Introduction

Oppo just announced the first three of the Reno5 family, and it’s likely to be a big family. How do we know that? There are a total of eight Reno4s in our database, and this is one of the ones we present to you today – Reno4 Z 5G.

Oppo Reno4 Z 5G review

The most affordable of the 5G-enabled 4th-gen Renos, the Z 5G, sells for € 300 – that’s less than half the official price of the Reno4 Pro 5G and about two-thirds the price of the Reno4 5G.

The Reno4 Z 5G is powered by a Mediatek Dimensity 800 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 765Gs in the other two. Still, that’s not really cause for concern – a close relative of the SoC, 800U we got to see recently, performed admirably. Another moderately polarizing bit could be the 6.57 inch LCD. OLED lovers may spot the choice of panel technology, but this one comes with a 120Hz refresh rate. Which brings us to the next point – a 4,000 mAh battery with a 120Hz LCD? It sounds a little disturbing, but we’ll see.

Three proper cameras and three kinds of cameras found their way to the Reno4 Z 5G. There’s a 48MP primary device on the back along with an 8MP ultra-wide, and then you get a 2MP macro module and a 2MP device for depth sense. Another of them keeps company with the 16MP selfie camera in a pill-shaped cutout in the upper left corner of the screen.

Oppo Reno4 Z 5G unboxing

For the 4 Z 5G, Oppo opted for the usual Reno presentation – a t-shirt holding the white cardboard box. The content is also pretty standard, although the 18W adapter is a bit at the lower end of the power spectrum – it is certainly not the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0. If you can put a positive spin on it, it would be that the USB-A-to-C cable is not proprietary, unlike the higher wattage systems.

Also included is a set of earbuds with a 3.5mm plug – the Reno4 Z 5G is nicely old-school in this regard, unlike the other 2 5G-compatible Reno4s. You will find another useful accessory in the bundle, is a protective case, a transparent silicone.
