Chinese smartphone maker Oppo launched its Reno 5 series in China earlier this month. Now, it seems that the company may be preparing to bring the Oppo Reno 5 series, or at least the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G to India. A recent report has suggested that the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is said to be associated with a smartphone spotted on a Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification listing. According to the BIS listing, a smartphone that goes by the model number CPH2201 is said to be the Oppo Reno Pro 5G, as the smartphone was listed with the same model number on Singapore's IMDA certification website.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G comes powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset in China, coupled with up to 12GB of RAM. It is not known as to which processor Oppo will decide to put on the Reno 5 Pro 5G for India. In another development, Oppo's head of India R&D, Tasleem Arif asked people on Twitter if they want a “great smartphone to shoot brilliant videos” in India, hinting that the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G may just be coming to the country. Given that the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G may launch in the country anytime soon, let us put it to its closest competitor in India, the Mi 10T Pro. The Oppo Reno Pro 5G was launched in China at a price of CNY 3,399 (roughly Rs 38,400) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, while the Mi 10T Pro costs Rs 39,999 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant in India. Close enough. Here is how the two compare on paper:
