Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ 5G has been launched in China as the company's most advanced smartphone. The new model, which comes as a premium offering in the series that includes the recently launched Oppo Reno 5 and Oppo Reno 5 Pro, houses a Sony IMX766 primary camera as a headline feature. The Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ 5G also comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC to deliver a distinct experience over the Oppo Reno 5 Pro that includes a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC. However, just like the Oppo Reno 5 Pro and the Oppo Reno 5, the new flagship flaunts a hole-punch display design. It also comes with up to 12GB of RAM.
