Announcement. OPPO Reno9 Pro + is almost a serious almost flagship

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

This news is about the oldest of the devices, about OPPO Reno9 Pro +. You can read about his younger brothers here. (They are smaller and weaker, but it seems with exactly the same screens).

The OPPO Reno9 Pro+ is palpably similar to the sweet couple OnePlus 10T / OnePlus Ace Pro.
Only those have a symbolically larger battery, but charging is noticeably faster. And the front is easier. And the appearance is different.

About characteristics.

Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset - confidently over a millionpoints in AnTuTu if you switch your smartphone to performance mode. 16 GB of RAM, 256 or 512 GB of permanent. Memory is, of course, fast. Support for memory cards, of course, no.

The screen is definitely solid.Large 6.7″ (108 cm²) AMOLED matrix, 1080×2412 standard high resolution (394 ppi), refresh rate up to 120 Hz. However, the screen is not the coolest, not the latest model. There is no magic combination of letters “LTPO”, so there is no dynamic frequency adjustment.

The battery is standard, 4700 mAh. Charging is fast, although far from a record - 80 watts.

Cameras. On the one hand, the set is quite simple.The front camera has a resolution of 32 MP, at the back there is a typical trio of 50 + 8 + 2 MP from the main module, wide-angle and depth sensor. True, the sensor of the main camera, most likely, is still the same extremely solid Sony IMX766, as in the VanPlaces listed above. Plus there is optical image stabilization. But there is no telephoto, even the simplest, alas.

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 prices. In China, they want ¥3999 (₽33700, $558) and ¥4399 (₽37100, $613) for the device for the 16+256 and 16+512 GB versions, respectively.
