OPPO Reno2 and OPPO Reno2 F now available for pre-orders

The OPPO Reno2 and 2F offer a rear quad-camera experience (hybrid zoom, ultra-wide angle, bokeh, ultra night mode, ultra steady mode for video, bokeh effect video, audio zoom, noise cancellation video, etc.) in a no-notch-and-no-camera-hole, all-screen design (complete with rising pop up cameras) continued from the first Reno. The selfie cams are just as impressive (see sample below).

OPPO Reno2 and OPPO Ren2 F are now available

While both models are nearly identical in looks (save for the differently shaped pop up cameras), the Reno2 offers better specs, better rear cameras, and a higher price. The Reno2 series, by the way, will replace the OPPO F series line. The table below highlights in orange some key specs differences between the Reno2 and 2F.
