An elegant product deserves an elegant heralding and smartphone giants, OPPO pulled all the stops when it ushered its latest product, OPPO F11 Pro, into the Nigerian market.

At a glamorous event held at the prestigious Oriental Hotel in Lagos, in front of a thrilled and expectant audience, the OPPO F11 Pro was unveiled and its world class functionalities revealed.

The event kicked off with a red carpet session where invited guests were welcomed by graceful hostesses. Afterwards they were hosted to light refreshments as they interacted and awaited the commencement of the event proper.

The soothing sound of live saxophone not only entertained the audience, it also put them in a perfect mood for the exquisite showing which followed.

MC of the night, Do2tun brought the event to life with a smooth introduction, not just of the event, but of the product as well. Marketing Manager of OPPO Nigeria, Nengi Akinola took the stage afterwards and wowed the audience, not only with her elegance but also a smooth rendition of the exact purpose of the event.

OPPO’s international expansion

She noted that OPPO is devoted to building an international brand and 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of its international expansion. In those 10 years, the smartphone giant has made inroads into 40 countries, grabbing 187 International awards in the process. These awards include, CNet Best Phone Award, Mobile Choice One to Watch Award, GSM Arena Best Looking Phone, etc.

Next on the stage was Product Manager, Sope Sogbesan who broke down both the design and functionality of OPPO F11 Pro using intelligent words and smart videos.


Sope explains that OPPO F series is moving from selfie expert to portrait masters.

The phone comes with 48mp and 5mp dual cameras. Boasting a panoramic lens with a 90.9% scan ratio, its main camera is hidden and automatically rises when in use and reclines after use. Because symmetry is of utmost importance to the brand, the rear camera is at the same axis with the front camera. Its higher pixel quality therefore gives it awesome low light performance.

Photographer’s delight

Celebrity photographer, Anny Roberts confirmed that OPPO F11 Pro shoots portraits like no other.
