The Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has confirmed the expansion its Reno series in the domestic market. According to the latest update, the Oppo will launch OPPO Reno8 series on May 23.
As part of expansion, Oppo will launch its vanilla OPPO Reno8, the OPPO Reno8 Pro, and the OPPO Reno8 Pro+. The renders and live shots of the OPPO Reno8 series have emerged online just ahead of the launch. It is expected that Reno series will launched in other markets later.

Design of the Reno series
According to the updates, the all three devices in the OPPO Reno8 series is almost similar in design. Featuring a triple rear camera setup and a left-aligned single punch-hole cut-out for the selfie camera at the front, the vanilla OPPO Reno8 will ditch a 3.5mm headphone jack. Not only Reno 8, the headphone jack will be ditched in all Reno series smartphones. The bottom bezel of the OPPO Reno8 seems to be a bit too large.
The OPPO Reno8 will house the power and the volume up and down buttons on the right and left side of the device, respectively.
Moving on to the OPPO Reno8 Pro and the OPPO Reno8 Pro+, both the smartphones will have the brand’s in-house MariSilicon X chipset. The OPPO Reno8 Pro appears to have a slightly smaller bottom bezel and a slightly larger camera island at the back.
The OPPO Reno8 Pro+ seems to have the largest camera module at the back and the tiniest bezels among the lot. The overall aesthetics of the device appear to fall in line with the rest of the devices in the series. The device will feature a glass back and a metal chassis.
Expected availability in India
The Oppo Reno 8 series will be launched as successor to the Reno 7 series that was unveiled in China in November 2021.
