What’s going to be launched?
Oppo has confirmed that it will be launching the Oppo Reno 8 series in Europe, following the launch of the Reno 8 and the Reno 8 Pro in China and India previously.
That means we already know quite a lot about these phones. The Reno 8 is smaller with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, while the 8 Pro sits at 6.7-inch. Both are full HD+ resolution, with the 8 a 90Hz and the 8 Pro at 120Hz. The Reno 8 is powered by the Dimensity 1300, while the 8 Pro gets the Dimensity 8100-Max. Whether these will remain in Europe remains to be seen.
In terms of cameras, both get a Sony IMX766 50-megapixel main camera, but the 8 Pro is supported by the MariSilicon X processor, both also have ultrawide and macro cameras, likely to be the same hardware on both.
Both should also support 80W SuperVOOC charging in Europe with a 4500mAh battery capacity.
For a limited time, Google will throw in the Pixel Buds A-Series free with your Pixel 6a.
Alongside the launch of these phones – full specs to be confirmed on launch day – we’re also expecting the European debut of the Oppo Pad Air. This is a 10-inch tablet, with Snapdragon 680.
