The much-awaited OPPO F11 and OPPO F11 Pro have officially launched in Kenya. The OPPO F11 series is the successor to the OPPO F10 from last year. The F10 was marketed as the OPPO F9 Pro in some regions. The OPPO F11 series come with a pop up selfie shooter as the Chinese tech company shifts from the teardrop notch features on the OPPO F9.
We were hopeful that the OPPO F11 series was coming to Kenya after being announced in early March and now they’re finally here.
The phones pack similar specs except for the motorized pop up selfie shooter that the pro packs. The regular OPPO F11 still rocks the teardrop notch. This gives the OPPO F11 Pro an all screen display.
Here’s what else they feature:
- 6.53-inch display
- 1080 * 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~397 ppi density)
- 16 MP selfie camera
- a 48 MP main sensor
- depth-sensing 5 MP module
- Rear fingerprint sensor
- 4000mAh battery
- VOOC 3.0 fast charging (0% to 100% in under 80 minutes)
- Micro-USB 2.0 power port
- MTK P70 12 nm processor
- 6 GB RAM
- 64/128 GB onboard storage
- Android 9.0 (Pie); ColorOS 6
Other specs worth noting is that OPPO has upped the camera’s night-shooting capabilities similar to it’s competitors such as Huawei’s.
The cameras have been added several features for better lowlight portraits with modes such as ultranight mode, Dazzle color mode which enhances the saturation, AI scene recognition among the regular modes.
