All in all, the Reno 5 4G doesn’t seem to differ much from the Reno 4 Pro Global, which launched in July, and the only difference between them is the primary camera, battery and charging speed.
OPPO has not yet shared any information on when it plans to launch the Renault 5 4G to global markets. However, since the phone has already reached the hands of some YouTubers, it shouldn’t be long before we hear the official announcement of the OPPO.
