Oppo could be working on a new line of phones believed to be the much-awaited Reno 5 series. Even though it is still very early for the phone to hit the market and the launch is reportedly scheduled for next year, but that hasn’t stopped reports and rumors from coming out. Thanks to Oppo’s listing on the TENAA certification website, some key features and specifications of the device have surfaced.
Details on Oppo’s upcoming device spotted on TENAA certification site
According to this listing, an Oppo device with the model PEGM00 (and another variant in PEGT00) will come with a 6.43-inch screen, measure 159.1 x 73.4 x 7.9 mm, and have a 4200mAh battery. The device will support the 5G network, though the processor to enable it isn’t mentioned in the listing. These specifications fall in line with that many were expecting from the successor of Reno 4.
Leaks on Weibo tell a different story
Interestingly, a leak on Weibo, shared by Digital Chat Station suggested that Reno 5 will feature an OLED panel with a 60Hz refresh rate as well as a 180Hz touch sampling rate. Oppo’s Reno-series, especially the recent models have been coming with a 90Hz refresh rate on OLED panels, but if this leak is true, the upcoming model seems to have a downgrade. This report also suggests that the CPU clocks in at 2.4GHz. Although the specific chipset model isn’t known yet, it is widely expected that the device will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800U and the chipset will be integrated with a 5G modem.
Rumored Reno 5 specifications
Oppo Reno 5 could sport a 64MP primary camera while there can also be an 8MP ultrawide camera and dual 2MP auxiliary cameras, according to the report. Additionally, the leak suggested the device to have a 4300mAh battery, which doesn’t quite align with the details suggested by TENAA. Though it is possible these two values could be the minimal and typical charges of the battery. As per the leak, the device will also support 65W fast charging.
Furthermore, Oppo’s new device will likely come with the latest Android 11 out of the box. If it turns out to be true, this will be the first Oppo smartphone to come with Android 11 from the get-go. Currently, only Find X2 and Find X2 Pro are the one devices to have to stable Android 11-based Color OS 11 update. The remaining devices are still stuck at Android 10-based Color OS 7.2.
Oppo hasn’t given any confirmation yet on when the devices will be out or rather what it’ll officially be called. No one is sure yet if this device is indeed Reno 5, so it would be better to hear it directly from official sources at Oppo.
