In December last year, we got the Oppo Reno3 series in China & later it was launched globally as well. It looks like Oppo is all set to launch the next generation in a couple of months. As per a very reliable source on Weibo, the Oppo Reno5 series is set to launch somewhere around May which means there are a couple of months left for the launch.
Why no Reno4 series you may ask. Well, the Number ‘4’ is considered Unlucky in China & while companies like Xiaomi may not consider this superstition while naming its phones (We had the Mi 4, Redmi Note 4 etc.), the companies under BBK Electronics (Oppo, Vivo, Realme, OnePlus) do consider this. That’s the reasons we didn’t get the OnePlus 4 as well.
Well, nothing is known as of now when it comes to the design of the specifications of the Oppo Reno5 Series devices so we will have to wait for that. Moreover, the tipster also says that the name (Reno5) is temporary (that’s what the translation suggests) which is also interesting.
