The recently-announced OPPO Reno3 Pro is a powerful camera smartphone. Not only does it feature a 64MP quad-camera setup on the back, it’s also the world’s first phone with 44-megapixel dual selfie cameras. However, one of the key aspects about the smartphone is the MediaTek Helio P95 chipset that powers it, offering advanced AI capabilities and the HyperEngine Game tech for a smooth gaming performance. That’s not all, as the chipset elevates the user experience in several other departments too, and that’s what we’ll be talking about in this article. Here are five factors that make the OPPO Reno3 Pro a great buy, and how the P95 chipset helps drive most of them.

1) Versatile, AI-powered cameras

The OPPO Reno3 Pro features four cameras on the back, highlighted by a 64-megapixel primary sensor. On the front, there’s a dual-camera with a 44-megapixel main sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. Both these hardware capabilities are possible thanks to the MediaTek Helio P95 processor, which supports high-resolution, multi-camera setups. In fact, the rear camera setup, with its varied sensors, makes the Reno3 Pro a versatile shooter. This lets users get creative, for they can try out different types of shots in a variety of different conditions, say shoot in ultra-wide or go closer to the subject with optical zoom.

Apart from that, the chipset also powers AI enhancements for the camera. One of the ways that helps is in improving low-light photos with Ultra Night Mode using AI Noise Reduction. In simple words, that means you’ll get impressive images even in poor lighting conditions and that too, without any noise. Then there’s AI Beauty Video, which lets you get bokeh in selfie videos, keeping your face in focus while the rest of the background is nicely blurred. How’s that for your next vlog? 

2) Smooth gaming experience

For PUBG lovers, the OPPO Reno3 Pro works well as a gaming device, thanks to the powerful MediaTek Helio P95 chipset’s IMG PowerVR GM 9446 graphics processing unit (GPU) and the HyperEngine technology. The latter improves the Wi-Fi and LTE latency while gaming to reduce network lag, apart from enhancing gameplay in a myriad of other ways. Now we don’t have to explain the significance of even a millisecond while playing PUBG, but seasoned players would tell you that could potentially be the difference between killing your rival or getting killed yourself.

The GPU offers better optimisation of device hardware to improve frame rates while gaming. It also helps deliver premium picture quality with better sharpness, contrast, and HDR visuals, with the graphics supposed to be 10 percent more powerful as compared to previous generations. The P95 chipset also manages system resources efficiently. All these different aspects work together to improve overall gaming performance without impacting battery life significantly.

3) Gorgeous display

The display is a vital aspect for any smartphone user. Aiming to deliver an immersive experience, the Reno3 Pro offers a class-leading 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a punch-hole cut-out for its dual selfie cameras. The display offers full HD+ resolution and comes with TUV Rheinland certification, meaning it’s easy on the eyes thanks to reduced blue light. The fact that the MediaTek Helio P95 SoC supports up to full HD+ resolution displays and HDR visuals, lets smartphone manufacturers offer these capabilities on their devices.

4) Endurance 

The OPPO Reno3 Pro packs a 4,025mAh battery that’s enough to last a day and then some more. While this battery capacity is pretty good, the credit for the smartphone’s long battery life also goes to the superb resource management by the MediaTek Helio P95 chipset. And when you do need to juice up the smartphone, the 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 support helps in charging it up quickly.

5) Connectivity 

OPPO’s Reno3 Pro boasts dual 4G SIM connectivity, which means that users can get 4G speeds on both SIMs. The P95 SoC supports the latest 4G LTE WorldMode modem that enables this feature and it works great even in crowded areas such as airports, offices, malls, etc. Of course, the chipset also supports the usual connectivity options such as Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, and GPS.

To sum it up… 

There’s no denying that the OPPO Reno3 Pro is a compelling smartphone, all thanks to the quad- camera setup, a powerful battery with fast charging, a stunning display, and more. With the MediaTek Helio P95 powering most of these features behind the scenes, the smartphone promises a smooth and wholesome experience.
