series appreciation since its initial release in early 2019. The first devices in this lineup, the OPPO Reno and the Reno 10x Zoom. It featured unique and expressive design with a flush rear camera. It has a crazy pop-up swivel module that features both rear end and front-facing camera. This device doesn't require any kind of notch. This unique design continued to the Reno2 series, but discontinued the Reno3 and used more conventional-looking hole-punch display.
Oppo introduced a high refresh rate display (90Hz) and 65W super VOOC 2.0 charging with Oppo's first phone - Reno Ace. Now, the company is about to release the Reno Ace2. It was kind of announced from the official sources. The OPPO VP Brian Shen confirms that the company is indeed working on the OPPO Reno Ace2 on his Weibo account. Some leaks suggest that the phone has a single, hole-punch on the left side of the display. According to another rumor, the device will be capable to support 5G network connectivity. The phone features a circle rear camera mount something we have already seen in a few Chinese devices like the OnePlus 7T and Redmi K30 Pro. The leak images from TEENA shows a hole-punch camera that seems to particularly big one on the front side of the display.
The device is rumored to be powered by a 2.8GHz processor, likely the Snapdragon 865 and will be available in both 8GB and 12GB RAM variants. It will feature a 2400×1080, 20:9 AMOLED panel which measures at 6.5-inches diagonally. On the camera side, it will be sporting a 48MP main sensor with an additional 8MP + 2MP + 2MP sensors (it is not clear which sensors play which function), while the front-facing camera features a 16MP resolution. The device has a 1955mAh battery. The OPPO Reno Ace wasn't launched outside of China though, so it is still in doubt that the Reno Ace2 will.
A major confusion happened yesterday when UK branch of "Three" carrier tweeted that the Galaxy S4 mini will not be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop update due to Memory limitation, after few hours "ThreeIreland" branch tweeted that the S4 mini update is approved and passed the testing process.
Today, we reached out to Samsung to get a clearance about this. Low-end and mid-range users are NOT forgotten by Samsung, the Korean giant is working hard to bring Lollipop love to as many devices as possible, but time is tight.

@debbiebabes Hi Debbie, good news, that update has been approved and has started to roll out so you should receive it in the coming weeks.— Three Ireland Online (@ThreeCare) April 24, 2015
So far all the Information points out that ONLY the Unlocked Galaxy S4 mini will get Android 5.0 Lollipop update, ThreeUK and ThreeIreland won't Roll-out the update after the device has failed their final Testing.
Plans for Galaxy Ace 4 and Ace Style
Our source also pointed out that Samsung is planning the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 and Galaxy Ace Style. The Update confirmed for some of the Samsung Galaxy Ace family, we still don't have a confirmed release date for the update yet but here's the list of the confirmed devices:
- Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 LTE (SM-G313F) - packs 1GB RAM Snapdragon 410 CPU
- Samsung Galaxy Ace Style LTE (SM-G357) - packs 1GB RAM Snapdragon 410 CPU
- Galaxy Ace Syle (SM-G357FZ) - packs 1GB RAM Snapdragon 410 CPU
Currently, there is no plans (not confirmed) to release the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the following device:
- Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 (SM-G357F) - packs 512 RAM and Snapdragon 400 CPU
The Galaxy Ace family Lollipop updates should start later this year. As for the Galaxy S4 mini, according ThreeIreland and ThreeUK the update won't be rolling-out to these carrier's varaints, only the unlocked S4 mini will get the update.
UPDATE (May,19th 2015)
The S4 mini update has been officially canceled by Samsung, More details Here.
Samsung has officially Canceled Galaxy S4 mini Android 5.0 Lollipop update due to performance issues that will affect the user experience. Today, Samsung UK announced via its official Twitter account that the Galaxy Ace 4 won't get the Official Android 5.0 Lollipop.
So far, there is no official explanation for Canceling the Ace 4 Lollipop update, we assume that it's for the same reason as S4 mini, poor performance while running TouchWiz UI on Lollipop. This is the 2nd low-end device that doesn't get Lollipop update.
@reubenupstone I'm afraid the Galaxy Ace 4 will not be getting the Lollipop update Reuben.— Samsung UK (@SamsungUK) June 25, 2015
@ab3c10376435494 We can confirm the Ace 4 won't be getting Lollipop. For the E5, where did you purchase this device from?— Samsung Mobile UK (@SamsungMobileUK) June 26, 2015
Samsung UK branch has confirmed to us that the Update for the Galaxy Ace 4 has been "Canceled", the device's firmware update didn't pass the Testing stage.
The Korean Giant always cares for its User's Experience and this update would've affected this experience. This is a Bad News for all Ace 4 owners around the world and we are very sorry for that.
