Next week, on January 18, Oppo is launching the Reno 5 5G series in India. But since smartphones in the series were released in China last year, we know pretty much what to expect in terms of requirements and model. What we did not know was the price in India for the Reno 5 5G series. Yeah, we have estimates dependent on China’s pricing, but for smartphones, they are comparatively more than accurate. The price of the top model in the category, the Reno 5 Pro 5G, has now been shared by a tipster and is higher than the OnePlus Nord price.
Then discuss the forthcoming Oppo devices announcing the introduction of the first 5G phones in India in the Reno series. The Reno 4 series last year already had top-end versions supporting 5G access, but for India and other markets, the company decided to go for the LTE ones. Even the Reno 5 series has LTE versions that were introduced some days ago in Vietnam, but Oppo perhaps felt it was time for a major update to the Reno series in India. It makes more sense than ever to launch more 5G smartphones in India this year because 5G will launch here in the latter half of the year if we go by Reliance Jio’s announcement at last year’s India Telecom Congress.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G would cost Rs 39,990 in India, according to the tipster, Abhishek Yadav (@yabhishekhd). This pricing is in line with the Chinese price of CNY 3,399 for the standard version of the Reno 5 Pro 5G. The tipster has also pegged the launch offers to the Reno 5 Pro 5G. According to the poster, it was able to procure, the Reno 5 Pro 5G would attract 10% cashback to the leading banks, while the package deal, including the Enco X TWS earbuds, will attract a 10% discount.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is claimed to be the same as the China edition, which means there will be the Dimensity 1000+ processor within the device. The launch of this processor in India was recently announced by MediaTek, which is why it makes sense that the company is currently debuting it in India. Interestingly, the Realme X7 series, which is also due to be released some time in India, was supposed to be the first to have a Dimensity 1000+ CPU, but Oppo seems to beat the punch with its own offshoot.
In addition to other specifications, The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G will have a 6.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display with a refresh rate of up to 90Hz, a pixel density of 402PPI, and an aspect ratio of20:9. The display also has a fingerprint in-display scanner. At the rear, there is a configuration of a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and two 2MP cameras for macros and depth-sensing. There is a 32MP selfie camera on the front of the Reno 5 Pro 5G 5G. And the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast-charging technology supports a 4350mAh battery inside.
