OPPO on Tuesday announced the availability of the Reno5 F in Kenya.
This is the latest iteration in the Reno5 series and will be available for Sh32,000. The phone is available through OPPO brand shops, authorised dealers and e-commerce platforms – Jumia, Kilimall and Masoko, at Sh32,000.
The OPPO Reno5 F joins the OPPO Reno5 that was launched in the country last month and is available in stores for around Sh42,000.
The Reno5 F is the affordable variant but still comes with some decent specs. It has a 6.43-inch display with a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels.
The Reno5 F is packaged in a simple, yet elegantly thin design that uses OPPO’s new Flowing Light Design concept to introduce two dazzling colours.
Muthoni Wachira, Head of Communications & Projects at OPPO Kenya said, “Reno5 F is the culmination of both user feedback and the extensive research conducted on the latest technology that’s being deployed on Reno5 F. The 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 ensures that Reno5 F is a great accompaniment to your life.”
“Just as has been tradition with OPPO smartphones, the Reno5 F will definitely bring out the creativity in its users with new video capturing features that put the power of expert video productions in the palm of your hands,” she added.
Powering the Reno5 F is the MediaTek Helio P95 processor that is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space. This is standard for any Reno device and it is good to see OPPO has maintained it for the cheaper model. The phone comes with Android 11 out of the box with ColorOS 11.1.
Speaking on the launch, Muthoni Wachira, Head of Communications & Projects at OPPO Kenya said, “Reno5 F is the culmination of both user feedback and the extensive research conducted on the latest technology that’s being deployed on Reno5 F. The 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 ensures that Reno5 F is a great accompaniment to your life.”
For the cameras, the OPPO Reno5 F has a 48MP Main sensor at the back. This is part of a quad-camera setup with the rest being an 8MP ultrawide lens, 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the Reno5 F has a single 32MP sensor housed in a punch hole cut out.
Reno5 F offers security and privacy features that are strictly designed to retrieve your data or keep it away from prying eyes. For those people that have a tendency of misplacing their phones, which also includes their personal media and files OPPO’s Private Safe offers a peace of mind.
Through Private Safe you can access HeyTap Cloud to retrieve your personal data from your lost phone. Or, if you’re frequently loaning your phone to family and friends you might have had moments when you’d wished to protect the content of your app from curious friends snooping in on your personal data.
With App Lock, you’ll have full control over which apps can or can’t be accessed by other users so you can “lend your mobile phone but not your secrets.”
If you’re connected to a projector or TV screen and mirroring your phone to share a presentation with colleagues, the last thing you want popping up on the screen is a personal and embarrassing message. Screencast Privacy Shield limits banner notifications and even drawer messages, while also filtering out messages that shouldn’t be mirrored on screen.
