This is most likely the version that will feature a periscope camera with 10x zoom functionality.

The video in question was first shared by BangGogo, which also shared an image of a Reno series smartphone with triple rear cameras a few days ago.
The leaked case renders and images suggest that the Oppo Reno will feature a pop-up selfie camera that will only lift from one side at an angle. Well, Oppo’s take on the pop-up camera will be marketed as “Shark Fin” selfie camera, at least that’s what trademark listing says. As per a trademark application filed by Oppo before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), the pop-up camera module will reportedly be called Shark Fin. The trademark listing was first spotted by MySmartPrice.
Additionally, alleged camera samples highlighting the low-light photography prowess of the Oppo Reno’s 48-megapixel main camera have also surfaced online. And at first glance, the results look impressive with great depth and dynamic range. The camera samples were shared on Chinese micro-blogging platform Weibo. It appears that Oppo will launch multiple smartphones in the Reno series that will include a Standard Edition, Oppo Reno Lite, Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition and a high-end version powered by the Snapdragon 855, with the last having already been confirmed officially by an Oppo executive.
