Oppo has unveiled the Reno8 T and Reno8 T 5G, the sole members of the Reno8 T series. Despite having similar names, the pair share barely any components, other than a few cameras. Both are firmly mid-range smartphones, though.

Oppo has presented the Reno8 T series, with a Vietnamese launch seemingly planned before introductions in other markets. Currently, only the Reno8 T and Reno8 T 5G have arrived, which Oppo has distinguished by more than just a 5G chipset.

In fact, the pair only share twin 2 MP auxiliary rear-facing cameras and a 32 MP front-facing sensor. The Reno8 T and Reno8 T 5G even have different chassis. Specifically, while the former measures 160.8 x 73.8 x 7.8 mm and weighs up to 183 g if you choose its vegan leather variant, the Reno8 T 5G comes in at 162.3 x 74.3 x 7.7 mm and 171 g. Elsewhere, the Reno8 T and Reno8 T 5G offer the following hardware:
