Rumor | The OPPO Reno7 is going global as a member of the Find X5 series

The latest OPPO Reno mid-range smartphones have launched as the first of their series to have an updated industrial design in a long time, along with potentially powerful rear cameras and more or less up-to-date 5G processors. Now, one of them is tipped to debut on the international market as the Lite alternative for the upcoming Find X5 flagship.

OPPO had stuck with the same basic esthetics of its mid-tier Reno series of smartphones for several generations on end before finally cracking and introducing a new, trendily flat-edged design in the 7 and 7 Pro, the line's current flagships. Now, it looks like these phones will mimic some of their predecessors in one way, which is by re-branding as Find X-series devices for release on the global market.

The vanilla Reno7 is now slated to become the Find X5 Lite in this way, as the 5 became the X3 Lite in 2021 before it. This new rumor has sprung up in accordance with a leak in which the 7 acquires this new alter ego in an alleged screenshot of an official European registration.

Should this be the case, international consumers might expect to see a phone with a 6.43-inch AMOLED display driven by a Snapdragon 778 5G SoC debut alongside the X5 Pro as a cheaper alternative to the upcoming flagship. Many may be glad to see it coming, especially with its new, iPhone-esque chassis; then again, the "X5 Lite" might offer 60W charging, a downgrade on the X3 Lite's 65W top speed.

In addition, the 7 lacks the new Sony IMX709 main camera found in its Pro sibling. On the other hand, there is a chance that phone might also launch outside China as a successor to the X3 Neo, also known as the Reno5 Pro+.
