These smartphones have an AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass for security. While Reno models have started becoming official, the company is yet to launch the successor of the Oppo Find X that was launched previous year.

Now in an interview, Oppo Senior VP Shen Yiren has confirmed that Oppo will be killing its R series of smartphones. Instead, Oppo plans to focus on Reno and Find series, which Yiren says will meet the demands of consumers. Apart from the fact that OPPO had sold more than 100 million OPPO R series smartphone units over the last decade, the company had finally chosen to abandon the series for a much improved OPPO Reno series. It's the company's first device with truly high-end specs since last year's Find X: the lineup includes options for a Snapdragon 855 processor, a 48-megapixel camera, and a 10x optical zoom lens. Although most of the Oppo R smartphones will stop receiving updates in future, Shen said that Oppo will stick to its core values, meaning they will continue to “pursue the beauty and great quality of its smartphones”. The company recently launched the Oppo Reno and the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition in China but there is no news about these smartphones coming to India.

The as of late propelled Oppo Reno has a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with full-HD+ resolution and an in-display fingerprint scanner.

On the other hand, the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, as the name suggets, comes with a camera setup that supports 10x hybrid zoom. It has a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor along with an f/1.7 aperture. It has a 13-megapixel secondary sensor with a periscope telephoto lens on top and an 8-megapixel super wide-angle lens.
