Announcement. OPPO Reno9 and Reno9 Pro are the same from the face

OPPO today announced the trio of Reno9 series smartphones in China -
OPPO Reno9,
OPPO Reno9 Pro and
OPPO Reno9 Pro+.

This news is about two junior devices. About the older one, about Reno9 Pro +, you can read here. (It is bigger and more powerful, but it seems to have exactly the same screen).

Curiously, Reno9 and Reno9 Pro are made exactly inthe same building, i.e. outwardly indistinguishable. (Only the younger one still has an additional red coloration, which the older one does not have). In addition, they have the same screens and batteries. And all cameras except the main module.

Well, the main difference is, of course, in the chipset.

The Reno9 comes with a Snapdragon 778G (500-550k AnTuTu points), while the Reno9 Pro comes with a more powerful Dimensity 8100 (700-800k points).

Permanent memory 256 or 512 GB for bothdevices. The RAM for the youngest is 8 or 12 GB, for the older one it is always strictly 16 GB. The older version of Reno9 and all versions of the “firmware” have faster LPDDR5 / UFS3.1 memory. In younger varieties of Reno9, the memory is older and slower. No one has support for memory cards.

The screens are large and solid. 6.7″ (108 cm²) AMOLED matrix, 1080×2412 standard high resolution (394 ppi), refresh rate up to 120 Hz.

Batteries are slightly smaller than I personally would like - 4500 mAh. Charging is fast - 65 watts.

Cameras. The resolution of the front cameras is 32 MP.There are two rear cameras. 64 + 2 MP (main and depth sensor) for Reno9. 50 + 8 MP (main and wide-angle) for Reno9 Pro. Optical stabilization, unlike Reno9 Pro +, is not here.

Other. Everything is standard. Fingerprint scanner under the screen. There is an NFC module, a sixth Wi-Fi. There is no standard audio output. Band 20 is missing from “our” LTE bands.

And about money.

OPPO Reno9 at the start of sales will cost ¥2499 (₽21100, $348), ¥2699 (₽22800, $376) and ¥2999 (₽25300, $418) for varieties 8+256, 12+256 and 12+512 GB, respectively.

For Reno9 Pro you will have to pay more - ¥3499 (₽29500, $488) and ¥3799 (₽32000, $530) for 16+256 and 16+512 GB.

P.S. I forgot to write about "relatives". I am correcting myself.

Reno9 seems to be quite unique.But Reno9 Pro is a variation on the theme of OPPO Reno8 Pro + 5G. The macro camera disappeared, the screen became rounded, and charging became a little slower. But, in general, the devices are similar, to put it mildly, unnecessarily ... In fact, there is also a trinity of OnePlus 10R,
OnePlus Ace and Realme GT Neo 3 are about the same, only the front cameras are simpler, but the appearance is different.
