Oppo Reno 6 series may have a fourth phone called Reno 6Z 5G

The Oppo Reno 6 series has so far been rumoured to have three phones but there may be a fourth one, as well.

Oppo Reno 6 series is set for launch on May 27. The launch is scheduled to take place in China, and there are likely three phones that Oppo will unveil. They are the Reno 6 Pro+, the Reno 6 Pro, and the Reno 6. However, a fourth Reno 6 series phone has surprisingly emerged on the NBTC certification website of Thailand, and I think it is not going to accompany the other three at least at the upcoming China launch.

The Oppo Reno 6Z 5G is what this fourth smartphone in the series may be called if we go by the listings on Thailand's NBTC and Malaysia's SIRIM regulatory websites. The model number for this phone is CPH2237. But apart from this, there is nothing else in terms of specifications. We know there is going to be 5G support on this phone, because of, well, its name, but even then, the chipset is unspecified at this point. The other three phones in the series will use a mix of MediaTek and Qualcomm chipsets, and that is why it is difficult to make a guess.

The Reno 6Z 5G seems like a successor to the Reno 5Z 5G, which arrived earlier this year in Singapore. It is a rebranded F19 Pro+ 5G with slower charging and support for NFC for some Asian markets, which makes us believe the upcoming Reno 6Z 5G will also be a rebrand of an existing phone. Since Oppo has not yet launched a successor to the F19 Pro+ 5G, I am not sure what existing phone this may be. A few specifications of the Reno 6Z 5G would otherwise have helped.

But the information about the other three phones in the series, the Reno 6 Pro+, Reno 6 Pro, and the Reno 6 is abundant. The Reno 6 Pro+ may use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor inside, according to some leaks. This comes after a different set of leaks previously said the Snapdragon 888 chipset could power the Reno 6 Pro+. The Oppo Reno 6 Pro, on the other hand, is said to come with the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor, which is the company's top-highest chipset right now. And finally, the Reno 6 may rock a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor. All three phones are said to come with 65W fast charging.

We will find out whether the new Reno 6Z will accompany the rest of the phones at the launch tomorrow, and if it will, what it will bring to the table.
