Redoubling its bet on the Brazilian smartphone market, Oppo invited the TecMundo to go to London to discover the brand’s newest launch: the Oppo Reno 11F.

And in fact, we didn’t just get our hands on the device, we also went to see a little of the city, watch the Champions League final and, of course, put the phone to the test, especially its rear and selfie cameras.

Initially, let’s talk about the specifications. The Oppo Reno 11F has a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, Full HD Plus resolution, refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, peak brightness of 1,200 nits and Panda Glass protection against scratches.

Inside, the device comes with the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 processor, which is an intermediate chip focused on energy efficiency. This processor is accompanied by 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage and connectivity with 5G and WiFi 6 networks.

The battery that powers all of this is 5,000 mAh, which is the standard for most intermediaries nowadays, but the charger is a 67 Watt SuperVOOC, which promises to charge the device’s battery from scratch in 48 minutes.

What I realized after a day or two of use is that it does indeed have fast charging. Of course, only in a more in-depth test will we be able to verify the issue, but it can be said that the battery holds up well.

It arrived with 30, 40% charge at the end of my day. And look, I used it a lot to take photos and record a lot of video.

Operating System and AI Eraser

The operating system of the Oppo Reno 11F is Android 14 and its interface is modified by ColorOS 14.0. Among the highlights of the OS are artificial intelligence features such as AI Eraser, which allows you to erase objects with a simple touch.

Although it isn’t available on the Reno 11F yet, I tested the functionality using the Oppo Find X7 Ultra, which we also used in London.

I know that this technology is very similar to what Google and Samsung promise in their recent launches, the Pixel and the Galaxy S24, but this was my first time actually using this functionality. And it feels like magic.

You can take a really good photo, but it has an element that gets in the way, and simply circle it and that’s it! And you can clean an entire photo. This AI Eraser function was a huge success in Oppo’s press trip that TecMundo was invited.

According to Oppo, the Reno 11F will receive this feature soon.

Are the Reno 11F cameras good?

The Reno 11F has three cameras on the rear, the main one being 64 MP with f/1.7 aperture, a 117º ultrawide with 8 MP and f/2.2 aperture and a 2 MP macro with f/2.4 aperture. Completing the set, the selfie camera has 32 MP and f/2.4 aperture.

And what I can say is that the performance of the lenses is very satisfactory. One of the highlights is the slow motion. They don’t record in 4K, as 4K only goes up to 30 fps, but slow motions perform very decently.

We went to a football game to capture moving images and, in that game, I recorded a slow-motion video of Kaká, a former Brazilian national team star, falling on his butt. Jokes aside, it showed how satisfying this function is.

And slow motion still has 1080p@480fps options and even 720p@960fps, which is exaggeration. But in fact, these other two are a little more difficult to record. I managed to catch one or two cool things, but it takes a long time to load and configure the clip, that is, closing the clip as soon as you stop after finishing recording.

Regarding other aspects of the cameras, the levels of detail and deep black, both in video and photos, are also very satisfactory. I believe that the cameras performed much better in Pro mode, of course, than in automatic mode, which is a warning point.

For the normal user, like me, we will take our cell phone out of our pocket and take a photo. And in these cases, in moving images, I felt a problem with some blurring. Taking a photo of a player, the post-processing made him have an outline around him looking like an aura.

In Pro mode this is different. For example, in photos I took where there are several players moving at the same time, they are all captured very well because we increase the ISO and set the shutter speed higher to capture better images. And it worked, at least for me. But it’s not that simple to take photos on the move with the Reno 11F.

Are the photos taken at night by the Reno 11F good?

The front camera of Oppo’s Reno 11F performed well too. I personally liked it, nothing to say here. Regarding the performance of the cameras at night, there is one point: night photos in environments with some point of light look very beautiful.

However, when you are in a more closed environment, with less lighting, without any point of light, like in a restaurant I was in which had low lighting, you will see that the camera’s performance is not satisfactory at all.

The macro lens also leaves something to be desired. However, no 2 MP macro camera is going to be great. It’s cool to have the feature, but from what I’ve been able to test, the resolution isn’t that good. You will even be able to record an insect you saw around, but it won’t be that photo that wins a prize.

Unlike night photos without light spots and the macro lens, portrait photos are satisfactory. In general terms, in both video and photo modes, the sharpness, detail levels and deep blacks are very good.

The color balance is also very interesting, and for an intermediate cell phone I believe that the camera performed above average. At least in what is proposed.

Oppo Reno 11F price and availability

The Oppo Reno 11F is expected to arrive in Brazil in the first week of July and will come with a suggested price of R$2,999. But I think you can get a better price.

I consider this value to be very high for an intermediate cell phone. It does what it sets out to do, it’s a good smartphone, but for R$2,999, I wouldn’t buy it. I would wait for it to go down a bit or else, if you can get a good discount, it might be worth it.

And the price of the imported version is a little lower than the Reno 11F. You can find it at online retailers for around R$2,900. For you, if you find a promotion, an official resale guarantee in Brazil or even this discount, do you think it’s worth the price they are charging?
