OPPO started off the Reno 3 series at the end of last year by launching OPPO Reno 3 and OPPO Reno 3 Pro. The highlights of these phones were the support for 5G that they came with. It’s February now and OPPO has decided to add one more device to the Reno 3 series. The latest OPPO Reno 3 Vitality Edition is basically the Reno 3 5G but with some modifications in the specs.
Oppo Reno 3 Vitality Edition
Design and Display
Design-wise there isn’t much to choose between the Reno 3 and the Reno 3 Vitality edition. The Oppo Reno 3 Vitality Edition comes with a 6.4-inch AMOLED Panel. It comes with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display features a waterdrop notch to accommodate the 32MP selfie camera. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 5 both on the front and rear end of the device.
Dimensity 1000L vs SD 765
We can know the difference between the two devices when we look at the specs sheets. While the original OPPO Reno 3 came with MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000L, the Reno 3 Vitality Edition packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 chipset. Both are 5G ready chipset targetted at the mid-range smartphone segment. We can’t think of any reason for switching to SD 765 as both the chipset offer similar performance in real-life usage.

Differences in the Camera
Another noticeable difference is in the camera. Though the Reno 3 Vitality Edition features a quad-camera setup as in the Reno 3, the former comes with a 48MP primary camera against the 64MP primary camera of the latter. The other sensors have been left unchanged. The Vitality edition features the same 8MP ultrawide sensor, 2MP Black and White sensor, and 2MP depth sensor.

Configurations and Color Options
While the Reno 3 came in two configurations 8GB/128GB and 12/128GB, the Vitality Edition only comes in 8GB/12GB memory configuration. Though the design remains unchanged in the Vitality Editon, it does come with different color options. You can choose between Moonlight Black, Sky Mirror White, and Streamer Gold.
The rest of the features of the new edition is identical to the original Reno 3. Both come with an optical fingerprint scanner mounted under the display. Both come with a 4,025mAH battery which supports VOOC 4.0 quick charging technology.
