After making its official debut in the Chinese market last week, the OPPO Reno4 series will soon be heading to the global markets as suggested by its appearance on various certification listings.
Most recently, the OPPO Reno4 has been certified by Thailand’s NBTC authority (via @stufflistings) which interestingly revealed that the device will be available in a 4G LTE model. In fact, this was the case for the OPPO Reno3 as well. If you still remember, the Reno3 was first launched in the Chinese market as a 5G-ready smartphone, but ultimately arrived in the global market with only 4G connectivity.
Due to these differences, there is a likelihood that the OPPO Reno4 (Global) could come with a different SoC from the Chinese model. For instance, the OPPO Reno3 5G was fueled by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L SoC, while the 4G model has a Helio P90 SoC under the hood instead. That’s certainly one way to keep its cost low keeping in mind that 5G network is still not widely available in most markets.
Other than the possible differences in network connectivity and SoCs, the rest of the specs are expected to remain unchanged. As of now, the actual date for its global launch is still a mystery.
