OPPO Reno3 Pro launched: Grabs the “world’s first” title for its 44MP dual punch-hole camera

OPPO Reno3 Pro launched price specifications

OPPO’s phones have always been about “cameras” first. Their emphasis on mobile photography is made more evident by the taglines they come up with their new products; like “Selfie Expert” on OPPO F1. The company even had the “camera phone” slogan until not very long ago. Well, I’m certainly not leading you guys to reveal that OPPO’s gone rogue now, no. At an event held in New Delhi, India, OPPO has unveiled its latest mid-ranger – the Reno3 Pro. Keeping up to the trend of bringing some “world-first” feature in the company’s Reno lineup of smartphones, the new OPPO Reno3 Pro comes with the first-ever 44MP dual punch-hole camera and the newest MediaTek Helio P95 chipset. Let’s find out more:

OPPO Reno3 Pro Overview

Design & Display

Nothing fancy on the design of the Reno3 Pro, as the phone comes with a regular design you’d expect from a 2020 mid-range smartphone. The phone’s got glass front/back and some reflective color options, while the quad-camera arrangement sits vertically on the back. Similarly, OPPO Reno3 Pro is a light phone as well, weighing just 175 grams.

OPPO Reno3 Pro display

In terms of display, the phone has got a flat 6.4-inches Super E3 AMOLED display with the regular 60Hz refresh rate and 100% DCI-P3 coverage. And thanks to the dual punch-hole cutout on the top left side of the phone, OPPO Reno3 Pro achieves a whopping 91.5% screen-to-body ratio. With a higher 90Hz refresh rate gaining the mainstream momentum every day, I was a little surprised to find out that the Reno3 Pro doesn’t come with it.

Camera

The innovations on the phone begin right here, the cameras. Let’s talk about the rear cameras first. OPPO Reno3 Pro has joined the 64MP quad-camera bandwagon that we’ve seen in so many other mid-range smartphones like the Redmi Note 8 Pro, Poco X2, etc. Apart from the 64MP primary lens, the phone employs a 13MP telephoto lens, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP B&W monochrome sensor.

Apart from the hardware, OPPO’s embedded some nifty photo/videography abilities on the Reno3 Pro as well. The phone is capable of 5x hybrid zoom and up to 20x digital zoom. Video bokeh is another highlight of the phone, and so is the new Ultra Steady Video 2.0.

Well, let’s get to the first “world-first” feature on the OPPO Reno3 Pro; and that’s the 44MP dual punch-hole cutout alongside a 2MP depth sensor.

Performance

Another world-first feature on the phone is the recently announced Helio P95 chipset from MediaTek. This is a 4G device, and there’s also the Reno3 Pro 5G, which is powered by the more powerful Snapdragon 765G with an integrated 5G modem. Here, the Helio P95 offers some minimal upgrades over the P90, which can be found in terms of AI performance and camera capabilities.

It has a single 8GB RAM configuration, though there’s 128 and 256GB internal storage options. And don’t expect the phone to pack a faster UFS storage protocol. The F2FS file storage on the OPPO Reno3 Pro isn’t upgradeable by using a microSD card either.

Moreover, the phone also comes equipped with Hi-Res Dolby Atmos stereo speakers and a cooling mechanism for your intense gaming situations. The phone runs on the latest ColorOS 7 based on Android 10.

Battery

In terms of battery, it’s got a 4025mAh cell and uses the 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0, which the company claims can take from 0 to 50% in 20 minutes.
