OPPO has just updated its Reno smartphone lineup, with the Reno 9, 9 Pro and 9 Pro Plus models. All cell phones have a similar look, but have a number of distinctions in their specifications.

OPPO Reno 9 Pro Plus has advanced performance

The main device in the series comes with a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, limited to frequencies of up to 2.99 GHz — for comparison, the traditional version of the chipset operates at up to 3.2 GHz.

Its configuration options reach up to 16 GB of LPDDR5x RAM, and 512 GB of storage via UFS 3.1. Therefore, more powerful specifications than the previous model, sold with up to 12GB + 256GB.

Its camera set also has news, as for the first time a Reno series device has optical image stabilization (OIS) in the main camera — this primary set has a 50 MP Sony IMX890 sensor.

Among the auxiliary cameras is the 8 MP ultrawide and additional 2 MP component, while the front one has a 32 MP Sony IMX709. The Reno 9 Pro Plus also has the MariSilicon X chip to assist in image processing, especially those in poorer light conditions.

The device features a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and support for refresh rates at 120 Hz. There is also PVM dimming technology at 2,160 Hz, curved edges and central circular cutout for positioning the front camera.

Its construction houses a 4,700 mAh battery, with support for 80 W recharges with a USB-C cable. Wireless charging is also available, but at 50W.

OPPO Reno 9 and 9 Pro offer different processors

The Reno 9 and 9 Pro models have some similarities to each other, but the processing units are different. While the first comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, the second brings a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max.

In addition, the Pro model offers versions with up to 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB or 512 GB of memory. Storage options are the same on the base device, but in this case only 8GB or 12GB RAM variants are available.

Differences are also seen in the set of cameras, as the Reno 9 Pro has a 50 MP main sensor and an 8 MP ultrawide sensor. The Reno 9, on the other hand, brings a 64 MP component along with a 2 MP monochrome.

However, on the front the sensor is the same: it is a 32 MP camera, with autofocus and RGBW pixel arrangement. However, only the Pro model comes with the MariSilicon X chip.

Both bring a 6.7-inch screen, with AMOLED technology and refresh rates at 120 Hz. This panel still offers Asahi Glass AGC DT-Star2 protection and 950 nits of maximum brightness.

The battery is also the same, with 4,500 mAh capacity, and support for recharges of up to 67 W with cable.
