The company is using currently available fastest Snapdragon octa-core processor. In Nepal, the company is selling a model with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB under Rs 90,000 ($900) price tag. It is pretty good considering raw specifications. This Oppo Reno has a massive screen because 6.6″ is giant. The screen has under display fingerprint scanner and also comes with Gorilla Glass 6. It has FHD+ resolution but at this size, we expect QHD these days. Internal storage also utilizes faster UFS 2.1. This should really give some edge to the performance and work.
Oppo has left no stone unturned because they have really buffed up the phone. The battery size is also 4065 mAh which is very good in terms of numbers. In addition, they are providing new VOOC 3.0 which provides 20W fast charging capability. Such power needs cooling and the company is using 3 approaches for this.

There is one feature named AI Ice Box and it stops long inactive apps to save power
