Oppo silently launches Reno8 T and Reno8 T 5G
Oppo released the midrangers Reno8 T and Reno8 T 5G without much fanfare. The devices were simply uploaded on the Vietnamese website of the company, and online retailers followed through with their listings.
The LTE-only smartphone has a Mediatek chipset and a 100MP camera, while the 5G version has a Qualcomm chip and a 108MP main shooter.

This smartphone brings a 6.43” AMOLED with 90Hz refresh rate and FullHD+ resolution. It comes with 180Hz touch sampling rate and Gorilla Glass 5 on top. The 32MP selfie camera sits in the upper left corner inside a punch hole.
There are three more cameras at the back. Oppo doesn't reveal the details of the 100MP main shooter, but if that's its native resolution it would be a first in the industry. The other two units are a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro cam. There is a ring light around the main camera that can double as a customizable notification light.
On the inside, we have a Helio G99 chipset and a single memory option - 8/256GB. There is a microSD slot for extra storage.
The Reno8 T comes with a 5,000mAh battery and SuperVOOC fast charging. The company did not say exactly what the rate is, so we assume it is the lowest possible for this branding - 33W.
Other connectivity options include a 3.5mm audio jack on the bottom, a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.3, and support for all major GNSS. The operating system is ColorOS 13, based on Android 13.
The Reno8 T comes in two colors - basic Starlight Black and leather Sunset Orange. The price is set at VND 8.49 million, which translates to $365. The phone is already up for sale at major online retailers in Vietnam.

The launch of this midranger is a bit more puzzling as Vietnam is not expected to see wide deployment of these networks for a while due to infrastructure limits. However, the phone has a different chipset, better screen and even faster charging so perhaps it will still find its place.
The Reno8 T 5G is powered by a Snapdragon 695 and comes with 8GB RAM.
The 108MP main camera has AF and an f/1.7 aperture and again has two 2MP sensors keeping it company - one is for macro images, the other for depth data. The 32MP selfie at the front is located in a centered punch hole this time.
The Reno8 T 5G 6.7” is built around a 10-bit OLED display of FullHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate. It has 2.5D curved sides, and according to the official website, can reach up to 950 nits brightness.
The 4,800 mAh battery again comes with SuperVOOC, but this time Oppo revealed the fast charging - it is 67W with the required adapter supplied in the retail box.
The Reno8 T 5G lacks a 3.5 mm audio jack, but ships with the same ColorOS 13 out of the box.
Oppo Reno8 T 5G is available in Starlight Black and Dawn Gold. The device is up for pre-order at VND 9.9 million, which is about $430. Most Vietnamese stores will bundle the device with a Bluetooth speaker that also works as a nightstand light. Sales in the South-Asian country will begin on February 10.
