The much-awaited Oppo Reno8 series’ release date in the Philippines has been revealed. Oppo Philippines will launch the series soon. The Reno8 series of smartphones created a buzz ahead of its official unveiling. The lineup was also subject to a lot of speculations and leaks. Now, the Reno8 lineup includes a vanilla Reno8 5G and Reno8 Pro 5G model.
Both variants were launched for the global markets back in July. Ahead of their official unveiling, the devices made multiple appearances online in the form of leaks. To recap, the Reno8 Pro Indian variant’s RAM, colors, and storage were tipped earlier this year. The budget-friendly Reno8 Z 5G variant went official earlier this month. If Oppo sticks to its strategy, the Pro variant won’t launch in the Philippines.
Oppo Reno8 Series Release Date In The Philippines
To recap, the company had launched only the Reno7 5G and Reno7 Z 5G in the country. A dedicated microsite for the Reno8 series has gone live on the Oppo Philippines website. Interestingly, the Pro model doesn’t appear on the local website for the upcoming series. So, only the Oppo Reno8 5G and Reno8 Z 5G could launch in the Philippines. However, Oppo could break from the tradition and release the Pro model in the country next month. Likewise, the Reno8 Pro Plus isn’t likely to land in the Philippines.
The variant is exclusively available in the Chinese market. The Reno8 5G series release date in the Philippines is September 1.
