Oppo has unveiled its prices for the latest Reno5 K 5G model that was recently launched in China. The said phone is the latest in the Reno5 series that the company has released for the lineup.
Oppo Reno5 K 5G Specs, Features and Prices
According to Technave, the Oppo Reno5 K 5G has two memory variants: 8GB of RAM with a 128GB of internal memory and 12GB of RAM with 256GB of RAM. Price for the two units are CNY 2699 (about $415) and CNY 2999 ($461), respectively.
Both handheld devices do not support a microSD slot to expand memory, so consumers might consider taking the 256GB variant. The Oppo Reno5 K 5G draws power from an octa-core SnapDragon 750G chipset.
As for its features, the Oppo Reno5 K 5G is built around a 6.4-inch Full HD AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The resolution on the device has a 1080 x 2400, 20:9 ratio and is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The Oppo Reno5 K 5G runs on Android 11-based ColorOS 11.1, supports 5G, features an in-display fingerprint scanner, and comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack. It also has a USB-C-port to charge a 4,300mAh Li-Po non-removable battery with a 65W fast-charging SuperVOOC feature. The Oppo variant also comes with three colors to choose from: Aurora Blue, Moonlight Black, and Starry Dream as GSMArena reports.
For the camera, the Oppo Reno5 K 5G supports a quad-camera setup with a 64MP (f/1.7) primary sensor, an 8MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide lens, a 2MP(f/2.4) macro camera, and another 2MP (f/2.4) depth sensor that can record 4K videos at 30fps and Full HD (1080p at 30/60/120fps). Meanwhile, a 32MP (f/2.4) selfie shooter punch-hole design at the front can also shoot 4K videos at 30fps.
All this might sound familiar to others since the Reno5 K 5G is not entirely a new phone from Oppo. In fact, it is a Reno5 5G with a different chipset.
