The OPPO Reno 3 4G retains the 6.4-inch display with FHD+ resolution from its Pro variant. However, the latest offering comes with a waterdrop notch instead of a punch-hole cutout. Unlike the Pro variant, there is a thick chin at the bottom of the display. The design is similar to the smartphone’s Chinese counterpart. The Reno 3 4G comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a glass back panel that houses a quad-camera setup at the top left corner. 

The Reno 3 4G also borrows the Pro variant’s camera setup apart from the primary sensor.

The smartphone offers 5x hybrid zoom and 20x digital zoom along with features like Ultra Dark Mode, Ultra Steady Video, Video Bokeh etc. In the front, the Reno 3 4G is fitted with a 44MP selfie snapper.
