Oppo's new Reno Ace can be fully charged in 30 minutes

Oppo has announced the latest phone in its increasingly diversified Reno range of flagship phones, the Reno Ace.

Spec-wise, this device is very similar to sister company OnePlus’ excellent new 7T. There’s a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, a 20:9 6.5-inch 1080p display with a small waterdrop notch and a 90Hz refresh rate, and a camera system built around Sony’s ubiquitous 48-megapixel IMX586 sensor.

The Reno Ace gains an extra fourth camera with a monochrome sensor, however, and comes with up to 12GB of RAM.

The Ace’s truly unique feature is its breakthrough fast charging. Oppo was already the leader with its Lamborghini-edition Find X, but the Reno Ace’s 65W SuperVOOC steps it up further.

The phone’s 4,000mAh dual-cell battery can be charged from 0 to 100 percent in 30 minutes, according to Oppo, allowing for two hours of usage from just a five-minute charge.

The Reno Ace is coming to China first and starts at 2,999 yuan for 8GB of RAM and 12GB of storage, or 3,799 yuan for 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
