Oppo has officially taken the wraps off its latest smartphone series, the Reno6 5G, in Kenya.
The device was unveiled at events in Nairobi on Monday, September 6th, as expected.
There is a standard Reno6 5G and two Pro variants (Reno6 Pro 5G and Reno6 Pro+ 5G).
The Oppo Reno6 5G features several upgrades over its predecessor, the Reno5.
There is the obvious one: 5G. Then there are others like the Dimensity 900 chipset from MediaTek, which facilitates the 5G network connectivity and, NFC, which makes it easier to do things like payments processing (where the same is available), customizing functions like alarm starts and stops (with the use of NFC stickers) and, if you are like yours truly, fast pairing with compatible home music systems to get the party started.
The device also features a couple of walk backs from its predecessor. For instance, while it has received an appreciable facelift, that has come with the dropping of the microSD card slot and the 3.5mm headphone, something that may irk some.
The super-fast SuperVOOC 2.0 is one of the outstanding features of the device. juicing up the device in no time.
The Reno6 5G series runs on ColorOS 11.3 which is based on Android 11.
Pricing for the Oppo Reno6 5G series starts at Kshs 60,000 for the standard variant.
