- Oppo’s Reno 5 Pro brings the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus chipset to India.
- The phone launches in India on January 22 for Rs 35,990.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro is launching in India, and it is the first phone to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus in the country.
Oppo is striking a middle ground with the spec sheet here, and while the phone brings high-end performance with the Dimensity 1000 Plus chipset and 8GB of RAM, it balances it out with a 6.5-inch 90Hz Full HD display instead of the 120Hz panels we’re starting to see in the segment.
On an imaging front, the phone packs standards like a 64MP primary camera paired up with an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, a 2MP macro camera as well as 2MP depth sensor. As is the case with Oppo phones, there is a keen focus on AI-enhanced video and selfies.
Oppo claims that its AI-powered video capture system can enable better portrait mode in videos, as well as more effective video stabilization.
Elsewhere, the phone packs a 4,350mAh battery that is paired up with 65W charging that should be able to top-off the phone in under a claimed 30 minutes.

Oppo Reno 5 Pro: Price and availability
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G will be available in two colors at launch — Astral Blue and Starry Black. The former looks particularly fetching with its combination of a subtle glitter and blue gradient.
The phone goes on sale for Rs 35,990 (~$491) starting January 22 when it will be available at Flipkart and offline retailers.
Oppo has a very interesting premium mid-range offering with the Reno 5 Pro 5G, but the lack of features like a 120Hz display and telephoto sensor might put it on the back foot compared to some of the other alternatives in India.
