OPPO Reno11 Pro Deserves More Coverage As It’s Truly Amazing

For the past month & then some, I have attended a number of new phone launches but so far I have yet to attend any OPPO media event. However 2 weeks ago just before Chinese New Year, I collected the OPPO Reno11 Pro for review. I love the look/design as it’s inspired by one of my favourite gemstones, the pearl. But my very 1st impression was just how light and thin the phone is and no wonder – it weighs 181g and is 7.59mm thin in Rock Grey and 7.66mm thin in Pearl White (mine is Peal White).

Some higher-end phones I’ve used have screens that are fingerprint magnets and I have to keep wiping the screen but the OPPO Reno11 Pro’s screen is smudge-free. If ever there was a phone that looks like an infinity pool, it would be the OPPO Reno11 Pro’s screen.

Everyone I have shown the OPPO Reno11 Pro to marvels at its lightness and thinness. The back of the phone has such a smooth finish. Reno11 Pro in Pearl White is made possible by OPPO’s Shimmering Pearl Design. This method combines three visually distinct layers, each shining through at different angles. The most surface-level is a textured-looking flourish, atop no less than 3.6 million tiny reflective surfaces that create a signature glimmering lustre. These are set against an almost iridescent pearl-esque sheen.

Another fun fact about the Pearl White:  The purest of tones, if its pigment is even slightly off, its exquisite nature is lost. This is one of the reasons why creating Reno11 Pro’s exact white finish saw more than 60,000 pieces of glass tested before the final colour and finish were chosen. Indeed, it has a gorgeous sheen that is unlike other phones.

The back of the Reno11 Pro is even more impressive than the front

Similar to the Reno11, The Reno 11 Pro features elegantly contrasting, geometric Sunshine Ring camera designs. With both phones’ Ultra-Clear Portrait Camera Systems within, this setup consists of two confident circles housed within a metallic belt, each circle directing light so focus falls in the lenses, teasing both phones’ advanced portrait photography capabilities. Personally, I feel that this feature makes the phone design so unique and special. It gives exceptionally chic and sophisticated vibes.

The phone’s battery is long-lasting and so fast charging that you never have to wait long. Reno11 Pro keeps you going from morning to night with its 4600mAh battery, so you can enjoy its sleek style, stunning screen and incredible portrait camera all-day long.

OPPO’s 80W SUPERVOOCTM Flash Charging* gives you hours of use in minutes of charging, powering up by 24% in just 5 minutes. Leaving many top-end flagships in the dust, Reno11 Pro charges up to 100% in an impressive 28 minutes when time is of the essence. When I collected the phone, the battery was at 1%, It wasn’t long before it got to 20% once I started charging it at home.

The camera is rather outstanding as everything looks so bright and vivid through the lens. There are 3 main cameras, i.e.:

50MP main camera
Sony IMX890 sensor
1/1.56” sensor size
f/1.8 aperture lens + OIS
24mm focal length

As light soars through Reno11 Pro’s fast f/1.8 aperture lens with its wide 24mm equivalent focal length lens with optical image stabilisation (OIS), it hits the large 1/1.56”, 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor for a detail-rich photo.

This 50MP ultra-clear main camera with OIS and OPPO’s next-generation HyperTone Imaging Engine makes capturing dynamic lowlight shots, backlit subjects and objects, and stunning landscapes a simple case of point-and-shoot.

32MP portrait camera
Sony IMX709 sensor
1/2.74” sensor size
f/2 aperture lens
47mm focal length

With a 47mm equivalent optical focal length, Reno11 Pro’s 32MP, 2x telephoto camera captures with a classical point of view for portraits, similar to the perspective of a human eye.

The Sony IMX709 sensor powering the Reno11 Pro telephoto camera doesn’t just capture crisp, detailed photos, it also features an RGBW pixel arrangement for a 60% increase in photosensitivity and 35% less noise than comparable traditional sensors.

And with the new flagship algorithm and advanced in-sensor zoom technology, Reno11 Pro also has a quality zoom, capturing crisp shots at up to 5x.
