A couple of weeks ago, Oppo launched Reno5 & Reno5 Pro smartphones in the Chinese market and announced that the company would launch another phone under this series soon named the Reno5 Pro+. Well, the Oppo Reno5 Pro+ is now official and as the name suggests, this is the most expensive device under the Reno5 series. The biggest USP of this phone is its primary rear camera. Reno5 Pro+ is the World;’s first smartphone to feature the new 50 Megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor. While it is a high-end flagship from the company, Oppo went for the Snapdragon 865 instead of Snapdragon 865+ or the newer Snapdragon 888.

Speaking of the design, the Reno5 Pro+ looks exactly similar to the Reno5 Pro with one exception and that’s the rear camera module. The Reno5 Pro+ has a Quad camera setup that also includes a telephoto camera for taking zoom shots. There is also two sets of dual LED flash so that’s interesting.
