OPPO has confirmed that the Reno9 series of smartphones are on the way, with a late November 2022 launch date. They have been painted as differing little from their predecessors in recent leaks - however, their first official teasers hint at unusually premium RAM specs and new charging technology

OPPO has now endorsed a slew of leaks and rumors pointing to new additions to the Reno line of Android smartphones before the end of 2022. The 9, 9 Pro and Pro+ variants are indeed on the way, with triple rear cameras in the latter only.

Their predecessors have had reasonably premium features for their market segment such as AMOLED displays throughout the year; however, the OEM has indicated that they will push their appeal to an even higher end in this generation.

The OEM has yet to allude to any upgrades found in the smartphones' updated rear camera humps, although it is apparent that the Reno9 Pro and Pro+ will be the next MariSilicon X-enhanced mobile photography machines, whereas the vanilla 9 will not.

Then again, OPPO has revealed what may be one of the most interesting new Reno9 upgrades: it seems the 9 will start at 8GB of RAM, whereas the Pro and Pro+ will apparently step up to double this amount.

This spec, typically reserved for truly top-end devices (unless it is due to memory re-allocation in software to which the 9 is somehow not privy, of course) is joined by 67 watt (W) charging in the 9 Pro.

The Reno9 gets to share in this update, whereas the 9 Pro+ supports OPPO's faster SuperVOOC 80W technology.

OPPO is set to divulge the Reno9 series' specs, features and prices in full on November 24, 2022.
