Barely seven months from the debut of the Reno2, OPPO introduces the next generation OPPO Reno3 series. The new series dumps the unique shark fin camera of old, now re-embracing the more “conventional” notch and punch-hole camera.
Pricing and availability
The OPPO Reno3 and Reno 3 Pro are available for purchase through all physical OPPO stores and authorised retail channels including official stores on Lazada, Shopee, as well as OPPO’s own online store.
The OPPO Reno3 with 8GB RAM + 128GB of storage retails for MYR1,699 while the Reno3 Pro with 8GB RAM + 256GB of storage goes for MYR2,399.
This is marginally more expensive than the Reno2 series when it launched last October.
With each purchase of either the Reno3 or Reno3 Pro, you’ll receive a free OPPO Enco W31 true wireless earbuds worth MYR259 for free.
OPPO Reno3 features and specs
The OPPO Reno3 packs a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch and also features an in-display fingerprint sensor.
This time around, OPPO ditches Qualcomm for MediaTek silicon, opting for a Helio P90 instead.
Camera-wise, the Reno3 boasts a quad-cam setup with a 48MP f/1.8 main shooter, a 13MP f/2.4 telephoto camera (5x hybrid zoom, 20x digital zoom), an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP f/2.4 mono lens for portrait photos.
The waterdrop notch houses a 44MP f/2.4 main camera that supports Ultra Night Mode and Slow-mo Selfies.
Keeping the device juiced is a large 4,025mAh battery that support VOOC Flash Charge 3.0. OPPO claims a charge time of just 30 minutes to give 50 per cent charge. On the other hand, a full charge takes 73 minutes.
OPPO Reno3 Pro features and specs
The OPPO Reno3 Pro features an identical 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a punch-hole camera on the top left corner.
The punch-hole houses a dual-selfie-camera consisting of a 44MP shooter and a 2MP depth sensor. The selfie camera can do impressive bokeh effects with Dual Lens Bokeh as well as low-light selfie shots with Ultra Night Selfie Mode.
On the rear, the quad-cam system comprises a 64MP f/1.8 main camera, 13MP f/2.4 telephoto lens, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP depth camera. The camera system is capable of 5x hybrid zoom and up to 20x digital zoom, similar to the old Reno2. It can also shoot Ultra Clear 108MP images that can produce poster-sized prints of 4.3 x 3.2 metres.
Utilising the MediaTek processors NPU, the Reno3 Pro can shoot exceptional night scenes with Ultra Dark Mode. Ultra Dark Mode is turned on automatically when lighting conditions are below 1lux.
The camera also offers Video Bokeh, AI Beauty Video, Video Zoom, and Ultra Steady Video 2.0 with dual-image stabilisation.
Like the non-Pro variant, the device packs a 4,025mAh battery. The key difference is that it supports 30W VOOC 4.0 fast-charging via USB-C. With the supplied 30W power brick, you can charge up the device in full in under 60 minutes.
Both devices run ColorOS 7 based on Android 10 out-of-the-box.
