Oppo Reno 6 5G; Worth Buying?

Oppo’s premium lineup of smartphones under the Reno series has recently been updated to include the Oppo Reno 6 and the Oppo Reno 6 Pro in India. The focus for its younger sibling, the Oppo Reno 6, also seems to be heavily surrounding design and performance as well. Priced at Rs 29,990, this mid-ranger offers a gamut of appealing specifications and features, looking very impressive.

The Oppo Reno 6 5G is the first phone to sport the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset in India, a new 5G SoC for mid-rangers. At the heart of the chip, you have two ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.4GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2GHz. As for the graphics, the chipset comes with a Mali-G68 GPU. This is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.

The Oppo Reno6 also boasts Oppo’s RAM expansion technology with the support for vRAM or virtual RAM up to 5GB. Unfortunately, there’s no SD card slot in the device, so you cannot expand the storage.

The phone houses a decently sized 4,300mAh battery despite its slim body. It supports Oppo’s 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging as well.

As for the display, the Oppo Reno 6 houses a 6.43-inch flat AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution. The display also comes with 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate.

Oppo Reno 6 packs a triple rear camera stack that includes a 64-megapixel primary lens, an 8-megapixel ultrawide shooter, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The phone comes with a 32-megapixel selfie camera housed in a punch-hole cutout on the top left corner of the screen for selfies. There are also some interesting features in this department such as Bokeh Flare Portrait Video, AI Highlight Video, and others. Finally, moving on to the software, the Oppo Reno 6 runs Android 11 based on ColorOS 11.3.

The phone, as we mentioned above, houses the new MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC and pairs it with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The chipset comes with HSR (high-speed rail) mode for gaming that will search and connect to the lowest latency cell tower to minimize ping.
