It's not all bad news about the screen, as the 6.5-inch AMOLED panel has a 90Hz refresh rate, which is rapidly becoming a must-have feature on high-end phones, as the smoothness it adds to scrolling and mobile games is noticeable. There is also 8GB of RAM and 256GB model which costs 2,499 Yuan in China. With 5 minutes of charging that can bring around 2 hours to 6 hours of autonomy. There is also a 4000 mAh battery and 65W charging.
The smartphone comes with three color variants: Polar Sunshine (White), Fantasy Forest (Green), and Cyber Metal (Blue). The device starts at 3,199 yuan (~$450) for the 8GB/128GB model, 3,399 yuan for the 8GB/256GB variant (~$478), and 3,799 yuan (~$534) for the 12GB/256GB option.
Quick charging has been an important staple of Oppo's phones for years; the company's F9 smartphone, which I reviewed last year, had one of the fastest charging times I've ever seen. There's no word on global availability just yet. OPPO are holding the Reno2 event next week on the 16th of October, it is possible they may announce it then but it is unlikely. The device's screen-to-body ratio is 91.7-percent, by the way.
The chipset is the same Snapdragon 730G with the same RAM and storage options including 6GB/8GB then 128/256GB storage. What's surprising is perhaps the Gundam 40th anniversary edition Reno Ace: only 30,000 of these special units will be available, and both the phone and packaging come in matching designs that pay homage to the RX-78-2.

Google Pixelbook Go hands-on ahead of next week's unveiling
It's really unlike anything we've seen and is said to feel "somewhat similar to a washboard or the roof of a dog's mouth". For connectivity, this laptop might come with Two USB-C ports, 3.5mm headphone jack, WiFi and Bluetooth options.
The camera? The same.
Speaking of the cameras, the Oppo Reno Ace serves up a 48MP primary camera (IMX586), 8MP ultra-wide lens (116 degree field of view), a 13MP telephoto shooter with 5x hybrid zoom, and a 2MP monochrome sensor.
All in all, the Reno Ace sounds like a flagship device in most respects, but those charging capabilities might help it stand out from the crowd.
Realme were always the more affordable brand, and OPPO is more established so it is not surprising there is a price difference.
