The remaining lens includes a 13MP Telephoto lens, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP monochrome lens. The combination of these four cameras offers high-quality pictures and videos.
What further solidifies the Reno3 Pro’s claim is its capability to shoot awe-inspiring 108MP shots using OPPO’s vertical structure, quad-camera imaging system.
