High-end processor? Check. 50MP main camera? Check. HDR10+ display? Check. Electrochromic back?...Maybe. A new OPPO phone that is almost certainly the impending Reno5 Pro+ has appeared on TENAA, Geekbench and the HDR certification website, seeming to confirm the device's best rumored attributes in the process.

The OPPO Reno5 series consists of 3 premium smartphone variants, although only 2 of them have been debuted at this stage. Its flagship, the 5 Pro+, was only hinted at during this show, with its actual launch date set for December 24, 2020. This led its initial Chinese-market audience to turn to its existing leaks to get an idea of what to expect ahead of this event.

However, a slew of new tips from various sources may have spoiled them all already. The foremost of these is a new official TENAA certifcation for an OPPO device called the PDRM00. It is very similar to the Reno5 and 5 Pro in looks, although its new listing confirms that it has a 50MP main camera not seen in either pre-exising phone.

This sensor is said to be the new Sony IMX766 module, and is joined by 16MP, 13MP and 2MP lenses in the PDRM00. Otherwise, it has the same display as the Reno5 Pro (presumably with the same 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch-sampling rate as well), which is shown by HDR10Plus.org to have its spec also.

The PDRM00 also has the same 8-12GB of RAM, 128-256GB of internal storage and Android 11 OS (skinned as ColorOS 11.1) as the 5 Pro. Then again, it appears to have a slightly larger battery than its probable siblings: 4400mAh, as opposed to 4250mAh at most in the Pro. It also has a different 2.8GHz processor compared to those phones, which, according to Geekbench 5, is the Snapdragon 865 (or kona).

TENAA also provides pictures of this OPPO PDRM00, which reveals that its rear view is finished in a particularly striking gradient and has "Reno Glow" branding. This might help confirm a rumor that the top-end Reno5 variant will come with an electrochromic chassis.

Then again, other older phones have also had this Glow moniker, and may just mean the 5 Pro+ just has a glass back with a gradient effect as so many other new phones have. In any case, all these new leaks will be confirmed or denied at this variant's end-of-2020 launch.
