Today's Oppo has announced OPPO Reno3 pro and added ever-more-convoluted to Reno series. It is a mid-range model that is a completely different variant from the OPPO Reno 3 Pro 5G launched in China in last December.

OPPO Reno3 Pro comes with a screen of 6.4-inch having an aspect ratio of 20: 9 and 1080p OLED panel with a fingerprint sensor on the screen and a pill-shaped cutout for two punch hole camera modules. The main one is a 44-megapixel sensor, apparently a world first, and is backed with a 2-megapixel sensor to obtain a depth of field information.
A higher refresh rate would have been nice, but otherwise, the screen is excellent. I also like the orderly effect where the pixels around the piercer glow brightly when you use face unlock.
The Reno 3 Pro feels thinner and lighter than most of its pairs, with 8.1 mm thickness and 175 g. Otherwise, however, its design is quite unremarkable: it is another Chinese phone without a bezel with a degraded finish and cameras everywhere that the eye can see.
Oppo stated that they have designed and brought the finishes to appeal the sky by a two-color variant. You can see above is the "Auroral Blue" variant, supposedly inspired by the Northern Lights, while there are also other color variants "Midnight Black" and sunrise-pink-ish "Sky White" are available.
OPPO Reno3 Pro packs with is a large camera bump on the back and houses four more cameras. The main rear camera has a 64-megapixel sensor and f / 1.7 lens, while there is also a 13-megapixel f / 2.4 2x telephoto lens, an ultra-wide-angle 8-megapixel f / 2.2 and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. Oppo claims a hybrid zoom of up to 5x and a digital zoom of 20x; Indeed, in my brief test photos, they looked pretty good up to 5 times, although I wouldn't extend it too much. However, the device I used was using non-final camera software.
Other specifications include the new MediaTek Helio P95 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB or 256 GB of expandable storage, two SIM slots, a separate microSD slot, and a headphone jack.
The 4,025 mAh battery can be quickly charged at 30 W with the Oppo VOOC 4.0 system, which according to the company will take it from 0 to 50 percent in 20 minutes and 100 percent at 56 Probably not necessary to say this, but unlike the Chinese Reno 3 Pro 5G, this phone is not compatible with 5G.
The Oppo Reno3 pro comes out of the box with the latest Android 10 and UI ColorOS 7 on top of it.
The 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage edition of the Reno3 Pro is priced at Rs. 29,999 (~ $ 416) and its sale will begin on March 6.
