Oppo’s VP of Global Marketing Brian Shen has tweeted out the first official teaser for the forthcoming Reno3 Pro 5G handset. According to Shen, the device is 7.7 mm thin putting it on track to be the thinnest dual-mode mid-range 5G handset on the market when it launches next month.

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.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
