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.
The iPhone 8 is already one of the most anticipated phones of the year and given how much revolutionary the smartphone has been made out to be by fan made concepts, leaks and rumors, it would be safe to say that Apple's future flagship device has even surpassed the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 in terms of hype. People have a pretty good idea about the Note 8 because they have already seen the Galaxy S8+, but no one has ever seen anything like the iPhone OLED from Apple, given that the rumors are even remotely on track of course. To add to those series of rumors, we have another one for you today and it's a very interesting one to say the least.
The borderless OLED display which will presumably make its debut on an iPhone for the first time ever, poses one great problem which had earlier plagued (and still continues to plague) the S8 and S8+; there is no place left on the front to incorporate the fingerprint scanner. As the necessary technology for in-screen fingerprint scanners are not ready for mass production yet, Samsung has reportedly decided to go with an old-fashioned fingerprint scanner right at the centre of the Note 8's back. Apple on the other hand, has allegedly, shifted the fingerprint scanner to the iPhone 8's Power button! While Sony had placed the FP scanner at the side of its smartphones before, Power button integration for the security measure would indeed be a first.
