April 24, 2019, Nairobi – OPPO has officially launched its latest OPPO F11 series – F11 Pro and F11 smartphone in the Kenya market.

The F11 series upgrades from “selfie expert” to “portrait master”, featuring a 48-megapixel (MP) image sensor to provide users with an unprecedented night photography experience. For the first time, software and hardware upgrades combine to improve battery life, gaming performance, and user experience in a device.

In addition, the F11 Pro boasts an uninterrupted full screen display (Panoramic Screen) made possible by a hidden front camera module rising up when required.

“OPPO F11 series debuts in the Kenya market to offer our customers an opportunity to collect their day to day memories, especially when with family and friends without the fear of having low quality photos even in low light condition. The innovation from selfie to portrait master is a first in the world and enhances OPPO’s position in the smartphone market,” said Muthoni Wachira, OPPO Kenya PR and Communications Manager.

A New Design Experience: From Trend to Art

OPPO has also achieved breakthroughs in design, incorporating vigorous natural beauty into the F11 series via gradient color design.

The international smartphone manufacturer has devoted much attention to the 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 Full HD+ 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 Panoramic 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.

The F11 series features much elaborate design, retaining the experience-optimized crescent design from the previous generation, but also adding a transparent, amber-colored hidden camera module. When the camera rises up, users are treated to a stunning visual experience.

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. To help users capture great photos anytime and anywhere, OPPO has made considerable efforts to make it easier to shoot sharp and marvelous portrait at night. 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 Tetra cell technology analyzes 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.

The F11 series also employs Ultra Night Mode and Dazzle Color Mode technologies. These technologies leverage AI and multi-frame noise reduction to achieve noise reduction, handheld stabilization, highlight suppression, and enhanced dynamic range. These all combine to enable users to capture levels of brightness and detail that normally exceed the limits of the human eye. When capturing a night portrait, the F11 series automatically distinguishes between a human face and the background, ensuring the human is the focus of the scene.

Employing a 48 MP lens, Ultra Night Mode, and Dazzle Color Mode, the OPPO F11 series features a combination of hardware and software applications that allow users to easily capture sharp and stunning night portraits.

The F11 series not only captures excellent portraits with its rear camera, but also continues the “selfie expert” tradition of the F-series. Selfies taken with the F11 series are as natural and beautiful as ever.

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 leverages a new FFC algorithm, shortening charging time by 20 minutes compared to the previous generation, which means the F11 series can be charged within 80 minutes.

In terms of safety, OPPO has customized special adapters, batteries, cables, circuits and interfaces, and developed its intelligent five layers of protection technology to keep users safe. Now, VOOC has over 90,000,000 users around the world. The F11 series also reduces power consumption through optimized hardware and software technology. 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. Thus, the F11 series achieves a longer battery life via faster charging technology, a larger-capacity battery, and lower power consumption.

In regard to gaming, OPPO has independently developed its own performance acceleration engine called Hyper Boost, optimized for 11 popular mobile games, including PUBG and AOV. By optimizing the system resource mobilization plan, hardware resources can be utilized more effectively, resulting in faster game response, no disconnections, and no dropped frames. Meanwhile, OPPO has introduced two useful tools — Game Space and Game Assistant, providing gamers with a more immersive gaming experience.

The F11 Pro and F11 are also equipped with the new ColorOS 6 system, specially designed for full screen smartphones. The innovative borderless design further increases ease of use. In addition, ColorOS 6 has multiple functions, including OPPO Cloud Service, Smart Assistant, and Gesture Navigation, allowing users to experience a smarter lifestyle.
