The price of the Oppo Reno starts at Yuan 2,999 (around Rs 30,000) and Yuan 3,999 (around Rs 40,000) for the Reno 10x Zoom in China so it can be assumed that the company will offer the phone around the same price bracket in India.Oppo Reno sports a 6.4-inch AMOLED display and the Reno 10x Zoom features a 6.6-inch AMOLED display.
