The smartphone’s Wi-Fi certificate reveals support for dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11/a/b/g/n/ac. Additionally, the Wi-Fi certification confirms the smartphone will be running on the latest Android 9.0 Pie OS out of the box.

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has certified two upcoming OPPO smartphones bearing model numbers CPH1979 and CPH1983. While the marketing names of the two phones remain a mystery currently, the Bluetooth certification has shed light on some of their key specifications.
OPPO CPH1979 to Feature a MediaTek Helio P90 SoC
According to the CPH1979 Bluetooth certification, the smartphone will feature a 6.41-inch AMOLED display and run on a MediaTek MT6779V Helio P90 chipset clocked at 2.2 GHz. No smartphone powered by the chipset has gone on sale yet, so the CPH1979 may well be the first global smartphone to be powered by the mid-range chipset. In terms of optics, the smartphone uses a 48MP + 5MP dual cameras at the rear and a 32MP selfie camera on the front. The battery size is listed to be 4035mAh. In terms of software, the OPPO CPH1979 will be launched with the Android Pie-based ColorOS 6.0.
An upcoming Reno series smartphone was recently spotted on the TENAA website with a waterdrop screen and dual rear cameras. Going by the specifications listed by the Bluetooth Special Interest group on its website, it appears likely that the CPH1979 might be the global variant of the PCDM10/PCDT10 smartphone certified by TENAA.
