In Phones by Nicole BatacLeave a Comment

OPPO‘s newest midrange smartphones — the OPPO Reno 3 and Reno 3 Pro — are the first in the Reno series to offer 5G connectivity and Android 10-based ColorOS 7 out of the box.

(Update, February 22, 2020: The 4G version of the Pro model is already up for preorder 10 days before its March 2 debut. Read OPPO Reno 3 Pro 4G up for preorder in IN. Specs, rumored price here.)

(Update, December 27: Here’s something surprising: MediaTek vs Qualcomm: OPPO Reno 3 outperforms Reno 3 Pro.)

Both smartphones share a quad-camera setup on the back; the same Moonlight White, Moonlight Black, Bluestarry Night, and Sunrise Impression color variants; up to 12GB of RAM; an OLED screen with an optical fingerprint scanner; and a big battery with support for new fast-charging technology from OPPO.

The OPPO Reno 3 and Reno 3 Pro are also the company’s first smartphones to be powered by new chips — MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000L 5G and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G, respectively. Let’s take a look at each model individually.

OPPO Reno 3 Pro and OPPO Reno 3

OPPO Reno 3

The OPPO Reno 3 is the first next-generation smartphone to come with the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L. There are four Cortex-A77 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores in the CPU paired with a Mali-G77 GPU.

OPPO promises the Reno 3 will be 20% faster than something running with Cortex-A76 cores and that the device will be smarter with a custom APU 3.0 coupled with the processor.

So how much is it? The company offers two configurations for the handset: 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 12GB RAM + 128GB storage priced at ¥3,399 (around P24,641 or $486) and ¥3,699 (P26,816 or $528), respectively. Both options will be available December 31 in China.

The waterdrop notch on its 6.5-inch OLED display houses a 32-megapixel camera. The four cameras on the back include a 64-megapixel primary lens, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide shooter, a portrait camera, and a black-and-white sensor.

The OPPO Reno 3 comes equipped with a 4,025mAh battery with the improved VOOC 4.0 fast-charging technology. The upgraded tech charges the device from 0% to 50% in only 20 minutes and from 0% to 100% in just 56 minutes. Compared with the first version of VOOC, this one can fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in 73 minutes. We need to test it to confirm.
