Following Qualcomm’s announcement, Oppo was quick to confirm that it will be one of the first OEMs to implement the just-announced Snapdragon 765G chipset, on the upcoming Reno3 Pro 5G (opens in new tab).
Oppo had teased that it will be joining the 5G party with a premium mid-range smartphone of its own in December. Eventually, the company executives confirmed that it will be their first dual-mode 5G smartphone.
A first look at OPPO Reno3 Pro 5G - it will feature a glass body with a thickness of just 7.7mm (excluding the lens), which may just be the thinnest dual-mode 5G phone in it’s price segment. 👀 pic.twitter.com/KD9goOTD6bNovember 28, 2019
It was soon followed by a teaser, which gave us a better look at the front of the device, revealing a curved display with pretty slim bezels. The top-left corner of the screen was cropped out, leading some to believe that it could sport a punch-hole selfie camera. If not, then it could mark a return to a pop-up camera.
The Oppo Reno3 Pro 5G is also slated to be one of the slimmest 5G smartphones around, coming in at just 7.7mm. It will weigh less than 180g, making it a very comfortable device to wield. Even with that, it will house a decently-sized 4,025mAh battery. It’s safe to assume that VOOC fast charging will also make an appearance.
The Oppo Reno3 Pro will be unveiled later this month, with a global launch expected in early 2020. Powered by the 7nm Snapdragon 765G, it will be one of the more affordable 5G smartphones around, while bringing flagship-grade performance and the Snapdragon Elite Gaming suite.
