Oppo Reno 3 series will go official in China on December 26. The Oppo Reno 3 and the Reno 3 Pro 5G will take on the Redmi K30 4G and the Redmi K30 5G variants in China. The registration page for the Reno 3 series has already gone live, but the launch will happen at the end of this month only. The Reno 3 and the Reno 3 Pro will be the first phones to come with ColorOS 7 based on Android 10 out of the box. In a separate, Oppo’s child brand Realme also confirmed that the Realme X50 would feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset, which is the same chip that powered the Redmi K30 5G and will power the Reno 3 Pro 5G. The specs of the Realme X50 will be pretty much identical to the Reno 3 Pro 5G, similar to Oppo Reno Ace and Realme X2 Pro smartphones.

Oppo Reno 3 Pro 5G to Take on Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G

The Redmi K30 is currently the cheapest phone in the world with 5G network support. At a starting price of 1,999 Yuan (approx. Rs 20,500), the Redmi K30 offers some incredible specifications on paper. Right now, we don’t have the pricing details of the Oppo Reno 3 Pro 5G, but we’re expecting Oppo to price it aggressively and benefit the consumer. The Oppo Reno 3 will be a non-5G variant taking on the Redmi K30 4G.

As for the confirmed features, the Reno 3 Pro 5G will have the Snapdragon 765 chipset, punch-hole display, in-display fingerprint scanner, quad-camera setup on the back and a massive 4000mAh battery with back the device. The Oppo Reno 3 will feature slightly dated design with a teardrop notch on top of the display and the processor is also expected to be a different one on the Reno 3. Rest of the Oppo Reno 3 specs might be identical to the Reno 3 Pro 5G.

The Chinese company also confirmed that it would launch Oppo Enco Free true wireless earbuds during the Oppo Reno 3 series launch event. Notably, a mysterious Oppo smartphone with model number CPH2015 passed BIS certification and it’s expected to be a model of the Reno 3 series.

Realme X50 to Make Use of Snapdragon 765G SoC

In addition to Redmi and Oppo, Realme will also join the race of offering affordable 5G smartphones. The Realme X50 will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset, the company has confirmed officially on Weibo. Right now, we don’t have many details regarding the Realme X50, but it will surely take on the Redmi K30 5G in China. It’s also rumoured that there will be a smaller variant called Realme X50 Lite which will be the non-4G variant of the handset.

Realme may not launch this phone by the end of this month, but we’re expecting the Realme X50 to be the company’s first phone for 2020. The Realme X50 may not reach the Indian market anytime soon, thanks to the usage of Snapdragon 765G SoC.

OnePlus is also said to come out with a mid-range phone next year (possibly the OnePlus 8 Lite) and the phone will most likely make use of the Snapdragon 765G chipset itself. OnePlus may be looking at the mid-range segment again to offer 5G connectivity at affordable prices, so the OnePlus 8 Lite could be exclusive to the nations where 5G network support is available at the moment.
