The Oppo Reno12 series is tipped to feature a custom Sony sensor.

Oppo Reno12 series tipped. Oppo appears to be working on the next iteration of its popular Reno smartphone lineup – enter the Reno12 series. While details remain scant this early, a notable Chinese tipster has revealed one particularly interesting morsel of information: the Reno12 phones will feature a custom Sony camera sensor, signaling potentially major improvements to image quality.

Reno11 Recap

As a quick refresher, Oppo launched the most recent Reno11 lineup in November 2023, comprised of the Reno11, Reno11 Pro, and Reno11 F models. The trio sported capable 50MP or 64MP main cameras paired with lower-resolution auxiliary sensors. Reviews found the phones captured good shots, though low-light photography was average.

Most configurations opted for mid-range processors like MediaTek’s Dimensity 8200 or the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 platform. Performance and battery life impressions were positive overall, though their designs blended into the mid-range crowd.

This brings us to the Reno12 series. Well-known Chinese tipster Smart Pikachu claims on Weibo that Oppo has co-developed a custom Sony camera sensor specifically for the next Reno line.

While specifics are unavailable, this hints at more advanced imaging. Sony sensors are regarded for qualities like dynamic range and low light capabilities so that expectations will be high for the Reno12 cameras.

By tapping Sony’s sensor expertise and customizing the hardware to Oppo’s needs, the Reno12 phones could capture substantially more detail, light, or data to empower advanced processing. Night, portrait, zoom, and video modes may show particular improvement.

What Else to Expect

Beyond the mystery sensor, the Reno12 series will likely stick to the usual playbook of polished designs, large AMOLED displays with fast 120Hz refresh rates, big batteries, and super fast charging. 5G connectivity is assured.

On the performance front, processors may get modest bumps, with rumblings of a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 possibly powering a premium model. The software will be the newest ColorOS out of the gate.

Of course, official details remain unavailable. But with Oppo gearing up its 2024 Reno portfolio, camera quality looks set to take center stage as a key selling point when the Reno12 series launches later this year. The custom Sony sensor could give mid-range shooters a run for their money.
