The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G launched in China early in December last year and comes in two configurations. The 8GB + 128GB variant is priced at CNY 3,399 (roughly Rs. 38,200) and the 12GB + 256GB option is priced at CNY 3,799 (roughly Rs. 42,700). The Oppo phone is offered in three colour options: Aurora Blue, Moonlight Night, and Starry Night.
The specifications for the Indian variant of the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G are expected to be the same as the Chinese variant. The dual-SIM (Nano) Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G runs on Android 11 with ColorOS 11.1 on top. It features a 6.55-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,400 pixels) OLED curved display with a 90Hz refresh rate, 92.1 percent screen-to-body ratio, and 402ppi pixel density. Under the hood, the phone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC, coupled with ARM G77 MC9 GPU and up to 12GB of RAM. The configurations of the phone may vary for the Indian market.
For photography and videography, Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G has a quad rear camera setup that includes a 64-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.7 lens, an 8-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle f/2.2 lens, a 2-megapixel macro shooter with f/2.4 lens, and a 2-megapixel portrait shooter with an f/2.4 lens. For selfies, you get a 32-megapixel sensor housed in a hole-punch cut out placed at the top left corner of the screen.
The phone comes with up to 256GB onboard storage that is not expandable. Connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS/ A-GPS, Glonass, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port for charging. Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is backed by a 4,350mAh battery that supports 65W fast charging. Sensors on board include geomagnetic sensor, proximity sensor, accelerometer, gravity sensor, and gyroscope. The phone also has an in-display fingerprint scanner. It measures 159.7x73.2x7.6mm and weighs 173 grams.
As of now, it is unclear if and when the other phones in the Oppo Reno 5 series will make their way to the Indian market.
