The Oppo Reno 5 series phones are the company’s latest Flagship lineup, which debuted last month in China. With Oppo starting to roll out their latest Reno 5 series in the international market, the company, on January 18, launched the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G and Oppo Enco X in India, following Reno 5 4 G’s Launch in Vietnam.
The Reno 5 Pro 5G is now available for pre-order in India, with the official price set at INR 35,590.
OPPO Reno 5 Pro 5G Overview
Design and Display
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro’s design is very similar to the Oppo Reno 4 series phones. Like its predecessor, the Reno 5 pro has an ultra-slim body design, measuring 7.6mm in thickness and weighing 173 grams. The device features a glass body.
To achieve the shining effect on the back panel, it undergoes a special etching process, making it resistant to fingerprints. The quad-camera setup on the back is arranged in the rectangular camera module with a glossy finish. The device is available in two colors: Astral Blue and Starry Black.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G features a 6.5-inch super AMOLED display with curved edges, which the company is calling “3D borderless sense screen”. The display has a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels in a 20:9 aspect ratio at 402 PPI density. The screen’s refresh rate is 90 Hz, and the touch sampling rate can go up to 180 Hz.
The display also features a left-aligned single punch hole cutout to house the selfie camera and is HDR+ capable. With the punch hole cutout and borderless design, the phone has a screen to body ratio of 92.1%. The display in Reno 5 Pro 5G is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the top.
Performance and Memory
The Reno 5 Pro 5G is the first launched phone in South Asia to be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset. The chipset is based on a 7 nm process with octa-core (4×2.6 GHz Cortex-A77 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) and ARM G77 MC9 GPU. It features an integrated 5G modem and supports wireless connectivity such as Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
The device is available in a single configuration of 8GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The Reno 5 Pro runs ColorOS 11.1 based on Android 11 out of the box.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G features a rear quad camera setup, consisting of a 64MP primary camera of f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP ultrawide lens with f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP macro lens with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2MP mono lens with f/2.4 aperture. Similarly, the selfie camera is a 32 MP sensor of f/2.4 aperture housed inside the punch hole cutout.
The camera features a new AI Highlight Video mode, which depending on the amount of light around the subject, can brighten footage when it’s dark or apply HDR effect when there is plenty of light. This mode works in videos taken from selfie camera as well.
The rear camera in Reno 5 Pro 5G can take 4k videos at 30fps, 1080p videos at 30,60 & 120fps. Similarly, the front camera can take 1080p videos at 30 fps. Both of these setups feature Electronic Image Stabilization. Other notable features include Dual-view video, Ultra Steady video, AI Color portrait, Monochrome video, etc.
The Reno 5 Pro 5G is backed up by a 4350 mAh battery with the support of 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging. The device also supports reverse charging. According to Oppo, the device can charge 100% within 30 minutes, and 5 minutes of charge can give 4 hours of video playback time.
As the phone’s name suggests, the Reno 5 Pro 5G is 5G enabled. The phone features an in-display optical fingerprint scanner and face recognition biometrics.
