After launches from Xiaomi and vivo, OPPO is the next to unveil a new phone in China. This time, OPPO is focusing on the budget flagship segment with the Reno11 series. While we’re not expecting true flagship-caliber specs, OPPO boldly claims that the Reno11 series can take SLR-like photos.
While countless brands have been pushing for this claim, OPPO might have a few tricks with the Reno11 series. Beyond the unusual camera layout, rumors state that OPPO will use Sony’s LYT sensors just like the Find N3. On paper, Sony’s LYT sensors offer better imaging performance than most of its IMX sensors, and our first impressions with the Find N3 prove that.
Starting with the Reno11 Pro, rumors state that it will be much closer to the Reno10 Pro+ with its 120hz curved AMOLED display and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. As for the cameras, the Reno11 Pro will have the same 32-megapixel 2x telephoto and 8-megapixel ultra-wide, while the main camera is a new 50-megapixel LYT-700 sensor. Its battery capacity will be the same, though its wired charging speed is lower at 80w.
As for the standard Reno11, it will reportedly have a 120hz curved AMOLED display as well. It will have a Dimensity 8200 processor that’s significantly better than the Dimensity 7050 used on the standard Reno10 and a LYT-600 main camera. The standard Reno11’s ultra-wide and telephoto cameras will be the same as the Pro. Its battery will reportedly be slightly smaller at 4800mAh, but you still get 67w wired charging.
OPPO confirmed on its page that the Reno11 series will be unveiled in China on November 23.
