Huawei P30 Pro released at the start of this month and offers what Express.co.uk believes is the most complete camera system around.
The flagship comes with a whopping four lenses on its rear comprised of a primary, ultra wide-angle, telephoto and a time-of-flight (TOF) sensor that combine to deliver an innovative and rich photography experience for Android fans.
P30 Pro’s telephoto module is commendably innovative thanks to its periscope-style structure that delivers a 5-times optical zoom.
Moreover, this sensor also combines with the others on the camera to output a 10-times hybrid zoom and a commendable 50-times digital zoom.
While the camera technology offered by the Huawei device is incredibly innovative, it appears it could soon be challenged by a new device from OPPO.
Tomorrow the Chinese tech giant will hold a hardware exhibition in the Swiss city of Zurich at 2pm local time (1pm UK time) to unveil its newest smartphone, Reno.
OPPO Reno has already been unveiled in the firm’s home territory of China and was displayed in multiple models; the standard Reno and the Reno 10x Zoom Edition.
A 5G version of the Reno with a 10-times zoom is also expected.
The OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Edition, as the name suggests, places a heavy emphasis on its camera system that, just like the P30 Pro, is capable of delivering a 5-times optical zoom.
OPPO Reno also comes with a 48-megapixel main camera that is accompanied by an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle system.
The hardware earns its name from the 10-times hybrid zoom it is able to deliver when the focal length from its wide-angle sensor to its telephoto module is taken into account.
Camera aside, the OPPO Reno is most striking for its all-screen design that has basically no bezels surrounding it.
The hardware achieves its heroic screen-to-body ratio thanks to a wedge-shaped pop-up module that can emerge from the top of the device and houses the phone’s front-facing camera system and flash.
Reno 10x Zoom Edition comes with a 6.6-inch display that has a resolution of 1080×2340 and a density of 387-pixels-per-inch.
The hardware is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor, has at least 6GB of RAM and comes pre-installed with Android 9 Pie.
Other nice touches include an optical fingerprint reader and a hefty 4,065mAh battery.
On paper at least, this Reno variant appears to be a staunch rival of the Huawei P30 Pro thanks to its zooming ability, all-screen design and expectedly fast performance.
Although a UK release date and pricing for the hardware has not been discussed, OPPO has declared the Reno 10x Zoom Edition will be available in China come May 10 and be priced from 3,999 Chinese Yuan which translates to around £450 at the time of writing.
The standard Reno is extremely similar to the 10x Zoom Edition but lacks a powerful telephoto module, has a less capable processor and comes in more colours.
This flavour will be priced form 2,999 Chinese Yuan which translates to around £340 at the time of writing.
Express.co.uk will be attending the Chinese tech giant’s showcase in Zurich and will bring you all the latest announcements as they happen.
