OPPO confirmed earlier this week that it would be announcing its upcoming Reno product series on April 10 with a promise of "brand-new product concept, design philosophy, and communication model." Ahead of the phone's debut, a new leak may be giving us a glimpse of one aspect of its design that may suit that description, at least from OPPO's perspective.
The OPPO Reno will supposedly have a new type of pop-up selfie camera that looks like a shark's fin. Courtesy of SlashLeaks user DIMITRI12, the leaked images also reveal a dual camera setup on the back and a large cutout on top of the device meant to provide a leg room for the pop-up camera module.
A leaked video also suggests that this is a motorized mechanism which automatically elevates the camera when the user switches to the selfie snapper.
Additionally, some of the leaked renders indicate that the Reno will include a USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Also, since there's no fingerprint sensor on the back, it may be safe to assume that the handset will have an under-display fingerprint reader.
The leaked renders represent OPPO's new approach to a full-screen device sans a display notch, building upon the motorized slider mechanism we've seen on the OPPO Find X last year. Some may consider the supposed Reno design a better alternative to hole-punch displays and even more so to the notch, but it remains to be seen how the market will receive such an unusual structure.
