Now, it seems like Oppo has made a decision to clean up its portfolio as well. While Reno models have started becoming official, the company is yet to launch the successor of the Oppo Find X that was launched a year ago.

With the launch of Reno lineup, it wasn't clear which series will be the company's flagship series as the Oppo now has three series - R-series, Find-series and Reno-series.

After the launch of the OPPO Reno brand and the new smartphones the company's Global Vice President Shen Yiren had held a conference wherein he had an interview in which he had stated some interesting new changes regarding the current OPPO R series smartphone line-up, suggests a new Chinese report.
