With the Reno 2 now on sales in various markets, attention is gradually now been shifted to the next in Oppo’s Reno series lineup. A leak that emanated from Weibo earlier this month gave us the first clue that the Oppo Reno 3 might be arriving soon, and now we have aa clear official confirmation.
Oppo at the ColorOS 7 launch event in China earlier today officially confirmed the Oppo Reno 3 will be launching soon. How soon is soon? Well, the Chinese phone maker made it clear that the device will launch later in December, but has yet to give a definite date.
Obviously, the Reno 3 will succeed the Oppo Reno 2. And that it will do not only in name but also with some upgraded hardware. It will be the first from Oppo’s stable to boot ColorOS 7 out of the box. We are not sure if it will get the latest Android 10 flavor. However, Oppo did confirm that the device much like the upcoming Honor V30 will have support for 5G standalone and non-stand alone (SA/NSA) sub-6GHz networks.
