The previous generation OPPO K10x, eight months after its official release, is still among the top 20 on JD.com’s May mobile phone gold list, which shows its strong product strength.

This time, the author got the iterative product of this listed model in advance – OPPO K11x. After more than half a year, will this new phone bring us surprises? Can it continue the brilliance of the previous generation? Let’s continue reading.

The new OPPO K11x comes in two colors: ink jade and pearl light. The author got the ink jade color that highlights the texture while remaining stable. This color is really like ink jade, with a low-key and deep black color blended into the emerald green jade. From a distance, it looks like a deep ink, but in the reflection of light, it also shows a touch of green hidden under the black.

In addition, the 2.8D micro-arc back cover is cleverly connected to the right-angle frame of the body. Coupled with the lightweight body design of less than 200g, the grip is very comfortable, and there is no pressure even for prolonged use.

On the front, the OPPO K11x is equipped with a 6.72-inch 120Hz high-frame competitive screen. The 6.72-inch large screen display can make watching TV series and movies more enjoyable. The 120Hz high frame rate brings silky smooth screen display and smoother operation experience.

The OPPO K11x also has a movie-level wide color gamut that covers 100% DCI-P3. The color performance is outstanding, whether watching movies or playing mobile games, users can enjoy excellent image quality. Additionally, this model is also very eye-friendly. With all-day AI intelligent eye protection, it supports DC dimming, which can achieve clear visibility under strong light and reduce eye strain under low light, always caring for users’ eye health.

The OPPO K11x is equipped with a brand new 100 million pixel main camera, coupled with 9-in-1 pixel fusion technology, which can bring an effective 1.92μm ultra-sensitive large pixel. It can fully meet users’ daily photography needs, presenting better shooting results both indoors and outdoors.

During the trial, the author was very fond of the 3x zoom shortcut button, which was very fast in the 1x and 3x zoom process, allowing users to quickly capture the exciting moments they want. Thanks to the ultra-high 108MP pixel, the 3x zoom can also save the clear texture details, improving the image quality.

In addition, the OPPO K11x also provides various image feature functions in the software, both for the front and rear cameras, users can achieve their desired image effects. Below are some sample photos taken with the device.

OPPO K11x, as a mid-range model that emphasizes cost performance, high performance is not its style, balance and power saving are what it needs to consider. Therefore, this model is equipped with an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chip based on advanced 6nm low-power process technology, with a high frequency of up to 2.2GHz, excellent performance and reduced power consumption. Compared with the previous generation CPU, the performance is improved by 15%, and the graphics performance is increased by 30%. After actual testing, the Antutu benchmark score can reach the level of 420,000+, which can basically meet users’ daily use.

In terms of storage, OPPO K11x has three memory combinations: 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB, and 12GB+256GB. It also provides memory expansion technology, with three expansion space options of 4GB/6GB/8GB, which users can adjust according to their actual needs. The highest can achieve a super large memory space equivalent to 12GB+8GB, improving the number of background applications retained on the phone and accelerating application startup speed. In addition, with the new ColorOS supercomputing platform, through the comprehensive tuning of four calculation engines, the system’s fluency and stability have been comprehensively improved.

The performance of OPPO K11x in games may not be as good as flagship models, but it excels in having smooth stability. When the author tried playing “King of Glory”, the game’s graphics settings were set to high frame rate and ultra-high resolution, with a total picture quality of high definition, and anti-aliasing and water surface reflection effects were turned on. After the phone was switched to gaming mode, the game frame rate remained stable at around 60fps, even during team battles and pushing the crystal, there was no obvious frame rate fluctuation.

Summer is coming soon, and the test for mobile phone heat dissipation has become more stringent. The Snapdragon 695 selected by this OPPO K11x is a chip that pays great attention to low power consumption, and it also uses diamond thermal conductive gel and high thermal conductivity graphite for heat dissipation, making the phone’s heat dissipation performance even better. In addition, OPPO has also placed multiple temperature sensors in the core heat source inside the phone, which can sense the phone temperature in real time and achieve intelligent temperature control of hardware and software systems.

In terms of battery life, OPPO K11x uses a more balanced fast charging battery combination – a long-life version of 67W super flash charging and a 5000mAh large battery. In a one-hour “King of Glory” matching mode, OPPO K11x dropped from 100% to 93%, a decrease of only 7 points. In terms of charging, this long-life version of the super flash charging can greatly reduce the charging time. The official statement is that it can be charged from 1% to 80% in 33 minutes. After actual testing, from the battery depletion to automatic shutdown and screen-off charging, it took 10 minutes to charge to 25%, 30 minutes to charge to 72%, and 44 minutes for the battery to reach 100%. For a 5000mAh large battery phone, this charging speed is quite satisfying.

In addition, the OPPO K11x is equipped with a self-developed smart battery health engine. After experiencing 1600 cycles of charging and discharging, the health of the battery can still be maintained at over 80%. The official said that the phone’s battery will still be durable after 4 years.

In other aspects, the OPPO K11x fully taps into the maximum volume of the speaker, achieving a 200% call volume. By customizing and optimizing the high-pitched scene, the high-pitched sound is clear and loud without breaking, so it can present better volume performance both in external playback and calls.

In addition, worth mentioning is that the OPPO K11x also has a 3.5mm headphone jack. Friends who are used to using wired headphones can seamlessly use this phone, and there are no limits to audio and video entertainment.

Overall, the OPPO K11x is a model worth buying in the thousand-yuan price range. Whether it’s appearance, hardware performance, or daily use, it can meet users’ basic needs. The ColorOS 13.1 system that the OPPO K11x is equipped with has also won the annual smooth system certification from authoritative platforms and has a good reputation among consumers.

In addition, the OPPO brand has its own factory for manufacturing and production, and this model has passed 109 flagship-level rigorous testing standards, ensuring quality. In terms of after-sales service, OPPO has nearly 1000 service centers across the country, providing services such as 1-hour open quick repair and visualized mailing repair, so users don’t have to worry about after-sales service being unsupported.
