Oppo Reno8 tipped as one of the first phones with Snapdragon 7 Gen 1


According to Digital Chat Station, the Oppo Reno8 series will use Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 and high-end Dimensity chips with the MariSilicon X ISP.

As previously reported, the PGAM10 has a 6.55-inch OLED display with 120 Hz refresh rate, a 50-megapixel main camera (IMX766), an 8-megapixel ultra wide camera, and a 2-megapixel selfie camera. An in-display fingerprint reader and a 4,500 mAh battery with 80W charging are rumoured for the phone.

The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage will power the device. The 8 Gen 1’s fast-but-hot X2 core is expected to be dropped in favour of four Cortex-A710 and four A510 cores in the upcoming chipset. It will have an Adreno 662 graphics processor (the 8 Gen 1 uses the Adreno 730).


How many other Oppo Reno8 models will use the same MediaTek chipset in the near future? The Dimensity 8000/8100 is the closest to the Snapdragon so far, but we don’t know for sure. The A78 and A55 cores are still in use, but a new Mali-G610 GPU has been added. It’s also possible to go with the Dimensity 9000, which comes with X2, A710 and A510 as well as a Mali-G710.

After a year since the first Reno6 models went on sale, Oppo may unveil the Reno8 series next month. PGAM10 could be one of the first devices to feature Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 in this configuration.
