Oppo Reno 6 series has finally arrived. At an event in China, Oppo launched three smartphones, as expected. They are the Reno 6 Pro+, the Reno 6 Pro, and the Reno 6. And like this one, the rumours about their specifications also turned out true. The Reno 6 Pro+ is the most premium phone in the lot and rocks a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor. Because of the processor, the Reno 6 Pro+ is also the second most premium device in Oppo’s smartphone portfolio. The Reno 6, on the other hand, is the most affordable one. The launch took place in China, but Oppo may have plans to bring these phones to India soon.
The new Reno 6 series uses a mix of 5G chipsets, showing that Oppo did not stick with one company. While the top-most Reno 6 Pro+ uses a Qualcomm chipset, the other two phones, the Reno 6 Pro and the Reno 6 come powered by MediaTek Dimensity chipsets. There are many differences in their specifications, but there are three things that all three phones share: a 90Hz refresh rate on the display, 65W fast charging technology on the battery, and a 32-megapixel selfie camera. Before I tell you the rest of the specifications, let us get the prices out of our way.

Finally, the cheapest phone, the Reno 6, costs CNY 2,799 (roughly Rs 31,800) and CNY 3,199 (roughly Rs 36,400) for the 8GB and 128GB version, and the 12GB and 256GB version, respectively.
