OPPO Reno 5 Pro Plus 5G
At Christmas, OPPO is treating us to the Reno 5 Pro Plus 5G this year. The phone was first presented in India. If we look at the smartphone, we especially notice the similarities with the Reno 4 series, but the phone does distinguish itself with a new camera setup and a larger battery. Although the most striking aspect is its electrochrome cover. This is a case made of glass that conducts an electrical signal that causes the smartphone to change color. You can activate the color change by touching the cover. We recently saw a similar technology in the OnePlus 8T Concept.
In addition, there is the screen. As with the Reno 4 series, we see a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels with the Reno 5 Pro Plus 5G. It also has a 90 Hz refresh rate and a camera notch in the left corner. The differences with the Reno 4 series mainly have to do with the brightness. The Reno 4 Pro had a panel with a brightness of 500 nits, but that has been increased to 1100 nits with the Reno 5 Pro Plus 5G. The fingerprint scanner is also under the screen.
Performance, battery and camera
If we then look at the engine of this smartphone, they find the Snapdragon 865 from Qualcomm. The Xiaomi Mi 11 will be the first smartphone to appear with the new Snapdragon 888 , and that on December 28 . However, this phone will be a lot more powerful than the Reno 4 Pro that appeared with a Snapdragon 765G. OPPO also gives the phone 8 GB or 12 GB RAM and that with 128 GB or 256 GB storage respectively. The manufacturer uses the fast UFS 3.1 storage.
There is also the battery, which is increased to 4500 mAh, and OPPO supplies the phone with its powerful 65-watt fast charger. The phone also comes right out of the box with Android 11 and also with OPPO’s own ColorOS 11.1 shell. The Reno 5 Pro Plus 5G also got a new camera setup with a 50MP main camera. The main sensor comes with an f / 1.9 aperture and has a sensor size of 1 / 1.56 inch. There is also a 13 MP telecamera, a 16 MP wide-angle camera and a 2 MP macro camera.
The OPPO Reno 5 Pro Plus 5G has been announced in India and it is therefore not yet known whether it will also come to the Netherlands. We have contacted OPPO Netherlands for more information and we will update this article as soon as we have a response.
