Oppo Reno 8 series is now available in India



The Reno 8 and Reno 8 Pro, the newest devices in Oppo’s Reno series, have finally been released in India. Oppo has now introduced the devices in India, however the high-end mid-ranger models feature some notable updates.

The standard Oppo Reno 8 has a 90Hz AMOLED display, 8GB RAM, 128GB of storage, and a triple camera configuration on the back. It is a MediaTek Dimensity 1300-powered smartphone. The Pro variant, on the other hand, includes Oppo’s own MariSilicon X image processing technology, a triple camera configuration, a 120Hz AMOLED display, 12GB RAM, and 256GB storage.

As you might have guessed, the Reno 8 series introduced in India differs slightly from the Reno 8 series that made its debut in China earlier this year. For a short summary of the modified specifications, see the table below.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro

The top-tier Reno model in Oppo’s most recent Reno lineup is the Reno 8 Pro. It has three cameras with a specialized Marisilicon X image NPU, a 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED display, and MediaTek’s Dimensity 8100-Max processor. The phone has a 32MP Sony IMX709 selfie camera, 12GB RAM, 256GB storage, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a 4,500mAh battery with support for 80W wired fast charging.

Comparatively, the Reno 8 Pro in China is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1-based handset with a similar design and a few other small adjustments. The Indian Reno 8 Pro, meanwhile, comes pre-installed with ColorOS 12.1, which is based on Android 12.

The standard Reno 8, which lacks the Marisilicon X chip, is significantly more cheap and features MediaTek’s Dimensity 1300 chip, a 6.43-inch 90Hz AMOLED display, and triple cameras. The phone has a 32MP Sony IMX709 selfie camera, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a 4,500mAh battery with support for 80W wired fast charging.

The identical Reno 8 model that was introduced in China earlier this year was also released in India. It has the identical display, SoC, and camera components. Due to the scarcity of Snapdragon 7 Gen 1-powered handsets, we earnestly hope Oppo did the same with the Pro version.

Pricing & Availability

In India, sales of the Oppo Reno 8 Pro will begin on July 19, while sales of the non-Pro version will begin on July 25. Shimmer Gold and Shimmer Black will be the only colors offered for the standard Reno 8, while Glazed Green and Glazed Black will be the only color options for the Pro variant. The cost of the equipment is:

  • Oppo Reno 8: ₹29,999 (~PHP21k/ $375)
  • Oppo Reno 8 Pro: ₹45,999 (~PHP32k/ $575)
