After the successful launch of the Vivo V15 Pro with its pop-up camera, Oppo has come up with Oppo F11 Pro which has a pop-up camera which works in a similar fashion. Alongside the F11 Pro, the company has also launched the Oppo F11 which has a small notch cut-out instead of the pop-up camera. The company has priced the Oppo F11 at Rs. 37,990, the Oppo F11 Pro at Rs. 47,990 and the Avengers special edition F11 Pro at Rs. 49,990.
The Oppo F11 and the F11 Pro are the company’s upper mid-range phones with a focus on camera performance. That’s not to say that the performance of these devices is poor. The Oppo F11 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of Internal Storage. The F11, however, comes with only 4GB of RAM but surprisingly 128GB of internal storage. Both the Oppo F11 and the F11 Pro share the same screen size as well as the same Mediatek processor.
All the three phones are identical apart from the camera tech and the battery-size. The key features of the Oppo F11 and F11 Pro are as follows:
- 6.53-inch Full HD+ LCD display
- MediaTek Helio P70 SoC
- 4GB/6GB of RAM with 64GB/128GB of internal storage
- 48MP f/1.8+ 5MP f/2.4 rear camera
- 16MP f/2.0 front camera
- 4000mAh battery on the Oppo F11 and 4020mAh battery on the Oppo F11 Pro
In case you are wondering, the Avengers edition of the Oppo F11 Pro is the same as the regular Oppo F11 Pro with the only difference being the different theme and the color scheme you get in the special edition.
The Oppo F11 has a tear-drop notch on the front similar to what you can find in the OnePlus 6T. The Oppo F11 Pro has a motorized front camera which means there is no notch on the front. The bezels are also a bit smaller. Unfortunately, both the phones use LCD panels which while good aren’t as good of a panel as the ones found on the Vivo V15 Pro.
Since the phones don’t use the OLED display technology, there was no way for the company to implement under-display fingerprint scanner. As a result, you will find that there is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. While it may sound like you are not getting the latest and greatest technology, it really isn’t the case. The first generation fingerprint scanners aren’t all that great and are much slower than the rear scanner that you will find in the Oppo F11 and the F11 Pro.
Both the Oppo F11 and the F11 Pro have 48MP+5MP rear camera setup. As with most of its competitors, it uses pixel binning to produce high-quality 12MP images. The images from the camera come out good but disappointingly, neither of the phones can record video at 4K resolution. It’s one omission that is really hard to justify.
The Oppo F11 and the F11 pro come with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with Color OS 6 on top. You will also appreciate that the large 4000mAh cell can be quickly topped up using the 20W VOOC fast charger that is supplied in the box.
And then, there’s the question, are the Oppo F11 and the F11 Pro worth the money? In my honest opinion, the answer is not! While the F11 Pro’s pop-up camera may look fancy, it really doesn’t add much to the table. Not to mention, there are phones with better hardware and significantly better software at this price point. So, in my opinion, it’s certainly not worth spending Rs. 47,990 on the Oppo F11 Pro and Rs. 37,990 on the Oppo F11.
