- Oppo may have got a new device certified on the China's 3C website.
- This device is said to launch as the Reno 5 Lite 5G in China.
- It is confirmed to come with 30W fast charging support.
It looks like Oppo is not done with the Reno 5 series yet. Having launched three smartphones in the series -- the Reno 5, the Reno 5 Pro, and the top-tier Reno 5 Pro+, Oppo is now allegedly working on the Reno 5 Lite 5G. The fourth smartphone in the Reno 5 series has been spotted on a certification website in China, hinting that Oppo maybe wants one more device. Although the certification listing only shows the model number and not the commercial name of the device, a tipster has claimed that this model is indeed the Reno 5 Lite 5G.
China's 3C certification website now shows the Oppo device with model number PELM00, along with the details of its charger. The listing shows this device will come with a charger bearing the model number VC56HACH. Now, this model number belongs to the 30W VOOC 4.0 power brick that is shipped with Oppo smartphones, hence, confirming that this upcoming Oppo device will support 30W fast charging. Now, there is nothing about what this device will be called when it goes for sale. But MyFixGuide has claimed it will be the Oppo Reno 5 Lite 5G, citing some sources.
Oppo was recently reported to have said that it will launch the Reno 5 series smartphone across prices. In the light of which, the Reno 5 Lite makes sense. The Chinese company has launched three Reno 5 series devices so far, all positioned in different price segments. The vanilla Reno 5 costs roughly Rs 31,000, which is the base price for the series right now. The other two smartphones, Reno 5 Pro 5G and the Reno 5 Pro+ 5G come for much higher. Assuming the Reno 5 Lite 5G is going to be a toned-down version of the Reno 5, the base price for the series is likely to come down.
The information of the Oppo Reno 5 Lite 5G is scarce right now but we might get to know its specifications and looks in the coming days. The marketing name of the phone is also not official, so we will have to wait for an official teaser or something from Oppo. A certification website listing, such as this, will also confirm the name.
Back here in India, Oppo is allegedly gearing up for the launch of Reno 5 series. A company official had previously hinted at the India launch of the new series. Later, Oppo Reno 5 Pro was spotted on the website of Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website, confirming that the smartphone is on its way to the Indian market. Alongside, the Reno 5 is also expected. But interestingly, it is being believed that Oppo will launch the 5G versions of both the smartphones, unlike what it did with the prequel Reno 4 series.
