After Oppo launched its Reno 5G smartphone in Europe last month, the Chinese tech giant is bringing its new future-ready flagship Down Under, along with its 4G brother, the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom.
As the name of the latter may imply, one of the key features of the two new Oppo handsets is the ability to perform a 10x hybrid optical zoom lens with a combination of the phone's 48 MP primary lens, 13 MP periscope telephoto lens, 8 MP wide angle lens, and dual optical image stabilization.
Another part of the charm of the Reno range is the notch-free surface, which enables an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 93.1%. It performs this clever trick with a similar gimmick that can be found in the company's previous one Find X flagship – a pop-up selfie camera.

If you choose the more expensive 5G device, you will of course be one of the first in the country to experience the breakneck speeds (more than one gigabit per second) promised by the new network standard, but only the Telstra 5G network is currently usable.
This puts it square against the will of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, who landed in Australia earlier this week, although the competitor of the Korean company is currently only available with Telstra plans and has not received specific details for a regular handset release.

The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom is also available from 11 June for a fee of $ 1,199, and – similar to its 5G brother / sister – comes with the option to redeem a pair of Bose SoundSport Free wireless earphones worth $ 299.95 (even while supplies last).
