Headlining the Reno4 family, the Oppo Reno4 Pro 5G comes with a capable Snapdragon 765G chipset, a 90Hz AMOLED display, and a tri-set of cameras on its back. We reviewed the 4G-only version a while ago, and it’s now time for the 5G variant.

It’s not just the next-gen connectivity that sets them apart, mind you. As part of the upgraded chipset, you’d also be getting a boost in performance over the Reno4 Pro, particularly in the graphics department. In a way, it’s a flagship-grade chip – if the Pixel 5 can pass for a flagship.
Additionally, the 5G version’s camera system is a marked upgrade over the plain Reno4 Pro’s setup, even though it’s one unit short and it’s using the same primary shooter. Here, you’re getting a 2x telephoto, which is missing on the other phone, and a nicer 13MP ultra-wide replaces the 8MP unit and doubles as a macro cam thanks to its autofocusing capability.
A few other differences can be spotted elsewhere, and it’s mostly a matter of things that are missing – there’s no microSD slot or headphone jack on this model, and an FM radio is nowhere to be found either. On a positive note, the 5G version comes with stereo speakers, and that’s twice as many as on the 4G variant.

Oppo Reno4 Pro 5G unboxing
The Reno4 Pro 5G arrives in much the same package that we got the non-5G version. A teal sleeve with a dreamy soft Reno device holds the white cardboard box.
A full set of accessories can be found inside. The 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charger is the most essential bit, and there’s a cable to go with it – as usual with proprietary charging systems, you better hold on to both the adapter and the cable if you want the 30-something minute charging capability.
A set of earphones is included too, and they look pretty neat – the Oppo-green meshes against the white of the buds serve as a nice accent. A clear silicone protective case for the handset completes the bundle.
