Recent convincing leaks have pointed to the imminent launch of Reno5 and 5 Pro smartphones with mid-range to premium mid-range specs and 5G SoCs. Now, new leaks indicate that OPPO will be introducing 5 Pro+ and 4G variants alongside them. The former is also rumored to debut a new Sony 50MP camera, and more besides.

Some recent official leaks from TENAA have all but confirmed that successors to the Reno4 and 4 Pro 5G are on their way. However, it seems OPPO is not about to stop there, and is working on a new premium variant for this smartphone series. Provisionally known as the Reno5 Pro+, it is expected to run on the Snapdragon 865 SoC.

This new tip comes courtesy of the Weibo leaker @Whylab via Abishek Yadav on Twitter. Should the English-language translation for this post hold up, it seems the Pro+ will also debut with interesting rear panel choices.

They are apparently finished in either some kind of leather  - or, alternatively, an electrochromic material. This may mean that the resulting rear panel may be capable of changing its color or transparency in response to a current acting on it.

Furthermore, Whylab nows seems to have a reason to expect that the Pro+ will have a 50MP main shooter - which, moreover, will come from the heretofore-unreleased Sony IMX7xx series. Therefore, this entire package might sell for a pretty penny.

Then again, consumers in a position to spend less on a new Reno can also potentially consider its 4G variant. It is projected to have the Snapdragon 720G processor. Despite this putative budget choice, it is also predicted to have a 90 hertz (Hz) refresh rate for its 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED display.

This Reno5 4G's new leak also claims that it will have 64+8+2+2MP cameras, along with a 44MP selfie camera. However, it is also said to have a plastic rear panel and frame. It is currently thought that it, along with its 5G, Pro and Pro+ siblings, might launch as early as December 10, 2020.
