In Phones by Alora Uy GuerreroLeave a Comment

We’re still 10 days away from the OPPO Reno 3 series December 26 launch in China, but we already know the key specs of the two 5G models in the lineup.

(Update, December 26: They’re official! Read OPPO Reno 3, Reno 3 Pro: Prices, specs, availability.)

And we are excited about the devices. After all, the OPPO Reno 3 5G and Reno 3 Pro 5G are the company’s first smartphones powered by new chips we haven’t tested but look to be promising — the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L 5G and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G.

Live pictures of the non-Pro model have surfaced, confirming some of the stuff we know about the device.

The two photos below show that the OPPO Reno 3 5G has a waterdrop notch, a panel with a high screen-to-body ratio, and a differently colored power key.

If you take a look at what’s on the display, you’ll see “MT6855” — essentially the Dimensity 1000L processor — with four ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2GHz and another four still-unknown ones — believed to be the Cortex-A77 — clocked at 2.2GHz.

The unit in the photos has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but we have a feeling it will be released in other memory configurations.

Earlier, a listing of the OPPO Reno 3 5G has been spotted on the site of Chinese certification authority TENAA. And besides the things mentioned above, here’s what the listing reveals:

  • The AMOLED display with 2,400 x 1,080 resolution measures 6.4 inches;
  • The phone is running Android 10, which should be layered with OPPO‘s new ColorOS 7;
  • The quad-camera setup is 64MP (said to be from Samsung) main + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP macro + 2MP depth;
  • The selfie camera is 32 megapixels;
  • The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the screen;
  • The battery is rated at 4,025mAh;
  • The dimensions are 160.3 x 74.3 x 7.96mm;
  • The unit weight 181 grams.
  • The Reno 3 5G supports NSA and SA bands 41, 78, and 79.
  • The smartphone is available in black, white, silver-blue, silver-red, and pink-blue colors.

The Pro version is going to be the second handset that will be announced with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chip after the Redmi K30 5G.

Unlike the non-Pro model, it features curved edges. There’s no notch; the 32-megapixel selfie camera will be housed in a punch hole on the upper-left side of the display. And not surprisingly, the bezels are minimal and the body is all glass.

At just 7.7mm, the OPPO Reno 3 Pro 5G is shaping up to be the thinnest dual-mode 5G phone in its price segment.

OPPO vice president and president of global marketing Brian Shen’s tweet below shows that the device sports four cameras on the back — said to be 48MP + 13MP + 8MP + 2MP, with 5x zoom on one of them — arranged vertically at the top-left portion of the rear. The power button is on the right side, and the volume keys, on the left. The OPPO branding, on the other hand, is seen at the bottom right of the back panel.

The OPPO Reno 3 Pro 5G is confirmed to have a 4,025mAh battery with enhanced VOOC 4.0 fast-charging technology. Enhanced, meaning the smartphone can go from 0% to 50% in only 20 minutes and from 0% to 100% in just 56 minutes. Compare that with the first version of VOOC 4.0’s ability to fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in 73 minutes. Impressive if true.

As listed on TENAA, the Reno 3 Pro 5G sports a 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with an under-screen fingerprint sensor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and Android 10. Don’t look for any headphone jack here.
