Oppo has made the new Reno 9 series official in its home country China. This year's lineup has three models as we have seen in the past. These are Reno 9, Reno 9 Pro, and Reno 9 Pro+. The Pro models are undoubtedly packed with better features and high-end specifications. The vanilla model is the most affordable option in the lineup.
The Oppo Reno 9 Pro+ sports a 6.7-inch Full HD+ (2412 x 1080 pixels) curved AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The panel further has up to 240Hz touch sampling rate, 93% screen-to-body ratio, 100% sRGB/DCI-P3 color gamut, and 950 nits of peak brightness. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor coupled with 16GB of RAM. There are 256GB and 512GB onboard storage options.
The triple rear camera setup includes a 50-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The front camera on the phone is a 32-megapixel sensor. The whole package is powered by a 4,700mAh battery with 80W fast charging. The phone will be sold in Mint Green, Gold, and Black color options.
