Oppo may be working on a new series of smartphones that is believed to be the Reno 5 line. Although it is still early for the smartphone to be released on the market as its launch is allegedly set for 2021. But what we are getting now are some key specifications of this device, thanks to its listing on the TENAA certification website.
According to the listing, the Oppo device with the PEGM00 model (and a variant of it called PEGT00) will have a 6.43-inch screen, a 4200mAh battery, and will measure 159.1 × 73.4 × 7.9mm. It will come with support for 5G networking, although the processor to enable it is not mentioned in the list. These specs seem in line with what you’d expect from the Reno 4’s successor.
Additionally, a leak on Weibo, shared by Digital Chat Station, the Oppo Reno 5 will sport an OLED panel with a 60Hz refresh rate and 180Hz tactile sample rate. Oppo’s recent Reno series models have a 90Hz refresh rate on OLED panels, but this new model feels like a downgrade. The report also suggests that the CPU will be clocked at 2.4 GHz. But while the specific chipset model is not known, MediaTek Dimensity 800U is expected to power it. This chipset is integrated with a 5G modem.
The Oppo Reno 5 is expected to have a 64MP main camera while there may be an 8MP ultrawide camera and two 2MP auxiliary cameras, according to the report. The leak also suggests there will be a 4300mAh battery, which is not in line with what the TENAA listing suggests. It is possible that these two values may belong to minimum and typical battery charges. This device will come with 65W fast charging support, based on the leak.
Also, the Oppo device should come with Android 11 ready to use. If this turns out to be true, this will be the first Oppo smartphone to come with Android 11 from the start. At the moment, only Find X2 and Trova X2 Pro smartphones are the ones to get the stable ColorOS 11 update based on Android 11. The rest of the devices are still stuck on ColorOS 7.2 based on Android 10.
Oppo has yet to confirm when this device will be released or, better, as it will be officially called. We’re not even sure if this will be the Reno 5, so it’s best to wait to hear straight from the horse’s mouth.
