The OPPO Reno3 series has been teased again in even more detail by its OEM ahead of these phones' late December 2019 launch. This time, the company has let the base model's processor name slip. It seems this device will be powered by the heretofore-unannounced MediaTek 1000L chipset.

Various leaks have pointed to the prospect of a third-generation Reno device that will run on a MediaTek chipset (known as the MT6885) that, while not the new premium-tier Dimensity 1000, still integrates 5G. Its maker OPPO has just confirmed this rumor, going so far as to reveal the name of this new processor in a new round of teasers for its new mobile device series.

Accordingly, fans of the Reno line can anticipate that one of its newest additions will run on the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L. This, presumably, is a variation on the Taiwanses silicon giant's latest flagship in which the L may stand for something like "Light". Therefore, while it has 5G integration (as confirmed by OPPO), it may not share other compelling attributes (such as a 7-nanometer architecture) with the full-on Dimensity variant.

This new teaser offers additional juicy tidbits about the Reno3, namely that it will have a 4025mAh battery capable of charging at up-to-date VOOC 4.0 speeds. It is also mentioned that it will be 7.96 millimeters (mm) in depth; on the other hand, its Pro counterpart will be 0.26mm thinner. Hopefully, this will not have a negative impact on this more premium, 5G Snapdragon 765G-powered, variant's own battery life.
