After weeks of rumors and teasers, Oppo officially announced the F11 Pro today.
The F11 Pro’s biggest highlight is the 48-megapixel rear camera, which only a handful of phones at this point have and is paired with a 5MP camera for portraits. Apart from the sheer number of pixels, Oppo touts the camera’s low-light abilities and even includes an ultra night mode.
The 48MP rear camera is certainly the attention-grabber, but the F11 Pro also features a pop-up 16MP selfie camera. Thanks to its pop-up mechanism, the F11 Pro’s 6.53-inch full HD+ LCD display (2,340 x 1,080) is notch-free and covers 90.9 percent of the front.
Also bound to turn heads are the F11 Pro’s two colorways — Thunder Black and Aurora Green. The Thunder Black option in particular appears stunning, since it goes from a blue-ish purple on the bottom left to black in the middle and violet on the top right.
Elsewhere, the F11 Pro features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, the octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 processor, either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, either 64GB or 128GB of RAM, a huge 4,000mAh batery, and Android 9 Pie with Oppo’s ColorOS 6 software overlay.
Even though it’s nice to see Pie available out of the box, the Micro-USB port is unfortunate to see in 2019. Even with the older port, the F11 Pro’s battery supports Oppo’s proprietary VOOC 3.0 charging standard that takes the phone from empty to full in 80 minutes.
Oppo said the F11 Pro will first launch in India, followed by southeast Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, and other regions “in the near future.” We don’t have word on the F11 Pro’s pricing, though we’ll be sure to update this article once we receive that information.
The company also has a standard Oppo F11, which eschews a pop-up camera in favor of a waterdrop notch. There aren’t any other major spec changes here, but this model will be available in Fluorite Purple, Marble Green, and Jewelry White.
