Reno is the first mobile device line to use OPPO's innovative shark-fin pop-up front-facing camera. Some SKUs also has a 10x hybrid zoom module on their backs, which may put them in the same arena as the Huawei P30 Pro. These phones have heretofore been available in China only. However, the OEM is now preparing to launch this new line in other markets, Europe included.
A recent report indicates that the base-model Reno will be released on May 10, 2019 - albeit in a selection of countries: Poland, Spain, France, Italy, and the Netherlands. Oddly, the highest-end variant will be the next to launch after this event. The decision may have been taken in order to drive sales of this 5G-enabled model, as it will be the first to feature the 10x camera. The 4G version of the same, therefore, will be the last Reno to launch in Europe.
As for the 5G aspect of the release, it will only apply to a handful of countries in any case. In Europe, OPPO has partnered with EE in the UK and Swisscom in Switzerland to sell the 5G Reno. To date, the OEM has done the same in Australia (with Telstra and Optus) and Singapore (SingTel) thus far.
