Oppo’s Global VP Shen Yiren revealed on Weibo that the Reno3 phones will have “360° antennas”, which ensure optimal connectivity regardless of how you hold the phone (i.e. vertically or horizontally).
The phone will also intelligently switch between 4G and 5G connections, depending on what you’re doing, the internal temperature and battery consumption. For example, launching a video will put the modem in 5G mode so that it can pre-load the video and start playback as quickly as possible.
By the looks of it, both the Oppo Reno3 and Reno3 Pro will have 5G versions, powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 and Snapdragon 765 chipsets, respectively. In both cases, the modem will be able to operate in SA and NSA modes, making it quite future proof.
Anyway, here’s a promo video from Oppo, which boasts about the 5G download speeds that the Reno3 is capable of:
Here are a couple of more videos, promoting the phone’s battery life despite measuring only 7.7mm thick.
