You might be wondering about OPPO’s upcoming new phones in the Philippines, the Reno 2 and 2F. Both may be of the same series, but they seem to confuse some people. We break things down on what you should note about these two phones and how they differ from each other.
The OPPO Reno 2 series of phones, slated to launch later this week, is getting a buzz in cyberspace. With these two phones arriving in our shores, you should keep in mind which is which.
On the design side, both seem to look alike, both at the front and the back, until you pop up those front cameras. The Reno 2 has a shark fin-like mechanism that elevates the camera with a wedge-like casing. The Reno 2F has that standard pop-up elevation seen on most phones that are on the market today.
