OPPO Kenya is kickstarting the year by launching the Reno11 series in the country later next week.
The biggest change is the new camera lens alignment inside the distinctive pill-shaped camera island. The camera lenses get upgraded as well – at least for the main camera with OPPO switching the 64MP primary that was in the Reno10 for a 50MP main that now comes with OIS – a much-needed feature that will come in handy for this camera-centric lineup.
It’s worth noting that this is the same 50MP main camera that was in the Reno10 Pro – it also had OIS.

The rest of the cameras of the Reno11 series including the Pro version remain standard from the Reno10 series – you get the 32MP portrait telephoto with 2X optical zoom and an 8MP ultrawide. You also get a 32MP selfie camera as well. All cameras can shoot up to 4K video including the front-facing camera too(finally)
Just like the Reno10 series, the Reno11 lineup comes powered by MediaTek Dimensity 7050 chipset paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. They boot up Android 14 and ColorOS 14 with the latter adding 8GB of virtual RAM. Reno11 Pro ships with the more powerful MediaTek 8200 processor compared to the Snapdragon 778G chipset of the Reno10 Pro.
Reno11 series comes with a 10-bit 6.7″ AMOLED curved screen sporting a 120Hz refresh rate, 950 nits brightness, HDR10+ support and 100%+ sRGB/DCI-P3 wide colour gamut.
There’s a 5000mAh battery inside that supports 67W fast wired PD 3.0 charging for the base Reno11 smartphone while the Pro gets a 4600mAh battery with 80W fast charging. The chargers come packed inside the box.
Other features include an IR blaster, optical under-display fingerprint reader, glass back design with Asahi Glass AGC DT-Star2 protection for the display, dual microphones and dual stereo speakers.
Pricing, Launch And Availability Details
OPPO has set the launch date to Thursday 25th January and pre-orders are likely to open early next week. Pricing is expected to be around the same as the Reno10 series – starting from Ksh 57,000 but we’ll have to wait for official details later next week.
One More Thing
OPPO might also launch the Reno11 F which will be a relatively affordable version of the Reno11 series.
It will have the same features as the rest of its siblings except for a few differences such as using the same 64MP primary camera from the Reno10 series. It will miss out on the portrait telephoto and instead have a 2MP macro sensor.
