The Mediatek Dimensity 1000L has four Cortex-A77 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores in the CPU, while the GPU is Mali-G77. The chip manufacturer calls it “World’s fastest sub-6GHz 5G SoC” because it can reach up to 4.7 Gbps performance and supports the full range of networks from 2G to 5G.

Oppo promises the Reno 3 will be up to 20% faster than a platform with Cortex-A76 cores and will be even smarter – there is a custom APU 3.0, coupled with the chipset.

The Oppo Reno 3 also comes with VOOC 4.0 quick charge for the 4025mAh battery. The fingerprint scanner is under the screen, and of course, the user interface is Color OS 7.
