The Reno 10 series was launched in China in May, and now Oppo is taking the family on a global tour. There are three models of Renault 10 in total – Vanilla, Pro and Pro+. However, the international vanilla and Pro models differ from their Chinese counterparts only with the Pro+.
Today, we have the international version of Reno10 for review. The changes here are more than the interior and even the design is different from the Chinese name.

The global Reno10 is basically a mid-range device based on the Dimension 7050 chipset. On the contrary, the Chinese model uses the Snapdragon 778G. The International Reno 10 packs a 5,000 mAh battery compared to the Chinese model’s 4,600 mAh, making it 8mm thinner and 185 grams lighter than its counterpart. The international version charges slightly slower at 67W instead of 80W, although we can’t imagine the practical difference being huge.
The International Reno 10 comes with fewer memory options and only goes up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The 12GB/512GB UFS 3.1 tier of the Chinese version isn’t particularly present, but on a positive note, the international version has a microSD card slot for storage expansion. Another thing that the international Reno10 has over its sibling is the stereo speaker setup.
We’ll get into the details again in a moment. But now let’s unlock Oppo Reno10.
The Oppo Reno10 comes in your standard two-piece thick cardboard box. It’s not particularly eye-catching, but it’s very sturdy and has a plastic internal hinge to hold the phone in place, so we can’t complain.
There isn’t much in terms of accessories. You won’t get a case or anything extra, but the phone does at least come with a decent USB Type-A to Type-C cable and a 67W SuperVOOC charger. The cable is irregular and has extra pins, so if you want to use the Reno10’s full charging speed, you’ll have to keep an eye on it.
