The Reno 2 has a successor for international markets. OPPO has officially announced the global variant of the Reno 3 and Reno 3 Pro, which are different from the third-gen Reno phones that the company unveiled in China late last year.
It’s also important to note that the OPPO Reno 3 and Reno 3 Pro have been confirmed to launch in the Philippines, too, although local pricing and availability have yet to be determined.
The international versions of the Reno 3 series phones won’t support 5G connectivity, unlike their counterparts from the mainland. The chipsets vary, with OPPO opting to shift away from Qualcomm processors altogether. And neither variants incorporate fast screens. We’ll post our review in a few days, so check back here to see if these two are worth buying.
OPPO Reno 3 official product video
OPPO Reno 3
The OPPO Reno 3 has a 6.4-inch waterdrop screen with an integrated fingerprint scanner and a 90.8% screen-to-body ratio on the front. The back features a quad-camera setup, with 48-megapixel main sensor alongside a 13-megapixel telephoto camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 5-megapixel monochrome sensor.
On the video front, the Reno 3 is supposed to inherit the video capabilities of its predecessor, which is to say the rear camera system can shoot steady videos without having to rely on a tripod or gimbal.
Impressively, the front-facing camera is 44 megapixels — one of the sharpest in the industry. The battery of the phone, meanwhile, is rated at 4,025mAh and supports 20-watt VOOC 3.0 fast charging over a USB-C port. The Reno 3 runs ColorOS 7.0 layered on top of Google’s latest Android 10 operating system.

OPPO Reno 3 Pro
Specs-wise, the Pro variant of the series is a lot like the standard version, except the front panel adds an extra bokeh sensor for portrait selfies, while the back of the handset upgrades to a 64-megapixel primary shooter.
Inside, the Reno 3 Pro is powered by a slightly faster MediaTek Helio P95, as opposed to the Reno 3’s Helio P90.
Its battery backup also tops up much more quickly, thanks to OPPO’s 30-watt VOOC 4.0 fast-charge technology. Like the Reno 3, the OPPO Reno 3 Pro uses Android 10-based ColorOS 7. To find out how the two new phones compare, check out our specs comparison below.
