OPPO Reno5 Pro Powered By MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus!
OPPO is introducing the Reno5 Pro as a more powerful variant of their Reno5 5G smartphone.
Let’s start with this presentation on the OPPO Reno5 Pro.
The OPPO Reno5 Pro comes with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display, with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels.
This display has a high colour gamut of 100% sRGB, with a maximum brightness of 800 nits.
You can toggle between a 60 Hz and 90 Hz refresh rate, and the display has a 180 Hz sampling rate.
The OPPO Reno5 Pro is powered by the new MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus, which has eight CPU cores :
- 4 x Arm Cortex-A76 core @ 2.6 GHz
- 4 x Arm Cortex-A55 cores @ 2.0 GHz
They are paired with the Arm Mali-G75 MC5 GPU, with AV1 hardware decoding capability.

Memory + Storage
The OPPO Reno5 Pro comes with 12 GB of RAM, and 256 GB of storage. The larger storage capacity is important, because it does not support external storage through a microSD card.
The OPPO Reno5 Pro has a high-resolution 32 MP front camera, with an f/2.4 aperture. Despite its high resolution, it only supports 1080p video recording, at up to 30 fps.
In the back, it has a quad camera system that consists of :
- a 64 MP main camera, with f/1.7 aperture
- an 8 MP ultra-wide camera, with f/2.2 aperture
- a 2 MP macro camera, with f/2.4 aperture, and
- a 2 MP depth sensor, with f/2.4 aperture
The 64 MP main camera can record videos at up to 4K @ 30 fps, or 1080p @ 60 fps.
Beyond that, OPPO is trying to promote their new Dual-View capability, which combines videos from both the front and rear cameras.
5G connectivity is a key selling point for the OPPO Reno5 Pro, which supports both 5G SA (Standalone) and 5G NSA (Non-Standalone) modes.
However, you are unlikely to be able to actually utilise this capability for quite some time, as the 5G rollout will take years.
Small Fast-Charging Battery
The OPPO Reno5 Pro has a small 2,175 mAh battery, but it supports 65 watt SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging capability.
And yes, it comes with the charger in-box.
