We are standing on the beach in Desaru, a gentle sea breeze cutting through blazing heat. A small crowd has gathered in front of a stage, where a speaker is about to unveil the latest addition to OPPO’s slate of smart devices. The coastal town turns out be the perfect location for this launch—we soon come to learn that these new gadgets have been inspired by the very same sun, sea and sand we are surrounded by.
OPPO’s Reno series has always been known for its sleek, elegant design. The flagship model has pushed the boundaries of style and function—fitting impressive technological features into an extraordinarily slim and lightweight body.
The newest instalment to the series is no different. Launched globally this month, the OPPO Reno11 Pro raises the bar on design excellence with a striking silhouette contoured carefully for the perfect hold. Available in two colours, its buttery-smooth back—now fingerprint-proof—gleams with multi-dimensionality, thanks to a kaleidoscopic triple-layered design.
Pearl White, a glittery cream shade that reflects the blinding glow of the coastal sun, is made by incorporating 3.6 million tiny reflective surfaces to create its signature lustre and satin finish. A more subtle take arrives in Rock Grey, which flaunts a soft grey-black finish under a smooth frosted glass back, glistening like sand under a breathtaking sunset.
Rising from this glass back is a visually-cohesive Sunshine Ring camera module, which houses one of the Reno11 Pro’s most impressive features: a powerful new portrait camera system. This nifty piece of equipment boasts significant improvements in hardware, shining with its 47mm-equivalent 32MP telephoto camera which replicates the perspective of a human eye, lending your portraits a truly professional feel. Enhanced zoom capabilities also allow the device to achieve crisp shots at up to 5x zoom.
This potent hardware is matched with an intuitive new Portrait Mode, bringing with it incredible subject, object, and edge separation, alongside adjustable bokeh for a truly customisable portrait photography experience. With adept colour reproduction and a dynamic range, this allows you to capture the warmth and softness in any scene. Each portrait you capture is instantly treated by a more intelligent AI retouching feature, resulting in fine-tuned photos which don’t compromise a subject’s natural skin tone or erase unique characteristics like moles or birthmarks.
Taken together, the camera features on OPPO Reno11 Pro are akin to having a photo studio in your pocket. But when you’re not capturing memories and immortalising moments, there are plenty of other thoughtful system upgrades to look forward to.
ColorOS 14 brings with it a host of new abilities, leading to a smoother and more entertaining user experience. With File Dock, photos, web pages and other useful elements can be collected in an invisible folder that appears exactly when you need it to, while Smart Touch captures images, text, and even text within images from a screenshot with ease. Meanwhile, integrations with apps like Grab allow you to receive detailed updates on upcoming bookings without ever leaving your home screen.
The Reno11 Pro is powered by the advanced MediaTek Dimensity 8200 chipset, allowing the device to seamlessly manage demanding tasks like 4K video capture and editing—or mobile gaming, if that’s more your speed. The device’s expansive, nearly borderless screen beams with over a billion colours, offering a smooth, deep and immersive visual experience.
As you indulge in the repertoire of new features of the Reno11 Pro, don’t worry about running out of juice. With a large 4600mAh battery alongside OPPO’s Battery Health Engine, look forward to uninterrupted use—allowing you to bring your device from day to night without a second thought.
