OPPO launched the global variant of the Reno3 Pro handset in India earlier this year in March. The smartphone was different from the Reno3 and Reno3 Pro 5G smartphones launched in China last year. The global variant has a dual front-camera setup instead of a single cutout like its Chinese counterpart, and is powered by the Helio P95, instead of the Snapdragon 765G.
In India, post the GST hike on April 1st, all smartphone makers had to increase the price of their smartphones. OPPO was no exception, and Reno 3 Pro was one of the smartphones to have received the price hike. However, the company has now reduced the pricing of the handset in the country and it’s now retailing at its original launch price.
