After introducing the Reno4 smartphone in the Kenyan market, OPPO Kenya has opened up pre-orders for the device and the OPPO smartwatch in partnership with the e-commerce store, Jumia Kenya.
During the pre-order period, which will run from September 21st till September 28th, customers who order for the Reno4, which is retailing at 39,999 shillings will also receive a pair of free OPPO Enco W11 wireless earphones and an OPPO branded water flask.
Customers who pre-order for the OPPO Watch that is retailing at Ksh23,999 will also get a free OPPO branded backpack.
In addition, customers can also pre-order both the Reno4 and OPPO Watch at a cost of Ksh60,000 and still receiving the W11 wireless earphones, branded water flask, and a branded backpack.
Muthoni Wachira, Head of Communications & Projects at OPPO Kenya said, “The Reno4 has presented our consumers with the opportunity to bring the best out of themselves by incorporating this device into their lives, whether as creatives, professionals or for personal use. We believe that this pre-order offer enables the majority of our consumers to get a good deal before the Reno4 and the OPPO Watch start selling at our brand shops and dealerships across the country.”
The new device, which has already been launched in other markets globally comes with additional features from its predecessor, the Reno3, which include the AI Colour Portrait for both the front and rear cameras – a feature that now also applies for videos, monochrome video capture, three new stabilization modes under the Ultra Steady Video 3.0 and an Electronic Image Stabilization algorithm to the front camera with Front Steady Video.
As the first smartwatch introduced by the smartphone company, the OPPO Watch is raising the bar with its signature design, built-in cellular connectivity, health & fitness features, fast charging, and Dual-Chip Endurance System.
The Reno4 also comes with touch-free interactions for the first time, powered by an AI-enhanced Smart Sensor and AI algorithm to secure the phone from peeping eyes, while allowing users to control their phone with a wave.
“The Reno Series has always been one of the pioneers in smartphone camera technology and with Reno4 we’re proud to continue innovating with new portrait shooting and videography features that empower our users to truly stand out. From innovative imaging technology to the futuristic touch-free interaction, and from stunning designs to VOOC Flash Charging, we’ve walked the extra mile,” added Muthoni Wachira.
The Reno4 strikes a delicate balance between a slim and sleek design. Equipped with a 6.4-inch Dual Punch-hole Display, Reno4 comes in at 7.7mm thick so that it fits in the hand and pocket easily, while it’s lightweight at 165g, ensuring that your hand won’t be fatigued while holding Reno4.
The device comes with two colors: Galactic Blue and Space Black, with OPPO introducing a new design technique dubbed ‘Reno Glow’ for the Reno series. This is an innovative back cover design that combines a matte fingerprint-resistant texture with subtle glittery details, which gives the Galactic Blue color a more vibrant and glossier look. Reno Glow adds a shimmer to Galactic Blue’s silver and blue color gradients when reflected under the light, achieving a dazzling effect. Together with looming OPPO monogram at the bottom, which adds a sense of mystery, these colors offer a more premium appearance and great in-hand feel.
