The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition set a high bar for smartphone zoom, boasting a similar periscope zoom camera as the Huawei P30 Pro. Oppo thinks there’s plenty of room for improvement though, as it’s just confirmed that it’ll launch the Oppo Reno 2 series on August 28.
Oppo confirmed the new release on Twitter today, noting that the device will offer 20x zoom and quad rear cameras. The post also shows that the unique Sharkfin pop-up for the selfie camera will make an appearance once again.

It’s unclear whether the Oppo Reno 2’s 20x zoom will be of the hybrid, digital, or periscope variety. We’re leaning towards the former, as the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition offered a 6x periscope camera, 10x hybrid zoom, and 60x digital zoom. So it would be weird if the follow-up model offers 20x digital zoom, while the older model has a higher digital zoom factor.
