The Reno 10 series was launched in China back in May, and now Oppo is taking the family on an international tour. There are a total of three Reno 10 models – the vanilla, the Pro and the Pro+. However, the international vanilla and Pro models are different from the Chinese counterparts with the Pro+ the only one to stay the same.
Today, we have the Reno10 international version in for review. The changes here go beyond the internals and even the design is different from the Chinese namesake.

The international Reno10 is in its essence a midrange device based on the Dimensity 7050 chipset. In contrast, the Chinese model uses the Snapdragon 778G. The international Reno10 is also slightly thicker at 8mm and heavier at 185 grams than its counterpart, likely due to the inclusion of a bigger 5,000 mAh battery, compared to the 4,600 mAh on the Chinese model. The international version does charge slightly slower at 67W instead of 80W, though we can’t imagine the practical difference is huge.
The international Reno10 also comes with fewer memory options and only goes up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The 12GB/512GB UFS 3.1 high tier of the Chinese version is notably absent, but on a positive note, the international version does have a microSD card for storage expansion. Another thing the international Reno10 has over its sibling is a stereo speaker setup.
We’ll get into the specifics again in a bit. But let’s now unbox the Oppo Reno10.
The Oppo Reno10 comes in your standard two-piece thick cardboard box. It is not particularly eye-catching, but it is quite sturdy and features a plastic internal cradle to hold the phone in place, so we can’t complain.
There isn’t a lot in terms of accessories. You don’t get a case or anything extra, but the phone does at least come with a nice USB Type-A to Type-C cable and a 67W SuperVOOC charger. The cable is not standard and has an extra pin, so you should keep track of it if you want to use the full charging speed of the Reno10.
