Oppo Reno 6 series featuring the Reno 6 and the Reno 6 Pro 5G is slated to launch in India today. While the Chinese consumer electronics company will be launching two smartphones, the upcoming series will include three phones. It can be recalled that Oppo launched only one phone in the Reno 5 series in January.
Regrettably, the popular phone maker doesn’t plan to launch the top-end Reno series phone, dubbed the Reno 6 Pro+ in the country. Aside from that, the company is also gearing up to launch the Enco X truly wireless earbuds at the launch event, according to BGR. Oppo launched the Reno 6 series in May in its home country, China.
While there are negligible differences between the three Reno 6 phones, the steeply-priced Reno 6 Pro+ will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor. The company’s decision to not bring the most expensive Reno 6 series phone to India is quite unusual. Last year, the company failed to successfully launch the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro in the country.
Aside from the Reno 6 Pro+, Oppo has still not announced the Find X3 series in India, although it launched globally about five months ago. The popular handset maker is likely to divulge more details about their decision during the upcoming event
