Oppo Reno 3 price
OPPO is yet to officially announce the price of the Reno 3 4G. It will be less expensive compared to the 5G version, which sells for the equivalent of Rs 36,000 in China (for the base 8GB+128GB version). The handset is available in two color options: Auroral Blue and Midnight Black. It remains unclear if the OPPO Reno 3 4G will ever make it to India because OPPO already sells the OPPO Reno3 Pro in the country with almost the same specs.
