Design and Display

To this end, Oppo basically reminisced the design of the earlier released Reno 4 Pro 5G on the newly released Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G, giving enthusiasts nearly nothing to be super pumped about.
However, enthusiasts who didn’t own the previous Reno may find this design super appreciable, owing to the fact that it’s one of the best designs on upper mid-range smartphones.
On the rear, we have a dual-tone pattern, on which you will find a camera module housing four cameras and an LED flash.
