The World’s First 44MP Dual punch-hole camera

OPPO smartphones have always been praised for their front camera capabilities. With the new OPPO Reno3 Pro, you have at your disposal the world’s first 44MP+2MP dual punch-hole camera setup. A natural result of this kind of hardware is high-quality, detailed selfies with excellent bokeh.

But the Reno3 Pro doesn’t stop at that.

This high-resolution 44MP ultra-clear main camera — combined with the 2MP depth of field lens also lets the Reno3 Pro capture images with bokeh effects. The sheer versatility of this setup is demonstrated by the fact that the dual front-facing cameras also get a dedicated ultra-night selfie mode. No matter what the lighting situation is or whether you use the front camera or the rear cameras, you will always end up capturing high-quality images with the OPPO Reno3 Pro. In fact, the front camera showcases the first application of dual-lens bokeh and the ultra-night mode algorithm in front cameras

Another noteworthy aspect of the device is the design of the dual punch-hole setup, that brings unique aesthetics and makes Reno3 Pro one of the best-designed smartphones.

Capture 108MP clear images with 64MP Zoom quad-cameras

The OPPO Reno3 Pro builds upon the reputation of its highly-acclaimed predecessors. The quad-camera setup that the phone gets at the rear endows it with some serious image capturing abilities. The rear camera gets a 64MP Zoom quad-camera setup that uses OPPO’s vertical structure of the HD four-camera imaging system to generate an Ultra Clear 108MP image. This high-resolution mode lets users observe details within pictures that you never thought were possible with smartphone cameras. To cite an example, a 108MP image will let user print outdoor signs that measure 4.3m x 3.2m without loss of detail. What is even more remarkable is the fact that all of the rear cameras — including the ultra-rear main camera, telephoto lens, and the ultra-wide-angle lens support OPPO’s new multi-frame composition technology.

The list of things you could do with the 108MP image mode is honestly speaking, endless. For art lovers, this could mean taking images of paintings and intricate artwork and appreciate never-seen-before details within them. For nature lovers, this could mean capturing close up shots of wildlife, leaves, and foliage with staggering level of detail. All thanks to the OPPO Reno3 Pro’s high pixel density that, apart from outputting higher image resolution, also captures more information with each pixel. The phone’s high-resolution sensor also aids in the accurate capturing of facial details, making it an excellent tool for portraits. These image-capturing capabilities are far beyond the realm of current-generation 48MP cameras.

The OPPO Reno3 Pro is as versatile as any camera phone can get. With its quad-camera setup, the Reno3 Pro handles a wide array of lighting conditions and situations. The camera also gets a dedicated ultra-dark mode for challenging, low light situations. This is apart from its capability to zoom into far subjects with 5x Hybrid and 20x Digital zoom. The ultra-wide-angle lens further boosts the phone’s capabilities and enables users to add a fresh perspective to their photography skills and experiment with fresh angles and framing techniques. It also offers a more powerful visual impact by offering a more convenient composition even in limited space and can easily capture 109-degree photos after accounting for distortion.

The OPPO Reno3 Pro is set to launch on March 2 in India.
