The Oppo Reno 12 is seen in a silver shade, while the Oppo Reno 12 Pro appears in a purple colourway. Both phones have glossy, glittery finishes and feature elliptical rear camera modules in the top left corner.

Oppo did not share any other details about the phones. However, in another social media post, the Reno 12 series is teased to “bring you unexpected innovative ways to take photos.” Oppo has also teased the Oppo Enco Air 4 Pro with up to 44 hours of battery life.

The base Oppo Reno 12 model has been tipped to be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 8250 SoC, while the Pro variant is said to carry a MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ chipset. Both handsets are likely to feature 50-megapixel triple rear camera units.
