OPPO has adopted a complicated approach to releasing its Reno smartphone series worldwide. The devices might have different SoCs for different markets, for example. However, there is now evidence that the well-spec’d new generation recently launched in China will make it into other countries unmodified.

OPPO initially launched its Reno3 series with 5G SoCs. However, they proved to be exclusive to a handful of markets, and was released with different processors when it got to others, such as Europe. However, there are now hints that the OEM might make the worldwide Reno5 and 5 Pro roll-out more straightforward, as with the Reno4 series.

OPPO’s non-Chinese-market smartphones have model numbers along the lines of CPHnnnn. For example, it has recently certified a new device called the CPH2201. According to the Bluetooth SIG, this phone also goes by PDST00 and PDSM00 – SKUs which have already debuted as those of the Reno5 Pro.

The “CPH2022” has also appeared on Geekbench 5, which reveals that it still has its (still rather rare) Dimensity 1000+ processor. It has also reportedly been approved for sale by Thailand’s NBTC, suggesting that it may be available internationally soon.

This regulator has also certified an OPPO CPH2145, which it names as the Reno5 5G. This model number has not appeared in Geekbench, although it has done so on the Bluetooth SIG website. In this case, it does so without its original identifier (PEGM00).

However, the inclusion of the suffix “5G” in its new documentation does leave scope for it still running the Snapdragon 765G on its Thai launch. In addition, a Reno5 4G has in fact been unveiled in its own right. Therefore, there is a chance that all 3 new 50MP-cam, 90Hz display phones – and perhaps even its Snapdragon 865+-powered Pro+ flagship – might go global soon.
