OPPO has released 4G variants of its Reno3 series outside of its native China. Now, it seems it is letting the original, 5G versions of these phones out into the wider world too. It has been certified by the Federal Communications Commission for sale in the US, suggesting it will launch in this market soon.

OPPO has just gotten a phone called the CPH2009 approved by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG) and the FCC. Given the specs and photos leaked through these certifications, it appears to be a global variant of the Reno3 Pro. However, it is not the 4G variant recently launched in India, but the 5G model debuted in China at the end of 2019.

The CPH2009 has also surfaced on Geekbench 5, where it may have been revealed to have 12GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 765G SoC, as the original Reno3 Pro does. This phone was the first mobile device to launch with its processor, and is, like its later-day counterparts from other OEMs, thus intended to bring 5G to the premium mid-tier smartphone market.

As we can see from its offical FCC documentation, this putative OPPO Reno3 Pro 5G Global Edition has a single punch-hole camera and not the dual 44+2MP module found in the 4G variant. It has not been issued an official launch date at present; however, it can reasonably be expected to have an online format.

This event could also perhaps introduce other new accessories such as the Enco TWS earbuds to countries in which they are yet to be sold. On that note, it could also feature at least more information on the OPPO Watch, a new Apple-wearable clone from the same OEM that is also only available in its domestic market at present.
