The device, simply called Reno, is the firm's latest line-up that is aimed to compete with other flagships in the market, with its major selling point being its distinct selfie mechanism, powerful processor, and its overall design.

The Reno is offerred in two flavors: the standard version and the high-end version dubbed Reno 10x Zoom Edition. Both differs in specs - the first, made to be cheaper, features a 6.4-inch AMOLED display and is powered by a Snapdragon 710 chipset, while the other features a larger 6.6-inch AMOLED display and is powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset.
