Oppo Reno3 launches internationally with the MediaTek Helio P90 chipset and a 48MP primary camera

Oppo launched the Reno3 and Reno3 Pro devices in China back in December 2019. The Reno3 uses MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000L chipset. On the other hand, the Pro variant uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chip. The Snapdragon 765G is also used in the Redmi K30 and the Redmi K30 5G.

Oppo launched the Reno3 Pro internationally earlier this month. It comes with some features that are frankly different from what the Chinese version offers. Instead of the Snapdragon 765, the device sports MediaTek’s Helio P95 chipset. Also, there is a camera upgrade from the Chinese variant’s 48MP primary shooter to a 64MP shooter.

Now, Oppo has launched the Reno3 too internationally. Like the Reno3 Pro, the international version of the Reno3 is different from the Chinese version. According to reports, the international version of the Oppo Reno 3 ditched the Dimensity 1000L chip. It instead uses a MediaTek Helio P90 SoC.

The camera specs are also different, even though both variants sport quad-camera setups. While the Chinese variant of the Oppo Reno3 sports a 64MP Sony IMX 686 primary shooter, the international version uses a 48MP primary sensor. Along with this are a 13MP telephoto zoom lens, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a 2MP monochrome depth sensor. The front camera of the international variant sees an upgrade from the Chinese variant’s 32MP to 44MP.

Also, unlike the Chinese variant, the international variant of the Reno3 only goes as high as 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.

The Oppo Reno3 sports a 6.4-inch FHD+ display with a built-in fingerprint scanner. The device runs ColorOS 7 based on Android 10. It is powered by a 4,025mAh battery with support for VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge.

Oppo Reno3 International Price and Availability

We do not yet have information about the international pricing of the Oppo Reno3. However, considering that it does not use the more premium Dimensity 1000L chip, it will likely be cheaper than the Chinese variant’s CNY 3,399 (~480) starting price. Reports have it that the device is on Oppo Sri Lanka’s website in Midnight Black and Auroral Blue color options.
