OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G: The Ultimate Gaming Smartphone
April 1, 2021

Smartphones have become more than just devices for communication. Right now, the abundance of apps and games that you install on your device means hours of entertainment – but that’s largely dependent on the hardware that powers your device.

Fortunately for the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G it brings some of the best specifications that you will find on a smartphone, which in turn makes it the ultimate gaming smartphone. It’s the time to #Upgrade_theRENOway


Powerful inside and out

The OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 CPU that brings 8 cores of power with a maximum frequency of 2.8GHz as well as an Adreno 650 chip for the GPU. This combination allows the smartphone to handle graphics-intensive games that normally wouldn’t run on other devices.

More than just the hardware, the display also contributes to how immersive and accurate gameplay can be, and it’s great that the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G’s display offers the best technologies you will find in a smartphone.

The OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G has a 6.5-inch AMOLED display that supports a 2400-by-1080-pixel resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate that should be able to deliver the high-quality visuals for the games that you would be playing. What’s more, the screen has a maximum Touch Sampling Rate of 180 Hz, which can instantly register touches that is crucial when on games that require precision and accuracy.

The display even has a 90Hz refresh rate, allowing you to play your games as smooth as possible without any lag. What’s more, brightness levels range from 500 nits up to a whopping 1100 nits. Dark games like “Into the Dead 2” will still be perfectly viewable in daylight – even if you’re under direct sunlight.


Display features like these are equally important in first-person shooting games. Take for example “PUBG Mobile”, one of the most popular battle royale games available. The OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G’s display perfectly captures the detail and clarity of the game that puts a level of realism. When combined with the high refresh rate and the increased Touch Sampling Rate that’s also customisable, each tap on your screen will be instantly recognised which’s essential especially when you’re in a competitive fight. It is for their exceptionally immersive and fluid gaming experience that the Reno5 Pro 5G and Reno5 5G were named the official designated smartphones of PUBG MOBILE Esports in the MEA region 2021.

Sound is equally important in gaming as much as the display, which is why the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G has been fitted with support for Dolby Atmos sound technology that brings spatial audio from the two speakers for a more immersive listening experience. Listen to bullets fly around you or cars roaring their engines as you approach the finish line; this level of audio immersion is possible thanks to the perfectly tuned speakers of the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G.

Optimised for Mobile Gaming

The Reno5 Pro 5G runs on OPPO’s very own ColorOS 11.1, and with it comes a plethora of customisations that give you more control over your smartphone. Along with that, it comes with a special app called Game Space, which aggregates all the games you’ve installed so that you can see them all in one place.

What’s more, Game Space allows you to apply gameplay enhancements that can significantly improve your gameplay. There are three modes that you can turn on when playing a game: Low power mode that moderates CPU and GPU usage to preserve battery life, Competition mode that utilises the maximum power of the hardware, and Balanced mode for the best of both worlds.

Along with these modes, Game Space includes other functions to keep you focused when playing a game. There’s also Quick Startup that, when enabled, will keep a frequently played game running in the background so it launches faster the next time you open it.

These Game Space features proved to be essential in games that require you to be focused. In games like Call of Duty Mobile where the slightest distraction could mean a loss, features like Bullet Screen Messages will allow you to view your messages discreetly as it glides across the screen and doesn’t even require interaction so you can stay focused on your game. In case you want to show your friends how you made the perfect shot, Game Space has a cool screen recording feature that captures footage from your gameplay so it can easily be shared with your friends.

A battery that goes on and on and on

ColorOS 11.1 already includes power-saving technologies to make your battery last for multiple gaming sessions. Just in case your battery runs out, the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G support 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging, allowing you to charge up to 100 percent in just 35 minutes.

Overall, the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G has all the necessary features that make it the ultimate gaming smartphone, combining top-of-the-line hardware and ColorOS 11.1 optimisations that take mobile phone gaming to the next level.
