Oppo has launched the Oppo Reno5 A mid-range smartphone in Japan. It is part of the Reno5 series that debuted late last year and is very similar to the Reno5 5G. There are a few differences here and there that make the two smartphones stand apart from each other. The good thing is that the company has not continued with the 5G network support.
The Reno5 A sports a 6.5-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display with a punch-hole. It offers 90Hz refresh rate support which is now started to become a common thing among Android smartphones. Under the hood, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor coupled with 6GB of RAM. There is 128GB of onboard storage and it is the only configuration option available.
The back panel of the phone has a total of four cameras. These include a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, a 2-megapixel macro sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The front camera is a 16-megapixel sensor housed within the notch. The battery capacity on the phone is 4,000mAh which is supported by 18W fast charging. The phone will run ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 out of the box.
The phone further has a physical fingerprint scanner on the back and an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. Oppo is yet to reveal Reno5 A pricing and availability details. However, we do know that it will be sold in Black and Blue color options.
