- Oppo has launched the Reno 5 Pro+ smartphone in China.
- The Reno 5 Pro+ is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor.
- Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ is unlikely to launch in India and other global markets.
Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ 5G has finally launched in China days after the other two members from the series, the Reno 5 and Reno 5 Pro went official. Oppo has given the Reno 5 Pro+ the top-of-the-line specifications, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor that is still the flagship one until Snapdragon 888 is out on the Mi 11. This technically makes the Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ a near-flagship smartphone that brings the series closer to the Find X lineup.
Not just the processor, Oppo has also gone for a new custom-made 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor on Reno 5 Pro Plus' main camera. Sony has built this sensor for the new Oppo phone but it is not clear if it is going to be exclusive to the Reno 5 Pro+ or if it will be available on future Android smartphones. Oppo is also saying that the Reno 5 Pro+ brings the same glowing finish on the back. The camera module is covered with special nanocrystals that glow in the dark. This glow technology is similar to what the Reno 5 and Reno 5 Pro bring.
Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ price
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ costs CNY 3,999, which is roughly Rs 45,000 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB variant model. There is another variant with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage that costs CNY 4,499, which is roughly Rs 50,600. Oppo said the smartphone will go on sale in China starting December 29. It will be available in Floating Night Shadow and Star River Dream colours (translated from Mandarin). Unlike the Reno 5 and Reno 5 Pro, the Reno 5 Pro+ might not be coming to global markets. A recent tip suggests Oppo might only launch the Reno 5 and Reno 5 Pro in India next month.
