Oppo is launching the Reno smartphone with 10x zoom and we expect multiple variants of this device. One of the variations will be the chipset, and it appears the different phones will have different methods for heat dissipation. According to Brian Shen, company VP, the Snapdragon 855-powered flagship will have a copper tube and liquid cooling.
People opting for the Snapdragon 710 variant will have an Oppo Reno with actual gel or some sort of paste on a graphite sheet to preserve the Reno from getting too hot in your hands while watching videos or playing high-demanding games.
Speaking about variants, we expect the Oppo Reno to have one version with 5G, another one without the gigabit connectivity (meaning no Snapdragon X50 modem), and even a Lamborghini Edition with 12 GB RAM and plenty of storage. The official announcement is in two weeks, when we will see how much will it cost, and when it will appear outside China.
