After a number of leaks and rumors, Oppo finally unveiled its highly anticipated Oppo Reno 5 and Reno 5 Pro smartphones in China. During the launch event, Oppo announced that there’s more than just two smartphones coming for this series. Earlier this year, Honor introduced a new range of “Pro Plus” smartphones, and now it seems that more companies are ready to surf in this wave. On December 24, Oppo will unveil the Oppo Reno5 Pro+, it will be the higher version of the series. The new handset has been spotted on the TENAA database with renders and full specifications. The device bears model number PDRM00.
Oppo Reno5 Pro+ specifications
According to the TENAA database, the handset will pack a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels of resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. This is a curved display, something that often differs a premium devices from standard ones. Under the hood, we have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Once again, just the standard version of the chipset, as not many companies are interested in the Plus variant of this chipset. The chipset will be paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of Storage. Interestingly, the 8GB RAM variant passed by GeekBench Benchmark scoring 886 points in the single-core tests. In the multi-core department, it amassed 3,036 points. Besides this variant, TENAA certification also lists an Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. The handset measures 159.2 x 72.5 x 7.99 mm and weighs about 184 grams.
Gizchina News of the week
The Quad-camera setup is quite similar to the other two Reno 5 series smartphones. However, we have a telephoto lens here and two small oval-shaped cutouts in the bottom part. The camera setup is lead by a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor paired with a 16MP ultrawide lens, 13MP telephoto lens, and a 2MP macro shooter. For selfie purposes, the handset has a 32MP punch-hole camera that sits in the top-left corner. The handset runs ColorOS 11 software that runs above Android 11 OS. The handset draws power from a 4,500mAh battery that actually is a combined capacity generated from dual 2,250mAh cells. The reason? Oppo is equipping the handset with its super-fast 65W fast-charging.
Will it come to International markets?
We are curious to see how much the new variant will cost in China. For now, there’s no clue about an International release for the Oppo Reno 5 series. However, this will eventually happen. What is impossible to determine is whether Oppo will launch the exact same devices or bring different variants to International markets. The Global Reno 4 series, for instance, is completely distinct from its Chinese siblings. Anyway, we’re still several months from a global release. For now, let’s keep focus and wait for more news regarding the Chinese launch.
