Rumor | There will be an OPPO Find X3 Lite in 2021, which will come as a rebranded Reno5
The OPPO Find X3 may have been spotted tearing up benchmarks in new leaks ahead of its launch. Now, the prolific leaker Evan Blass claims that it is to follow its predecessor in having a Lite variant in its series. This prospect led to an admittedly underwhelmed reception here on NBC in 2020. However, it looks like the putative X3 Lite has what it takes to meet with more approval.
Its previous generation was in fact a re-brand of the low-impact Reno Youth Edition for markets such as Europe. However, Blass asserts that OPPO has had a re-think for 2021, and will make the full-on vanilla Reno5 variant the Find X3 Lite instead.
With its quad 64MP camera, 6.4-inch 90Hz AMOLED display and Snapdragon 765G processor, its potential re-badging has the makings of good news indeed. On the other hand, the same SoC may seem a little worn out by the time such a device launches later this year.
On the other hand, these phones will reportedly launch under their original names in some markets such as Thailand, which may make their global roll-out a little confusing. Then again, there may be some small differences between each regional variant: for example, the 5 is now said to drop its Reno Glow branding in order to become the Find X3 Lite.
