CHINESE PHONE MAKER Oppo has shown off the F11 Pro, which drops some not-so-subtle hints about the OnePlus 7.
The F11 Pro's headline feature is its notch-less display, with Oppo instead adopting a pop-up selfie camera that gives the smartphone a 90.9 per cent screen-to-body that lets the 6.5in 1,080x2,340 display take centre stage.
Given Oppo's hushed links to fellow Chinese OEM OnePlus, we can expect the incoming OnePlus 7 to sport a similar design; Oppo's F7 featured the same notched display as the OnePlus 6, while the while F9 debuted the "waterdrop" notch that made its way onto the OnePlus 6T.
Elsewhere, the F11 Pro packs an octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 processor, backed up by either 4GB or 6GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB storage and a 4,000mAh battery that can be juiced quickly using Oppo's VOOC 3.0 tech.
There's no under-display fingerprint scanner onboard, with Oppo instead opting for a capacitive sensor on the rear. This sits underneath the handset's Xiaomi Mi 9-rivalling 48MP dual-lens camera array, which Oppo says boasts souped-up low-light capabilities thanks to its new Pixel-esque 'Ultra Night Mode.'
Around the front, you'll find a 16MP sensor inside the top-mounted motorised mechanism.
The Oppo F11 Pro also sports both a USB-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack, and Android 9 Pie runs underneath the firm's ColorOS 6 skin.
The smartphone is available now in India priced at Rs. 24,990 (around £270) and can be picked up in either Thunder Black or Aurora Green. There's no word yet on UK availability. µ
