The OPPO Reno 9 Pro+ takes the crown for the best camera. It has a better camera system here. It uses Sony’s IMX890 sensor- a 50MP cam with OIS as the main camera, supported by an 8MP ultrawide lens and 2MP depth sensor. While the Reno 9 Pro takes the second position with a 50MP main cam and 8MP ultrawide. And lastly, the vanilla Reno 9 has the least impressive camera system. A 64MP main cam with a 2MP depth sensor. Though all in the lineup has a 32MP front camera.
Performance | Software
The king of performance here is the OPPO Reno 9 Pro+ with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, paired with 16 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of internal storage. While the Reno 9 Pro takes the silver medal with MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset paired with 16GB RAM and 256 GB / 512 GB storage. The lowest in performance here is the standard Reno 9 with Snapdragon 778G chipset paired with 8/12 GB RAM and 256/512 GB storage.
But software-wise, all of them are booting ColorOS 13 skin software based on Android 13 out of the box. And OPPO has promised up to 2 years of OS upgrades and 3 years of security patches for all Reno 9 Series.

The Pro+ model with a bigger battery charges faster too with an 80W fast charge, while the Reno 9 and 9 Pro support a 67W faster charge.
OPPO Reno 9 vs Reno 9 Pro vs Reno 9 Pro Plus: Verdict
The OPPO Reno 9 Pro Plus is faster than the Reno 9 Pro and vanilla Reno 9. The Reno 9 Pro+ has a better camera, bigger battery capacity, and better performance than its siblings. But with better and faster comes higher pricing too. Thus, for someone on a tight budget, the vanilla Reno 9 is cheaper.
