The Reno 8 series was first introduced by OPPO in May 2022 in China. Later, the company unveiled the OPPO Reno 8 and the OPPO Reno 8 Pro for India last month. The same Smartphones have now been launched in Europe, and it’s only here in Africa that we are still lagging. As far as the event is concerned, it could be making its way here in our Locally since the previous generations have been well received.
Much about the Oppo Reno 8 Pro, Oppo Reno 8, and Oppo Reno 8 Lite is already Known. To start with, the Reno 8 Pro sports a renowned MariSilicon X . This is the case with Reno 8 range as well. The Reno 8 and 8 Pro put a lot of emphasis on the photograph. For its part, the Reno 8 Lite makes an effort to distinguish itself by adding extra features like retro notification LEDs.

As mentioned before, the main centre of attraction of these smartphones is the photographic aspect. The pro model is outfitted with the MariSilicon X processor that helps the phone perform admirably in the video, especially now that the 4K Ultra Night video mode has been added.
Diving into the Camera Aspects, we have a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. The selfie sensor features 32 megapixels on the front and optical stabilization.
We also have an FHD+ Oled panel at the front, which spans a large diagonal of 6.7 inches and is updated at 120 Hz. Under the so-called supersonic screen, which is quicker than usual, the screen conceals a fingerprint sensor. The phone’s IP54 certification is the one little sacrifice in terms of design.
Under the hood, we have a MediaTek Dimensity 8100-max processor, created in partnership with Oppo engineers and found for the first time in a smartphone in the Oppo Reno 8 Pro. We expect to see ColorOS 12.1 on this particular phone and fast charging experience at 80 W.

The Oppo Reno 8 Lite has a 6.43-inch Oled display but lacks HDR 10+ and only refreshes at 90 Hz. With a Dimensity 1300 chip, it should also be less powerful, making it perfect for the mid-range top. Even if the MariSillicon X is absent from the game, the score in the image should still be stunning.
The Oppo Reno 8 Lite is equipped with a Snapdragon 695 5G, a much more modest chip and passes on a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The picture portion uses two extremely auxiliary 2-megapixel sensors in addition to a less talented 64-megapixel main camera, and a 16-megapixel selfie camera is used. Also, remember that the Reno 8 Lite requires a 33W charge.
The official pricing and date of reveal for the Reno 8 Pro, Reno 8, and Reno 8 Lite in Kenya will happen sometime later in September
