Earlier this month, a reliable tipster had claimed that OPPO is planning to launch a Snapdragon 750G SoC powered version of the Reno5 5G smartphone. Fresh information shared by another tipster suggests that the device could be launching as the OPPO Reno5k in China soon.
The previous leak had claimed that the OPPO Reno5 5G which debuted in December 2020 has gone out of stock. The Snapdragon 765G chipset powered phone was selling in China with a starting price of 2,699 Yuan (8GB RAM + 128 GB storage variant). The new leak speculates that the Reno5k’s 8GB+128GB edition could be priced at 2,499 Yuan (~$387).
The OPPO Reno5 5G was made available in hues like Aurora Blue, Midnight Black, and Starry Dream. It is likely that the Snapdragon 750G SoC powered OPPO Reno5k will not be available in the blue version. Instead, the company may introduce a new color option.

Except for the chipset, the OPPO Reno5k may borrow all its specifications from the Reno5 5G. Hence, it is likely to feature a 6.43-inch FHD+ punch-hole screen that offers a 90Hz refresh rate, a 32-megapixel front camera, a 64-megapixel + 8-megapixel (ultrawide) + 2-megapixel (macro) + 2-megapixel (depth) quad-camera system, a 4,300mAh battery with 65W fast charging support, an in-screen fingerprint reader, and Android 11 OS.
In related news, an OPPO phone with model number PEGM10 / PEGT10 was certified by the TENAA agency of China. There is a possibility that it could be the upcoming OPPO Reno5k as the regular Reno5 5G has PEGM00 / PEGT00 model number. The images of the PEGM10 / PEGT10 show that its appearance resembles the Reno5 5G.
