Oppo Reno 7 Pro could be equipped with Sony IMX766 50-megapixel camera sensor according to a tipster. Digital Chat Station says that the Oppo Reno 7 series will have better camera performance than the Oppo Reno 6 and Oppo Reno 6 Pro. Oppo Reno 6 Pro+, Reno 6 Pro with Qualcomm Snapdragon 870G, and Oppo Find X3 Pro use Sony IMX766 sensor. According to a report, this could be the same smartphone that was to be developed in collaboration with Kodak.
A post by Digital Chat Station on Weibo details an Oppo smartphone with model number PFDM00, which is said to be the Oppo Reno 7 Pro by GSMArena, which is claimed to have a Sony IMX766 50-megapixel camera sensor. This will be a major upgrade over the Oppo Reno 6 Pro.
It is to be noted that the comparison has been done with the Oppo 6 Pro Edition which is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. Oppo launched Oppo Reno 6 Pro in India in July. This variant gets a 1/2.0-inch 64-megapixel OmniVision OV64B sensor with 0.7-micron pixels. In comparison, the Sony IMX766 is a 1/1.56-inch sensor with 1.0-micron native pixels. Native pixels can expand to 2.0 microns with 4-in-1 binning, and the sensor supports DOL-HDR all-pixel autofocus.
As mentioned, the alleged Oppo Reno 7 Pro could be the same phone that was being developed by the Chinese company with US-based photography company Kodak, GSMArena reported citing an earlier post by Digital Chat Station . Reportedly, the phone aims to pay homage to the classic Kodak camera design. It was also reported that the alleged phone will be equipped with a Sony IMX766 50-megapixel sensor along with a 13-megapixel 2x telephoto camera and a 3-megapixel microscope camera like the Oppo Find X3 Pro flagship smartphone.
