Some recent rumors have pointed to the imminent launch of the OPPO Reno 5 and 5 Pro, which are said to run on the Snapdragon 765G and Dimensity 1000+ SoCs respectively. A new leak from the Chinese regulator TENAA may give them more weight. It may show how the 5 looks, while possibly confirming its processor and specs makeup.

The detection of 2 new OPPO phones called the PDST00 and PEGM00 has led to the theory that they comprise the upcoming Reno 5 series. The former is thought to be a Pro model, as it has a Dimensity 1000+ processor compared to the latter's Snapdragon 765G. It has also surfaced on TENAA's website with looks that may indeed indicate Reno status.

Now, the PEGM00 has joined it on this database. It looks quite similar to this "5 Pro" in that it has 3 prominent rear lens circles in a housing with additional, less prominent components. In its case, however, it has an attractive dark blue finish, compared to the PDST00's plain black.

Otherwise, however, the 2 device have a number of specs in common. They include 64+8+2+2MP rear cameras, a 32MP selfie camera, 8 or 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. They also have FHD+ AMOLED displays, although it is 6.43 inches in this "5" as opposed to 6.55 in the "Pro". The former also has battery specs hinting at a dual-cell 4200mAh battery.

The PEGM00 is also now certified as based on a platform clocked at 2.4GHz - the 765G's top speed. Therefore, it is looking more and more like a bunch of preceding rumors are true and that the Reno4 series' successors will indeed debut with these specs. However, they still lack an official launch date at present.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
