Weeks after unveiling both Reno5 5G and Reno5 5G Pro devices, Oppo announced a flagship and a bit better device than the two aforementioned dubbed Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ devices. The features of this device are highlighted by a 50MP main camera and its Snapdragon 865 SoC.
The Oppo Reno5 Pro+ camera setup is equally competent, with Sony’s brand new 50MP IMX766 (1/1.56″ in size) sensor doing the heavy lifting on the back with an f/1.8 aperture lens and OIS. The telephoto unit is 13MP using an f/2.4 aperture, but there’s no info on the zoom.
As for the other two cameras on the back, there’s the usual 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide unit and a 2MP f/2.4 snapper for macros, whereas the front panel accommodates the 32MP, f/2.4 selfie camera.
The Snapdragon 865 SoC drives the cameras with either 8 or 12GB of RAM paired with 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage, respectively. There’s no memory card support.
Looking at the display, the Reno5 Pro+ features a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel with 1080 x 2400px resolution (tall, 20:9 aspect ratio) and supports up to 90Hz refresh rate. The touch sampling rate is also a bit higher than the average at 180Hz. Arguably more important is the fact that the display can peak at 1,100 nits of brightness.
The Reno5 Pro+ boots Android 11 with ColorOS 11 out of the box and is powered by a 4,500 mAh capacity while charging will be blazing fast thanks to Oppo’s SuperVOOC 2.0 65W charging. The handset also supports reverse wired charging.
The device will be made available only in China, and pre-orders will start on January 18, while actual sales will begin on January 22. The entry-level 8GB/128GB iteration will sell for CNY 3,999 (~$610), while the beefier 12GB/256GB version will ask CNY 4,499 (~$690). The available colors are Black and Blue. A limited-edition version designed in collaboration with Joshua Vides will be available and will go on sale for the same price as the 12GB/256GB model.
