Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G India price, offers leaked ahead of launch next week

Oppo launched the Reno 5 Pro 5G and the Reno 5 5G in China in December and now it is bringing them to India.

Oppo is launching the Reno 5 5G series in India next week on January 18. Because the smartphones in the series were launched last year in China, we pretty much know what to expect in terms of the specifications and the design. But what we have not known is the price of the Reno 5 5G series in India. Yes, we have the projections based on the China pricing but they are relative more than accurate for the smartphones. A tipster has now shared the price of the top model in the series, the Reno 5 Pro 5G and it is higher than the cost of OnePlus Nord.

Update: The tweet suggesting the price and offers, has been removed by the tipster, so we are back to assuming the price might be based on the China price of the Reno 5 Pro 5G.

Before I tell you what price this new juicy rumour has suggested, let me take some moment to talk about Oppo's upcoming devices that mark the launch of the first 5G phones in the Reno series in India. Last year's Reno 4 series too had top-end variants supporting 5G connectivity, but the company chose to go with the LTE models for India and other markets. Even the Reno 5 series has LTE variants, which launched in Vietnam some days ago but Oppo maybe thought it is time the Reno series in India is due for a significant upgrade. Launching more 5G smartphones in India this year makes more sense than ever because apparently, 5G will launch here towards the latter half of the year if we go by Reliance Jio's announcement at the India Mobile Congress last year.

What the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G might cost

According to the tipster Abhishek Yadav (@yabhishekhd), the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is going to cost Rs 39,990 in India. This price is in line with the China pricing of CNY 3,399 for the base variant of the Reno 5 Pro 5G. There may be more variants in India, including the 12GB RAM version. The smartphone comes in River Dreams, Aurora Blue, Moon Nights, and Star Wish Red but these names might change for the Indian market.

The tipster has also tipped the launch offers on the Reno 5 Pro 5G. According to the poster he managed to obtain, the Reno 5 Pro 5G will attract a 10 per cent cashback on leading banks while the bundle offer including the Enco X TWS earbuds will attract a 10 per cent discount.

Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G specifications

The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is said to be exactly the same as the China version, which means there will be the Dimensity 1000+ processor inside the device. MediaTek recently announced the launch of this processor in India, which is why it makes sense the company is now debuting it in India. Interestingly, the Realme X7 series, which is also due for launch in India in some time, was expected to be the first one to have Dimensity 1000+ processor but it seems Oppo beat its own offshoot to the punch.

Talking about other specifications, the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G will have a 6.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display with a refresh rate of up to 90Hz, 402PPI pixel density, and an aspect ratio of 20:9. There is a punch-hole on the top left corner of the Reno 5 Pro 5G display. The display also has the in-display fingerprint sensor. At the back, there is a setup of a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and two 2MP cameras for macros and depth-sensing. On the front, there is a 32MP selfie camera on the Reno 5 Pro 5G. The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G runs ColorOS 11 based on Android 11. And there is a 4350mAh battery inside that supports the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging technology.
