OPPO Reno 9 series launch seems imminent. The company is yet to confirm the official launch date of the Reno 9 series. The premium smartphone series from OPPO is said to include at least three devices as part of the first set of launches. These include the Reno 9, Reno 9 Pro and Reno 9 Pro Plus. The devices are likely to launch in India early next year. Meanwhile, the key specifications of the OPPO Reno 9 series have leaked online.
The latest set of leaks comes from tipster Digital Chat Station (DCS). The tipster has listed the processor, battery, camera, display and fast-charging details of all three Reno 9 series phones. Let’s take a look at the OPPO Reno 9, 9 Pro, 9 Pro+ 5G specifications, features and other details leaked ahead of the launch.
OPPO Reno 9: What To Expect Under the Hood
OPPO Reno 9 series could debut in China later this month. The spec sheet of the three phones has leaked ahead of the official launch. According to DCS (via), the Reno 9 Pro+ 5G will feature Qualcomm’s current flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. It is being rumoured that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC could arrive on November 15. That being said, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC could offer, more or less, the same level of performance and efficiency.
The tipster also revealed that the Reno 9 Pro+ 5G will feature a tripe-camera setup on the back. It will feature a 50MP Sony IMX890 main camera, which could be seen as a welcome change over the much redundant 50MP Sony IMX766 main camera. It will support optical image stabilisation (OIS). The camera setup is also likely to include an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro sensor.
DCS claims that the device will pack a 4700mAh battery, which is slightly bigger than the Reno 8 Pro+ 5G’s 4500mAh cell. It will support 80W fast charging out of the box.
The Reno 9 Pro, which will sit as a middle child in the upcoming series, will feature a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max SoC. It will sport a dual-camera setup on the back. The main camera will be the same as the Reno 9 Pro+ 5G, which is the 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor. It will be accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide camera. Both, the Reno 9 Pro and Reno 9 Pro+ 5G, will feature OPPO’s custom MariSilicon X NPU for better photo and video performance, especially in lowlight.
The Reno 9 Pro will include a 4500 mAh battery. While the battery capacity is the same as the Reno 8 Pro 5G, the 9 Pro will support 67W fast charging out of the box. Some might look at this as a downgrade on paper. However, the real-world difference between the charging speeds is marginal.
The standard Reno 9, lastly, will pack a Snapdragon 778G SoC. It will have the same charging speed and battery capacity as the Pro model. This means that the vanilla model will pack a 4500mAh battery and support 67W fast charging.
DCS claims that the Reno 9 series will feature a 6.7-inch Full HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate support and 2160Hz PWM. The AMOLED display will be curved and offer support for a billion colours. The chin size is also said to be minimal at 2.3mm.
A lot about the Reno 9 series is leaking online. Therefore, until there is official confirmation, we advise taking the leaked details with a pinch of salt.
