OPPO Reno5 4G version appears in hands-on video; bares it all

OPPO unveiled the Reno5 Pro+ today in China but hours before then, a less powerful variant that doesn’t have 5G support appeared on the web. This model, which is called the Reno5 4G is meant for global markets and while it is yet to launch, its specs and design have become public knowledge thanks to an early hands-on video.

The Reno5 4G hands-on video was posted on Youtube by the Indonesian publication, Nextren Grid. The video seems to have been taken at a store, but surprisingly there is no news of a launch.

The OPPO Reno5 4G comes in a Cyan-colored box with a big bold 5 written at the top left corner and the phone’s name at the bottom. The phone is shown in two colors – Starry Black and Fantasy White but it is the latter that is better looking with its color-switching design even though it is made of plastic. It also seems to be the one better 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 protection against scratches and under the screen is a fingerprint scanner. As revealed earlier this month in a leak, the Reno5 4G does come with the same processor as the Reno4 4G which is a Snapdragon 720G processor. Users get a single configuration – 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage.

The Reno5 4G has a raised camera housing that is home to 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 bigger. The primary sensor is a 64MP camera and it comes along with an 8MP ultrawide angle camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. There is a single selfie camera and it is a 44MP sensor.

OPPO has included a 4310mAh battery and it supports 50W fast charging. They also ship the phone with ColorOS 11 based on Android 11. Unfortunately, there is no mention of the price of the phone but we don’t expect a significant jump in price.

The upgrades between this new model and the Reno4 4G can be narrowed down to improved cameras, battery capacity, and faster charging. With respect to performance, there should be no difference. If the phone isn’t announced before the end of this month, expect an announcement in early January.
