OPPO Reno5 4G version appears in the hands-on video; find out everything

OPPO unveiled the Reno5 Pro + today in China, but a few hours earlier, a less powerful variant appeared on the web that doesn’t have 5G support. This model, which is called Reno5 4G, is meant for global markets and, although it has yet to be launched, its specifications and design have become public thanks to a first practical video.

The Reno5 4G practical video was posted on Youtube by the Indonesian publication, Nextren Grid. The video appears to have been shot in a store, but surprisingly there is no news of a launch.

The OPPO Reno5 4G comes in a cyan-colored box with a large bold 5 written in the top left corner and the phone name at the bottom. The phone is shown in two colors: Starry Black and Fantasy White, but it is the latter that looks best with its color-changing design even though it is made from plastic. It also seems to be the best at hiding fingerprints.

OPPO ships the phone with a 6.4-inch FHD + display with a hole in the top left corner of the screen and a 90Hz refresh rate. There is Gorilla Glass 5 for scratch protection and under the screen is a fingerprint scanner. As revealed earlier this month in a leak, the Reno5 4G comes with the same processor as the Reno4 4G which is a Snapdragon 720G processor. Users get a single configuration: 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The Reno5 4G has a raised camera housing that houses four sensors and an LED flash. The back of the phone is made of plastic. The camera housing is larger than that of its predecessor thanks to the fourth camera which is now larger. The main sensor is a 64MP camera and it comes with an 8MP ultra wide angle camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. There is a single selfie camera and it’s a 44MP sensor.

OPPO has included a 4310mAh battery and supports 50W fast charging. They also ship the phone with ColorOS 11 based on Android 11. Unfortunately, the price of the phone is not mentioned, but we don’t expect a significant increase in price.

Upgrades between this new model and Reno4 4G can be reduced to improved cameras, battery capacity and faster charging. As for performance, there shouldn’t be any difference. If the phone isn’t announced before the end of this month, expect an announcement in early January.
