Oppo Reno5 Pro+ officially confirmed to feature Sony IMX766 sensor

This sensor outputs 50 Megapixel images

Almost a couple of weeks ago, the Oppo Reno5 series launched in China and while we expected to see three phones, the company launched Reno5 & Reno5 Pro. Later, Oppo announced that it would launch the Reno5 Pro+ on the 24th of December. Well, just a few days are now left for the launch, and amidst all the rumours of the phone featuring a Sony IMX766 sensor, the company has now officially confirmed the same. The Oppo Reno5 Pro+ is indeed coming with the IMX766 sensor from Sony & the company revealed this by posting a couple of teasers on its Weibo page.

One of the teasers also shows the rear of the phone, and as we can see, the only noticeable design change when compared to the Reno5 Pro is that Periscope camera on the rear that is missing on the “Pro” version. The image once again confirms that there is Snapdragon 865 SOC and 65W fast charging. So when it comes to the IMX766 sensor, what’s the fuss about? Well, this will be the first time we are getting a phone with this sensor from Sony, and it is said to output 50 Megapixel photos by default.

Some of the specs that have leaked already include a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate, a 4,500mAh battery, a 13 Megapixel telephoto + 16 Megapixel ultrawide camera on the rear, up to 12GB RAM & more.
