Kenya has gradually been moving to the next phase of connectivity that is 5G as telcos look to start improving customer experience with super high-speed internet. This was witnessed through the rollout of the network by Safaricom as Airtel continues working on upgrading its infrastructure to accommodate 5G as well. Well, this would also be made possible with the rollout of devices that support the network and OPPO seems to be aware of this need.
The smartphone company has today launched the OPPO Reno6, its first 5G-enabled device in Kenya. Of course, the handset is expected to offer many more features in order to compete with devices in its price range.
The smartphone features a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 1080 x 2400 pixels. This is powered by a MediaTek 1200 octa-core processor integrated with the 5G modem. The chip works alongside 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage although there is a variant with 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage space.
At the back lies a quad-camera module consisting of a 64MP wide camera, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro camera. The 32MP selfie camera is positioned on the side of the display.
One of the main highlights is the 4500mAh battery that supports up to 65W of SuperVOOC charging technology. This is through the USB Type-C port.
“To meet consumers’ growing enthusiasm for videos in 5G era, OPPO 5G smartphones are able to create a seamless experience covering video shooting, optimizing, and editing for users with innovative technologies and applications, such as SoLoop smart video editor app which have successfully optimized the process of filming, editing, viewing, and sharing. These are features that users will get to enjoy with the introduction of the OPPO Reno6,” says OPPO Kenya.
The smartphone is now available for pre-order at Masoko, Jumia, Skygarden, and Kilimall and stores across the country at KES 59,999. For every device ordered customers will walk away with Enco W32 buds, OPPO band, and a backpack.
