COPY LINKAD Loading … Close Oppo R17 Pro’s SuperVOOC flash charging review: Nothing like it!center_img Oppo upped its game in India with the launch of Reno-series and the Chinese smartphone giant is all set to bring the latest Reno 2 smartphone to the market. Oppo Reno 2 will bring various upgrades to the original Reno, focusing primarily on the camera for all the enthusiasts out there.Oppo Reno 2 marks several firsts for the company, most importantly offering a quad camera setup. Packed within that quad-camera setup is a bundle of innovative features to boost mobile photography techniques effortlessly. Oppo is already boasting the 20X zoom capabilities of the Reno 2 smartphone alongside Ultra Dark Mode and more.”In line with the legacy of introducing innovative technology, the Reno Series was launched as the catalyst for OPPO’s smartphone and creative development, the soon-to-be-launched OPPO Reno 2 Series will take this creativity one step further as it will challenge users to ditch clichéd photography techniques in favour of never seen before camerawork,” Oppo announced.According to the company, Oppo Reno 2 supports 20x digital zoom and 5x hybrid zoom, which will be clearer than the former. But the capability of zooming past the regular levels is an achievement we’ve witnessed in some phones like Huawei P30 Pro. Oppo Reno 2 will be among the few handsets with cameras that can capture the subjects from a distance. Oppo Reno 2 launch in India confirmedTwitter/OppoOppo also talks highly about the 48MP sensor in use and some nifty features such as Ultra Dark Mode and Ultra Steady Video. If you’re into short film making or like to capture videos more than stills, the Ultra Steady Video looks promising. It is expected to give clear and smooth videos, something that can be matched to that of action cameras.Ever since Google’s Night Sight picked up the pace, OEMs have been trying to get better at it. Oppo doesn’t want to be left out, so there’s Ultra Night Mode in the Reno 2. Oppo is able to deliver bright images in dark environments using software dynamic exposure adjustments. The processing is also done faster with the help of an integrated NPU.Oppo Reno 2’s camera is only a significant part of what the handset is going to be. The teaser confirms the side-swing “shark-fin” pop-up camera, allowing for a full-view screen. All four cameras will be arranged vertically and we can expect at least one variant with gradient finish on the back. Oppo Reno 2 launch in India confirmedOppoAs per rumours, Oppo Reno 2 will sport a 6.43-inch AMOLED display, a 48MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 13MP telephoto sensor and a 2MP monochrome lens. The handset is expected to sport a 4,065mAh battery with VOOC fast charging support.Oppo has sent out invites for the Reno 2 launch event to be held in New Delhi on August 28, where we expect to know more details about the phone.last_img read more

No major breakthrough in dialogue

Photo: BSSRuling camp and opposition leaders on Thursday completed their first round of dialogue, but without any thaw in the country’s political deadlock over holding of the new general elections in a free and fair manner.After the talks at Ganabhaban, none of the participants reported any progress in most critical issues, especially formation of a poll-time government and release of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia.”Our leaders raised complaints and relevant issues. We, however, didn’t get any special solution over there,” Kamal Hossain, leader of Jatiya Oikya Front, told newsmen at his Bailey Road residence around 11:45pm.On the Ganabhaban compound, ruling Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader termed the dialogue successful.Opposition BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir twice said his party is not satisfied with the discussion. “Our [demonstration] programme will continue,” he told newsmen.Leaders of ruling Awami League-led 14-party alliance and Jatiya Oikya Front led by Kamal Hossain join for a dialogue at Ganbhaban in the city on Thursday night.

Premier Hasina made opening remarks but did not touch on the pending issues.The demands include installation of a neutral interim government, dissolution of parliament, reconstitution the election commission, release of all the political prisoners, deployment of army and cancellation of the move to use EVM for holding the next polls in fair and acceptable manner.Ruling Awami League-led14-party alliance coordinator Mohammad Nasim enters Ganabhaban to join talks with Jatiya Oikya Front leaders on 1 November.

We didn’t frame those cases against her, rather the caretaker government did it.” the AL said.Claiming that the two sides — AL-led 14-party alliance and Jatiya Oikya Front led by Kamal Hossain — agreed on a few issues and they would hold further talks after 8 November.”If they want to join the talks, the prime minister’s door is open and such talks may be held after 8 November,” the AL leader added.Kamal Hossain said there was no progress except one issue — holding public rallies without any disturbances created by the law enforcement.”There will be no barrier to holding meetings and rallies. The prime minister has already asked the law enforcement in this regard,” Subrata Chowdhury, executive president of Gano Forum and leader of the Front, said while reading out the formal statement.About the allegations of concocted cases, both Quader and Subrata said the coalition leaders raised it with the prime minister who asked them to submit a list for taking necessary steps.Jatiya Oikya Front chief Kamal Hossain in front of Ganabhaban to join talks with 14-Party leaders, led by prime minister Sheikh Hasina on 1 November.
