Earlier today, OPPO released the OPPO Reno 3A in Japan. It’s equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, which unfortunately does not support 5G. Despite that, it features a fairly strong set of specs and features, and it’s fairly pricey at 39,800 yen, or about $372.
The OPPO Reno 3A is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor and 6GB of RAM + 128GB of storage. The front panel uses a 6.44-inch AMOLED water drop screen, making it similar to the Reno 3 5G and Reno 3 Youth Edition, but it’s slightly larger.
The Reno 3A uses a quad-camera module on the back, including a 48MP f/1.7 main camera + 8MP f/2.2 super wide-angle + 2MP f/2.4 depth of field sensor and 2MP f/2.4 macro camera. The front camera uses a 16MP f/2.0 lens.
In other respects, the Reno 3A is IP68 waterproof, equipped with 4,025 mAh battery, has USB-C but no fast charging, supports Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC, and it runs on ColorOS 7.1. It comes in two colour options, those being either black or white.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 is an upgraded version of Snapdragon 660, which was released in 2019. It’s built on a new 11nm process, and the GPU was upgraded to an Adreno 610. It’s clocked lower than the original, but it performs better in all other respects, so it’ll be interesting to see how the new device does.
