One thing we observed about the OPPO Reno 3, which may be launched in Nigeria, very soon is the way it blurs the line between a flagship and mainstream smartphones. For a mid-range device, it has all the bells and whistles of an ultra flagship like the Samsung S20 and iPhone 11. The most notable feature is its multiple rear cameras, hybrid zoom, Super AMOLED displays, punch hole front-facing cameras, and high-wattage charging. If there is anything you might be looking for in an ultra-premium smartphone, the OPPO Reno3 Pro probably has it.
In general terms, the Reno3 Pro has no fewer than five cameras plus a depth-of-field sensor. On the back, there are four cameras: a 64MP standard camera with a 1/1.72-inch sensor and f/1.8 aperture; a 13MP telephoto with a 1/3.4-inch sensor f/2.4 aperture; an 8MP ultra-wide-angle with a 1/4-inch sensor and 109-degree field of view; and a 2MP depth camera with a 1/5-inch sensor. When working together, these cameras offer you 0.6x wide-angle shots, 1x normal photos, 2x optical zoom, 5x hybrid zoom, and 20x digital zoom.
On the front, the Reno3 Pro flaunts the World’s first 44+2MP dual punch-hole camera. The selfie camera also has a dual lens bokeh and can shoot clear pictures in low light conditions using the Ultra Dark Mode.
You can also record videos in 4K at 30fps and slow-mo in 720p at 240fps or 1080p at 120fps. The Reno3 Pro also supports video bokeh effects. Using either the rear camera or the front-facing camera, you can add a shallow depth-of-field effect and simulate out of focus backgrounds. Like the bokeh effects in the photo mode, it generally works well, but there will be situations when it just goes wrong.
From what was launched in India, a market that has been running similarly to the Nigerian market, the Reno3 Pro is all about the cameras. The most interesting features are the Super AMOLED display, the punch hole for the front-facing camera, and the super duper fast VOOC charging system. The most interesting thing about the Reno3 Pro’s cameras is the synergy all 6 cameras have, there is even an integration between the hybrid zoom and portrait mode, and the high image quality doesn’t make user experience slow or difficult.
Our sources also hint that there will be a very pocket friendly variant in the form of the Reno3, which will be a slightly watered down version of the Reno3 Pro but will however share many high-end specs in the same vein.
Both the Reno3 and Reno3 Pro will run on the same Color OS 7, powered by the same 4,025 mAh battery, secured by an In-display fingerprint and face unlock and flaunt the same screen size of 6.4 inches.
The major differentiating factor for the Reno3 will be the OLED waterdrop 44MP Ultra Night Selfie Camera, 48MP Quad Camera that supports 5x Hybrid Zoom capabilities, 5V41 VOOC 3.0 Charging System and the general phone design and colors.
We sincerely hope OPPO Nigeria launches these same beasts that were launched in India in this market very soon as rumored.
