OPPO adds two more budget-friendly 5G smartphones

What OPPO started with the Reno 5G it’s now continuing with two affordable 5G Android phones in the Reno4 5G and Reno4 Z 5G.

OPPO, the budget-friendly Android phone manufacturer, is on a roll of late. The smartphone manufacturer recently unveiled its new for OPPO Watch Series and OPPO Enco wireless headphones. Now it’s got a couple more 5G handsets to add to its fleet that can be in your hand sooner rather than later.

OPPO’s new Reno4 Series consists of two smartphones: the more expensive Reno4 5G ($799RRP) and the cheaper Reno4 Z 5G ($599RRP). For those unaware, OPPO’s Reno series has a reputation for unique looks and all-important tech beneath the lid. One of the real appeals, though, is the mix of a
reasonably priced Android phone with pleasantly surprising high-end features.

In the case of these new handsets, that means 5G capabilities for as low as $599. It’s not all about the 5G, though, with both Reno4 handsets also packing high-end displays, fast charging, and clever camera modes (low light photography is one of the highlighted bragging points).

Here’s a side-by-side look at the specs.
