The launch of the global variant of the OPPO Reno3 is right around the corner, and the smartphone likely flaunts quite a few major differences from its Chinese counterpart.

The Helio P95-powered device debuted as the world’s first 44-megapixel dual selfie camera phone. Gadget tipster Ishan Agarwal has revealed that OPPO is working on a global edition of the Reno3. He revealed that the Reno3 global version will be equipped with a MediaTek Helio P90 SoC, a 48-megapixel primary camera, and a 44-megapixel selfie sensor.

In terms of optics, the Reno3 could flaunt a 48-megapixel primary sensor paired with a 13-megapixel telephoto sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and a 2-megapixel mono sensor.
