After unveiling the Reno5 and Reno5 Pro earlier this month, Oppo just gave the Reno5 Pro+ its own event probably because it shapes up to be a proper flagship. In other words – it checks all the boxes, although, given the amount of leaks from the past couple of weeks, it’s no surprise.
The handset is built around the 6.55-inch AMOLED panel with 1080 x 2400px resolution (tall, 20:9 aspect ratio) and supports up to 90Hz refresh rate. The touch sampling rate is also a bit higher than the average at 180Hz. Arguably more important is the fact that the display can peak at 1,100 nits of brightness. But we don’t know if Oppo has measured this on a small patch in the center of the display or on the whole panel. Either way, it’s rather impressive.
All the pixels are driven by a Snapdragon 865 SoC with either 8 or 12GB of RAM paired with 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage, respectively. No microSD card support.
The camera setup is equally competent. Sony’s brand new 50MP IMX766 (1/1.56″ in size) sensor is doing the heavy lifting on the back with f/1.8 aperture lens and OIS. The telephoto unit is 13MP using an f/2.4 aperture, but to our surprise, there’s no info on the zoom. We bet on 3x magnification, but will update the article once we know for sure.
As for the other two cameras on the back, there’s the usual 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide unit and a 2MP f/2.4 snapper for macros, whereas the front panel accommodates the 32MP, f/2.4 selfie camera.
Battery life should be solid given the 4,500 mAh capacity while charging is also going to be blazing fast thanks to Oppo’s SuperVOOC 2.0 65W charging. Reverse wired charging is also supported by the handset.
Other notable features include Android 11 with ColorOS 11 out of the box, all-premium glass and aluminum build, stereo loudspeakers with Dolby Atmos tuning, a color spectrum sensor and a fast under-display fingerprint reader.
For now, the device will be made available only in China and pre-orders will start on January 18 while actual sales will begin on January 22. The entry-level 8GB/128GB iteration will sell for CNY 3,999 (~$610), while the beefier 12GB/256GB version will ask CNY 4,499 (~$690). The available colors are Black and Blue. A limited edition version designed in collaboration with Joshua Vides will be available and will go on sale for the same price as the 12GB/256GB model.
