We investigate the weak and strong deflection gravitational lensing by a black-bounce-Reissner–Nordström spacetime and obtain their lensing observables. Assuming the supermassive black holes in the Galactic Center and at the center of M87, Sgr A* and M87* respectively, as the lenses, we evaluate these observables and assess their detectability. We also intensively compare these lensing signatures with those of various tidal or charged spacetimes. We find that it might be possible to distinguish these spacetimes by measuring the fluxes difference of the lensed images by Sgr A* in its quiet stage.
