Oppo's Reno series is one of the brand's most popular offerings, especially in India, aiming to deliver a premium, almost flagship experience without breaking the bank. While the series has so far stuck to an annual cycle of releasing a Pro model and a non-Pro model at the same time, the Reno 8T seems to represent a new model.
So far, many leaks have indicated the existence of a 4G variant of the Reno 8T. But a recent tweet from a tipster showed a Reno 8T 5G that also revealed its specs. The phone also has a possible release date and price, thanks to tipster Abhishek Agarwal.
