Oppo is gearing up to launch its Reno 11 series smartphones in India and other global markets on January 11. The lineup will include the Reno 11 and Reno 11 Pro, which were unveiled in China in late November. However, the global variants of these phones may come with a different processor than the Chinese models, according to some leaks.
Reno 11 series may get a chip ‘downgrade’ in India
According to tipster Ishan Agarwal, the Reno 11 series launching in India may get a chip ‘downgrade’ compared to the Chinese models. He claims that the vanilla Reno 11 will feature the MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC, which is less powerful than the Dimensity 8200 SoC that powers the Chinese Reno 11. The Reno 11 Pro, on the other hand, may come with either the Dimensity 8200 or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC, which is the same as the Chinese Reno 11 Pro.
The reason for this possible change in chipset is not clear, but it could be due to supply constraints or cost considerations. The Dimensity 8200 and Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 are both flagship-grade processors, while the Dimensity 1080 is a mid-range chip.
Reno 11 series design and display
The design and display of the Reno 11 series are expected to be the same as the Chinese models. Both phones will feature a 6.7-inch OLED display with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera and curved edges. The Reno 11 Pro will have a higher resolution of 2772×1240 pixels and a higher peak brightness of 1600 nits, while the Reno 11 will have a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels and a peak brightness of 950 nits. Both displays will support a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+.
The rear panel of the Reno 11 series will sport a large oval-shaped camera module with three sensors and an LED flash. The phones will have a glass back with a gradient finish and a metal frame. The Reno 11 series will also feature an in-display fingerprint sensor and a USB Type-C port. However, they will lack a 3.5mm headphone jack and FM radio.
Reno 11 series cameras and battery
The Reno 11 series will boast impressive cameras, especially on the Reno 11 Pro. The Reno 11 Pro will have a 50MP Sony IMX890 main sensor with OIS and f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens with 112-degree field of view and f/2.2 aperture, and a 32MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and f/2 aperture. The Reno 11 will have a similar setup, except for the main sensor, which will be a 50MP Sony LYT600 sensor with OIS and f/1.8 aperture.
Both phones will have a 32MP selfie shooter with f/2.4 aperture. The Reno 11 series will support 4K video recording at 30fps, 1080p video recording at 60fps, and 720p slow-motion video recording at 480fps.
The Reno 11 series will also have a decent battery capacity and fast charging support. The Reno 11 Pro will pack a 4700mAh battery with 80W fast wired charging, while the Reno 11 will have a slightly larger 4800mAh battery with 67W fast wired charging. Both phones will also support reverse charging to charge other devices.
Reno 11 series software and price
The Reno 11 series will run on Oppo’s new ColorOS 14 software, which is based on Android 14. The software will offer a revamped user interface, improved performance, enhanced privacy, and new features like floating windows, smart sidebar, and game space.
The Reno 11 series price in India is not confirmed yet, but it is expected to be similar to the Chinese pricing. The Reno 11 Pro is tipped to cost Rs 46,500 for the 12GB+256GB variant and Rs 48,700 for the 12GB+512GB variant. The Reno 11 is expected to start at Rs 32,450 for the 8GB+256GB variant and go up to Rs 37,000 for the 12GB+512GB variant.
