The Reno 6 and Reno 6 Pro are OPPO’s latest attempt at affordable flagships

OPPO has launched the 6th iteration of its Reno series in India — the Reno 6 and Reno 6 Pro 5G. While the Reno 6 is a premium mid-range offering, the Reno 6 Pro offers flagship-grade specifications. The Reno series has had a few good phones in the past, including the recently launched Reno 5 Pro that offered a good price to performance ratio. With the Reno 6 series, OPPO has mainly focused on tweaking a few things here and there and improving on the shortcomings of the Reno 5 series.

Both the phones in the Reno 6 series aim to offer a premium experience, especially with the design and build quality. The Reno 6 and Reno 6 Pro are slim smartphones that do not feel bulky and fit into the hand easily. They’re lightweight, too and the Reno 6 Pro’s curved display and back seamlessly integrates into the frame, making it even more comfortable to grip.

Reno 6 series phones

OPPO is known to experiment with different designs and patterns on the back of their phones, and they’ve done exactly that with the Reno 6 series as well. While the phones come in two color options — Stellar Black and Aurora — the Aurora variant is the one that stands out from the crowd. It changes color based on the light falling on it and has a shimmering or almost glowing look in certain lighting conditions.

The Reno 6 and Reno 6 Pro have a few things in common, like the camera setup. Both phones feature a 64MP primary camera with an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro sensor. The Reno 6 Pro gets an additional portrait camera. For selfies, the phones pack a 32MP front-facing camera. Even the display resolution and refresh rate on both phones are the same — 1080p at 90Hz, with both of them being OLED panels. But the Reno 6 Pro, being the more premium phone, gets a 3D curved display that looks and feels better.

The Reno 6 and 6 Pro score high in terms of performance as they feature MediaTek’s Dimensity series of chipsets. The base Reno 6 gets the MediaTek Dimensity 900 capable of solid performance, while the higher-end Reno 6 Pro is powered by the flagship Dimensity 1200. The Reno 6 series offers 65W fast charging support in the form of OPPO’s SuperVOOC 2.0 tech, which takes just a little over half an hour to top up the batteries on both phones.

Pricing & Availability

The OPPO Reno 6 and Reno 6 Pro will be available in two color options – Stellar Black and Aurora – and will be sold via Flipkart and at OPPO’s offline stores. The Reno 6 will be available at a starting price of ₹29,990 for the 8/128GB variant, while the more premium Reno 6 Pro will retail for ₹39,990 for the 12/256GB variant. The Reno 6 Pro will go on sale in India on 20th July, while the Reno 6 will go on sale on 29th July.
