World’s fourth largest mobile phone brand, OPPO has announced plans to unveil its latest mid-range smartphone series, the Reno 8T, in Nigeria come March 15, 2023. The announcement was made in a post on the brand’s Instagram page. Following successful international launches in India, Philippines and Kenya, Nigeria is set to join the growing list of markets shipping the Reno 8T series to customers.
Launching in 2 models – the Reno 8T 5G and the standard Reno 8T (4G), massive upgrades have been made in key areas of the new smartphones especially in photography, design and Charging. The Reno 8T 5G for instance will feature OPPO’s first ever 108MP Camera, worthily nicknamed “The Portrait Expert”. Other key features include a 120Hz 3D Curved AMOLED Screen to deliver an amazing next-level visual experience, and a stunning 67W SUPERVOOCTM Charger that ensures over 5 hours of call time on a 5-minute charge and from 0-100 per cent in 44 minutes of charging the Reno 8T 5G. Also, as it has become somewhat of a signature, OPPO’s iconic glow design shines forth on the Reno 8T 5G. Impressive specs.
The Reno 8T 4G on the other hand spots a 100MP Portrait Camera, Fiberglass-Leather Design (which we really love by the way), and 5000mAh Battery with 33W SUPERVOOCTM charger. Not forgetting to mention the expandable RAM, dual stereo speakers, 48-Month Fluency Protection, amongst many other features on both smartphones.
All information and specifications of the Reno 8T Series have also been made available on the brand’s official website, an indication that the devices are ready to hit the market immediately after launch.
Most interestingly will be the price of the smartphones. For the excellent specifications that promise a stellar performance on the Reno 8T series, Oppo is launching the devices as mid-rangers.
Interesting yeah? Well, prices for the Nigerian market have not been confirmed, but based on other markets the devices have been launched and are already available, prices are expected to fall within the US$350 – US$450 range. These are speculations of course, until the brand launches and officially makes known the prices for the Nigerian market.
Certainly looking forward to these devices hitting the market. The launch will be a virtual event, and anyone can take part by visiting OPPO Nigeria’s YouTube page and joining the Live stream on March 15, 2023, at 11am.
