Leaked images reveal all the colors for Oppo's upcoming Reno 12 series

 

The Chinese company Oppo is gearing up to unveil its next smartphones, the Reno 12 and Reno 12 Pro, on May 23. Ahead of the launch, there have been multiple leaks, and now new images show all the colors both phones will be available in.

 

Well-known and trusted leaker Evan Blass shared images of the Reno 12 and Reno 12 Pro on X. Both phones will come in three color options. While they look almost identical, there are subtle differences in their color shades and finishes.

 

 

The Reno 12 and Reno 12 Pro both come in a sleek Black option. But the Reno 12 Pro also shows off a stylish gradient light pink, while the standard Reno 12 flaunts a soft pink design with a matte finish.

 

The third color option really stands out. The Reno 12 comes in a Millennium Silver, while the Pro model will be available in a unique Silver Fantasy Purple. You can see both colors side by side, thanks to another leak from China showing what appear to be real-life images of the upcoming phones.

 

So, with so many leaked images, the design and colorways of the Reno 12 and Reno 12 Pro are no longer a secret. As you can see, both phones sport a triple camera setup, and the specs for these cameras recently leaked, too.

Both phones are rumored to house a 50MP main camera featuring a Sony IMX890 sensor with OIS (optical image stabilization), an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 50MP 2x telephoto camera. Furthermore, speculation suggests they may boast a 50MP selfie camera as well.

 

Previous reports suggest that the standard Oppo Reno 12 could pack a MediaTek Dimensity 8250 processor, while its Pro counterpart may boast the more powerful Dimensity 9200+. The Pro model is rumored to feature a 6.7-inch display with a crisp 1.5K resolution and a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, along with a substantial 5,000 mAh battery supporting 80W wired fast charging.

 

Additionally, OnePlus and Oppo recently announced a partnership with Google to bring Google's AI to their phones. The Oppo Reno 12 series is anticipated to incorporate not only some of Google's AI features but also several developed in-house.

 

Price details are still under wraps, but the initial launch of these two phones will take place in China. Whether they'll hit other markets soon after remains uncertain. Keep an eye out for further updates.


Motorola readying a Moto G84 5G sequel, key specs leaked

 

Motorola plans to launch another affordable smartphone in Europe, the Moto G85. The sequel to last year's Moto G84 5G comes with a few improvements over the current model, although the phone might end up being a lot more powerful than the latest leak suggests.

 

Recently spotted on Geekbench (MySmartPrice), the Moto G85 is powered by a Qualcomm chipset that hasn't been announced yet. According to the benchmark, the chipset features an octa-core processor with codename Malmo, which accommodates two performance cores clocked at 2.3GHz and six efficiency cores clocked at 2GHz.

 

On top of that, the chipset includes an Adreno 619 GPU (graphics processing unit). Rumor has it that this might be Qualcomm's Snapdragon 4 Gen 3 processor, but since it wasn't launched yet, it's hard to compare it with any of the previous chipsets when it comes to performance.

 

Despite that, it's safe to assume that the Snapdragon 4 Gen 3 will offer some improvement over the current chipsets. The new processor is paired with 8GB RAM, but that's likely to be just one of the variants based on the amount of memory.

 

The Moto G85 was previously spotted on a European retailer's website and the listing revealed that phone has 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage, so Motorola will launch at least two different models. More importantly, the improved version was listed in Europe for €300, so the 8GB variant will cost a lot less (hopefully).


The Galaxy S25 Ultra will maintain its quad camera setup

 

According to the rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S25 Ultra might not see an improvement in battery life. But the good news is that in the camera department, things will not change either. If that sounds a bit strange, it is because previous rumors have suggested that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could drop a camera from its setup.

 

This means that instead of the quad camera setup found in the Galaxy S24 Ultra, it could end up with a triple camera setup. However, a recent post on X by reliable tipster Ice Universe reasserts that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will maintain its quad camera design. The tipster claims that unlike the previous rumors, Samsung won't be removing the 3x module from the phone.

 

 

They also suggest that there is a chance it could instead be upgraded. This could be welcome news. The 10MP 3x telephoto camera has been around since the Galaxy S21 Ultra. This means that for the most part, it has remained the same over the years. Samsung upgrading it to a higher resolution sensor could be a nice change if true. Alternatively, upgrading it with larger optical zoom could also be great.

 

The Samsung Galaxy S25 series will not launch until 2025. We're barely halfway into 2024 so it's probably a good idea to take it with a grain of salt for now.


The Sony Xperia 1 VI is finally here, but there's a Catch

 

Regardless of how you look at it, it can be said that Sony's flagship Xperia 1 VI is probably its most divisive one yet. The launch of the Japanese electronics giant's newest premium Android handset has raised a few eyebrows mostly due to some interesting hardware decisions, but that's not to say that the entire phone is "bad." Let's take a look.

 

Sony implemented some considerable changes to the display - the phone ditches the tall 21:9 aspect ratio for a slightly stouter 19.5:9 screen, but that's not all - in lieu of Sony's signature 4K resolution panel, the Xperia 1 VI downgrades to an FHD+ resolution display - for context, this is the same resolution found on the much cheaper Pixel 8a.

It's not all bad though - the phone comes with Sony's patented Bravia display technology which should make for vibrant colors, in addition to a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, and higher brightness.

 

Another highlight of the Xperia 1 VI is the camera setup on the rear panel, which features Sony's Exmor T sensor in addition to Zeiss optics. This includes a 48 MP, f/1.9, 24mm primary lens, a 12 MP, f/2.3, 85mm telephoto lens, as well as a 12 MP, f/2.2, 16mm ultra wide camera; selfies are handled by a 12 MP camera in front. Video on the main setup maxes out at 4K at 120fps, and the phone does pack a ton of in-depth imaging functions with the overhauled camera app.

 

As with most other flagship phones this year, the Xperia 1 VI comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 inside, which is assisted by up to 12GB of RAM (no 16GB action on here), and up to 512GB of internal storage. The phone also runs on a 5,000 mAh battery with 30W charging support, all wrapped up in an IP68 chassis with Gorilla Glass on both the front and back.

 

With that being said, the phone will get up to four years of support, and will come priced at around $1,600 when converted, making it one of the more expensive Android devices on the market right now.
