48+5MP Dual rear camera for Ultra-clear Image + Ultra-clear Night Mode for Night Photography
Supported by OPPO’s powerful camera technology, F11, and F11 Pro are both equipped with the most advanced camera system of the F series. As the rear camera has been greatly upgraded, F11 and F11 Pro feature an ultra-high standard 48MP+5MP dual camera system, F1.79 aperture, ball-bearing closed-loop VCM, 6P lens, and 1/2.25-inch image sensors to bring more light. In bright light environments, the devices can directly output 48MP ultra HD pictures. In dark environments, F11 series’ “Tetracell technology” analyzes and combines the data acquired by four adjacent pixels to make it equivalent to a single pixel size of 1.6μm, doubling the size of the photosensitive pixel and shooting brighter and low-noise night portraits.
F11 and F11 Pro are also powered by ultra-night mode and Dazzle color mode, which is, OPPO’s system-level optimization solution specially designed for smartphone photography. This solution automatically recognizes the shooting scene and matches it with the targeted optimization solution. In ultra-night mode, it distinguishes between portraits and backgrounds, focuses on faces, and adjusts skin color in night portraits to enliven the overall effect. This also intelligently reduces the overall noise, suppressing highlights, improving the dynamic range, and increasing the brightness of dark areas to make night shots clean and clear.
Through a flawless combination of hardware and software, OPPO F11 and F11 Pro offer an exceptionally robust rear camera capability, enabling young consumers to easily capture the world and record all the delightful moments of their lives.
From Selfie Expert to Portrait Master
OPPO has worked for years to advance the field of selfie photography, and with the F11 series has taken the next step to propel users to portrait master. The F11 series is equipped with a 48 MP image sensor and F1.79 large aperture. Together with a 6P lens, the camera can sense more light when shooting in low light conditions, ensuring more details are captured. When capturing a night portrait, the included Tetracell technology analyses and combines data from four adjacent pixels to achieve the equivalent of a single 1.6μm pixel. Twice the number of photosensitive pixels improves light sensitivity and allows users to capture clearer night portraits.
Commenting on this, Mr. George Long, CEO OPPO Pakistan, said, “We want OPPO to be an innovator that brings the latest, high quality technology to our users. Now with the release of our 1st ever portrait phone, we have full faith that the OPPO F11 Pro with its 48+5 MP camera, Ultra Night mode and new Color OS 6 technology will allow OPPO users to experience outstanding photography even in low light, will prove to be a real game changer for the smartphone industry.”
A New Design Experience: From Trend to Art
OPPO has achieved breakthroughs in design, incorporating vigorous natural beauty into the F11 series via gradient color design.
OPPO advocates an aesthetic of “natural creation” and has captured the beauty of nature in the F11 Pro via breakthroughs in both materials and workmanship. OPPO is also the first smartphone manufacturer to create the first triple-color gradient design, Thunder Black. This unique design blends red and blue into classic black, akin to a meteor streaking across the night sky. OPPO also created a unique double-color gradient design, Aurora Green, which draws inspiration from vibrant blue oceans interwoven with lush green continents.
The F11 series comes equipped with a 6.5-inch FHD+ screen, featuring an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.9%. In particular, the F11 Pro features a hidden front camera module to free up space for its full screen display. The motor on the front camera modules has been thoroughly tested to ensure it can operate 100 times usage per day for 6 years without fail, thus ensuring a positive user experience.
From Photography to All Purpose
The F11 series also succeeds in upgrading the overall user experience. First, the F11 series comes equipped with a 4,000mAh battery, 500 mAh higher than the previous generation. The brand new VOOC 3.0 flash charging technology shortens charging time by 20 minutes compared to the previous generation, which means the F11 series can be charged within 80 minutes. The F11 series contains a low-power MTK P70 CPU and ram-equipped display, while it also accurately monitors app power consumption to optimize app performance.
The F11 and F11 Pro are also equipped with the new ColorOS 6 system, specially designed for full screen smartphones. The innovative borderless design further increases ease of use.
