The Oppo Reno Ace was the fastest charging smartphone upon its release late last year, and it’s still at the front of the field today. Now, barely six months later, it looks like a sequel is coming.
Oppo vice-president Brian Shen confirmed the existence of the Oppo Reno Ace 2 on Weibo today, adding that it’s coming in April. The odd machine-translation also seems to suggest that the phone might not be as heavy as its stablemates. Check out a screenshot below.
The news also comes as an Oppo phone (model number PDHM00) swings by the 3C certification website, as spotted by MySmartPrice. The phone is listed as having 65W charging and 5G connectivity. The former in particular would match the charging speed of the original Reno Ace, Oppo Find X2 series, the Realme X50 Pro, and Black Shark 3 Pro, suggesting it’s a flagship.
Hopefully the Oppo Reno Ace 2 picks up where the old one left off — not that there’s much left to improve. Our own Eric Zeman praised the device in his Oppo Reno Ace review, pointing to the ~$500 price tag, 90Hz screen, quad rear camera, and ultra-fast charging as just a few strengths.
In saying so, Eric also lamented the lack of wireless charging, a “bloated” ColorOS, and the lack of a significant IP rating. But some of these downsides might be more than forgivable if Oppo can deliver a competitive price tag once again.
