OPPO Reno 3 specifications
The OPPO Reno 3 is expected to sport a 6.5-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with 2,400 X 1,080 pixels resolution and in-display fingerprint sensor for security. It is likely to run Android 9.0 Pie with the company’s custom UI on top. The OPPO Reno 3 is said to feature a quad-camera setup at the back consisting of a 60-megapixel primary lens, an 8-megapixel secondary shooter, a 13-megapixel lens and a 2-megapixel sensor. On the front, it is said to rock a 32-megapixel unit for selfies and video chats. However, it isn’t clear if it’ll have the shark-fin pop-up module like the Reno 2.
OPPO Reno 3 is also said to be the company’s first phone to be powered by the Snapdragon 735 SoC. It packs 8GB LPDDR4X RAM with either 128GB or 256GB UFS 2.1 storage. A beefy 4,500mAh battery with 30W VOOC 4.0 fast charging support fuels the phone and is also said to have 5G connectivity as well. Coming to the price, the OPPO Reno 3 is said to cost RMB 3,299 (around Rs 33,400) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant and RMB 3,599 (around Rs 36,500) for the 8GB RAM + 256GB variant. Since everything is based on rumours, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt until an announcement is made.
Separately, OPPO is also reportedly working on Reno S smartphone for India, as we exclusively reported. It’s said to be rebranded model of the Reno Ace that was launched in China last month but with the different camera setup. While the Reno Ace has a 48MP primary sensor, the Reno S is said to come with a 64MP unit. The Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC ‘ll power it and has support for 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge technology.
