Oppo Reno 3 may ditch “shark-fin” pop-up camera for a punch-hole solution

Oppo Reno 3

Oppo had been really intense over the past two years. After debuting a subsidiary, Realme, that is now the fastest-growing smartphone brand in the world, the company released Oppo Reno lineup this year. These smartphones have been quite a hit with compelling specifications, neat design and unique camera mechanisms. The Oppo Reno devices have been coming with either elevating mechanisms or notches to house the selfie camera. However, a new leak suggests that the Chinese firm will be replacing its legendary “shark-fin” pop-up camera in the Oppo Reno 3. Instead, we will have a punch-hole solution which is a bit more intrusive. It’s the very same picture that revealed the Dual 5G mode. After further inspection, we noticed something unusual.


An alleged screenshot of the Reno 3 has popped out in the Weibo’s kingdom. Interestingly enough, it shows an empty space at the top on the left side. Thus suggesting that the smartphone’s display will have a hole in the top-left corner. Since we can’t verify the authenticity of this leak, we recommend you to digest this news with a pinch or two of salt. It wouldn’t be the first time that a company replaces a pop-up mechanism for a punch-hole solution. For instance, Xiaomi will ditch the solution currently used in the Redmi K20 series for a pill-shaped punch hole in the Redmi K30.

The leaked screenshot has an unusual free space at the top.

While the punch0hole trend will keep up for the next few years, we can’t argue if this isn’t your cup of tea. After all, it’s a small hole that will eat some space in your display forever.

When it comes to the Oppo Reno 3 specifications, an alleged spec sheet leaked a while ago pointing that the unannounced Snapdragon 735 SoC will be leading the show. Moreover, it will come with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of Internal Storage.

The Reno 3 will feature a 6.5-inch AMOLED FHD+ 90Hz panel that draws power from a 4,500mAh battery. This generous cell will be fed with 30W fast-charging. Be it a punch-hole or pop-up camera, we know that selfie snapper will have 32MP. On the back, reports indicate the presence of a Quad-Camera array with a 60MP primary module.
