Following a successful launch of the OPPO Reno Ace in China last year, OPPO will soon be announcing it’s successor in April next month. This device will be known as Reno Ace 2 according to a latest Weibo post published by OPPO’s VP Brian Shen.
Other than revealing the tentative launch date of the OPPO Reno Ace 2, Shen moved on to hint that the device will come with a feather-light weight as well.
If you still remember, last year’s Reno Ace was the first OPPO smartphone to feature the company’s latest 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash-charging technology. Subsequently, the same charging technology was utilized by the recently announced Find X2 and Find X2 Pro duo.
Although many expect an upgraded wired charging technology on the upcoming Reno Ace 2, but rumors out of China have it that the device will in fact be equipped with the same SuperVOOC 2.0 technology. However, it is still possible that the device could feature an improved wireless charging technology instead.
Since the OPPO Reno Ace is a flagship-grade device driven by the Snapdragon 855+ SoC, we can safely assume that the Reno Ace 2 will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 platform as well.
Therefore, it will also be a 5G-ready phone which is capable of supporting both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes. Sadly, the OPPO Reno Ace is currently available only in the Chinese market, and the same could applies to the Reno Ace 2 as well.
In related news, an alleged render of the OPPO Reno Ace 2 had been leaked recently – depicting the device with a circular camera module on it’s rear.
