Both the phones differ in terms of design as the Reno 7 Pro has flat sides while the Reno 7 comes with curved sides and a curved back panel. The Reno 7 Pro also has a light strip around the camera module which is unique in its segment. It can light up to notify you about calls and other notifications. The camera placement of primary and ultra wide sensors, however, remain identical.
