OPPO Reno 3 5G series launched: Next-gen connectivity for under $500
OPPO has teased the Reno 3 5G series for a few weeks now, giving us a look at the design and quietly confirming a few specs. Now, the company has officially launched the two devices.
The OPPO Reno 3 Pro 5G is the more impressive device on paper, offering a tiny punch-hole cutout (for a 32MP camera), a brand-new Snapdragon 765G processor, and a 6.5-inch OLED FHD+ screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. This device also packs a 4,025mAh battery with 30W VOOC 4.0 charging. In fact, OPPO says the phone can hit 50% capacity in 20 minutes, and 100% capacity in 56 minutes.
The Pro model is equipped with a quad rear camera setup, featuring a 48MP primary camera (IMX586 with OIS), 8MP ultra-wide snapper, 13MP telephoto camera, and 2MP monochrome sensor. OPPO claims that the phone is capable of 5x “hybrid optical” zoom, so that presumably means the telephoto camera tops out at 2x or 3x native zoom.
The OPPO Reno 3 Pro 5G starts at 3,999 yuan (~$571) for the 8GB/128GB option, while the 12GB/256GB variant retails for 4,499 yuan (~$643).
5G goes even cheaper
Is the Pro option a little too expensive for you? Then that’s where the standard OPPO Reno 3 5G comes in, differing from the Pro version by offering a MediaTek Dimensity 1000L chipset (there’s no word if this is based on the Dimensity 1000) and a waterdrop notch.
Otherwise, the standard variant still offers a 4,025mAh battery with 30W charging, NFC, and a 6.4-inch FHD+ OLED screen with in-display fingerprint sensor. The vanilla Reno 3 also offers a quad rear camera setup (64MP primary, 8MP ultra-wide, monochrome sensor, depth lens), as well as a 32MP selfie camera.
The standard OPPO Reno 3 5G starts at 3,399 yuan (~$486) for the 8GB/128GB variant, and 3,699 yuan (~$528) for the 12GB/128GB option. Which one would you pick? Let us know in the comments!
