Even though the Oppo brand is still relatively new in the Nigerian smartphone market, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has been in business since 2004 and is in the list of top 5 smartphone manufacturers worldwide.
Oppo officially launched in Nigeria in April 2019 – even though some of its smartphone devices have been in the market before then. In this article, we will single out the best 5 Oppo smartphones released so far into the Nigerian market.
Oppo F11 Pro
One very unique feature of the Oppo F11 Pro is the pop-up selfie shooter that is attached to the device. This has helped Oppo tremendously trim down the size of bezels on the smartphone. The pop-up selfie design makes it possible to have a 19.5:9 aspect ratio on the Oppo F11 Pro’s 6.53 inches screen. The pop-up camera is a 16MP shooter with the ability to capture fantastic images both in bright light and low light situations, capture images in Pro Mode, Panorama, HDR, and Portrait mode. Also, it has a dual 48MP (primary camera) and 5MP (depth sensor) back cameras as well, with the same abilities.
The internal storage of the device comes with options; 64GB and 128GB internal memory capacity. But you do not get more than that as there is no slot for MicroSD card. For the RAM, you have two options to choose from; either 4gb or 6gb.
Its battery is a non-removable 4,000mAh, and charges from 0% to 100% in about 80-minutes. The Oppo F11 Pro is available on Jumia Nigeria for ₦113,000
Oppo 10X Zoom
This device was released mid-way through the year. It comes as a 6.6-inch phablet, a bezel-less display, and is equipped with a 10x hybrid zoom capability. The screen size makes it a perfect device for gamers. Just like the Oppo F11 Pro, it has a ‘shark fin’ pop-up camera, but this time, it comes up diagonally on the side of the device.
The pop-up camera has a 16MP sensor and a f/2.0 aperture which lets users record videos in HD. It also comes with 3 back cameras that work together; the main 48MP camera is assisted by an ultra-wide-angle camera with an 8MP sensor, and a telephoto camera with 13 megapixels. It has a 4065mAh battery. The three cameras work over three different focal ranges and they are able to achieve a bandwidth of up to 160mm (a focal length 10 times that of the main camera lens).
The reason the Oppo 10x zoom made this list is its ability to zoom in on distant images (up to 10x).
Oppo, as you might have noticed, try to make all their devices as bezel-free as possible. The Oppo Reno has a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with thin edges which makes the device look almost bezel-less.
The Oppo Reno, just like the previous devices we’ve talked about, comes with a pop-up camera with allows for an impressive 93.1% screen-to-body ratio. The pop-up camera is a 16MP with LED light while at the rear of the device, there is a dual 48MP and 5MP cameras. For RAM/internal storage, there are options to choose from; 6GB RAM and 128GB storage capacity, and a 6GB/8GB RAM + 256GB internal storage capacity. It has a 3765mAh battery and also a VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 technology that helps you charge super-fast.
