Oppo Reno series is set to be launched in India on May 28, a month after it was unveiled in the China market. The company had launched three smartphones as part of the series - Oppo Reno, Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition, and Oppo Reno 5G - with the side-swing selfie camera module being the big headline. The module is claimed to spin out in 0.8 seconds and includes not just the camera for capturing self-portraits but also the earpiece, front soft light, and rear LED flash. It is yet to be confirmed if all the three smartphones will be launched in India or not.
Oppo Reno series expected price in India
The official price of the smartphones will be announced at the launch event. In China, the Oppo Reno has been priced at CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs 30,900) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, while its 6GB RAM + 256GB storage model is priced at CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs 34,000) and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage model comes at CNY 3,599 (roughly Rs 37,100). The smartphone was launched in three colours - Extreme Night Black, Fog Sea Green, Mist Powder, and Nebula Purple.
Meanwhile, the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition price in China starts at CNY 3,999 (roughly Rs 41,200) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration. The 6GB RAM + 256GB storage model costs CNY 4,499 (roughly Rs 46,400) and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant comes at CNY 4,799 (roughly Rs 49,500).

The 5G variant is yet to be priced in China and is unlikely to be launched in India, given the lack of 5G telecom networks in the country.
