A smartphone with model number OPPO PDRM00 — believed to be the OPPO Reno 5 Pro Plus — was seen in Geekbench bearing scores of 886 and 3,036 in the single- and multi-core tests, respectively.

A listing on the website of China’s certification authority, TENAA, on the other hand, reveals that the handset features a 50MP + 16MP + 13MP + 2MP camera setup on the back; a 6.55-inch Full HD+ screen with a 32-megapixel selfie shooter inside a punch hole on the upper-left side; a 4,400mAh battery; and Android 11-based ColorOS 11. RAM is as much as 12GB while storage is up to 256GB.

It’s likely that the OPPO Reno 5 will be released in the Philippines, too. But the question is, will all three of them become available locally? And will it — or they — have the same specs as the variants in China? Don’t hold your breath just yet.
