OPPO launches the Reno 5 Pro 5G phone and Enco X TWS earbuds in India
Chinese smartphone giant, OPPO, announced its Reno series in April 2019. Focussed on style and camera performance, the Reno series has already been updated to its fifth generation in less than two years. Last month, OPPO launched the Reno 5 series with 5G across all models in China, followed by Reno 5 4G in certain Asian countries. And today, the company is launching its Reno 5 Pro 5G in India with Dimensity 1000 Plus chipset. With the smartphone, OPPO has also launched the Enco X TWS earbuds in the country.
OPPO Reno 5 Pro 5G (Global)
Last year when OPPO launched the OPPO Reno 4 Pro globally, it lacked 5G connectivity and was somewhat of a downgrade in terms of specifications as compared to the Chinese variant. This time around, however, the OPPO Reno 5 Pro 5G global variant is exactly the same as the one launched by OPPO in China.
Externally, the OPPO Reno 5 Pro features a 6.5-inch curved Super AMOLED display with a single hole-punch at the top left corner. The display has a Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The display has a peak brightness of 1100nits and is HDR10+ certified, which means it can play HDR content not only on YouTube but also on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
On the rear side, the OPPO Reno 5 Pro now uses a matte glass back, and the surface underneath it comprises micro pyramids that lead to a shimmering effect on the Astral Blue variant. Simultaneously, the Starry Black finish resembles the rather muted and satiny surface we found during our OPPO Reno 4 Pro 4G review.
One of the major focuses of this smartphone is the rear camera and its video functionality. The OPPO Reno 5 Pro features a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP monochrome camera. On the front, the Reno 5 Pro features a 32MP selfie camera. It supports a host of influencer-centric features such as:
- AI Color Portrait to isolate the foreground and the background by showing the latter in monotone. This applies to both photos and videos
- AI Highlight Video for better HDR in videos
- Dual-View Video to capture videos from front and back cameras simultaneously
- Ultra-steady Video for AI-powered EIS on primary front and back cameras as well as the ultra-wide camera
- 960fps slow-mo video
Inside, the OPPO Reno 5 Pro rocks a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus which is a 7nm octa-core chipset with inbuilt 5G support. The smartphone comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The Reno 5 Pro is powered by a 4350mAh battery and supports OPPO’s 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 proprietary charging technology. The smartphone also comes with a supported charging brick within the box.
In terms of software, the OPPO Reno 5 Pro runs on ColorOS 11.1 based on Android 11. At the moment, this appears to be the only smartphone running the stable version of ColorOS 11 globally.
