Following a rather successful year that 2018 was for Oppo with devices like the Oppo Find X, the company is pushing the same momentum into 2019. After a global unveiling back in March, the two Oppo F-devices of 2019, successors to last year’s F10 are now officially available in the country.
Perhaps the most hyped and headlining feature of the pair has to be the pop-up camera of the F11 Pro. The regular F11 has make do with the teardrop notch we saw on the predecessor.
The two new devices are near identical with the Pro version boasting of only the pop-up selfie shooter over the regular version. The specs include;
- Dual Sim, 3G, 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi
- Octa Core, 2.1 GHz Processor
- 6 GB RAM, 64 GB inbuilt
- 4000 mAh Battery with VOOC Fast Charging
- 6.5 inches, 1080 x 2340 px Display
- 48 MP + 5 MP Dual Rear + 16 MP Front Camera
- Memory Card Supported, up to 256 GB
- Android 9.0
Speaking during the launch, Muthoni Wachira, PR and Communication manager OPPO revealed plans for the introduction of 5G smartphones and Internet of Things products to the market.
