OPPO Reno3 launches internationally with the MediaTek Helio P90

Chinese smartphone manufacturer OPPO launched the Reno3 and Reno3 Pro in China back in December last year. The mid-range Reno3 and Reno3 Pro featured MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000L chipset and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G SoC, respectively. However, when the company launched the Reno3 Pro internationally earlier this month, it packed in MediaTek’s Helio P95 chipset, instead of the Snapdragon 765G. Not only that, but the device also had some major differences in the camera department from its Chinese counterpart and it featured a 64MP primary sensor, instead of the 48MP sensor on the Chinese variant. Now, OPPO has finally launched the Reno3 internationally and it too isn’t the same as the device launched in China.

As per a recent report from NDTV Gadgets360, the international variant of the Reno3 packs in a MediaTek Helio P90 SoC instead of the Dimensity 1000L chip. While its design largely remains the same, it also has some major differences in the camera department. While the Chinese variant of the Reno3 featured a quad-camera setup with a 64MP Sony IMX 686 primary sensor, the international variant packs in a 48MP primary sensor, along with a 13MP telephoto zoom lens, an 8MP wide-angle sensor, and a 2MP monochrome sensor for depth perception. On the front, the international variant of the Reno3 features a 44MP selfie camera housed within the waterdrop-style notch, which is a decent step up from the 32MP selfie camera on the Chinese variant.

Powering the Reno3 is a 4,025mAh battery with support for VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge and much like the Chinese variant, it features a 6.4-inch FHD+ display with a fingerprint scanner built-in. Unlike the Chinese variant, however, the international Reno3 only features up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. In terms of connectivity, the Reno3 includes 4G LTE, Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi, GPS/A-GPS, and a USB Type-C port for charging and data syncing. The device runs OPPO’s ColorOS 7 based on Android 10. As of now, we have no information on international pricing, but considering the fact that it doesn’t feature the more premium Dimensity 1000L chip, the Reno3 is expected to feature a price tag lesser than its Chinese counterpart which starts at CNY 3,399 (~$485). The report further adds that the device is currently listed on OPPO Sri Lanka’s website in two color variants — Auroral Blue and Midnight Black.
