OPPO Kenya has announced it will be bringing the Reno4 to Kenya this month.
The Reno4 was announced back in June and has been selling in other markets including its homeland China.
The Reno4 was launched alongside the Reno4 Pro.
Both devices are powered by a Snapdragon 765G chipset and have some key inclusions to guarantee their release just a few months after the launch of the Reno3. The chip is 5G-capable, and it will be interesting to see the device make its way here bearing in mind Kenya doesn’t have 5G systems yet. It is also an interesting development because previous Reno phones, including the Reno3, have always used MediaTek chips.
The Pro model, for instance, has a curved 90 Hz AMOLED display.
Both have large cells (4020 mAh and 4000 mAh for the Reno 4 and Pro, respectively) and support a ridiculous 65W charging (you will get 60% in 15 minutes).
As has been the case, Reno devices have great cameras, and you get the same thing here. They have three lenses on the back with a main 48 MP snapper. The Pro model has an optically stabilized 48 MP shooter, which is a first for the Reno line.
The rest of the specs have been summarized below:

The Reno3 is still selling locally. In essence, the Reno4 series is more than the successor of the Reno3 series and does not replace it per se.
Both the Reno3 and Reno4 will coexist alongside each other. We have not seen this kind of a model from the Chinese manufacturer, but we guess the tactic will work for the company as the market keeps getting competitive.
Lastly, pricing details have not been revealed yet.
