OPPO Reno 6 Pro launch imminent as it passes by Malaysia’s SIRIM certification site

Highlights
  • The OPPO Reno 6 Pro has just shown up on the Malaysian SIRIM certification website
  • Previously, it also appeared on the EEC website, indicating that OPPO plans to launch the Reno 6 series globally
  • OPPO is expected to unveil the Reno 6 line of smartphones sometime in May 2021

OPPO’s Reno 5 series of smartphones are only a few months old at this point. However, that hasn’t stopped the company from working on its successors already. It appears that the OPPO Reno 6 Pro is already in the works if a new leak from Twitter leaker Mukul Sharma aka @Stufflistings is to be believed. He has spotted the smartphone on Malaysia’s SIRIM certification website and the EEC. This tells us that the OPPO Reno 6 Pro is mostly final and will be launched internationally. However, OPPO will very likely launch the smartphone in China first before bringing it to other regions. 

It isn’t the first time we’ve heard about the OPPO Reno 6 Pro, though. A few weeks ago, we discovered that the smartphone could come with a battery that supports 65W fast charging, which, at this point, is a standard feature across most OPPO smartphones. OPPO is expected to launch the Reno 6 series towards the end of May 2021, says another report. Ideally, the smartphone should start hitting international markets a month or two after that.

OPPO Reno 6 Pro specifications (expected)

Expected OPPO Reno 6 Pro specifications could include a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset. It is a nice incremental upgrade over the Dimensity 1000+ found on the Reno5 Pro. However, there is a possibility that the Reno 6 Pro could use some yet-to-be-announced MediaTek chipset. The same 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen (90Hz refresh rate) will persist across both devices, though. The camera layout is expected to remain unchanged too, with the OPPO Reno 6 Pro tipped to feature 64MP quad cameras and a 32MP selfie camera. Then again, the differences between subsequent Reno-branded smartphones have been quite marginal, too.
