While most people would be impressed by OPPO Reno3 Pro's 64MP quad rear camera and the world's first 44MP dual front camera system, something that may surprise you is how powerful the device actually is. If you're looking for a mid-range smartphone that performs at a high level, the OPPO Reno3 Pro may just be the perfect option.

The OPPO Reno3 Pro (8GB RAM + 255GB ROM) is now available at RM 2,099 in Malaysia.

Great selfies even in the dark
With the 44MP front camera, you can also take amazing selfies and portraits even in the dark without the hassle of turning on the flashlights.

Ultra Steady Video Mode
When it comes to video, the OPPO Reno3 Pro has refined their renowned Ultra Steady Video Mode in the previous Reno model to let you take steady videos of up to 60fps quality. For better stability, activate Ultra Steady Video Pro mode when taking videos. Once you've shot your videos, you can easily edit them using Soloop, an in-built video editor programme.

2. Another thing you'll enjoy is the Super AMOLED display + Dolby Atmos: the best combo for Netflix binge-watching

The Reno3 Pro has upgraded its Super AMOLED Screen with E3 luminescent material, which brings a much higher level of brightness than E1 and E2, so that even under bright light of daytime, texts and images are clearly visible on the screen. More than brightness, the Super AMOLED Screen includes all DCI-P3 colour gamut, which is also excellent in the colour display. Meanwhile, the power consumption of E3 screen has been reduced to minimise the bad viewing experience caused by aging AMOLED screen. 

This makes the screen last longer, while the anti-blue light mode will substantially reduce the proportion of harmful blue light, to lessen the damage of long-time phone use to the eyes. For this, OPPO Reno3 Pro has been recognised by the TÜV Rheinland Full Care Display Certification, ensuring world-class protection for users’ eyes. This means the smartphone has passed various aspects of testing, including display quality, eye protection technology, and user health.

Designed for those who love to binge watch new seasons on Netflix, the Reno3 Pro is equipped with optimised power consumption and temperature control, enabling longer watch time up to 14 hours, with enhanced using experience, while preventing overheat. 

In terms of sound effect, Reno3 Series devices support Dolby Atmos, which delivers not only an improvement on regular A/V content, but also offers a close-to-action stereo effect for the Dolby Atmos certificated content. All the improvement on software makes OPPO Reno3 Series a portable home theater that provides a remarkable, immersive feast for the eyes and ears. Besides, OPPO Reno3 Series has also optimised the network connection to achieve faster pre-loading speed and less waiting time.

OPPO has made great effort, through multiple innovations on A/V, to enhance both software and hardware of Reno3 Series. With Netflix HD Certification, HD videos are available via the pre-installed Netflix App on Reno3 Series, putting high-definition videos in your pocket. With the HD video quality, the whole experience will feel like a small pocket cinema.

3. You also won't have to worry about performance speed or storage space with the all-new Reno3 Pro

ColorOS7 based on Android 10 features a number of eye catching changes. With a cleaner look, the display appears much more pleasing to the eye, with added customisation variety for personal preference among users. A few features worth mentioning are the Always-on Dark Mode, Icon customisation, and App lock. 

The Always-On Dark Mode also works on third party apps such as Instagram or Facebook. Other than that, with the Always-On Dark Mode on, power consumption reduces by 38%, which extends battery life for several more hours!

Exclusive to ColorOS 7, it is also currently the only system that can customize icons to your liking.

The security also receives improvements with the APP Lock. This allows apps to be hidden or locked from people other than the owner of the phone for privacy and security purposes. There is an additional Private Safe setting that encrypts files, images, videos, and important documents for that extra security.
