Oppo Reno 5 and 5 Pro
Both the Reno 5 and Reno 5 Pro are identical at the rear but can be differentiated based on the display panel. The former has a flat-screen, while the latter has a dual-curved display like many premium flagships out there. A highlight of the design is the new Reno Glow 2.0 design. The camera is hit and the top edge glows in the dark, as shown below.
This official Reno 5 has a 6.43-inch Full-HD + AMOLED panel, while this Reno 5 Pro includes a larger 6.55-inch Full-HD + AMOLED panel. Both variants feature a 90Hz refresh rate also 180Hz touch response rate. There’s an in-display fingerprint sensor at the bottom also a punched hole, covering a 32MP selfie camera, on both variants.
The rear quad camera module is controlled by a 64MP (f / 1.7) primary sensor on both phones. You’ll find an 8MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP depth sensor to complete the setup.
Speaking of what’s under the hood, the Snapdragon 765G powers the Reno 4 (the same as last year’s Reno 4), and the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset powers the 5 Pro variant in China. Both models are paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of built-in storage. You are running the latest ColorOS 11 skin based on Android 11.
As for the battery, there is only a slight difference in the size of the battery. The Reno 5 includes a 4,300 mAh battery, while the Reno 5 Pro has a 4,350 mAh battery, both of which support 65 W SuperVOOC charging. The standard variant could be a delight for users as it includes a headphone jack. 3.5mm, while the Pro variant does not. Both variants have a USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5, NFC, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi support as well.
Oppo Reno 5 Pro+
Oppo did not detail the Reno 5 Pro + at today’s event. Instead, the company decided to keep this variant as a Christmas surprise. It only showed the design and confirmed that the Snapdragon 865 (and not the latest Snapdragon 888) will power the smartphone. It will also support 65W SuperVOOC charging.
