Users will be able to take Android 10 for a spin if they're on Sprint or T-Mobile, or if they're rocking an unlocked phone . After launching the program in the US and in Korea -- it already sent out the same notice to users in its native country -- Samsung will reportedly roll it out in Europe, as well.

Information about the upcoming Oppo Reno Ace is starting to pile up, most of it delivered by Oppo 's Vice President, Brian Shen. Brian Shen didn't go into details, but he did mention that the SuperVOOC fast charging will cap at a Moreover, the phone will enter mass production as early as next month

As teased last month, Oppo's latest flagship phone, the Reno Ace, is unveiled today. We already knew about the device's 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 feature which charges its 4,000mAh battery in just 30 minutes, thus setting an impressive record in the industry. What's surprising is perhaps the Gundam 40th anniversary edition Reno Ace: only 30,000 of these special units will be available, and both the phone and packaging come in matching designs that pay homage to the RX-78-2. I mean, just look at that cute protection case.

The phone itself shares many traits with the OnePlus 7T from next door, namely Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855+ chipset, a silky smooth 90Hz AMOLED screen (6.5 inches, 2,400 x 1,080 resolution, "waterdrop" notch), in-display fingerprint reader, a 48-megapixel main camera (but f/1.7 instead of f/1.6), UFS 3.0 fast storage and stereo speakers. The quad camera on the back also features a 13-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto camera, an 8-megapixel 116-degree ultra-wide camera and a 2-megapixel monochrome camera. Oppo seems to be quite proud of its video stabilization tech which supports up to 60fps at 1080p, and you can also achieve 5x hybrid zoom with video recording.

Oppo has announced that its Oppo Reno Ace will offer 65W fast charging when it launches next month. But how fast is it? Update, September 17, 2019 (3:31AM ET): We already know that the Oppo Reno Ace will feature 64W fast charging , likely making it the fastest charging phone around.

Oppo has announced the latest phone in its increasingly diversified Reno range of flagship phones , the Reno Ace . The Ace ’s truly unique feature is its breakthrough fast charging . Oppo was already the leader here with its Lamborghini- edition Find X, but the Reno Ace ’s 65W SuperVOOC steps it up

Oppo has taken one step further by positioning the Reno Ace as a gaming-centric smartphone. The 135Hz touch sampling rate helps gamers aim and respond more accurately, while the "4D" vibration uses a linear motor to provide more immersive haptic feedback -- this will apparently be supported by several major titles. There's also a set of software boosting features and wireless connectivity optimizations to ensure stability. Similarly, Oppo added a layer of composite carbon fiber between the chipset and the vapor cooling chamber, which supposedly triples the heat conductivity to maximize CPU and GPU load. But that's as far as gaming features go; there's no shoulder button, built-in fan nor dual-screen accessory.

The Reno Ace will be available in China starting from October 17th, with the 8GB RAM plus 128GB storage version asking for 2,999 yuan (about $420), going all the way up to 12GB RAM with 256GB storage for 3,799 yuan ($534). The Gundam edition packs 256GB storage but with just 8GB RAM, so it's only asking for 3,599 yuan ($506) which is 400 yuan ($56) more than the standard version, and pre-orders start on October 21st ahead of the November 11th launch.

For those who want to take things up a notch, Oppo is offering an optional Unicorn Gundam edition C1 attachable gamepad for 299 yuan (about $42), with pre-orders starting on October 10th ahead of the same launch day as the Gundam edition Reno Ace.

Oppo’s Reno 2 has a 'sharkfin' pop-up camera and decent zoom on the cheap .
It's a hard time to launch a smartphone. We're clinging onto our phones for longer and innovation has slowed to crawl -- irrespective of what companies are telling us. A lot of us either want the greatest, latest phone, or simply want a good deal. Oppo's Reno 2 is in the latter camp, attempting to steal away would-be Honor and middleweight Samsung phone shoppers. Why should you take a chance on the Reno 2? It might be its stylish, all-screen looks, or it might be the cameras. In this age of dual, tri- or quad-camera flagship phones, Oppo has tried to distill down the best features into a cheaper device, but it might have watered it down a little too much.
