As for the phones, Oppo is marketing them as your ultimate low-light photography companions. The company is banking on AI and what it calls Ultra Night Mode to work magic in conjunction with the dual 48MP standard and 5MP depth-sensing lenses on the back to deliver some of the best night-time shots. In portrait mode. How true this is remains to be seen.
The selfie camera is a single-lens unit, but Oppo claims it’s no pushover either, tucking in Beautification 2.1 that recognizes up to 137 facial data points to deliver a refined beautification effect.
Gamers will also enjoy using either phone not only because of the expansive 6.5-inch display screens and powerful performance specs, but also the inclusion of a game center and something Oppo calls Hype Boost that accelerates performance to ensure smooth gaming and multitasking experience.
With big screens comes heavy battery consumption. To take care of this, Oppo F11 and F11 Pro have just about the same 4000mAh battery unit that can be fast-charged using VOOC Flash Charge 3.0, promising a full charge in 80 minutes. Why Oppo would go for a microUSB port instead of the future-proof USB-C is still baffling, especially when you consider the pricing of the phones.
If already wondering, there aren’t so many differences between the Oppo F11 and F11 Pro. In fact, the most noticeable differences are the display screen and selfie camera, where the latter has a selfie camera that pops up while the former’s is housed in a waterdrop notch. This means the Pro model has a full-screen design.
The two also have some differences in memory options available, which is about it. You can check out their respective specs below to get a better picture of what each one brings over the other.
