On: March 2, 2020

In December 2019, OPPO had launched the Reno3 and Reno3 Pro 5G smartphones in China. Today, the company has launched the global variant of the Reno3 Pro handset in India. The device is a bit different from its Chinese edition. Instead of a single punch-hole screen, it houses a display with a pill-shaped punch-hole for its dual front cameras. The Reno3 Pro has debuted in India as the world’s first smartphone with a 44-megapixel selfie camera. Also, the phone is equipped with all new MediaTek Helio P95 instead of the Snapdragon 765G chipset that powers its Chinese counterpart.
