This means that any downtime caused by it’s battery is quickly compensated by it’s fast charging time.

Display

The Oppo Reno 5G is showcased with it’s 6.6-inch AMOLED screen size, with a 1080×2340 resolution (extremely close to other flagship models), it also weighs in at 215g, putting it on the heavier side of smartphones.
