The Oppo F11 Pro stands out from a crowded smartphone market for its design and the pop-up selfie camera. With the F11 Pro, Oppo has gotten rid of the notch altogether, and consumers now get a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display without any hindrance in viewing experience.

In terms of hardware, the Oppo F11 Pro is powered by MediaTek Helio P70 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage.

The F11 Pro also features dual rear camera setup with a combination of 48-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary shooter. The primary camera used here is the Sony IMX586 sensor, which is same as the one used on Honor View20 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
