The Oppo Reno 3 Pro 5G looks set to give Samsung's mid-range Galaxy A90 5G a headache
Brian Shen, Oppo’s VP of Global Marketing, has given his Twitter followers the first official peak at the forthcoming Reno3 Pro 5G handset. The render is cropped at the top left corner suggesting that this is where its punch hole selfie camera will be located. Shen claims that when it hits the market in December, at 7.7 mm thin, it will be the thinnest dual-mode 5G smartphone in the mid-range segment.
Shen also reveals that it will feature a glass body but leaves the rest of the Reno3 Pro 5G’s specifications to the rumor mill. To wit, there is speculation that the display will be a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio – a 90 Hz refresh rate is also tipped making it a very serious challenger to the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G, if accurate. It is expected to be powered by the yet-to-be-officially-unveiled Snapdragon 735 SoC which is fabricated on a 7 nm process and, as you would expect, supports 5G connectivity.
The Reno3 Pro 5G is also set to sport Sony’s 60 MP IMX686 sensor, a 32 MP front-facing camera and a large 4,500 mAh battery with VOOC 4.0 30 W fast charging. All of which suggests that the Reno3 Pro 5G could be the mid-range 5G handset to beat when it launches. Other than the Snapdragon 735 SoC, just about everything else about the rumored specifications suggest that it would be a competitive flagship if it was fitted with a Snapdragon 855 or 855 Plus.
