Oppo Reno 5G and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G both are equipped with the same Snapdragon 855 chipset backed by a Snapdragon X50 modem which makes the latter, the most affordable 5G handset available in Europe for now.
As for the specs, all three handsets have their highlighting features. Oppo Reno also comes with a Snapdragon 855 along with the 10X lossless zoom that Oppo has been boasting about for so long.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G is a much heftier upgrade than its predecessor Mi Mix 3. It has shifted up to Snapdragon 855 from the previous 845 in its predecessor. Huawei Mate 20X 5G has a huge 7.2-inch OLED panel, is equipped with Kirin 980 and a Balong 5000 5G chipset, and draws its power from the mammoth 5000mAh battery.
