The Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ 5G went official in China today. It is the third smartphone in the Oppo Reno 5 series which already has three smartphones- the standard Oppo Reno 5 and the Oppo Reno 5 Pro. The Reno 5 Pro+ is a flagship smartphone unlike the other two phones in the series. It is powered by last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC but has the latest 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor which we will see in most phones next year. Other key features of the Reno 5 Pro+ 5G include 6.55-inch Super AMOLED display, 32MP selfie snapper, 4500mAh battery with 65W fast charging and up to 12GB of RAM. Oppo might launch the Reno 5 series in India in January 2021, but an official confirmation is awaited. Furthermore, the Reno 5 Pro+ 5G could be the rumoured OnePlus 9 Lite with Snapdragon 865 SoC.
