The OPPO Reno9 Series became official in the Chinese market, with three variants: the OPPO Reno9, the Reno9 Pro, and the Reno9 Pro+. The phones range in price from midrange to flagship. For the time being, they are exclusively available in China, but they will soon be available in worldwide markets as well. They are not likely to be released in Europe, where at least one of the variations is planned to be part of the Find X6 portfolio. While we wait for its global release, it is important to understand the variations between each type. As a result, we decided to present a comparison of the specs of the OPPO Reno9, Reno9 Pro, and Reno9 Pro Plus.
Despite the fact that it is not the most costly model in the lineup, I adore the look of the vanilla OPPO Reno9, particularly in the unique Red color option. It is substantially thinner and lighter than the Pro Plus version, despite the latter’s greater build quality. It’s also the only variation with the Red color scheme and gold accents surrounding the camera module. The Pro model has the same design, size, and weight as the standard variant, however, the main difference is that it does not come in red. Despite the fact that the OPPO Reno9 Pro Plus has an aluminum frame, I prefer the vanilla version since it is thicker and heavier.
There are no distinctions between these phones in terms of their displays. It has an AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 6.7 inches, a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2412 pixels, a frame rate of 120 Hz, HDR10+ certification, a peak brightness of 950 nits, Asahi Glass AGC DT Star 2 protection, and an in-display fingerprint reader. Although it is not the finest display available on an OPPO handset, it is still a high-end panel. The availability of dual speakers for a better music experience distinguishes the Pro Plus model.
The only phone in the series that we consider a flagship camera phone is the OPPO Reno9 Pro Plus. It has three cameras: a 50 MP Sony IMX890 primary camera with OIS, an 8 MP ultrawide sensor, and a 2 MP macro. The silver award goes to the Reno9 Pro, which has a 50 MP Sony IMX890 primary camera (without OIS) and an 8 MP ultrawide shooter. With a 64 MP primary camera, a 2 MP macro lens, and no ultrawide sensor, the Reno9 is a mid-ranger.
Specs & Performance
One of the most significant advantages of the OPPO Reno9 Pro+ is that it is presently the most powerful OPPO phone available. It is equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 CPU, 16 GB of RAM, and up to 512 GB of native storage. The OPPO Reno9 Pro is less powerful, but it still has a high-end chipset: Mediatek’s Dimensity 8100 Max, along with 16 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of native storage. The base model is a mid-range with a Snapdragon 778G mobile platform, up to 12 GB of RAM, and up to 512 GB of storage. All of the handsets come pre-installed with Android 13 and ColorOS 13.
The OPPO Reno9 Pro Plus has a larger 4700 mAh battery and a quicker charging mechanism with an 80W power output, thus it has a longer battery life.
Price & Availability
The OPPO Reno9 starts at €340/$340 (around Php19,049), the Pro variation starts at €470/$470 (roughly Php26,329), and the Pro Plus model starts at €540/$540 (approximately Php30,249). (the prices refer to the Chinese market). Which one would you choose?
