Photo Announcement. OPPO Reno9 Pro+ is almost a serious almost flagship

OPPO announced the top three Reno9 series smartphones in China today - OPPO Reno9, OPPO Reno9 Pro and OPPO Reno9 Pro+.

This news is about the oldest of the devices, about OPPO Reno9 Pro+. You can read about his younger brothers here. (They are smaller and weaker, but seem to have exactly the same screens.)

OPPO Reno9 Pro+ is palpably similar to the sweet couple OnePlus 10T / OnePlus Ace Pro. Only those have a symbolically larger battery, but charging is noticeably faster. And the front is easier. And the appearance is different.

About the characteristics.

Chipset Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 - sureBut for a million points in AnTuTu, if you switch your smartphone to performance mode. 16 GB of RAM, 256 or 512 GB of permanent. Memory is, of course, fast. Support for memory cards, of course, no.

The screen is certainly solid. A huge 6.7" (108 cm²) AMOLED matrix, standard high resolution 1080x2412 (394 ppi), refresh rate up to 120 Hz. However, the screen is not the coolest, not the latest model. The magic combination of the letters "LTPO" cannot be seen, so dynamic adjustment no frequencies.

Standard battery, 4700 mAh. Charging is fast, although far from recommendedBottom - 80 W.

Cameras. On the one hand, the set is quite simple. The front camera has a resolution of 32 MP, at the back there is a typical trio of 50 + 8 + 2 MP from the main module, wide-angle and depth sensor. True, the sensor of the main camera, most likely, is still the same extremely solid Sony IMX766, as in the VanPlaces listed above. Plus there is optical image stabilization. But, alas, there is no telephoto, even the simplest one.

Other. Everything is standard. Fingerprint scanner under the screen. There is an NFC module, a sixth Wi-Fi. There is no standard audio output. From "our" LTE bands from�Missing Band 20.

And about prices. In China, they want ¥3999 (₽33700, $558) and ¥4399 (₽37100, $613) for the device for the 16+256 and 16+512 GB versions, respectively.
