Last week, OPPO officially announced the next-generation’s Reno5 series smartphones in the Chinese market. Right now, it seems like these devices will soon be making their way to the global market as the OPPO Reno5 with model number CPH2159 had already been certified by the Thai NBTC regulatory.
Although there isn’t any information pertaining to its official specs, but there’s a possibility that the global variant may have some differences from the Reno5 series devices that was launched in the Chinese market – just like what we saw on the OPPO Reno4 Pro (Review).
On the whole, there isn’t really a huge difference in terms of overall specs between the OPPO Reno4 and the new Reno5 series smartphones. The vanilla Reno5 5G continues to be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 765G chipset, while the higher-end Reno5 Pro settles for an upgraded MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC.
Both devices will share the same quad camera system comprising of a 48 megapixels (1.7 aperture) primary shooter, 8 megapixels (f/2.2 aperture) ultra-wide lens, 2 megapixels (f/2.4 aperture) macro camera, as well as a 2 megapixels (f/2.4 aperture) depth sensor. Their similarities extend to the 32 megapixels selfie camera at the front.
To keep the lights on, the vanilla model is fitted with a 4,300mAh battery, while the “Pro” model comes with a slightly larger 4,350mAh battery capacity. Both devices however, will be able to support OPPO’s proprietary 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash charging support.
