Oppo Reno3 Pro comes with a dual 44MP punch-hole selfie camera

How useful do you think dual selfie cameras are?


Back in December of last year, Oppo announced its Reno3 lineup in China with a Pro version sporting a 5G chipset. Fast forward to today, the company has announced an international Oppo Reno3 Pro. It comes with a dual 44MP punch-hole selfie camera and no 5G support.

Display and optics

On the front, the phone is built around a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED 20:9 panel. It has a Full HD+ resolution as well as an in-screen fingerprint scanner for security. Embedded in the display is the dual selfie camera. The unit is made up of a 44MP f/2.4 lens which is the highest for a selfie camera to date alongside a secondary 2MP depth sensor.

On the back, Oppo has gone for a vertical primary camera setup. This includes a 64MP main sensor, a 13MP telephoto one with 3x optical zoom, an 8MP ultra-wide snapper and a 2MP monochrome depth-sensing camera.

Processor and software

The Reno3 Pro is the first smartphone to ship with Mediatek’s new Helio P95 chipset. This has an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.2GHz and works alongside 8GB of RAM.

As for storage options, you get either 128GB or 256GB with the option to expand this further via the phone’s micro-SD card slot. Software wise, you will get Android 10 with Oppo’s ColorOS 7 on top.

Battery technology

Oppo smartphones are well known for their fast charging and the Reno3 Pro is no different. It comes with a 4,025mAh cell which supports VOOC Flash Charge 4.0, allowing up to 30W charging. The good thing for customers is that the said charging brick comes in the retail box of the phone.

Pricing and availability

The Oppo Reno3 Pro will launch in an 8GB/128GB configuration on March 6, available in Auroral Blue, Midnight Black and Sky White colour options priced at INR29,990 (Dh1,510.35). There is also an 8GB/256GB variant priced at INR32,990 (Dh1,661.44) but its release is yet to be confirmed. We will update you with local pricing and availability for the phone once announced.
