A new device from OPPO has surfaced on Geekbench 5 running on MediaTek's flagship Dimensity 1000+ SoC. This has led to speculation that the phone in question is the Reno 5 Pro. Meanwhile, its vanilla variant is rumored to exhibit no change in its own silicon from the previous generation.

The OPPO Reno4 series originally launched in June 2020. Despite this, it seems the OEM is forging ahead with a new generation for these phones. An earlier leak has suggested that the base-model 5 would not deviate from the Snapdragon 765G found in its predecessors. However, it now seems the Pro variant might be a very different story.

A new device, the "OPPO PDST00", has appeared on Geekbench 5 with a platform called the ARM MT6889Z/CZA. This processor has also been seen in the Vivo V1986A ahead of its launch. This device turned out to be the iQOO Z1, and does indeed have the Dimensity 1000+.

Its new potential rival has scored exactly 3000 in multi-core Geekbench tests, which outdoes most of the iQOO's results in the same respect to varying degrees. This possible Reno 5 Pro has been joined by another unfamiliar OPPO phone, the PEGM00, on this website.

It has a Qualcomm processor with the code-name lito: the 765G, in other words. Both of these possibly upcoming devices have about 8GB of RAM and run Android 11. Therefore, should they really be the successors to the Reno4 and 4 Pro 5G, they may now not be too far from a launch.

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.
