Weekly poll results: Oppo Reno7 Pro gets a warm welcome, vanilla and SE versions not so much


Oppo announced the Reno7 series last week and the trio went on sale in China on Friday. There is no official timeline for when the new models will be released globally, but it should happen early next year (price leak for India suggested launch in January). By then, the phone reviews should have been released.

But first impressions aren’t that hot, especially for phones without “Pro” in their name. Even this one has hard questions to answer regarding pricing. Let’s take a closer look at the results of last week’s poll and what the commentators had to say.

Obtaining a third of the votes cast, the Oppo Reno7 Pro 5G stands out as apparently the only viable option of the trio. Although their screens are mostly similar, the Pro is the only model with a large sensor (with 1.0 µm pixels instead of 0.7 µm) and the only one with stereo speakers.

We haven’t seen what the Dimensity 1200-Max can do, but the vanilla version of the chip outperforms the Snapdragon 778G in graphics performance, while their processors are mostly equal. Additionally, the Pro has UFS 3.1 storage (the other two use UFS 2.x), so it should be the fastest phone out of the three.

We are surprised at how much vanilla Oppo Reno7 5G made. We’ve covered several pros of the Pro before, but the displays and batteries are mostly the same, while the price is almost 30% lower. And it’s not like the Reno7 Pro is a powerful camera, even the Snapdragon version of the Reno6 Pro had a telephoto lens (and the same main sensor).

The sensor in question – a Sony IMX766 – is quite popular and has been used in Oppo’s Reno6 series, vivo’s X70, several Realme GT models and a couple of OnePlus (9RT and Nord 2). Some of them also use the Dimensity 1200, so buyers would have plenty of models to choose from.

Speaking of sensors, the Reno7 and Pro are the first to use Sony’s new IMX709 sensor, which has been dubbed “cat’s eye” for its ability to see in the dark. This is an RGBW sensor (which means some pixels don’t have a filter, which allows them to pick up more light). This is combined with DOL-HDR hardware and an internal system developed by Oppo to process RGBW images. However, commentators weren’t convinced by the marketing around this new camera, so it will have to prove itself in a review.

This brings us to Oppo Reno7 SE 5G, the cheapest and least capable of the three. It seems people were more concerned with having the right specs and not saving a few bucks. Unfortunately for the SE, most people would rather have an older Reno6 model instead of the SE (well, the series is only six months older).

The Oppo Reno7 Pro will be successful, but the outlook for its siblings is not so good. Vanilla Reno7 might do the trick on the cheap, but there seems to be a mismatch between what people want and what Oppo has put together. Also, the quick release of the shot starts to tire people out, especially when the new model isn’t clearly better than the old one.
