After releasing the Oppo Find X2 and X2 Pro in March this year, Oppo shifted its focus to the Reno series. The Reno series conquered the world last year with powerful smartphones and competitive prices. For that reason, it makes sense for the company to keep the Find X series as a premium smartphone lineup while the Reno series comes for those looking for a more affordable experience. On June 5, the company announced the Oppo Reno 4 and Reno 4 Pro 5G boasting the 5G-enabled Snapdragon 765G SoC. Since then, there has been a lot of speculation pointing to the launch of the aforementioned devices in India and other regions. Reno 4 was certified in Thailand last month suggesting the launch in South East Asia. Now, Reno 4 accumulated a foot set of certifications which confirms its launch in SEA and also in the global markets.
The Oppo Reno 4 Pro will be slightly different
The handset already got TUV Rheinland approval, followed by Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance. The Reno 4 carries the CPH2089 model number while the Reno 4 Pro carries the CPH2091 serial. These certifications are part of an important process that happens before a smartphone is launched outside of China. Once that a device gets these important certifications, we can pretty much conclude that it is pretty near of reaching the shores.

According to the listing, both Reno 4 and Reno 4 Pro feature dual-mode Wi-Fi (2.4GHz / 5GHz) and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity. Moreover, both smartphones ruin with Android 10-based ColorOS 7.2. If you recall, the ColorOS 7.2 version is a new branch of Oppo’s software skin. The new version came exclusively with the Reno 4 series. According to recent rumors, the Reno 4 will be similar to its Chinese sibling. However, the Pro variant will have its display refresh rate bumped from 90Hz to 120Hz.
Reno 4 and 4 Pro specifications
The Reno 4 comes with a 6.43-inch display with a pill-shaped cutout for dual-selfie camera setup. The Oppo Reno 4 Pro has a larger 6.55-inch AMOLED display with a single punch-hole camera. Under the hood, both handsets boast Snapdragon 765G SoC with up to 12GB of RAM. On the camera department, we have triple-camera arrays for both handsets featuring a main 48MP sensor. The punch-hole setups are powered by a primary 32MP sensor. There is a 4,000mAh battery keeping the lights on.
Unfortunately, there is still no official word from Oppo regarding the launch of the new handsets outside of China. However, the certifications alone are enough to ensure that they will eventually reach the West.
