2021 is being a non-stop of mobiles as in recent years and, despite everything that happens in this crazy world, the showcase continues to be renewed and perhaps expanding. OPPO is one of the main responsible, especially in its mid-range and the last to arrive is the OPPO Reno5 Z 5G.
A mid-range smartphone as its name suggests, supports 5G and does so thanks to a MediaTek processor. Pick up the baton from the OPPO Reno4 Z and expand the Reno5 saga that was already introduced with the OPPO Reno5 5G, Pro 5G and Pro + 5G, the OPPO Reno5 Lite and the OPPO Reno5 K 5G.
Lightweight, slim and fashionable
OPPO is one of those Asian manufacturers that launch terminals with different names depending on the market, such as Xiaomi, and in this case the OPPO Reno5 Z is a renowned OPPO F19 Pro +. Reviewing the design of these, we see that there are notable changes with respect to the Reno4 Z and that now the camera module is rectangular and larger, in addition to the fingerprint reader on the screen and a single front camera.
Despite not having a screen with a reduced diagonal in view of the dimensions, it is a compact, light and thin mobile moving away from 200 grams and staying at 7.8 millimeters. This chassis fits a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen with FullHD + resolution but in this case, we do not see that it joins the hertz fashion, remaining at a 60 Hz refresh rate. According to the brand, this screen occupies 90.8% of the front.
Meeting minimum range
As we said at the beginning, the manufacturer has relied on MediaTek for the processor and in this case we see a MediaTek Dimensity 800U. It comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, without the possibility of expanding the storage.
It also does not have NFC (at least this version), but it does have an audio minijack. And speaking of the battery, we see a 4,310 mAh battery that supports 30 W fast charging, an aspect that distinguishes it from the F19 Pro + (gaining milliamps and losing fast-charging power).
Speaking of the cameras, it seems that although the shape has been changed, the background is very similar to that of the Reno4 Z, seeing:
- 48-megapixel main sensor with f / 1.7 aperture lens.
- Wide-angle with an 8-megapixel sensor with the lens with aperture f / 2.2 and field of view of 119 degrees.
- Two-megapixel sensor for macro photography with 2.4 aperture lens.
- Monochrome two-megapixel sensor with 2.4 aperture lens.
- Front camera with 16-megapixel sensor and lens with 2.4 aperture.
The Oppo Reno5 Z 5G is available for purchase in UAE for AED1,499 ($410/€345) through major retailers and e-commerce platforms and in Singapore through online retailers Lazada and Shopee for SGD529 ($395/€330).
