100% smooth is the O-Dot, a button that helps to protect the selfie lens. The almost smooth flat design gives the 10X zoom a sleek, classy feel. You will have to practice for a while to master how to hold this phone upright.
The shark fin Pop up host the selfie camera and the front and back LED flash. The volume sits on the left side, the power button on the right side, and the USB and downwards facing speaking sits on the bottom side of the phone. The phone does not have 3.5mm headphone jack, a feature that is slowly being dropped in most mid-range and high-end phones.
Software, hardware, and performance
The Reno 10X zoom runs on Android 9 pie with latest ColorOS 6 that features an app drawer, new custom front and white menu elements intertwined with light colors. This phone features a QUALCOMM snapdragon 855 chipset that incorporates an Octa-core CPU known as Kryo 485. The GPU is Adreno 640, which is powerful enough to handle almost anything that you throw at it. The 10X zoom has 8GB RAM and 256GB storage space. The QUALCOMM processor that this smartphone uses is currently the best on android phones. This phone can smoothly run multiple apps at the same time and play big games that most average phones cannot.
The reno 10X zoom has a triple camera that consists of a 48MP f/1.7 primary snapper which is supported by an 8MP sensor with an ultra-wide lens and 13MP sensor with a periscope lens for better zoom. This phone got its name from its remarkable zooming ability. Its rear camera supports 5X optical zoom through its periscope lens and 60x digital zoom which the highest ever seen in a smartphone. Thein primary camera takes extremely vivid pictures both during the day and night. The 16Mp selfies camera uses a motorized pop-up mechanism to expose the camera when taking a photo.
