Not to be mistaken with the Oppo Reno3 Pro, which was released back in March 2020, the Oppo Reno3 Pro 5G which we have for assessment right here is now creating its way to Europe and other components of the globe following a profitable debut in China.
Curiously, Oppo has decided to sell the telephone as Reno3 Pro 5G in Australia, and Eastern Europe, whereas in Western Europe the telephone will be identified as Discover X2 Neo.
With that out of the way, from right here on, we will be calling the telephone Reno3 Pro 5G due to the fact this is the name of the device we received but preserve in thoughts that our assessment findings will undoubtedly apply to the Discover X2 Neo, as well.
Regardless of the name, the telephone will draw your focus with strong hardware and premium style. The essential standout attributes are the 5G connectivity (duh!), the 90Hz AMOLED screen, the complete set of camera focal lengths (standard, ultra-wide, and telephoto), the premium style and really feel, and the 30W quickly charging. It also comes with a base storage of 128GB.

Even so, the 5G connectivity may not be an benefit compared to other similarly priced options as it drives the cost up, and there is no actual usability in the much better portion of Europe. You’d struggle to uncover a functioning 5G network in Europe, specifically in Eastern Europe, exactly where the telephone will sell. And in standard Oppo style, the organization has opted for a rather premium launch cost tag in a super competitive marketplace segment.
With a beginning cost of about 630-660 (that is at least the anticipated cost of the Reno3 Pro 5G as per the Discover X2 Neo cost in the UK), the telephone has a lot of proving to do alongside the far more established brands in the European marketplace that can afford to charge a cost premium. And let’s face it, 5G-capabilities will not be such a enormous obtain drive in 2020 on the old continent exactly where the demand for mid-variety 5G devices is reduce than in Asia.
But that does not imply there are not other motives to contemplate Oppo’s contender for your subsequent upper mid-variety smartphone. Let’s see how the battery fares, and also if the screen is any excellent and how it holds as a everyday driver.
