Oppo Reno 8 — the company’s latest additions to its Reno smartphone lineup — is tipped to launch in India in the coming weeks. The smartphone is said to consist of the Oppo Reno 8 and the Oppo Reno 8 Pro. Ahead of the expected launch of the smartphones in India, RAM and storage configurations, and colour options for the Oppo Reno 8 have surfaced online. While the Oppo Reno 8 series debuted in China last month, the company is yet to announce plans to launch the smartphones in India.
Tipster Paras Guglani leaked the details of the Oppo Reno 8 ahead of its expected launch in India. The smartphone is tipped to arrive in two configurations — an 8GB + 128GB storage model, and an 8GB + 256GB variant. The smartphone is said to be available in Shimmer Black and Shimmer Blue colour options.
According to previous reports, the Oppo Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 Pro+ that were launched in China could debut in India as the Oppo Reno 8 and Oppo Reno 8 Pro. It is worth taking the reported specifications with a pinch of salt as Oppo has not yet announced the smartphone’s specifications, or whether it will debut in India.
