The new Reno 5 Pro is the successor to the Reno 4 and the key highlight of the device is 5G connectivity.
As Mr. Damyant Khanoria (CMO, Oppo India) said that, The Reno series always comes with the industry’s leading innovations like the world’s first bokeh effect in Pop-up camera, the first 40MP dual punch hole camera. The Oppo Reno 5 Pro is also continuing this legacy by becoming the first phone to provide this flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor in India.
Let us discuss the overall specs of its latest Reno series phone in detail:
Design – The phone comes with a glass back cover with a matte look, also provides scratch-resistant and sparkling detailing. The front side has a tiny punch hole camera and the display has curved edges.
The phone is sleek and measures 7.6mm in thickness and weighs just 173 grams.
Display – The Reno 5 Pro comes with 6.5 inches super AMOLED display with FHD+ (2400*1080) resolution along with a 20:9 aspect ratio. The screen has 402ppi pixel density including a variable refresh rate of up to 90Hz. Additionally, the display comes with HDR10+ support and also has a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut to produce vibrant and accurate colors.
The display has good sunlight legibility and comes with a peak brightness of 800 nits.
Performance – Reno 5 Pro is the first Reno series phone to be powered with the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ Octa-core processor which is fabricated on a 7nm chipset along with ARM G77 MC9 836MHz GPU that provides extremely powerful performance while playing games and in other graphics-intensive activities.
The phone operates on ColorOS 7.1 based on the latest Android 11.
Camera – Premium Oppo phones always come with incredible cameras and the 5 Pro is no exception. It has a drool-worthy Quad camera setup including a 64MP main camera with an f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP (f/2.4) ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP mono lens that provides you beautiful images.
Also, Oppo is boasting of better video quality at night or in low light conditions as the camera comes with a new LIVE HDR feature that helps to retain better details in shadows and also help in reduction in exposure in the highlights.
Additionally, It has a 32MP ultra-clear front camera with an f/2.4 aperture. So that you take beautiful selfies of yours and with others.
Notably, the rear camera doesn’t come with 4K 60 FPS support, and the front camera can only record 1080p videos.
Variants – The Oppo Reno 5 Pro comes with an 8 GB RAM size and 128GB non-expandable internal storage. There are no other variants launched by the brand.
Security & Unlocking – For fast unlocking, the Reno 5 Pro comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner and fast face recognition support.
Battery – For long usage, it comes with an optimal 4350mAH battery capacity along with 65 Watts SuperVOOC 2.0 flash charge support. The supplied charger can charge the mobile from 0% to 100% in just 30 minutes. Incredible!
Audio – There is support for Dolby Audio and it comes with excellent speaker sound quality and headphone output. The phone has support for SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX HD, LDAC to ensure you get the best audio quality when using TWS headphones.
Price, Availablity & Color variants – The Reno 5 Pro is available in two mesmerizing color options are Astral blue and Starry black and the price of the phone in India is Rs 35,990. The phone will be available for purchase on Amazon India and retail stores from 22 January 2021.
The Reno 5 Pro offers an excellent thin and sleek design with incredible cameras. The display is excellent and also it comes with crazy-fast charging speeds.
It doesn’t have a very large battery and to me, that is a big positive, as huge batteries turn phones into bricks that are hard to carry and use.
The Dimenisty 1000 is not a match for the SD 865 or the SD 888 but is comparable to the SD 765 used in the Oneplus Nord or the Vivo V20 Pro that are available for a slightly lower price point.
Overall, I think the price is a bit higher, it would be great if Oppo can lower it by 3-4k.

The previously launched Reno series is a bestseller in the Indian market.
We can hope that Reno 5 Pro+ will also join their league soon.

The Reno 5 Pro+ has a shiny glass back with an aluminum frame that makes it look stunning.
Also, the phone offers a 6.55 inch OLED display have of a resolution of 2400*1080 pixels. The protection type is not unspecified but we expect Corning of Gorilla Glass 5 on the new Reno series phones.
