The Reno series of smartphones from Oppo is renowned for its excellent cameras, and this year the business revealed its most recent Reno 10 lineup for India in 2023. At a gathering in New Delhi, Oppo unveiled the Oppo Reno 10 5G, Oppo Reno 10 Pro+ 5G, and the Oppo Enco Air 3 Pro TWS Earbuds. This article discusses our initial thoughts on the Oppo Reno 10 5G.
The middle child in the new Reno 10 series in India is the Oppo Reno 10 Pro 5G. It shares some of the hardware and features of its more expensive sister, the Oppo Reno 10 Pro 5G+, and a similar appearance.
A triple camera arrangement, a curved edge display, and the most recent version of ColorOS 13.1 are all included in it. The OnePlus Nord 3, iQoo Neo 7 Pro 5G, and OnePlus 11R 5G all recently released devices, are some of the ones the gadget competes against. Here are our initial thoughts on the brand-new smartphone.

Design and Color Options in India of Oppo Reno 10 5G
The smartphone will come in two color options: Ice Blue and Silvery Grey with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and another model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The brand has not disclosed the price, as the phone will be available on July 20.
The Box of Oppo Reno includes all necessary accessories. You also receive a clear casing, some literature, and the SIM eject utility. It includes a USB Type-A to Type-C cable and an 80W SuperVOOC charging converter. The color Oppo supplied us is called Glossy Purple and has a glossy texture. For those who want a less dazzling color, there is also Silvery Grey.
The Reno has side rails made of shiny chrome that merge with the rear panel and the display’s curved edges. You can see the volume and power keys on the right, and the USB Type-C charging connector, microphone, speaker grille, and SIM slot are at the bottom. The smartphone’s IR blaster and a second noise-canceling microphone are at its top.
Despite having a glass back makes it a relatively lightweight and compact smartphone. It uses a curved frame and rear panel following conventional design principles. The Reno 10 Pro 5G stands apart from the sea of similarity compared to the number of phones released with a flat frame design. The phone is 7.89mm thick and weighs roughly 185g.
Camera of Oppo Reno 10 5G
It has a matte-finished rear panel that changes color hues according to the angle from which it is seen. The camera module will likely wobble on a table because it sticks out a little.
A 64-megapixel primary camera, a 32-megapixel telephoto camera with a Sony IMX709 sensor, and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera are included in the rear of the Reno 10 5G’s triple camera configuration. Much has stayed the same in the camera UI from what you would expect from an Oppo device.
Oppo claims that the Reno’s display has a 56-degree side curvature, a little less than the 61-degree side curvature of the Realme 11 Pro+ 5G (Review). The Vivo V27 Pro and the Reno 10 Pro 5G both have single-speaker systems, which is unfortunate. It is loud, but the audio is not engaging.
The 6.7-inch curved-edge AMOLED display on the Oppo Reno 10 5G has curved edges and a hole-punch cutout at the top. The highest rated brightness of 950 nits and the 120Hz refresh rate makes it ideal for seamless working even in the daylight.
Watching videos should be a pleasant experience because the display is slick while engaging with the content and is pretty bright. And one of the charms of this phone is fingerprint sensor is on display, which makes it look cool!
Battery, Performance of Oppo Reno 10 5G
Given this smartphone’s size, the Oppo Reno 10 5G’s big 5,000mAh battery is rather impressive. Additionally, it supports the 67W SuperVOOC rapid charging. While the phone operates on Oppo’s ColorOS 13.1, based on Android 13, MediaTek Dimensity 7050 SoC powers it.
The Oppo Reno10 5G has an excellent design and the most necessary features, including a sizable battery with quick charging, a good display, and lots of storage. However, whether or not it will succeed with purchasers will ultimately depend on its pricing.
The Oppo Reno 10 Pro 5G operates on the most recent ColorOS 13.1, based on Android 13.0. Some first-party apps from Oppo’s native App Market, like HotApps, HotGames, and Hot Free Games, as well as a ton of third-party apps, like Josh, ShareChat, Tall Runner 3D, Candy Crush, etc., are all over the user interface.
For the Reno 10 Pro 5G, Oppo has committed to providing two significant Android updates and three years of security updates. Can the Reno 10 Pro 5G still be a well-rounded product even though this is not the segment’s most competitive SoC?
