  • Oppo Reno 3 series phones will have a 360-degree antenna design
  • The wraparound antenna design is there to ensure better signal reception
  • Oppo Reno 3’s MediaTek 6885 outscored Snapdragon 765G and Exynos 980

Oppo Reno 3 series will go official on December 26 in China, and we already know a fair deal about the upcoming phones, thanks to various leaks and official teasers. Now, a senior Oppo executive has revealed that the Oppo Reno 3 and Oppo Reno 3 Pro will feature a 360-degree surround antenna design to offer better signal reception so that network stability is maintained irrespective of the way users hold the phone. Additionally, the Oppo Reno 3 has been spotted on AnTuTu database and is tipped to pack MediaTek 6885 SoC. Read on for more information on Oppo Reno 3 series antenna design and Oppo Reno 3 expected specifications. 

Oppo VP Brian Shen revealed in a Weibo post that the Oppo Reno 3 series phones, both of which have been confirmed to offer dual-mode 5G (SA + NSA) support, will feature a 360-degree wraparound antenna design that will surround almost the entire frame of the phone in order to ensure better signal reception. This will reportedly come in handy when users need a faster and more stable connectivity for tasks like video streaming or playing demanding online games.

There are concerns floating around the industry that the mmWave 5G network, despite the huge speed gains, is plagued by poor signal penetration and lower range, which is why smartphone makers will have to work on the antenna design to make sure that 5G phones don't suffer from network reception problems. (Remember, "you are holding it wrong"). The image shared by Shen also suggests that the area covered by users' hand might block the signals, but the uncovered area in the phone's upper half region will make sure that network reception is not an issue.
