Oppo has refreshed its premium Reno smartphone lineup with the new Oppo Reno 5K in China. The new smartphone looks similar to its sibling Oppo Reno 5 5G, though it packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G chipset instead of the Snapdragon 765 SoC. Overall, the Oppo Reno 5K comes with quad rear cameras, a 4,300mAh battery, and an OLED display – similar to its vanilla Oppo Reno 5 5G that was first launched in China in December 2020. In India, only the Oppo Reno5 Pro 5G is available from the new Reno 5 series.
Currently, the pricing details of the Oppo Reno 5K in China remain unclear though the company has revealed its two storage options of 8GB RAM + 128GB and 12GB RAM + 256GB. The smartphone’s sale in China will begin on March 6 in Green Breeze, Midnight Black, and Starry Dream colour options. To recall, Oppo launched the Oppo Reno 5 5G with a price tag of CNY 2,699 (approx Rs 30,300) and CNY 2,999 (approx Rs 33,700) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB and 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variants, respectively. The global availability details of the Oppo Reno 5K remains unclear, at the moment.
