Not much detail was given in the post other than a cryptic message saying that the new Reno would be your new ‘core’ friend. However, according to alleged leaks previously, the smartphone may well feature the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset; the first on any smartphone.
We previously reported on how the Reno8 was allegedly spotted on Geekbench 5 which details the device’s potential specification. Having the model number PGAM10, the Geekbench 5 listing claimed that it will pack the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 alongside 8GB of RAM.
The device is also expected to sport a 6.55-inch 120Hz OLED display, 4500mAh battery capable of 80W charging and a 50MP primary + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP macro camera setup. At its front, the Reno8 is touted to sport a 32MP camera.
However, do take this information with a grain of salt as nothing is confirmed as of yet. Well, we’ll just have to wait until 23 May to find out whether these specs are true or not.
