UPDATE (November 29th, 2019):
An alleged Oppo Reno 3 Pro 5G render has been shared by LetsGoDigital, a Dutch publication. The render shows the devices from front revealing design similar to the one shared in the official teaser. It also shows a punch-hole in the top left corner which is meant for a single selfie shooter. Maybe this explains why Oppo refrained from showing the corner in the teaser image.
Additionally, Oppo's VP Brian Shen has confirmed that Reno 3 Pro 5G will come with a 4,025mAh battery. He tweeted this information after fans expressed concerns over battery capacity due to its only 7.7mm thickness.

If you are a tech enthusiast, you must be aware that smartphone companies are focused on releasing foldable phones and phones with 5G connectivity. Both of these are futuristic technologies and are supposed to change the way we use our devices. Oppo is one such smartphone maker interested in becoming one of the leaders. It is working on a 5G smartphone and has even shared a teaser ahead of the unveiling.
Brian Shen, Vice President and President of Global Marketing at Oppo, tweeted a teaser image of the Oppo Reno 3 Pro 5G. The image shows a glimpse of a smartphone that has almost negligible bezels. The top left corner of the phone is hidden which means it is hard to say if there is a punch-hole or not.
The tweet mentions that the Reno 3 Pro 5G will come with a glass body that should give it a premium feel. It will have only 7.5mm thickness excluding the camera lens bump. Shen is touting it as the thinnest dual-mode 5G phone in its price segment. It means the phone will offer compatibility with 5G Standalone (SA) as well as Non-standalone (NSA) bands.
