Highlights
  • Oppo Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 were launched in China last month
  • Both Reno phones in India would come with MediaTek SoCs
  • Oppo Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 have received Iris Purple colour in China

Oppo Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 India launch date has been tipped online. Both new Oppo phones were initially launched in China last month. However, the Reno 8 Pro in India is said to be a rebadged Reno 8 Pro+ that debuted in the Reno 8 series, with a different list of specifications. Separately, Oppo has introduced an Iris Purple colour of the Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 in China. The Reno 8 Pro was originally available in Encounter Blue and Night Tour Black colours, while the Reno 8 arrived in Clear Sky Blue and Night Tour Black shades.

Citing a person familiar with the development, MySmartPrice reports that the Oppo Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 will launch in India on July 18. The Reno 8 Pro is said to be not the model that was launched in China last month and instead the rebranded version of the Reno 8 Pro+. This suggests that the Pro variant may carry the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max SoC — not the newly launched Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

A previous report suggested that alongside the Reno 8 phones, Oppo may launch the Oppo Pad Air in the country next month. The Reno 8 Pro is also speculated to come with Oppo's proprietary MariSilicon X imaging chip. The latest report is, however, not giving any such details.

In China, Oppo has introduced the Iris Purple colour variant of the Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8.

Both Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 with the new colour option are currently available for pre-orders in the country.
